 Back in the time on newspapers, the Sunday comics were a weeklong anticipated event. Now, I wait for Taj’s comics with the same enthusiasm. Great job, the art, the humor and the life is all there. Thank you very much!

 Not to mention Taj is a legit legend in the realm of any bicycle riding, like few authors here are. And a very down-to-earth one too. A tanker of Love to him! Big Grin

 Man, I wish I was an octopus. I wouldn't need a hydration pack. I could use one hand to hold my water bottle. Matter fact, I wouldn't need a remote for my dropper post and I could adjust my suspension on the fly. I wouldn't even need a shifter and I'd still have an extra arm to spare. Most importantly, I wouldn't break any bones.

Tell me, O Octopus, I begs,
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus
If I were thou, I'd call me Us.

 If you were an octopus, you would be dead because I had you for dinner last night with a Korean BBQ glaze and Shishito peppers

 If this hypothetical MTB octopus is taking votes, I think doing your own follow cam shots would be a good use for that last unused arm.

 Dear Taj,

Please could you make a T-shirt with no.2 on it! Or could I have your permission to get one printed myself? It's soooo good!

Yours admiringly,

 Back in the day you could send money to Terrible One, Taj’s old Company with Joe Rich, and Taj or Joe or their artist Sieben would send you back a hand drawn with Sharpie T-Shirt of whatever the hell they felt like drawing. Wish I had of gotten more of them, I wonder how many they drew.

 Nah, he is isn’t “reading” porn. Reading is a sub-genre you just aren’t hip to yet. He prefers porn where the actors are intellectuals. Sheesh- gotta spell it out for ya
