This was wonderfully topical when I wrote it on November 25th

Posted on December 2nd, 2010

Jamie really was freaked out about going, and that was before the gang uprising. His big fear then was kidnapping. Not unjustifiably either, since Brazil is #5 in the world for people-snatching beating out Columbia and Afghanistan! with a person kidnapped every two days in Sao Paulo, alone. Never underestimate the ruthlessness of a people willing to rip out their own crotch hair by the fistful.

Shooting on the beach of a luxury resort quickly put his fears to rest, whereas mine were realized: jet lag, crack-of-dawn call times and caipirinhas with the client until 3 a.m. left him physically unable to create the comic for several days running. I was so grateful to finally receive a JPEG that it would have been ungentlemanly to point out that the body count had risen from 23 to at least 50 in the six days it took him to create it. Or the fact that I'd specifically asked him to draw Carmen Miranda's signature FRUIT hat instead of what appears to be the floral centrepiece of the hotel's buffet.

Sigh... I really do miss that surly bastard.

I'm also sorry to report that the micro bikini mobsters in the last panel are a figment of my imagination. Real Brazilian slum gangs are distinctly less sexy.

Yes, he wet himself in fear. Like you wouldn't if the military came after you.

If you found that disappointing, you'll be delighted to know that female university students in London rioted over tuition hikes last week, giving me a legitimate reason to Google images for "naughty schoolgirls with sexy British accents gone wild."

Sexy panda girl will fuck your shit up.

"Ironically, he squealed like a pig when I beat him to death with his own helmet."

You go, girls.
