When his agent said he’d gotten him a starring role in Grease, Eddy thought he meant the movie, not a gas station ad.


  1. Yeah, but Eddy’s smiling ’cause he just figured out that, most of the time, you make more money in advertising than in “art” anyway. Am I right or …?

    1. I don’t know, love. Neither does Eddy. This was his first gig. I think he’s smiling because a pay check is a pay check.

    1. Diane — indeed — and even though they are all a bit the same, they’re all a bit different, too, which really makes it fun.

  2. Clever. 🙂 And the symbol on the box in his hand brings to mind the old jingle, “Trust your car to the man who wears the star….”

  3. .
    Hardy har har har!!! 🙂 🙂 Great Quilly!
    Now perhaps we could get a minor role in that scene??
    p.s. This is a diversion from taxing my brain on Punny Monday!

  4. Love it, Quilly! I’ll bet Eddie can sing and dance–a plus for someone doing a commercial. Next gig could be in Hollywood.

    Now I’m going to go check out Punny Monday.

  5. Quil;

    I would have made the same mistake.
    Nice twist on thie weeks picture!
    Have a great 2011.

  6. Tough luck, Eddy! You’ve got to start somewhere. Don’t worry, bid your time. Afterall the guy who got the role, Travolta didn’t stay on long. He preferred to be a pilot, piloting his own plane!

    1. MGG — I saw someone else make something work that I was playing with but couldn’t get around. Inspiration can be fickle.
