Who doesn’t love professional wrestling? Well, lots of people I suppose. But lots of people love it too!
I haven’t caught much of it lately, but was a little bit obsessed as a kid. We’d play wrestling at recess and fight over who got to be Ultimate Warrior and who got to be Hulk Hogan. A personal favorite of mine was Randy Savage, mostly because of that weird growly talk he did that must have been damaging his throat.
These days, I mostly just watch the cats wrestle. Olive is a big fan of jumping off the armrest of the couch and landing on Hazel, which is surprisingly similar to a wrestler jumping off the top turnbuckle. It’s also cheaper than Pay-Per-View.
Francesco’s awake and not at all happy. And although he possesses spider-like agility, his punches seem to be ineffective against Vinnie’s fluffy, misshapen body.
This marks the end of another Vinnie and Francesco story, so stop by next Friday for more of the evil rabbit! Will the animals of the yard finally find a way to get rid of him and his evil ways? Perhaps they’ll have to call in for some backup…
So there’s kind of a fun story behind today’s comic; it was originally created as a piece of fan art for the Bloggess and now I’m sharing it with YOU because you’re a nice guy and I like you.
I first heard about the Bloggess through Meghan, and quickly fell in love with the site because it’s all kinds of bananas, and I mean that in the best possible way. Please take a look and see what I mean, unless you’re a small child because I don’t want to be responsible for what you grow up to be after reading it.
So after visiting the site for months and seeing all manner of stuffed mammals and reptiles dressed in full costume, I decided to take a stab at it myself in the form of a comic. I like the idea of bobcats because Christopher Walken was once married to one in an SNL skit, and let’s face it, the sombrero has to be the greatest hat ever created, next to those beanie things with the propeller on top.
So there you have it. Enjoy and please dress your animals responsibly. You know, nice clothes. No sleeveless shirts or anything like that.
