Oral Love is dead?
…Well, that sucks.
Cheers and admiration for Kate, Rian, our pals at BOOM! Studios, and the little girl who we hope will grow up to be the World’s #1 Cartoonist.
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
Love this so much…

Step 18: Beatboxing toddlers.
Step 161: Give dogs the power of speech. But only while mating, and only to recite the “Do I Amuse You?” speech from Goodfellas in a canine approximation of Joe Pesci’s voice.
Step 22: Edit the score of every love scene from every copy of every movie and replace it with “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
Jeff Goldblum brings the beat.
Most importantly: you’re stronger than you think.
WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES
Baby ducks, apparently imprinted on the wrong mama. Luckily, she’s okay with it.
This one completely snuck up on me.
I can’t decide if
- someone stabbed someone else over a cheeseburger
- someone stabbed someone else with a cheeseburger
- someone stabbed a cheeseburger
- a cheeseburger stabbed someone
- a cheeseburger stabbed another cheeseburger
"A Cheeseburger in Paradise Lost" by Johnny Milton-Buffett
Yes, this is a real ad. It’ll be airing on Bravo and E! in some markets soon.
And the coolest part about it, to me, is that it somehow brings a touch of sexiness through the sweetness, and neither of them feels forced.
I think I was having an erotic dream last night, but when I woke up all I did was burp.
Consider the lily.
Yeah. Check the lily out.
Yo hey flowr.
I’m considerin’ ya.
