This last weekend I had a table at a local Vancouver market, the Eastside Flea, where I sold some of my classic beloved items such as Beef Buddy cards, prints, and some exclusive copies of TomatoPotato (all of which are available online in my Etsy shop). I would like to say thank you to everyone who came by, told me how cool my stuff was, and supported the Land of Le Beef.
Growing up in Canada, you sometimes get to see a wild moose. Rarely do you get to see a wild elephant, and you certainly never get to see a wild marching band.
I won't say much about this cartoon, because I think it's pretty obvious. Unless of course, you have never seen the viral video 'What Does the Fox Say', by the Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis - which case it isn't obvious at all, and probably pretty confusing...
Anyway, since the song 'Foxy Lady' by Jimi Hendrix hit the airways in 1967, foxes haven't had much other musical representation, so it was only a matter of time before someone swooped in and gave foxes the modern recognition that they deserve. I salute you Ylvis.
