I’m gonna open up myself a flea market And you’re gonna wish that you did And retire on the profits
First off, I’m gonna empty out all of my Mrs. Butterworth jars And I’m gonna put ‘em on a shelf With my 800 dollar a month tax free Century21 shop And then I am going to put my Mrs. Butterworth syrup jars on the shelf Next to all the commemorative fast food chain glasses and cups I’ve accumulated over the past 62 years
Then I’m going to get some plywood I’m going to get some plywood And cut them up into two by two feet squares Then I’m going to get some burlap And I’m going to cut them into two by two feet squares And then I’m going to put them onto the pieces of plywood And then I’m going to go to the beach I’m going to go to the beach And I’m gonna collect some shells and driftwood
And then I’m going to take the shells and driftwood And glue them onto the plywood and burlap And sell 'em for lots of money People will be paying top dollar For my kids’ new used new toys and clothing Then maybe someday I can get rid of that piss-stained mattress I’ve been sleeping on
So March 8th was International Women’s Day as well as National Pancake Day. Earlier
in the day I made a quick sketch to celebrate both things at once, then later decided to clean it up and bring the art to completion. Even though the special observations that inspired the piece are now over for the year, the piece is finally posted! And it’s never a bad time to celebrate women or pancakes!
This also happens to fall under the March 8th Sketch Dailies topic of Rosie the Riveter.
