If you didn’t notice from the barren wasteland that is society at the moment, Grand Theft Auto 5 came out today. I’m pretty sure the release of a new GTA game is similar in nature to national holidays or viral epidemics. Banks and businesses are closed, people are calling in sick, and parents are blaming the game for their kid’s behavior instead of their poor parenting.
Okay, that last part probably doesn’t happen in epidemics, but you get what I’m saying.
I’ve been wanting to do a gay/Navy joke for a while, and this strip is actually a kind of Frankenstein combo of another joke that I wrote a long time ago that I never did. I killed two birds with one stone here, however, including GTA V on it’s release date. I’m proud of that. I am.
Really, this strip is about jokes. It’s a joke about jokes. I know, we’re going deep here, this is the Inception of comic strips. I’m sure Corpsmen and everyone else that’s been in the Navy have heard the gay jokes, and I’m guessing they are due largely in part to an unfortunate song by The Village People back in the 80’s.
It might also be because everyone in the Navy actually is a homosexual… Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
I’m joking of course, there’s plenty of straight guys in the Navy, I even met one once.
