Sunday Funnies

one more question, Chaucer - what is that thing on your head?
 Ahh, Chaucer. Kind of the "always a bridesmaid" of word origins. For the most part, Shakespeare is actually credited with origination of word usage, while Chaucer keeps getting couched in careful language like "first written usage."

This past Friday's word, "magic," I chose purely for Chaucer. I'm guessing I've got characterization all wrong again: if he's anything like his writings, Chaucer's probably a lot more like your randy old uncle who can't keep from telling the dirty jokes at the family reunion. Art-wise, please pardon my erratic linework; I'm getting used to the brush pen.
