This is an idea I’ve been kicking around in my head since the late 1980s. It was at that time that American manufacturing began moving to China at frightening rate. This was the infamous “giant sucking sound” that a certain presidential candidate warned us about, though he was largely considered to be a little Wack-a-doodle at the time.
Of course, I had no means to create a cartoon strip back then, so I considered making it a short story. However, my procrastination lasted nearly 30 years.
And my best-in-class procrastination is one thing I never have to worry about being out-sourced or off-shored.
