Camel City, baby

Picking up the oldest from the Sawtooth Center, I saw a poster advertising the March meeting of The Camel City Cartoonists' Guild and Social Club, which meets there. From the online blog:

Why is your organization called "The Camel City Cartoonists' Guild and Social Club" instead of just something like "The Winston-Salem Comics Club?"

Because it sounds cool, exclusive, and Victorian (even though it's none of those things). Also "Camel City" is a trucker nickname for Winston-Salem and whatever truckers do is cool--that's why Ashton Kutcher wears those meshback hats.

Heh.

Damn, I wish I could draw.
