Kid's Drawing

Comic - Kid

Author Commentary

Some people hate the "this totally looks like this other thing" strips, but in this case I hope it's enough of an about face to come as a surprise.  And, of course, that the things in question look enough like the other things in question that it works comedy-wise.

Running late on absolutely everything right now, so keeping this brief.  Thanks as always for giving a crap about this strip, see you next week!

Extraneous "to" before "protecting." This is funny! Nice job Mom, overreact and crush the kid's confidence in his art, small price for an anti-war lesson!

The 'to' is fine. Not required but not excess.

hrm. Yeah okay.

This is fantastic for more than a few reasons.. it's good to imagine that kind of mom feeling dumb for being so unnecessarily critical

Okay, this one just took TWO left turns when I wasn't expecting them.

I with wrybred, either the 'to' is extra, or the 'ing' on 'protecting' is extra, if either were removed it would be correct. I have a slight preference for 'to protect' over 'protecting' in this instance because it places a slightly greater emphasis on the /intentions/ of the men rather than on the results.

More to the point, I like Jimmy's response.

And yes, I gave up water colors for colored pencils at about age 4 when I realized what it meant that no one knew what I'd painted unless I told them.

The sombreros seem to be winning.

"..gave their lives to protecting.." is fine by me. It just changes the implied meaning of "gave" from "sacrificed" (they died for their country) to "dedicated" (they've dedicated their lives to the service of their country knowing it might get them killed; it just hasn't so far).

Was this in your disk of clipart, or did you draw it?

I put it to you that you drew it.
