Joel Priddy said...

Thanks, April! More to come, too!

How I envy you!

A really reading Sweetie 'n Me, it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling only otherwise get when I read Calvin and Hobbes.

Wish I could find the strips more easily though.

Joel Priddy said...


Thanks! Also, you live in California and work in video games. The world envies you.


High praise! If you would like to see Sweetie 'n Me strips on a more regular basis, it's easy: just find a bunch of money, put it in the back of a truck, and drive it over to my house! So simple!

Actually, there's another Sweetie 'n Me in the pipes: a whopping 13 page extravaganza! And I'm nearing enough strips to where I can think about putting out a collection of them.

I wouldn't call in an exterminator.
Creepy crawlies need sustenance!

As always, an entertainingly genius read Mr. Priddy. Keep 'em coming.

"And I'm nearing enough strips to where I can think about putting out a collection of them."

This news pleases me.

When I was working on this strip, I posed this scenario to several people, and pretty much everybody said they'd call the exterminator, which surprised me. I could definitely get used to them, if it meant I woke up every morning fully groomed.

Well, except for the bugs that clean inside your mouth.


Thanks! I'll try!

Now, tell me that isn't a great band name.

Kayla Cline said...

I have to agree with Marie on that one, bugs that clean you nightly are a vast time saver. I would overlook the creepiness for this.

Steph said...

LOL, as long as I'm asleep while they do the work, I don't care! I supposed you're all busy being a dad and stuff, eh?

....I want some...en masse. That's not's efficient. It'd be creepy if they had 8 legs..but I'd be dead after one night if that were the case.
