Matt and Mandy

Illustrations by Matt Sweeney

Hey, Matt. Wanna hear a joke?

Mmmmaybe …

Come here, then. We don’t want the playground aide to hear it.

Oh, I guess maybe I don’t want to hear it either.

What’s the matter? Chicken?

No. But Stretch is, and he doesn’t like those kinds of jokes either. He thinks they’re gross.

Who? What?

I mentioned your name to some guys at school. Hope you don’t mind.
