F Minus dares to ponder thoughtful perplexities like, "Why are we here?" "What is life all about?" and "Can I take only one shower per week if it's seven times the normal length?" * This thinking man's cartoon panel is less than a year old and already appears in more than 100 newspapers. More About F Minus Short on life lessons, precious moments, and pearls of wisdom, Tony Carrillo's F Minus takes on life's serious issues by pinning them to the ground and stealing their lunch money. (Then it feels a little bit guilty and gives some of the money back.) * As Carrillo explains, "I draw my material from my experiences at a wide array of failed careers. Over time, I have worked as a pizza cook, Web site designer, dancing costumed character, portrait artist, insurance drone, waiter, custom framer, camel ride attendant at the zoo, and the guy at the airport that waves orange wands at the airplanes. As varied as these jobs were, eventually I had the profound realization that they all had two important things in common: Each offered a wealth of comedic inspiration and there was always a creepy guy named Larry."
