This is one of those comics that was probably funnier in my mind than it is in actual comic form. It's just that hearing politicians talk about this being no time for a radical experiment in marriage -- meaning of course for queers -- got me wondering what an experiment with marriage would actually look like. Would there be beakers involved? I certainly hope so. Or you know who engaged in radical marriage experimentation? The Curies. I should have just drawn them instead.
Even if this comic didn't come out as well as I might have liked, I am very pleased with Dr. Perky there, and her square glasses.
P.S. Bela was a Rosh Hashana fish -- strictly speaking, as I recall, I got him on erev Rosh Hashana -- so I've had him just about a year. L'shana tova, little fish!
