Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 10 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer

More than a few of us end our lives sitting behind the wheel of a car...

The Hummer #10
By Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - We are automotive turtles. In our cars we are self-contained.

There's hardly a human function that can't be performed in an automobile--in the back seat if not the front.

We can eat, sleep, argue, gossip, listen to books, even give birth to our children.

And more than a few of us end our lives sitting behind the wheel of a car.

It's no wonder that we care so passionately about the four-wheeled containers we insert ourselves into and maintain with a significant portion of our incomes.

Glen has written extensively on the issues of technology and education for the National Education Association and other Leonardo (Glen L. Bledsoe) publications.

Amen to that--although Bromo Seltzer was the adult panacea of choice when I was a kid. But I don't believe that our trio is going to let a little upchuck abort their meeting with destiny. Drive on!

Alka Selzer!, Alka Selzer!,with a 12 oz. can of V-8 juice and a Taco Time bean burrito, that guy'll be back in the saddle in no time., all the way to Whitefish,Montana! It does say some basic logic about riding a Harley though, simply for the convenience of not having to pull over during times of distress. It'll be a tough trip till they properly clean the carpet and hang a couple of thos felt pine trees to the ashtray handle. I've actually experienced this scenario. I hope they find a dealership thogh Micheal Moore's film on capitalism indicates a complete G.M. outsourcing to Shanghai, I fervently pray he's exxagerating!
