50: Pretty Shoo-Fly for a White Guy
Jeremy: Ew. I personally have a strong dislike for shoo-fly pie, no matter how wet the bottom is. Here we get to see a lot of Lancaster friends in the background that we have seen in earlier strips in this storyline, as well as a few randomly drawn cartoon denizens that are intended to bear no resemblance to anyone we know in real life. Except for one person. A free green gummi bear goes to the first person who can, by way of comment to this strip, name this person, and point him/her out in the strip.
Shameless plug time: The band Elle is referring to is The French Revolution, my studio project since late 2009 with one of my closest friends, Daniel French. We are about to release our 2nd free full length album (first week of June), but you can still get the debut free full-length here. Although, this comic strip may be the only place TFR will ever “perform”, as it is just a studio project at the time of this posting.
Jeff: I, on the other hand, am a big fan of shoo-fly pie. Prefer mine a bit more on the dry side, but I’m not really all that picky. Honestly, it’s one of those things where I had no idea it was a “local” thing until I noticed that nobody outside of southcentral PA had really ever heard of the stuff. Ran into similar culture shock when I went to a deli in Oregon and noticed that the only bologna they had was this homogeneous pencil-eraser-pink stuff. Guy behind the counter kept trying to give me salami when I was asking for a good Sweet Lebanon…
