Cartooning for fun and profit

Folks, I’ve shown you how to get lessons for playing guitar Cowboy and Hawaiian style, as well as how to get lessons for playing the saw. I know some folks have already done these things, profitted tremendously, and are planning on soon giving me a large grant to support my wild lifestyle for the rest of my life. For those of you out there that haven’t quite reached that level of fame, might I suggest you get away from trying to succeed in music and instead start working on that cartooning career you’ve always wanted to try?
