REFLECTIONS ON THE ABSURDITY OF POPSICLE STICK HUMOR and BOVINE HARASSMENT
Cowstick is a statement about the stupidity and simplicity of the little jokes sometimes found on popsicle sticks. I'm not sure which brand(s) have these jokes...apparently I'm not the best target for product branding. I should eat more popsicles.
The concept came spontaneously late one night while we laughed in a bed on the floor. After eating several joke popsicles, one begins to notice a tingling sensation in the tip of the tongue. One also notices that the stick-jokes all have the same basic form -- A question usually about an animal, and an answer that creates a play-on-words. Something punny.
I quickly decided that I could write the same low-quality jokes as found on theses popsicle sticks. Many many solutions (most concerning cows) followed rapidly. This piece is based on that experience.
Artistic credit to stacy for helping flesh out some of the most ridiculous of the jokes. She doesn't know she's an artist. Mooo.
