From The Bag of Tricks: My Imaginary, Illustrated French Family (Advance #34)


I'm so glad that I can finally introduce you to my cool, hastily-drawn French family.

Meet Henri, Sophie, Jean-Luc and Thérèse DelVecchio. They're the greatest.

What?  Hiding them from you?

Au contraire, mon ami. Denny just needed to wait until the right time to tell you.

I had to make sure that you'd be truly happy for us--without a hint of the cankered jealousy that you unfurled upon learning of the white hot groin-vacation I enjoyed with your sister-in-law at the 2005 North Mesa Clogger's Retreat.

Anyway, I'm off to engorge myself in Sophie's trademark grenouille aubergine, followed by a spongebath from the beguiling Thérèse, who, by the way, just finished her first year at Sarbonne.  (That's Denny's college girl!)

Merci Beaucoup,
Denny DelVecchio

You've come a long way since the turtle, Denny. Clearly, art school is paying off.

And I l ike Therese's (apologies for lack of accents) sleeves. They're real big. But not as much as I like the wallpaper.

The family is pictured as boy boy girl girl but you introduced them as boy girl boy girl so now I don't know which is which.

Unless Therese is the father.

Gosh that clog dancing sure attracts the sexy girls doesn't it?

I've also found myself engorged after sampling Sofie's grenouille aubergine.

I have a secret French family too...I just haven't found them yet.
Je voudrais parler Francais tout le temps.
