Charmy’s Fortune Cookie is Defective in Today’s Comic Strip

Once again, I will reveal more about today’s story and expand the entertainment value of my work for my valued fans. The gang shared their fortunes with each other and Charmy’s fortune ends up being SO lame. Read the blog and hear THE REST OF THE STORY!!!

So, what happens next?

“What does yours say, Flimp?”, asks Frenchy.

“Oopa du du poo”, says Flimp.

“Flimp says he had no idea there was a fortune in there”, says Frenchy. “He that the filling had dried out”.

“Why did you all get cool fortunes?”, asks Charmy.

“Yeah, that is very odd”, reacts Frenchy. “That is one weird fortune. Maybe you should ask for another one.”

“Yeah! I believe I will!”, Charmy agrees. “Hey, Gargles!”

“I believe you are trying to say ‘garson’ “, suggests Weaver.

“Yeah, but ‘gargles’ is more fun to say”, says Charmy.

The waiter walks up and asks, “May I help you, sir?”

“Yes, my fortune cookie is all messed up”, explains Charmy. “I would like another one please”.

“Not a problem, sir”, says the waiter. “As a matter of fact, you can all have new fortune cookies.” The waiter hands them all new cookies.

Flimp immediately pops his into his mouth and violently chews it up as Frenchy looks on shaking her head.

Frenchy cracks her cookie open and begins reading. “A faithful friend is a strong defense.” Frenchy pauses as she thinks. “That is actually some great advise!”

Weaver cracks his cookie open and grins. “Check out mine! He who tosses mud loses ground! How deep is that!”

“And it is SO TRUE!” yells Frenchy.

“Charmy has already cracked his cookie open. Charmy is staring a hole through his cookie. “What the heck!”

“What does yours say?” asks Frenchy.

“404 error. Fortune cannot be read”, says Charmy.

“Wow”, says Weaver. “That cookie is beyond broke”.

And we end the scene.



This week marks the seventh anniversary of Charmy’s Army running in newspapers. We now begin our eighth year as we continue chasing a c=dream of mine that began when I was 4 years old. Yes, 51 years later and I am still dreaming of the day I get syndicated. I will keep working myself into the ground until I succeed. I will succeed.

The biggest piece of advice I give artists is simply this… Never stop believing. If you ever put a timeline on your dream, you are looking for an excuse to bail. To be honest, If I never figure out a way to make money with my art, I will be fine so long as I continue having a handful of papers running my work. I have a great day job that I actually love, so I am good… and keeping those bills paid. I am truly blessed.

Seven years is a great ride. During this time, I have gained a huge, loyal following. Having these monthly deadlines has kept my mind working on gags every day, thus improving my writing skills. Since I have so many people looking at my work week after week, I have continually improved my drawing style. Never once have I regretted having deadlines.

Here is to seven more amazing years… and counting!
