Signs you need to find a new driving school

2 2 Comments

Was leaving my condo on Friday when I snapped this gem of a photo. Note that this is the exact same handicapped spot where I found a police car and city official in the summer. While not as great as the cop car, I think finding a Driving School Instructor parked in a handicap spot is likely a good sign that your son or daughter is perhaps not getting the best possible road education.

Apologies for the shakey and grainy photo, I was trying to be a covert ninja and Kurzweil kept trying to get my attention by bumping my arm with his nose.

Does this reflect poorly on my business?

Do you remember when you were a kid, going out trick-or-treating, how sometimes schools would give you a Unicef box to collect money for starving children while you filled your sacks with candy? Jeff’s surprised there isn’t a larger element of philanthropy when it comes to Halloween, given the whole “giving free candy to children,” thing.

Although totally unrelated to Unicef or giving candy to kids, the Cripz team have a little request for this halloween. As you likely know, if you are a follower of Cripz, a few weeks ago Facebook “accidentally” deleted our fanpage for “offensive content.” While we did get our page back, we’re still missing quite a few of our original fans. So for this Halloween, if you love Cripz and think we’re doing good work here educating people about disability, please take a few minutes this afternoon to introduce 5 of your friends to Cripz and invite them to become fans of the Cripz fanpage. Our goal is to hit 500 fans by next Wednesday, but we can’t do it without your help, so please take a few seconds to tell your friends about Cripz and invite them to become fans of the comic.

Thanks so much and we hope you enjoy this special holiday episode of Cripz!

The Lazy Mexican

The Lazy Mexican

We think it’s important to point out that Jeff hasn’t been out for Halloween since he was about 6 or 7 years old: not because he’s against it or obligated to sit it out for some weird religious reasons, but rather because he has a nasty habit of getting sick toward the end of October. We’re hoping to end the 20-year-long Halloween drought this year though, heading to a staff Halloween party in costume. Jeff is either going as Stephen Hawking (or his lesser known stripper half-brother Stephen Cawking) or as the sleepy Mexican himself, Che Guevara.  Knock on wood so he doesn’t get sick!

Oh, and Clara was inspired by some girl on the bus to consider going out for Halloween as a piece of French toast.  The question is, how do you make French toast slutty?

Anyway, today Kate is wearing clothes done by the fabulously talented DIY-er at Nice and Shiny.  The dripping necklace, the spiky leggings, and variations on the epaulet dress can be found at her shop, Modernity.  The comic book sound effect wedge shoes (which you can barely see here) aren’t on the shop, but you could probably make your own!

Cheers,
– Jeff & Clara

Things "The Game" Can't Teach You

We were going to write a great bloggy blog about all the best things in the world, but instead Facebook decided to delete our fanpage, threaten to ban Jeff’s account and basically ruin everything.

So, here’s the weekly comic, hope you enjoy it, and apparently Mark Zuckerberg wants to steal our idea…

Interrobang Cover: High School Election

2 Comments

We interrupt our regular scheduled programming for a very, very special announcement. Last week, Clara and Jeff were interviewed by an intrepid young reporter from the Interrobang and, drum roll please, we were asked to create a Cripz-themed cover for next week’s edition of Fanshawe College student newspaper. We were told next week’s edition, while also including our interview about Cripz, is focused mostly on the upcoming mayoral candidates in the upcoming election and were asked to try and make the cover about municipal politics in some way. This is what happens when Clara and Jeff talk about municipal politics for a few hours on the weekend.

As it turns out, there was a bit of a miscommunication and after producing a full strip, we were told they actually only wanted the last frame. But for being such loyal viewers, we present the full election-themed comic that was supposed to be the cover of Interrobang.
