There really should be someone jumping a shark in this strip.
I’m not saying that I ran out of jokes already, but on the particular day I wrote this strip I had run out of jokes already.
I still say that the gag is there, playing on the whole ‘Wellness Policy” that the WWE enforce. However, I feel it could have been better. Originally I wrote ‘Rager’ (see what I did there) as a character with a garden well for a head. However Mike, and this is the first time he has done this, pulled me up on it and implied that it may be too meta for you guys to get your simplistic heads around (actually, he just said the gag wasn’t strong enough, but I will turn that loveable guy into a heel yet!)
So, what are your thoughts? Did the joke work? Could you think of a better way to get it across? Send a self addressed stamped envelope to: You Suck Ben, 134 Boo St, Lamesville and I’ll be sure not to receive them.
