Between 2002-2010, I doodled a bunch of terribly punny comics that combined my love of wordplay and corny drawing skills. NitWits were the perfect creative container to let my silly out while allowing abstract freewriting to brainstorm through me. Some comics spawned coloring pages, cartoony lessons, and other imaginative things. These are among my favorite.
Which came first, the chicken or the eggo?
Ego is described as "the self as distinguished from others." And as I'm pecking my way through Murray Stein's "Jung's Map of the Soul", the glossary defines ego as "the center of consciousness, the 'I.'" Yes, two ways of saying eggproximately the same thing.
In a 'what if' stream of consciousness I envisioned what a free-range chicken taking an online Web quiz measuring his chicken-ness would look like.
The anima (or animus) of a chicken would feel most authentic in pecking answer #1 for this question. Like any predictable poultry, he would secretly wish to respond to the 'important' questions with the most eggtractive answers.
They run away!
Problem: It's late-night and you're craving carbs, tempted to eat something sweet and break your resolve.
Solution: Open up a bag of Runaway Gingerbread Man Cookies (RGM) Pull one out, and before you know it, he wiggles out of your hand, jumps to the floor, and runs away. What could be better for your diet than that!
Yes, they're cute. But that's never stopped you from snarfing down smiling goldfish crackers or Keebler E.L. Fudges, has it? So going beyond mere cuddly appearances, the real secret ingredient to the success of RGM cookies is they've been stacked and packaged in a green room in Fairy Tale Studios where hoards of the "smarter" out-foxing ones gathered after crossing the river without getting eaten. Their stories of how vary, and some have gone through some long recovery periods, but you can imagine how restless they are having waited all this time to be called back to work.
The good news is they're chock-full of energy, ready to run and sing — which you'll soon see how this works to your weight-loss advantage.
Don't you agree that the best diet cookie is the one that you don't eat?
