I don't know if it's still true, but back in the day we didn't have vendors hanging outside of the MTC. But there were often attractive young ladies who made the sidewalk in front of the MTC a prime part of their jogging route. Just sayin'.
Upon rare occasion, fellow LDS Cartoonist Arie Van De Graaff and I come up with similar ideas — albeit with some variance in our approach. Such is the case with this one. The gag is based on a similar theme, but our interpretation is much, much different.
I post this with some trepidation. I've noticed that several of my cartoons this year have become obsolete because of changes in church operations. As I was working on this, the notice came out about the changes in Primary and Young Men/Young Women. Not that there's an official height requirement for missionaries — but you never know!
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the New Era and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
