"It's called fudge packing." LOL!This is epic. I love it!
Thanks Kevin! I am glad you love it, because it took like ten hours to draw...and it needs love. (?)
Can't wait for the rest!
Thanks JRose! If I had your talent, I could be tearing through it...If I had money, I would pay you to draw for me.Do you accept old nintendo games as valid currency?
No sorry, only monkey butlers and bacon are valid non-monetary currency.
Ha ha ha! I laughed so hard, I may have broken a rib!Do you know how hard it is to laugh with a broken rib?
Yay! I am glad I broke your rib Lily-though I am amazed you have any energy to do anything after making yourself do the A to Z thing.You crazy.
So it wasn't eXactly a five star hotel ...
Nope, but to be fair, he opened up his home to some nephew he didn't even know, driving five hours to pick him up from the airport, and all that nephew did was sit around and get wasted....
Love the Charlie Brown shirt. Epic!
Thank you! That shirt was probably the easiest thing to draw.
The saga is continue!Yay!
Saga is such an inappropriate descriptor for this endeavor. You should say, "the wee story wees on" or something way funnier than what I just wrote
Hee hee heeeee!!! Love it!!
Thank you Cupcake Killer
If you are five hours from the airport I'm worried you won't be near Tokyo Bay when Godzilla emerges.
I wasn't even on the same island as the tokyo bay, I was on Hokkaido, so not only did I miss Godzilla but also the entirety of anything that anyone would think of when they think of Japan except Japanese people
This sounds like one crazy trip to Japan! (or one crazy trip while in Japan...)
I am glad you like it! You comment with such loyalty it is flattering
Now I'm on pins and needles. You must tell us how you handled 5 hrs in a car with a virtual stranger. Uncomfortable! I had an Uncle like this. Complete boozehound but generous with the cash. Of course mine lived in the Az. desert, wore WAY too much turquoise jewelry and packed a pistol everywhere he went. Because of his perputual sunstroke (the man loved his tan), his love for Native American gewgaws and his obsession for Survivalism, he was in my top 10 for craziest relatives.I'm scared for you. Can't wait for the next installment!
Let me say, those five hours were long, awkward, and devoid of pleasantriesYOUR uncle sounds awesome...I especially love that he favored turquoise jewelry
I think me and your uncle would get on famously.
Cool! You would have fared better than me then, or then me than-not sure on the usage there
Bugger.I did not read part 1 at first, because I saw part 1 in the title so I thought I'd cheat and wait until it was finished and read it all in one go.So now I am left hanging in suspense.But so far I love it. And when it is finished I am going to show it to Son who is intending to visit Japan. I think he has a similar idea to you about the place and is expecting to see ninjas and game characters roaming the streets.
Thanks cowgirl! That is so funny about your son's Japan expectations. I can relate...If you had waited until I was finished with it, you would not be reading gweenbrick for a long time, and that would make me sad, most loyal of long-time readers as you are
Oh, man, keep 'em coming! :D-Barb the French Bean
Thank you Barb the French Bean, I am glad you liked it
Every family has an uncle joe. I refer to him as "Uncle Fuck You!" Wish MY Uncle Fuck You was living in Japan...
Your uncle sounds like he might be a little difficult
Do you mean Uncle Fukyu? I think it's pronounced "foo-Q".
Great story, great pictures, keep going please :)My favourite pic is the 'Whoa' one at the cliff top.I hope you didn't get a job in a fudge factory to pay for your keep...
Thanks Julie! Nope, I did not have any f-oh....gross
I wish Sonic the Hedgehog would manifest out of the clouds to tell ME stuff... You must be truly special.
Its kind of a mixed blessing; his mood turns on a dime and sometimes his advice is nonsensical
Oh my blob I love this. You're freakin hilarious. Just snagged a peek from a link on Steam Me Up, Kid's blogroll and I immediately hit follow. You're a freaking riot!
Thanks for clicking over aramanthe-that link on Steamme has been very kind to me. Hope you continue to read here!
Well, Charlie Brown, I think next time you go to Japan, I am going with you. I have always wanted to go for the same reason most people want to go. Anime! Manga!
Only if I can use your suitcases like pack mules to fill with robot figures and weird videogames
I've not had Internet for a bit so am a little late - but love this post... love your eccentric uncle... but one question - is he real? Or is this all fiction? Hope it's true lol
Yes he is real-so far the only thing I have changed is exaggerated facial expressions for comedic effect, played up my child-like enthusiasm, and made Sonic talk to me from the clouds. He actually appeared in my bellybutton. No he didn't. I also took out some swears that were actually said because I felt they took away from my attempts to make things funnyI'll let you know if I go all out and REALLY start making things up
Lol... ok, well I'm all set then for part III!
Uncle Joe sounds like a hoot and a half! Can't wait for the next installment!
