This sawmill cartoon is a bit on the fringe so don’t be too hard on yourself if it made you scratch your head.
Sometime after 9/11 (the infamously tragic one, not the one two months ago) the New York City Metropolitan Transit Agency (the folks that run the buses and subways) started a public safety campaign urging citizens to report suspicious behavior with the slogan, “If you see something, say something”. The campaign was later adopted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and used nationally. A longtime Bizarro Jazz Pickle suggested turning the phrase to what is displayed on the sign above. It made me chuckle, so I turned it into this cartoon. As a tip of the hat to the contributor, I named the sawmill after him. (more…)
My big Sunday Comics gag today is okay, I guess, but for my money there’s just as much fun to be had in the small background gags. There are also 10 Secret Symbols to search for. If you’re not sure you know what all of my Secret Symbols are, click here. If you click the cartoon (and this damn blog is working properly) you’ll get an enlarged view for better examination. I hope it pleases you. (more…)
Just for the record, I’m all for organic, locally-grown food. Our current food system is deadly to our health and that of the environment. I am against forcing children to lug backpacks weighing several hundred pounds to school, however.
Here’s a cute idea from my friend, Brian Levy. He claims he lives in Texas somewhere but I’ve never been to his house so I’m not sure if I should believe it. (more…)
This is a pretty strange comic, I admit. The back story is that one of the cliches in the cartoon canon is the premise showing a guy in a bar telling someone his wife doesn’t understand him. I’ve used this motif before here and here and probably a few other times, too. In this case, I had three gags in my sketchbook based on the same cliche and decided to use them all in one cartoon. Why the last guy has a piece of toast shoved in his mouth is anyone’s guess. I welcome your suggestions. (more…)
Hello, mates. (Imagine me saying this paragaph with an English accent.) Do you like jolly good fun? Well you’ve come to the right drum and bass, by George, because that’s what I’ve brought you today with these four brand new, hot-from-the-crumpet-oven cartoons! Can you find all 7 icons (or “secret symbols”) in this large Sunday cartoon above? It’s a tough one. To make it bigger, click on the lady’s shoe. (more…)
When I was a kid I had a friend who had one of those “Slow Children Playing” signs in front of her house. We used to tease her that she and her sister must be “slow”. Clearly, this is a sign that could use some punctuation to avoid this kind of cruelty. (more…)
