I found this kiwi fruit in the grass while walking to work just now. First I passed it. Then I went back and picked it up and saw that it was in very good condition and kept it. I like free food. Once, I stopped my car and ran across a roundabout to pick up a pack of Tesco’s Finest pears from the road.
A little farther along I smelled a fishy smell and looked down and saw shrimp.
They really were shrimp.
No packaging. No evidence that they had crawled from the sea or fought a bitter yet ultimately futile battle to escape from marauding seagulls. Just shrimp.

I did not take the shrimp as an accompaniment to my kiwi fruit.
I’m going to come out and say it: If you were to recommend me for the Tumblr directory under Illustrators, I’d come right over and kiss you on both cheeks. Would you do that for me if you think this blog is worth being directory-ised? (We don’t actually have to do the cheek kissing thing.)
You’re welcome. I quite enjoy following http://crimesagainsthughsmanatees.tumblr.com/ I think other people who like funny comics would too.
That worked out quite well for you didn’t it, hughbot? I’m guessing you’ll get Way More new followers from my link than you did from being featured on Tumblr Tuesday. I am the tastemaker, the zeitgeister, the — boy, this is a really empty room.
