What, what, what am I doing?
Guys. I cannot believe I'm starting another project. Seriously. I disgust myself. Wow. My inbox is frightening to say the least and I have, what? Like 10 billion other projects that need finishing rotting in my hard drive and I start THIS? I'm sorry, okay? I'm sorry. I have commitment issues. My ADD doesn't help either. I try to be responsible. Really I do. My responsible voice is like, "Dude. Don't do this man. Don't start this. You'll obsess over it for a month and then you'll never look at it again. GET A GRIP, MAN." But then there is that other voice that's all like, "DUDE, DO WHAT YOU FEEL. SO WHAT IF YOU NEVER FINISH ANYTHING? NO BIGGIE! THIS IS JUST FOR PRACTICE. YEAH, PRACTICE. YOU NEED PRACTICE SO WHEN YOU GET AROUND TO DOING ALL THAT OTHER STUFF YOU'LL BE GOOD AT IT. YOU CAN'T BE TAMED."
Aaaaaaand.... That's usually the voice I listen to.
On the subject of the actual comic:
It's a comic basically highlighting how much history we Americans share with the French. I always found it funny how Americans and the French (stereotypically speaking) have so much rivalry and (stereotypically speaking) hate each other so much when in all actuality we've had one of the most amenable relationships in our nation's history with the French. Seriously. Did you know that as an independent country, America has never gone to war against France? Which is saying ALOT seeing how much we've interacted with them during the U.S.'s existence. Sure, we've come close but there has never been an official war between France or the U.S. And yet we (stereotypically speaking) go bad-mouthing each other all the time. It's actually a very interesting phenomenon which I hope to explore deeper with this comic... But overall the comic is just for fun. No intention of hurting anyone's feelings. This should not be taken seriously or taken as an accurate portrayal of French/American relations. Content contained in this comic concerning geography/the French language/historical facts (<==even though I did take time to double check this) have the very real possibility of being wrong. You should not study this for your history class and hope to get an A..... It's just all in good fun.
I apologize in advance for any mistakes and my slaughtering of the French language.
