Nite-Owl was a strip I conceived in an attempt
to open my own Late-Night Cheese-Steak &
Fries Delivery Service in a College Town
where I used to live. The idea was to staple
a MENU to each customer's bag, the other
side of which would contain a serialized
weekly segment of the Nite Owl's
original comic strip. Every 100th
customer on any given night
would have their food delivered
by the Nite Owl himself~!
Making delivery loads of
fun and creating a mysterious
persona in the process. 'Oh~
My~ God~! Guess who delivered
my cheese steak last night~!?'
Hopefully, customers would
order at least once a week
to keep up with the Nite Owl's
Unfortunately, banks will only loan
money to people with some kind of
collateral, something the bank can
take from you if your business
venture fails. I feel sorry for People
who lack imagination, who rely on
what others think in order to form
their 'own' judgments & opinions.
They can't grasp certain concepts,
because they lack clarity of vision.
I think the world might be a better
place if we allowed the lunatics to
run the asylum~!
