So, yes, the Cornfather’s really moving out, but I couldn’t resist having a little bit more fun with him before he officially moves on. No doubt bot will experience much angst and drama during the move, not that the Cornfather (or you readers for that matter!) would expect anything less.
Much of this strip was taken from real events, in that my apartment’s living room looked more or less the same – minus one large couch – after my roommate (Michael Cornacchia, the inspiration for the Cornfather) moved out. I wish I could say I learned some sort of lesson from his spartan lifestyle and his ability to resist most collectible/material things, but that was not the case then, nor is it the case now. I’m sure many of you can empathize.
