For those of you unfortunate enough never to have heard of the guy, Jeff Bacon is a former (and perhaps still active duty) Naval Officer who is the artist responsible for the comic strip "Broadside", which appears weekly in the Navy Times newspaper. To date, I have seen NO ONE manage to condense so much about Navy life into a single frame, as consistently, as brilliantly, and as hysterically as Mr. Bacon. The guy truly is a genius. So, to honor him and his brilliance, and to tickle your funny bone, I'm going to be posting one or two of his cartoons daily for everyone to enjoy. Have fun! Oh, and for those who may not get the gist of a particular strip, feel free to ask and I and my fellow travelers here will try to explain.
