Broom Hilda (7/7/10)

Have you ever seen the TV show Hoarders? The one that chronicles (some might say exploits) people who fill their homes with useless junk? Well, that’s the opposite of me. I like my living environment uncluttered and my reserves plentiful. I believe in saving now and spending later. And while I’m not an ascetic, I do tend to overlook costly material things in favor of simple pleasures like running outside or cooking a good meal. The point is, I would never clutter my home so completely that I could roll around in filth. Still, I have to admire the way the “garbageman” is drawn in this strip. His robust funk and uncanny good cheer even puts Pigpen to shame.
