My newest cartoon is a double portrait of Squinteye the Sailor and Captain Klunk the aficionado of horrible-tasting cereals made from klunkberries. No… there are no copyright violations here… just satire.
Besides being a cereal aficionado, Captain Klunk is a pirate hunter, at least in his own mind. Which is ironic since both he and Squinteye, noted pirate hater, live in Fantastica’s Pirates’ Nest.
Captain Klunk claims to live on Klunkberry Island. But he doesn’t. The HMS Sloppy Puppy, his ship, is made of klunkberry cereal nuggets, so it gets soggy and sinks. He makes up for his lack of ship-ness by being the master of the Science of Boomology. He gets anyone to their desired destination by loading them into a cannon and shooting them there. You can sometimes live long enough to try a second trip.
So, that is a brief description of who Captain Klunk really is. (Oh, yeah, the “C” on the Captain’s cap does not stand for “Captain”. He is just a Chicago Cubs fan… poor, misguided soul!)
