Wine Gum Factory Tour
on June 10, 2013 at 12:00 am
Being allowed into a wine gum factory is a treat for anyone, but especially for Wombies, who just might never leave.
Our good friend Debbie Adams sent us a special Happy Easter card this year featuring her whole Wombie clan, Dink, Chewy, Shadow, Cookie, and Tink. More of Deb’s great art can be seen on her art blog.
It’s not that funny if you have to pay for it!
They could always use their allowances to get in…
But I wanna get in before the end of summer!
How much is your allowance??
$5. But Chris still owes me $9,740 from a couple of weeks ago!
Hmm, I could sell you my ticket for lets say $45.
How about a cool $20 Loon 🙂 xxxx
That’s more like it!
I’ll go you halves Androgoth
So does that mean $10?
No it means $5 another two commenters and friends of Wombania have joined Loon and I and shared it for this one 🙂
Thanks Loon xxxx
I think I’d better call Binky in on this one. I’m lost!
Loon says that you have to pay the $45 Chris but never mind there is a bag of curried peanuts and some toasted sprouts in the price so it’s a bargain 🙂
I think I’d rather go to the art gallery!
I think there are a crowd following you Chris, was it the mention of sprouts do you think? 🙁
Well it won’t be the Wombies following me for sprouts!
That’s true, I wonder if chocolate
sprouts would entice them? 🙂 🙂
Solid chocolate sprouts would, but I don’t know about chocolate-dipped sprouts.
I’ll sell mine for $40 😆
I could offer $15 if you are interested? 🙂
That’s even better!
Sell your what, Duncan? 😉
Might be better not to ask.
I was wondering that too but as this is a family cartoon I thought that I would let someone else ask? 🙂
Don’t ask, don’t tell!
I like your logic Peter 🙂
3rd! Doesn’t have the same ring has 1st! 😐
I’ll get you next time Loon. 😉
I bought a package last week for 98 cents and only ate about 1/4 of the bag before the sugar caused an insulin spike and I was lethargic. I’m not sure about a $5 dollar charge. To get my money’s worth I would have to stay a few days.
Be careful Dave, Loon will be
eating all of your free wine gums 🙁
I’ve got first dibs on Dave’s wine gums!
Loon can eat the other 3/4 of the bag, I’m full.
Not if I get them first!
You have already had fifteen bags Winky 🙂
I needed to get warmed up!
No way, she has to share them with me 🙂
I don’t think she’ll have any to share!
I guess you’re just not built for wine gums. I’ll be happy to take them off your hands.
You’ll have to fight loon for them but if you trade me gummy bears for them they are yours!
In a fight for wine gums, I don’t think Loon has a chance!
Wait a minute. Who is running this factory? Since when do FREE samples cost money?
Is it so much to get in and then the wine gums are free?
That’s what the sign says, though I suspect it’s a ruse to lure in unsuspecting Wombies.
They charge for everything these days!
I notice that Chris doesn’t trust you Wombies very much with adding such a high admission fee 🙁
But then of course it might not have anything to do with Chris, what do you think Fraz?
I didn’t make up the admission prices! If I did, we’d all be getting in free. Blame the wine gum company!
Upside down marketing. You charge the least for those who are your best patrons. Are they drinking the wine instead of flavoring?
Yeah let us in free! Without us Wombies you’d be nothing!
Andro what if this is not Chris 🙁
what if this is an imposter..it has to be why else would chris behave like this :O
Why do I always get blamed for these things?
It’s that cologne of
yours, it warps our thoughts 🙁
Soma, let’s give Chris some
sweeter smelling cologne next
time, the skunk brand is just
not working for hm 🙁
But Eau de Elk is a great cologne!
that’s what it says on the
bottle but I think it’s a fib 🙁
They would fib?
Maybe? I suppose it depends on how
many they think someone will buy 🙂
Maybe just me.
I like the Happy Easter gift that
Deb gave to you Peter, it’s brilliant 🙂
I have also had fun commenting on your cartoon today, Winky seems happy about the $50 admission, but then it will be Chris forking out his cash so who cares if it is $100 for Wombies? 🙁 Poor Chris
Thank you, Andro!
You can’t pass up a wine gum tour no matter how much it costs!
Unless the only thing in ones pocket is lint.
Then maybe I could bribe them with chocolate!
Good idea, Winky!
Chocolate makes the world go around!
And Space too, don’t
forget the other planets 🙂
And dark matter chocolate!
And and the world revolves around Fraz…He told you that right?
Fraz told me, but I don’t believe him. I think most of the universe is made of dark chocolate, so everything revolves around it.
Now I can go with that theory, but don’t tell Fraz I said so.
I won’t! He’s too busy pirating to notice!
Good! By the time he gets back we’ll all be on a new post. 😉
And we get to eat all that dark chocolate by ourselves! Well I guess not all of it. The universe is a pretty big place!
You need a rocket of your own so you can get out there and bring us back huge amounts. Binky can run the rocket from ground control. All you have to do it sit in there till you get there…then start mining.
That sounds like a job for me! I’ll see if I can convince Binky to do it! Sometimes he doesn’t really trust me very much.
Now that might take some coaxing. Good luck, Winky, and just remember. It’s all for the sake of chocolate! 🙂
I know! I’ll be trying extra hard!
He told me that too Deb but I already knew it so we shared some more wine gums as a treat 🙂 We saved you some though 🙂 xxxx
And saved me some, too, I hope!
Oh yes there is always plenty left over for you Winky, I know you like a large helping 🙂
Large is my middle name!
Yikes! $260.00 for all of us to get in!
But worth it! Just ask Dink!
I know what he’ll say.
More like this…
Thank you for posting my clan’s Easter gift for Wombania! I tried to tell the to use a nice blue background but Cookie wanted pink.
Very Beautiful art work Deb ♥ ♥ ♥
Thank you, Soma!
You’re welcome, Deb. It’s a little past Easter, but it’s still nice to show it off.
The thought of Easter will inspire Winky to make more chocolate. Ha, as if he needs help in that department!
Chocolate Easter Summer eggs!
Sounds good to me…Ship me a box fro my clan please.
I’ll send you a truckload!
I am ready for chocolate flowers. Mmm.
I should start making those! They’d be big sellers!
I buy more of those than I do chocolate shoes. And I buy a lot of chocolate shoes.
I’d better start making chocolate shoes then, too!
Hey I am half human half wombie how much do I have to pay…
and BTW why are wombies paying!! what kind of wine gum factory is this??
I don’t know how much you’d have to pay but I bet you could get in for the people price! Maybe I should dress up as Chris!
If it was my wine gum factory, we’d all get in free!
If you dress up as Chris that means you will be paying everyone’s admission fees, but if it was your factory then all the goodies are for free 🙂
I guess you’re right. Maybe I can get Fraz’s Genie to buy the factory and then we can all get in for free! And maybe even we could live there!
I like the idea of that Winky 🙂
It should be fun! If Genie will help us.
She will I am sure of it 🙂
I hope so! I want to camp out in the wine gum factory!
Hahaha… I’m surprised it’s not a bit more!
I love Chris’ slight reflection in the plaque, by the way… those kinds of details you always include are such nice finishing touches!
Thanks, Robert. I really should concentrate more on the artistry of the strips but often just run out of time.
I like the added details too
SIG and Peter always manages
to thrill everyone with these 🙂
I don’t know about the thrill part, but thanks anyway, Andro.
Well I am thrilled by them, and I know that Deb is too, in fact everyone enjoys Wombania and that is a fact 🙂
I’m thrilled that you’re thrilled!
Bwahahahahahahaha. I can see why it’s so expensive for Wombies. They can eat you out of house and home.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Wombies can’t resist a good wine gum! Or even a not so good one! If there is such a thing.
Maybe that is based on the orange one’s, I’m not so keen on that flavour but I like the green and red ones, and the blacks are yummy too 🙂
I like the orange ones! And the red ones! And the black ones! Well, okay, I guess I like all of them!
Now why does that NOT surprise me? 🙂
I don’t know.
Just covering the cost for the wombies.
Maybe not for me!
I’d scream discrimination!
So would I if my mouth wasn’t full!
That seems a bit steep for Wombies especially just to GUM wine! W.C.C.
But gumming wine gums is worth it!
hahaha…sounds like the factory knows about Wombie’s appetite for wine gums! 🙂
I guess they do. We’re they’re biggest customers!
They have to pay for the damages somehow….
That’s not damages! That’s the way we show our love!
That’s what they did to teenage boys at the all you can eat Chinese buffet, except the prices only increased a little. I guess Wombies eat a lot.
I can eat my weight in wine gums in five minutes flat!
Ha, Ha this is too funny.
Oh Dear,and that’s what it is, so very dear, ’tis a liberty Winky, ’tis most decidedly discrimination against wine gum eating Wombies. You should have a word with your local Wombie representative (give him a few Wine Gums as payment, as in Wine Gum for Question type of thing. ) xPenx
That’s a great idea! I should try that. If I could get in for the people price I’d be at the factory every day!
At that price you need to take your sleeping bags and camp out for a week.
That sounds good to me! I’d stay there all summer if I could!
When is wine gum camp?
Wine gum camp?? I’ve never heard of that! I wanna go!
I would have thought you would have been preregistered.
I woulda been if I knew about!
Mmmm… Wine gums.
What’s a wine gum?
The best candy you could ever image! They’re sort of like gummy bears, but better, though one human around here doesn’t agree. You can look here: Wine gums!
The best plans are always sample plans!
It’s hard to beat free samples!
I may just be too lucky and get a free ‘on the house pass’ from one of the wombies Winky or Binky 😉
You can have a free pass to my chocolate factory anytime! But I’m not sure if they’ll let you in the wine gum factory for free.
I think they need some kid disguises. 🙂
I think you’re right! I could go as Hank!
I think they would charge Hank the Wombie price.
You might be right. Then maybe I should dress up as, I don’t know, Charlie Brown maybe.
Yeah. It’s ALL YOU CAN EAT. Totally worth it.
For me it is! I don’t think they know how much I can eat!
Good appetite is a sign of good health 😉
I’m in really really good stupendous health, then!
You are always full of
beans, I mean wine gums 🙂
It’s hard not to be when they’re so yummy!
I bet you have already eaten
three or fourteen bags today already 🙂
Not quite yet, but I’m working on it!
Come on, Chris! Be generous! 😀
Yeah Chris, we’re only Wombies once!
he he he… Obviously they’ve had Wombies tour through previously. I bet they still eat more than their money’s worth
I might. Kinda. A bit. Okay, I’d eat a lot more than that!
Gyahahahaha…take them back home Chris!! 200 dollars is just too much just for a visit to a factory
But it’s a wine gum factory! It’s worth it!
hahahaha clever people….I guess wine gum is another favourite of the wombats?
How did you know? Yeah, I eat my weight in wine gums every week! Sometimes every day!
