  3. Hahaha! Hilarious comic and outstanding illustration. I was totally obsessed by spontaneous combustion until I foolishly, some years back, watched a documentary that removed the mystery. Alas!

    1. Thanks Cinders :)

      What you trying to say...this documentary can't be true...Spontaneous Human Combustion is real...I've seen the pictures!!

  4. Ha. good one. And a legitimate cartoon gag in the 3rd person. By the looks of her face it may have been the nagging.. Nice grandpa slippers that somehow survived the implosion. ha ha.

    I've got a clown spontaneous combustion gag in the 'needs work' pile, it's been there quite awhile, -someday I'll figure it out. You inspire me.

    3. Ask if you can make her some tea. Works every time.

    4. hey friends, thanks for your advice,
      Last night I thought I felt a little burning smell and just in case I went to bed with a fire extinguisher, tonight I will try, to leave it on the floor beside the bed, because it is a bit annoying to sleep with it under my pillow!!

    5. Roberto, spontaneous combustion is a beautiful, natural occurrence. Sleeping with a fire extinguisher under your pillow is not natural, it's kinda weird. And the stiff neck in the morning. yikes.

    6. Is a stiff neck worse than a spontaneously combusted neck?

  6. Hahaha...excellent illustration Rod. And as I can see, it also inspires hilarious comments, roberto's for one.
