The truth about the Jamaican Honey Bee Squirrel

Hi readers,

I hope you enjoy the new episode. As of late, I've gotten a lot of
questions about the JBS, and I hope I can answer some below.

Is there really such a thing as the Jamaican Honey Bee Squirrel?

Yes, he does exist. Descended from a great white choc-o-dile, he
mates by entering the hatchery with a stolen keycard. He is
supposedly able to blind his enemies by wish alone. His belly is made
of grass. A notorious lazybones, he watches tv but does not know it
is not real.

Can I order one?

No, I'm afraid they're protected by my insecure love.

Can I find one in the wild?

Chances are slim. In 1986, a JBS crashed his corvette into a
supermarket in northern California. Subsequently, he was recovered
from the curb weeping in to his pack of cigarettes, but soon slipped
the bread ties EMS jury-rigged as crude restraints, and made his way
to a rope of gauze, ultimately escaping on the back of a pigeon.

What is the JBS's sexual orientation?

The JBSs host communal "love-ins" or "hippie-style" inversion
throw-back jamfests, in which it's been rumored, anything goes.

How does the JBS taste?

They taste delicious.

Just like last year, we're the first in The Webcomic Examiner's list of The Best Webcomics of 2005!

Coincidentally, I just drew a cover for them!

Man, I'm sleepy!
