Animal Fears

By Paul | July 12, 2008

Here’s one of the rough ideas I came up with for MAD that didn’t float their boat.  I’ve found that even though MAD has felt sympatico enough with my humor style to invite submissions and print some of my meanderings, some of my favorites have not made the MAD grade.  This one rough, some of you may recall, I turned into a Pooch Sunday a few months back.

    Was there a rhyme or reason for the animals and what they are afraid of or did you just try to come up with funny words that could have a funny drawing? Love the rhino bit.

    I’m still loving the owl and bank slips. That is so out there, and yet, looking at the owl’s face, well…it somehow makes sense.

    As for them having meaning, some seem to make sense, like the sheep and popcorn maker, and some are more quizzical…but all funny.

    I just love how someone yelling “Hey Crabby!” upsets the crab.

    Did you see the one single tear coming from his eyestalks??? Love it, although I’m not sure if he’s phobic…seems more sensitive :lol:

    Not any real rhyme or reason I don’t think, mostly just trying to come up with funny images. I like the idea of a caterpillar trying to “hurry” out of the way of a jackhammer, or a giant squid sitting at a bar trying to enjoy a beer.
