Episode five in a comic for just about nobody
This is part of a series comic that I did a few strips of, many years ago. I considered doing these comics in English, or Japanese, or both, and this was one of the ones I experimented with in Japanese. If you don't read Japanese, below the comic I explain what's up.
The deal is that there's a famous dog statue in Shibuya called Hachiko where everyone meets. Gordon is trying to get there and thinks he's nearby, so he is just trying to ask these convenience ("conbini" in Japanese) store clerks where it is. It's so ridiculously famous, that he can't believe they don't know it, and gets so worked up he starts acting out the concept of "dog" to try to get through to them. The catch is that he's in completely the wrong part of town. Things are funny when explained, right?
Gord is a friend who I used to play ball hockey with, and something about his willingness to do whatever it takes to communicate struck me as really funny. I tend to go the opposite way and get mad at people for not understanding me, no matter how poorly I'm failing at expressing myself.
