Introducing Mimi and Eunice

Nina Paley strikes again! Nobody can do it like Nina. (In the left-hand column, you'll find several links to Paley-related sites, including her brilliant animated feature, Sita Sings the Blues.) Here is a new comic strip, annotated with a wonderfully concise crash course on creative commons-copyright issues and how it all works (more about that to the left, too).Who are Mimi and Eunice? Paley writes, "As far as I can tell, Mimi & Eunice are two middle-aged children/baby psychos/heterosexual lesbians. That’s all I can surmise so far." Here are a couple of  my favorite strips. I hope there will be more than the few at the link, below.

Remind you of anybody you've seen steal an election in 2000 and 2004? Or probably some personal friends and family? But what really made that one work for me (without which it'd be just another funny one-liner) is the expression on the face of the one wearing the halo. LOL! And this next one reminds me rather too closely of an incident in my life earlier this week. I'm already laughing about it...
