Carp et deum

Not really the point of this poem at all, but I wonder what Charles Bukowski looked like as a little kid.

The crab

A cancer cartoon. Believe it or not, this was the cheeriest cartoon I could find this morning. And personally, I think Ed should have someone look at his nose. That doesn’t look good to me.

Coming attractions

Churro*.
Named for a Portuguese snack.
French bulldog.
Living in Silver Lake.
What happens
when Churro feels the clash of his cultures
and has to make…
THE FRENCH ESCAPE
?

Rated PG-13 for language and extreme tongue situations.

*Benny learned his name was Churro from the Nextdoor Silver Lake group. Thanks for being there so we don’t have to, Benny.

Flapper Boots and the Underpants King

Yesterday was this cartoon’s 95th birthday. I think it holds up pretty well. Lots of gags and a radio hypnotizer to boot.

If this isn’t a dog costume, I don’t what is

My brilliant friend Nessie entered the Long Beach Howl’oween Parade dog costume contest with her dog Merf this weekend.

They did not win, and while I feel that’s kind of an outrage, I can’t stay mad too long when I look at the winner.

It was kind of a ridiculous day and I would recommend it to anyone. Turn on this Halloween playlist from WFMU and take a look at some of the other contestants and spectators.





Get ready brother, your time has come

This cartoon is so iconic that it’s been copied a lot for faux vintage cartoon projects, but I don’t think I’ve ever posted it before. Three days from Halloween seems like a good time to do so. Beware: there’s no happy ending to this one. Steal a chicken and your days are numbered, bub.

Sexy robot overlords

Janelle Shane has done the world a great service by training a neural network to come up with some good Halloween costumes. The neural network did not disappoint. Some highlights that you might want to try:

  • Celery Blue Frankenstein
  • Lady Garbage
  • A masked box
  • Shower Witch
  • Zombie Fire Cith Bader Ginsburg
  • The Barboon
  • Sexy The Super Bass
  • Statue of Pizza
  • Panda Clam
  • Sexy scare costume
  • Barfer

There are more ideas here and here. There’s still time left this weekend to work on one of these. Barfer should be pretty easy.

Mama mia

I don’t usually post things that have been posted in a million other places already, but this is a nice monkey/human story, and I think we could all use a nice monkey/human story right about now so I’m reposting in case anybody missed this.

RIP, Mama.

Thanks for the tip, madamjujujive!

Loves them ghosks

You know, maybe Bluto’s so mad all the time because people never pick up on his hidden talents. Look at all he does in this cartoon. He’s a gifted ventriloquist, mimic, marionettist and special effects makeup artist. On top of that, he knows how to tie a cravat.

Stop chasing Olive, Bluto. There’s some other girl out there just waiting for a special star like you.

Anchored Hawkings

You might think that I’m posting this lost cat notice because the cat’s name is unusual. Or because all of the last minute hand-edits with sighting locations indicate the owner has been just one step behind a very wily character. Or that “Please help me find my kitty before moving” is kind of a weird imperative sentence to say to a stranger.


But I’m actually posting it because of something you can’t tell from the photo – the fact that this was taped to the ground. On a driveway into a Chipotle parking lot, to be specific. Maybe it was taped there by the owner in the hopes that Hawkings would see it and feel guilty and come home. An interesting tactic that I haven’t seen before.
