That is NO WAY Oprah.

I find sexual trickery works quite well, too. I met my husband doing theatre, and I'd often come to rehearsals wearing a Hypercolor t-shirt (remember them? if you put your hand on them, the place you touched would change color). I forced him to touch my breasts to see the material change. And forced him, and forced him, and...all in the name of science. And sex.

Fran: Believe me, I know. But it was getting late and I was losing patience. You should've seen the ones I didn't use! This was the one that looked the least unlike Oprah. I might try again later when I have that thing I used to have...what was it again?...oh yes, free time.

Mona: I have to say, that is some pret-ty straightforward trickery.

If you're like me, you need trickery that straightforward. In fact, that's a little indirect for me ("Hm. Does she know that's where she put my hands? Surely she'd have to know... and yet, perhaps not...")

I was in a relationship once for six months before I had any idea.

Re: Number Six
When drawing Oprah, you may find it helpful to draw either Steadman or Dr Phil two steps behind and on a leash.
Also, Tom Cruise has two distinct eyebrows in your depiction. That's one more than real life. Just FYI.

Thank you.

I've just blown more than 30 enjoyable minutes, and will now waste more time looking for a LiveJournal feed so I can read these as they're posted!

Is this advice for me personally? As someone who is looking for a foolish person to fall in love with me (and as someone who routinely wears low cut shirts, jumps on couches and is going to get blitzed tonight (today's my birthday, woooo!)), I feel like this whole cartoon was a gift to me. Thank you, Francis.

By the way, did you try drawing Simon Cowell when you drew Cruise? Because that seems to work...

Oh, it's the return of the "Woop". Great!

Perhaps not Oprah, but Harpo?

Also, I'm sure it wasn't meant as an anniversary present, but it was a great one nonetheless. Um, assuming panel # 1. Or, if that's a typo in the upper right and you meant to write v-o-d-k-a.

Thanks,

Good God!!! It's a good thing my boss was out of the office when I discovered this site today... I am sure I would have been fired after the excessive amounts of laughing (to the point of tears) I think I have found a new obsession.
