It's kind of hard to accidentally say Rome when you mean to say home.

But it was mildly amusing.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Next week's will be even worse.

If anyone is interested, there is another of these up.

I think I'm getting a feel for the style of how I want to run these.  However, I obviously need to work a little on presentation--particularly the text box.  I think the one on last week's was better.  Probably ought to spice it up with a border and a shadow or something like that.

This latest one about F. Baggins definitely had a Farside feel.  Very nice.

I don't get it. What nickname?

Wait...  I see a possible connection between frodo and afro, but...Frodo wasn't a nickname.  Was it?

You're thinking too hard on this one.  But I'll explain it--why not?  Frodo wasn't a nickname, but what if it was?  What if his real name had been Frindo, but because of that huge afro--or "fro," all his friends started calling him "Fro"do?

In fact, since the word hairdo is often shortened to do, it might be said that he had a "fro do."

What I don't get is why, if "Frindo" graduated in Home Economics, he made his buddy Sam do all the cooking. I mean, honestly!
