Longtime riders of Washington DC's Metro system will recognize that Metro announcements rarely communicate this much specific information. Usually, the drivers come on and just tell us that they've been instructed to hold or that there's a train stopped ahead of us. So we're left to ponder for ourselves just why the fuck we've paid our hard earned dollars to be stuck in a tunnel.

Seriously, Metro would do itself a great service if they just told us what the fuck was going on. Transparency might engender some measure of sympathy. For instance, if we knew that the train ahead of us was stopped because someone puked their guts out, we would feel sorry for that poor passenger and maybe not direct our anger at the ineptness of the entire Metro system and fire off angry twitter messages declaring the system horribly fucked.

Ugh!

Mini Contest!

So another mini contest for this strip. There are fourteen passengers besides Kane who are riding this train. If you can identify all fourteen, I'll send you a sketch of your favorite one of the fourteen. Send your answers to my email addy with the subject "Stuck Mini Contest." First correct answer wins!
PANEL 1
METRO ANNOUNCEMENT: Attention customers...

PANEL 2
METRO ANNOUNCEMENT: I have been instructed to hold here for a few minutes while a sick passenger is escorted off of the train ahead of us. Thank you for your continued patience.
KANE: We wait any longer I'm gonna be sick!

Magma Studio is a fun little web app. If you've got a browser, you've got a drawing app! Mostly. If you're using MacOS Safari, you get no tablet support. If you're using iOS Safari, you do get tablet support but no paste function. Both make me chuckle a bit. But overall, it's fun to play with. Sure, it could use some more functions in there, but I think it's a solid base app to build on. And you have draw with 30 friends at the same time! Big time art jam! Reminds me of the old oekaki days in the 90s.

So check it out. This is not sponsored, but I had fun with it and I think you will, too!
