My dad has hundreds of stories, each of them funnier than the last. I’m sure I haven’t even heard half of them yet. In honor of Father’s Day this week, here’s one of our favorite childhood tales of Dad’s… the time he went skinny-dipping in the town’s water supply. Hope you enjoy it! Happy Father’s Day, Dad!

Ha ha, expertly done!
LOL! Hilarious, I loved this, the lighting and shading were especially awesome :)
Thanks! I wanted it to be perfect!
Fantastic! Wonderful work.
Thank you, I’m glad you liked it!
Haha, that’s great! I love the “censored” swear words.
LOL; love it! Great work!!
So funny! Dad stories are the best. Your pictures are amazing
Yes, they are! Thanks :)
Well I just spewed my pop out my nose. This is hilarious! Your censoring is so expertly done, on the dialog and on the characters. Keep up the good work! P.S. Your dad got into the same kind of mischief as mine. Gotta love ’em!
Haha! Thanks :)
Loved this !
Thank you, Sweet Mother :)
Oh, this is fantastic!
Hee, I laughed really hard at “whom I had a difficult time picturing without a beard and with hair, respectively.”
:) Seriously, I can’t imagine it. Whenever I try to picture them as little boys, I just see strangely bearded and bald little boys.
LOL! This is Hilarious! I love it!!!!
:D So glad you liked it!
Too funny! As usual, amazing artwork :)
This one is so great! The layers and the censoring. Total approval! I wonder why my dad hasn’t told me any stories like this…
Maybe he didn’t want to encourage you? :)
You just get better and better! I love the bleep clouds!
Thanks! They made me laugh, so I’m glad other people found them funny, too!
I love the creative conversion of swear words!
Thanks :) I got in trouble just for saying “Damn” in a comment on someone else’s blog, so I knew I had to tread carefully here… ;)
woah. thats not even a swear. i’m genuinely shocked.
I’m fairly sure they were just joshing around, but they sure let me know how pure my image was on here! haha
Oh My Golly! I love your dad’s childhood misadventure that led to you doing this post. Absolutely the best entertainment of the day!
Thanks :) I love Dad’s stories. Hopefully, this will become an annual tradition!
I can’t wait. You should get some brilliant creative artist award. Brilliant, I say.
hope he didn’t get a cold
I cannot wait to read your posts when I see them in my in-box! I am running out of synonyms for hilarious!
:) That’s really nice of you to say!
LOL!!!!! that is hilarious!!!!! I needed a laugh today! Thank you for this post :)
I love the details! I had to read this again this morning. I love the fact that your dad still has the same eyebrows! This is too funny!
great as always :)
HaHa! You really got your dad’s posture right when he is climbing over the fence! (When he is trying to get in / not out, of course.)
Thanks, it was tricky!
oh sugar and false friends indeed! adorable!
You are an awesome talent, Nicole. Loved the swear words covered up, the flashlight “light,” the fence-climbing scene. Fantastic story! Your dad is gonna love it.
Thanks! He did, so I’m happy! :)
LMBO You’re so talented, and awesomely funny:-) Poor Dad.
Haha! I’d love to the police report for that date.
Best story ever!
Definitely a favorite.
Did Dad have to approve that story? It was zoo good. But who were the two other characters skinny dipping with him?
His old mischief-making pals :)
This is so funny! This is the only sort of censorship I thoroughly enjoy!
:D Thanks, Miranda!
Your dad still isn’t stuck there I hope. This was truly amazing story, and thank you for the use of censor bars for your more delicate readers such as myself.
They had to cut the bars to get him out!
I had a feeling it was going to go something like that!
Hahaha.. yeah, he was doomed from the start.
Great story. Censor bars AND bleeped words? That’s the best use of censorship in a blog post I’ve ever seen on a non-Communist site.
Happy Father’s Day to the great men in your life!
Hahaha! Thanks, Angie! Hope you have a fun weekend, too!
I would marry your blog.
This made me AND my dad laugh :) Thanks!
That is awesome. False friends, indeed.
:D Thanks, Kathy!
Oh my goodness this is unbelievably amazing!! Some people really just have pure, natural talent. Ugh im so jealous!
It took me a pretty long time to stumble into this medium. You’ll find yours! :)
Great story. Your attention to detail just gets better and better. Every time I think, “wow, this work is amazing. It can’t get any better”…it does.
Thanks, Michelle! I try :)
OMG those pink revisions in historical quotes are AWESOME!
Hahaha, thanks Drew! :)
I LOVE THE CENSORED WORDS! I loved the torch! I loved how you pasted the tiny movement effects on the water, its all amazing ! Your comic strips are my favorite!
Aww, thank you!
Your absolute best! How did you do the flashlight light?
Thanks! I did it with the GIMP dodge tool :)
Oh I like this a lot. Your Dad sounds fabulous
Thanks :) He’s a pretty great dad!
Hilarious :) :)
:) Thank you!
Why those mother”False Friends”! Who needs enemies? AWESOME illustration and I hope my crazy stories inspire my kids to be creative…or at least pass on the myth! ~Regards, Dan
I’m sure they will! Some stories just HAVE to be passed down.
There was pond scum in the reservoir! You really outdo yourself sister.
This was sooo hilarious! I don’t know how else to describe it!
:) Thanks for reading!
False friends! love it
Thank you! :)
What a great story, now illustrated, to honor your father! Outstanding!!
Thanks! I was hesitant to do it at first because his stories are SO MUCH better than my stories, haha :)
Reblogged this on apensiveonmyown.
Ha! Your censorship in this was just…perfect. I hope we get to hear (see) more of his stories! :)
I’m hoping to make it an annual tradition. There are so many stories to be told!
HAHAHA! LAUGH-ly! ;-)
Thanks Somesh! Glad I could make you laugh!
Thank you :)
Absolutely hilarious! Thank you. I needed a good laugh.
Glad I could help! :)
Oh, no! I sense trouble!
Hahah! I wonder what it would take to dig up the police report from that day.
