Sock Candy  |  Chicago Tribune “Kidnews” 10/05/93

Not my WORST cartoon, but certainly FAR from a favorite. Of course if you absolutely love it, I’ll go with your opinion, as these things are nothing if not subjective.

Pathetic but true childhood aside: Dreading going to elementary school, I thought I’d avoid it by being sick. Not quite knowing how to make myself sick given the limited resources of my bedroom, I took one of my dirty socks from the closet hamper and sucked on it as I fell asleep.

I woke up feeling no ill effects, and reluctantly went on my second grade way.

Original art available for $40.
