"My wife told me to pick up some milk... and I got a little something for me too!"

Several months ago, I entered a Costco cartoon contest. The rules were simple. Do something funny that is obviously taking place in a Costco store. I go to Costco all the time... and I draw cartoons... so I thought I would take a shot at it. My wife has a true story about seeing a friend of ours walking out of Costco one day with a gallon of milk and a huge flat screen TV. We thought this was a funny contrast, so I turned it into this cartoon. As is my habit, I put this off till the night before the contest ended. But I whipped this out and I think I sent it to the proper email address. I hope I did anyway. My INSTINCT told me that I was going to be the winner of a cool Costco gift card. But my instinct was wrong... very wrong... sigh...

So... what do you think? Is this cartoon funny? Is my Funny-O-Meter out of whack? Tell me what you think. One lucky comment, selected at random, will win a free Snugglie, a set of Ginsu steak knives and one of the failing US automakers (your choice)

So... did you hear about the TIME the preacher went to visit a man in the hospital? At one point the man scribbled a note and handed it to the preacher, who folded it up and stuck it in his pocket without reading it. Later at the man's funeral, the preacher thought it would be dramatic to read the man's last words he had written on the note. He pulled the note out of his pocket and read... "GET OFF MY OXYGEN HOSE!"
