An Unexpected Marketing Opportunity

March 26, 2018

I did a Catholic comic strip called Saintly Anthony back in the 90’s.

And since this is Holy Week, and yesterday was Palm Sunday

      My dear Truly!! It’s a good thing my Easter basket hasn’t been delivered yet– you make me blush so, the heat would melt all the chocolate eggs!! (and I hate to think what it would do to the marshmallow peeps!!) Thanks for your kind words. I’m also blushing because I haven’t visited your blog lately. I’m slowly catching up on overdue blog visits, however, so I shall be over soon. In the meantime, keep smilin’ and being your fine self, and I wish you a very Happy Easter!! 🐰🐤😊

      That is so true, my dear Linda!! In fact, I’m going to prove it right now. I’m putting on my barker hat, I’m getting up on my soap box, I’m putting a megaphone to my waxy lips, and I’m shouting: “Hearye, hearye, all my faithful blog visitors!! Get over and visit Linda Vernon’s blog!! There ye shall find humor and wit and mirth in copious quantities!! You will laugh, you will chortle, you will giggle and guffaw!! What are you waiting for?? Call a digital taxi now!!!!” 🎩📣😀😂😃😄😊😆🏆 🚕🚕🚕🚕🚕🚕💨

      Hey– I think it worked!! Great to see you, Linda– Happy Easter!! 🐰🐤😊

      What I like to do in church on Palm Sunday is this: I put on a turban, add a fake beard and Coke-bottle glasses, then I walk up and down the aisle asking people: “Would you like me to read your palm?”

      That’s when the ushers come and throw me out… 😖🌴 <= face-palm

      Happy Easter, my dear Lily!! 🐰🐤😊

    oh my funny man,
    I’ve become such a bad Catholic-if I walk into a church today I believe fires would follow-so perhaps palms made of windshield washers with cleaning solution nearby is the answer
    you are so very talented my friend
    I’m convinced your skeletal structure is made up of funny bones glued together;)

      Funny Man, him is thinking: my wife and I were at the Holy Thursday service last night: the priest washing feet to help us remember it ain’t about us, it’s about helping others. And since I know you’ve been doing same for a long time, you’re obviously a good Catholic. If sinners burst into flame upon entering a church, I’d be Mr. Char-Broiled. So would everyone else. So stop by and leave your asbestos body stocking at the door… 💦🔥😇

      Right. Moving right along… your visits are always exciting, my dear AM, you rattle my funny bones!– Happy Easter!! 🌷🐰🐤🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫😋🚑💨
