A rejected cartoon I really liked

This sketch did the rounds at the Journal Star and the Omaha Reader, but nobody bit, even though I really wanted it to run.

Nebraska’s own astronaut, Clayton Anderson, was the star of several news stories the past week or so, since he’s the first Nebraskan to get shot up into space. One of Clayton’s big duties, as detailed in many of the stories, was to take some junk from the station and toss it out into space, where it would join the existing debris in that great landfill in the sky.

Maybe it was too easy, but I just loved the look of joy on the kid’s face as he littered his Happy Meal.
