Hula Whoop

July 12, 2004

When this comic strip first appeared in 2004, I received a snippy email that read, “I don’t know what that woman is doing, but it certainly isn’t the hula!” That’s one of the perks of being a cartoonist: aggravating such people. I will go so far as to admit the essence of the hula dance is fluid motion, but come on! It’s a static, four-panel comic strip! Besides, does anyone see the word “hula” anywhere in the strip? OK, I admit; it’s been 18 years. Sometimes they aggravate me.
