This strip was devised about half a year ago when I was sitting next to my coworker Ryan. We all used Power Macs for our work computer but all of them were hooked up to a central server. Sometimes the company network would get so congested that opening and saving files became extremely slow. Occasionally our computers crashed because of the network problem – and the precursor was the non-stop spinning cursor that we all called the “Beach Ball of Death” or “Marble of Doom”. One day we were all staring at the spinning beach ball and suddenly Ryan suggested making a comic about the Beach Ball of Death jumping out of the monitor killing/torturing the user. He even drew the evil beach ball on a piece of paper for me. His beach ball of death was really evil looking but I had to kick it up a notch to make it more evil looking. (You know I am joking, right?)
I told him I would save the comic for halloween because the concept didn’t seem to blend well with Chloroville. Now halloween is here and poor Jon-Jon is having one big nightmare.
P.S. I am actually a fan of Apple’s products and I am sure they wouldn’t mind I play some fun with them.
