Anything?


Kiwi Ghost Chips posted:



He realized he needed to make tax comics, but combined it with a two week old joke anyway

So, what's the joke? Why is this man an April Fool? Because he's not actually getting a refund and the IRS is playing a prank on him? Or because he's an idiot for being thankful that the government is giving back his own money? Because that last one would be the more obvious one, but seems a little too sophisticated for Tinsley.

It's the second one. "Oh this guy's so happy about getting a refund, but the dope already paid taxes, so he's basically just getting his own taxes back, what an idiot hurp durp"

I like how he chose some businessman to reflect tax burden rather than a [poorer] person who actually could legitimately appreciate a refund.

It's not bias on your part. That's objectively good. The lack of labels allows for some ambiguity in the interpretation, that is, letting the person looking at it get the meaning they find in it other than hammering them over the head with the illustrator's intended meaning or, in the case of most of the people posting here, hammering down an intended meaning but being so loving stupid that the opposite meaning is a more justifiable interpretation. That's actual art and not just editorial cartoon wankery.

Yes. They don't know yet that some dirty foreign Muslim did it, so they could be accusing a True American Patriot of terrorism when in fact all he was doing was exercising his God-given right to rise up against the oppressive tyranny of the Obama administration.

That's how Chris Muir thinks. I'm pretty sure that he punched the air when he heard about the Oklahoma bombing. He is a despicable man, and if you ever wanted a reason not to post his poo poo in this thread any more it's that this is the most attention he ever gets. Let him starve, let him wither, let him die.

I'm totally in agreement with this. Alternately, give him his own thread. It can't possibly end worse than the Kate Beaton thread.

Even if "ignore it and it'll go away" had ever worked in human history, Muir, unlike Galatianman, has an unironic fanbase. Clumsily vectorising tits will do that. It's not very big, but neither's this thread.

Fitzsimmons' is the only decent one of the bunch, I agree, but the rest are just so drat bad. I mean look at that crying Uncle Sam and that no-effort "Ramirez-Hug-The-Victims" knock-off, not to mention the horrifying bloody pseudo Nike ad. loving hell.

Why the Jackie Robinson cartoons suddenly? Because that movie came out? Or did the movie come out in honor of an anniversary these cartoonists are all also celebrating?

Fun fact, when I heard about the movie '42,' I was looking forward to watching a biopic about Bill Clinton. I somehow got the idea that it was a reference to his order in the presidency.

Agreed that every single Marathon cartoon so far has been bad, but keep in mind that all we really know at this point is that bombs went off at a big sporting event and people died. There isn't really much to do with that other than A Thing Happened, unless you are Chris Muir and completely without shame.


This one managed to both be tasteless AND not say anything, though. Impressive. (jesus christ shut up broelman)


I actually kinda like that Kerry caricature. Holbert keeps impressing me despite myself. Really would have thought he would have had something to say about the Marathon bombing considering he lives in Boston, but both he and Wasserman have been silent on the matter so far.

Because the elephants' "red paint" actually represents voter suppression tactics, which everybody hates, they are helping grow the blue areas just as much as the donkeys are with the community-outreach programs in their blue paint cans. The metaphor works even better than it was intended to!

Especially since the marathon was sponsored by Nike's rival. Is he implying it was corporate warfare??

I've been searching for this comic forever, but can't find it via the Googles. It's a simple series of drawings with animals saying terrible things, like a chicken who thinks Hitler wasn't that bad.

Anyone know where I could find that?
