The Return of Stickman #1417

This strip is a throw back to earlier Return of Stickman strips. It was only after several hundred strips that I began using odd news stories as the primary inspiration for the strip. Before then it was anything that popped into my head. Sometime it would be a word I randomly pulled out of a nearby book. As I started to reach out more and more for material, the internet with its wealth of odd stories kept providing more and more of them. Then my fans got into the action and started to send me news stories they thought fit the bill. I don't even have to hunt anymore. I like to please my fans and I do get requests for some of the non-news humor. Today I return with a much love character who popped up quite a bit in the past.
