Never brought to mind

As the extremely legit-looking scientist says, “If things don’t get worse, they definitely will get better.” All I know is that my shadow feels so very, very long right now and I’m ready for a fresh start. Good luck with 2018, everybody.

Yule love it

There’s still time to listen to some Kmart holiday music from 1974 and snuggle up by the candy corn fire.

Merry Christmas!

The night before the day before

Sometimes during the holidays you don’t get a Christmas-y cartoon on Saturday morning. Sometimes you get a Christmas-y horror movie on Saturday night.

Yeti Christmas, everybody.

Climate change

Hey, sorry I didn’t post a cartoon last week but I was at a fire festival where we couldn’t actually have a fire because everything else in the state is currently on fire. All these fires and the warm temperatures in general are not really putting me in the Christmas spirit. Thankfully I found a cartoon that brings these two ideas together. It’s long too, so hopefully that makes up for last week’s absence.

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.





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.

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.

But can she bake a cherry pie?

There’s a pretty good gag in this cartoon involving the raspberry jam making a “raspberry.” I started wondering why the derisive noise also known as a “Bronx cheer” came to be known as a raspberry, and I learned that it comes from Cockney rhyming slang. “Raspberry tart” = “fart.” Well, there you have it. Enjoy those tarts, everybody.

A cup of kindness yet

2017, I’m trying not to burden you with a lot of expectations. Google autofill gave me “worse” when I typed in “2017 will be…”, and even when I typed in “2017 will be better,” the first result was an op-ed entitled “2017 Will Probably Be Terrible,” accompanied by a Wal-Mart ad.

I don’t know what to do here. 2017, am I cursing you to mediocrity by not pushing you to be the best you can be? Or am I putting too much pressure on you if I do that, dooming you to failure? Oh, 2017. What will you be?

Wanna buy a duck?

It’s snowing on the blog again, which means it’s time for Christmas cartoons. Hooray! I think I get a lot of the old references here, though I’m not sure why Bing Crosby is a wind-up goat. I don’t understand the jack-in-the-box/bead toy “Why are you wearin’ the whiskers?” exchange, either. Anybody know what that’s about?
