Phables, June 12, 2006

I’ve been getting a lot of positive response about today’s Phables.

It’s about all the annoying things that people do on the road. I’ve made it into a game. Now, when you see it happening, instead of getting angry, put an X in the corresponding box.

First one to get five in a straight line (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) gets to yell: PHILLY ROAD BINGO!

Due to popular request, I made a letter-sized PDF for you to download and print. Go play in traffic.

Evil Atom’s origins

Fair warning: If you want to know the whole story to Evil Atom’s origins, along with some information on the origins of Evil Inc and some background information about Evil Atom’s relationship with Catspaw, you’d better subscribe to the newsletter by Tuesday night.

I’m planning on spilling all of that stuff as an exclusive to newsletter subscribers on Wednesday.
