I don’t know that there’s ever been a time when this WASN’T a big surprise. You’ve probably seen it before, people whose eyes randomly have an abnormal amount of blood in at least one of their eyes because maybe they had some operation or a capillary burst. Bloodshot eyes are no big deal, but when there’s a BIG RED SPOT in a person’s eye there’s no way not to notice it, because the eyes simply weren’t meant to have those big spots of blood. It’s very hard to communicate with a person who has this going on because you know you’re staring at it and they know you’re staring at it but you’re trying to keep the conversation going.

I was going to use one of my stored up comic ideas, but then I saw a guy on the subway who had a small amount of blood in his eye and I thought of this.
