Two Far-fetched Characters

Handlebar Bill: The notorious gum-cracking, big-hat-wearing, stick-in-the-mud, broccoli eatin', two-bit, four-flusher with a mustache as wide as a pizza pie—bad guy. 

Luciano LaCheeze: Crooner of the crown. Song-mouse of the tresses (and quite a bit shorter than you might think). Affectionately known in some parts as, Frank, due to his rather lively rendition of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.”

The Wordwizard

My original inspiration for this piece was just a goofy sketch I did while watching TV. (I don't remember what was on.)

The idea of a convoluted cycle seemed interesting enough. But where was it going? And who was riding it, and why? Clearly, I didn’t have a plan at the moment, but I was having fun. Sometimes you just gotta fly by the seat of your pants. To quote Indiana Jones, “I don’t know, I’m making this up as I go.”
