Tread Dread


I hope that you are enjoying some of these. A lot of clunkers, to be sure, but a few that might last past the warranty.

What I find funny and what you find funny may perhaps, in a happy accident, intersect. We can, stifling giggles, exchange insurance information, and move on with our lives.

As I have previously stated, I am assembling enough work to then submit to the syndicated Cartoon Gods (like us only they eat better), and gain some wider exposure. I will winnow the wheat from the chaff (I believe that is how it goes. I’m no farmer), and submit the . . . wheat? The chaff will reside here for all to peruse until the sun becomes a Red Giant, billions of years hence.

I enjoy the pursuit of funny, and am constantly course-correcting so as not to alienate my audience . . . (sound of crickets) Whoops, looks like I already did! Thanks to those of you, who have stuck by me since the beginning, you know who the both of you are. (Boom! Tish!) Your likes and comments are the fuel (in addition to an Americano) that keep me going!


I am a Sansei, with two teens, and a hamster. This blog is a repository for ideas and observations, expressed in cartoon form, by and large. A bit of a journal too. Feel free to follow me on INSTAGRAM @ WILTOONS, (the Twitter for people who like to go out) where I post a journal comic. Thanks for dropping by!

  1. I would be one of them. It is just no fun at all buying tires. I try to think of my family’s safety, which helps. (a little haha)

  2. I’m neither Boom nor Tish, but am definitely a big fan of yours! Best of luck with the syndication! If you need a character reference, feel free to list me on your application.

    Also, I like both wheat and chaff, so I’m good either way.

    Regarding the tires … I have had that exact same conversation at the tire store. I always buy the cheapest, crappiest on-sale tires they have. They always look at me and shake their heads sadly and ask me to pay for them in advance (no financing). But at least I leave with my pride (and a better than 50/50 chance of being in a tire-related accident).

    Great stuff! Keep ’em coming!

  3. Great comment Biff. Though syndication is a long shot, it is a fun pursuit. I will continue to drop content here yea or nay.

    Careful in slick conditions with those crappy-ass tires.
