I can only apologise
Posted by WG on June 27, 2011
I don’t even know what that means, but I’m taking it as a sign of approval
Rolling on floor with laughter… Yeah, it’s a compliment allright
Sorry, I meant to write ROFWL…..
OMG. I just barked out loud and now everyone in the office is staring at me.
Woof! Hoorah for that
It is my mission in life to disrupt office work, either by loud barks, or by the passage of coffee through the nose whilst reading cartoons
Coffee through the nose it is for me.
.. I get extra points if I get a coffee snort
Yep, you were true to your tweet. Bad pun indeed!
Well, there’s not much I can say to that.. I guess I’ll just go stand in the corner, and think about what I’ve done
*hands you your coat*
HAH! How about slaps in the other direction???
Ah now, just to prove that I do think about these things:
Drawing a “slap” from the therapist is funnier because it is safer – everyone “knows” that a therapist would never act out in that way. Making it the client that does the slapping would be far too close (imho) to what some clients may actually feel. And would no doubt lead to many many comments from both sides about how innappropriate that would be. In this case, it is so innapropriate and unlikely that it becomes ridiculous and therefore.. (hopefully) funnier.
In addition, because the therapist slapping is such an outrageously unlikely event, it plays with the balance of power between the two.. the idea that the highly (overly?) controlled therapist could ever break out like this is laughable, unrealistic, and therefore (as described above) the humour is “safe”.
The point of these cartoons is to mess with the power balance and to push the boundaries of the relationship, the theory behind it, and of course humour.
Well, you did ask
As a recovering Freudian, I assume that a Freudian slap would be a punch in the…id. You know, someplace really really tender.
Is that what’s happening off-camera?
Owwwwwwweeee! But also lol. great was to start the day. Love the color.
Thank you – I’m glad you enjoyed it
I never used to draw these in colour, but I like playing with it from time to time
I saw the cartoon this morning and it’s taken me all day to get it! Very funny – slap-slip! Thanks for that.
