Pop on your porkpies! It's time for another installment of "Mayonnaise Monday!"*
Today we're highlighting a young upstart on the scene by the name of Stephan T. Pastis (aka STP). In his LOL-take above, Stephan takes mayonnaise and weaponizes it ... which is something I've dreamt about since the 7th grade.
Let's flashback to 1980, yes?
Setting: JG's room. He's alone and wearing a cape. It's too small for him but he doesn't seem to mind.
JG: How 'bout I blast you with my mayonnaise magma canon? How does the steel-eggy goodness of my Mayo Saber taste! Perhaps a 'Naissy Bomb dropped on your town square? Look on my works, ye Mayo and despair!
... and Scene!
Now back to 2016.
Stephan's patented brand of painfully hysterical puns and pushing the "good taste envelope"** have lead him to awards nominations out the ying-yang and a client list of more than 800 newspapers. He's also one of the most popular features on GoComics and in quiet times will often reflect he thinks that wearing black clothes helps accentuate his facial hair.
Stephan is also releasing another wonderful collection later this fall. It's called "Stephan's Web of Lies" and it's chock full of Pearls humor and the cover is just a sensational parody of Charlotte's Web. Donna Oatney over at Andrews McMeel Publishing was instrumental in getting it to pop off the page and into our hearts. Thanks, Donna! Thanks STP!
