I feel the need to explain panel #4. For those of you that haven't worked in a library or don't use a system like ours, an NOS occurs when a book requested by a patron or staff cannot be found for one reason or another. NOS stands for Not On Shelf...and we indicate that on a slip and fax it to the appropriate retrieval desk. As funny as some of these songs are, I can't take credit for the 2nd and 4th panel of this cartoon. I tried to do some research as to who thought of these great songs, but from talking to fellow co-workers, it sounds like they're collective ideas that developed over the past few years and can't be pinned down to just one person.
I'm posting this cartoon before heading out for a quick visit to the Southwest.
In the meantime, if you're interested in ordering my cartoon zine online, it's available at Powell's Books and you can get it here.

Sorry it took so long to post a new cartoon, but I've been devoting most of my time to getting a book finished. Instead of taking a lot of blood, sweat, and was more like a lot of carpal tunnel, procrastination, and finger nail biting to get it done.
But the book is finally here and I have a few copies ready to give out. It's got most of the cartoons found on this blog, plus five brand new ones, and a couple of other little extras. The only drawback is that it's kind of thick, and in trying to staple it all together, I realized that it doesn't close all the way! If I get through this first run, I'll try and use thinner paper next time.
Anyway, if you're interested in getting a copy of my self published book, please write me at:
I'll respond as soon as I can and give you the details on where to get it and how much it'll cost. Thanks!
