Census Laffs


This is a ten year old Almanac, back when Stomp jokes were new and untried. Below is an illustration from Smithsonian Magazine for an article that somehow dealt with the beginnings of census taking and which I no longer remember anything else about. But the flies were fun to draw, I remember that much.

You too, happily, are untranslatable.

If the census were, indeed, done quadrennially, it would be a pain, but they're done decennially instead.

Except maybe into gibberish, Paul.

Neil, I'm not sure why I said that. The top line was pasted on when it was collected in the book, so it's there for the ages, which aren't paying too much attention. And I'm too lazy to fix it right now.

But decennially is such a fun word! And it gets the spellcheck all upset, too.

Anything that annoys spellcheck is OK by me! I'll fix it in photoshop when I get a chance. Decennially!

You and your photoshop! I bet you have your own font!
