    “This sucks cuz…it isn’t John K’s work and…and…it reminds me too much of Family Guy…and…it doesn’t meet some impossible criteria that only I have in my own head but changes every day…and why didn’t the studios hire me?…or why did they hire me but not give me a fun job?..I hate my life… It’s not fair!…and blah blah blah wah wah whine…whine…my %$#@#!* hurts! ”

    Did anyone notice the pilgrim jumping into the tub is an example from Preston’s animation book?

    The artwork was changed in later editions, but you can see the original example here:

    It’s great to see it in context.
