Jump'n Jack Flash....er!

I honestly can't say anything more than
this cartoon jumped into my head when we were stopped
in Biloxi, Mississippi and the officer made this comment.

The rest is history

The Brothers Fonebone Rise Again!!

This is about as close to realism as this strip will ever get!
They get together to play "chicken" on Fridays and, oh look!
It's being posted on a Friday!!
How frigg'n bizarre is that??!!!
Ooh, life imitates art!!
I'm scared!!
I did spellcheck realism Dave! It says I should use realize!
I went back and checked it again.
It showed the proper spelling this time so I changed it.
Please disregard the above comment.
Thank you!

A Sensitive Subject

It's hard to come up with something funny
 when you're dealing with a subject as sensitive as death.
Besides, when your hands are
 greasy it's hard for your fingers not to slip off the keyddxc..*burp*1

A Special Request

Had a special request from the boss over the weekend.
She works for a health care insurance company and has to
keep all her paperwork and information sheets in a binder
that is readily available should she need to access information.
She wanted something different for the cover
so, this is what I came up with.
 She was happy, therefore I had a very nice weekend. 
Forgive the quality. I couldn't scan it due to its size,
so I took a picture with my phone.
You get the idea.

Never Play With Your Cleetus

Not having given it much thought,
I didn't notice that the dialogue of this particular
cartoon sounds kind of dirty.
I thought I had better change it, but decided not to.

Ah yes! Controversy, thy name is Cleetus!

Cliff Notes on History

One thing I try to do is base my strips on
 factual, albeit, little known miniscual facts.
I enjoy the fact that a lot of folks are unaware of some
of the things I present in my cartoons.
Then there is the obvious absurdity.
Trust me when I say that somewhere, someone will
come along and tell me that my facts are wrong about this cartoon.
That kind of scares me...a lot.
But, what bothers me most is when I'm not sure
of the correct spelling of a particular word and spell check doesn't recognize it.
Is albeit spelled correctly? 
Thank you.

Something Fishy for Friday

If this strip were in color the dead guy would be wearing a red shirt
and he would be assigned to the Security Detail. As anyone knows
who watched the original series, if there were to be a death
 before the opening credits the victim was usually a security officer.
Nicknamed "red shirts" they never lasted more 
than a few minutes, if that long, The running joke was if there was a
 red shirted security officer in the opening sequence that
actor must have pissed off Gene Roddenberry.

Turnabout is Fair Play!

As anyone knows, who knows me, I do not like to hunt.
For survival is one thing, for sport is another.
Unfortunately, My wife and I have made it a habit of living in states
 whose inhabitants not only love hunting of any sort
 but, cock fighting, dog fighting, and other forms 
of fighting as well. These activities are looked at as a great family outing!
 I am surrounded by the 'Good Old Boy" mentality, where the
 measure of one's manhood is reflected by
 the lives you take and the trophy heads hanging on the wall.
Want to be a real sportsman? Go into it
with the same weapons that the object of your hunt uses.
Oh wait a minute, they have no weapons!
They're unarmed and helpless! Silly me!
Sometimes my cartoons reflect my beliefs.
Sometimes they are simply for the punchline.
This one kind of goes for both.

Tender moments

I have been told that sometimes my cartoons border on the tasteless
 and that some are inappropriate for children.
 They especially do not care for this particular cartoon.

 All I can say is...Picky, picky, picky!

I do not draw for children! I draw for me!
Besides, how can this be inappropriate?
Because it deals with eating children?
Ask yourself that same question when you are munching
 that tasty piece of tender veal! 
Point of view my friends!
