Bad Inking Day

The "write a caption" contest is still going on (see previous entry), but I thought I'd share a gag I doodled after I had a bad inking day recently. It was one of those days where every line I set down was shaky and no amount of warming up would get rid of it. I don't usually get like that, and most often I just work through it and it goes away, but this time it stayed with me the whole day! It was especially frustrating because the day before, I felt like I was on a real roll and every line came off my brush with a "zing!"

Anyway, I drew this up after I finished up the day's work, to try and cheer myself up. And what do you know -- in the course of drawing and lettering it, my shaky line went away!
