    Is it just me, or does the dog look like Leon Panetta?

  • SIV||

    To say Bok is "phoning it in" would be a compliment.

  • Adam||

    Um... this might have been clever, say, a week ago. Before 18,561 other people made the exact same joke.

  • ||

    Oh - and C-

  • ed||

    It's deja vu all over again.

  • ||

    Sloth from Goonies has a pet anteater.

  • ||

    LOL, Chip Bok like totally ROCKS!

    If Bok's sharp insights get Democrats to tow the lion on taxes, I applaud him.

  • ||

    Nothing like a partisan jab when the economy is in the shitter because of Republican and soon-to-be-enacted Democratic policies. So timely! So relevant!

    So pointless.

  • Reinmoose||

    Wait - wasn't last week's Friday Funnies this exact same joke?

    [checks]

    yup.

  • ||

    Don't be silly RM. Last week two of them were standing up. Totally changes the context.

  • ||

    I get it now. Sorry, I'm kinda slow with some things.

    The funny part of Friday is making fun of unfunny cartoons. Do WE get paid for this?

  • ||

    I remember meeting Joel Pett at an editorial dinner when he was still with the Lexington (KY) Herald-Leader. I was young enough at the time to be impressed by his Pulitzer. Now I understand Pulitzers for cartoons are awarded for lack of options.

    It's like the Oscar for best animated feature. All you have to do to get nominated is make one.

  • libertarian democrat||

    You know it's going to be bad, but you always hope for a bit better...

  • ||

    I like the dog.

  • ||

    FrBunny,

    I remember meeting Joel Pett at an editorial dinner

    I am deeply sorry you had to go through that.

  • Xeones||

    Yo, fuck the Friday Funnies.

  • ..||

    It's like the Oscar for best animated feature. All you have to do to get nominated is make one.

    Thread-winner for stupidity.

  • Xeones||

    Yeah, the preview of the dog at the top of this page is way better than the entirety of the cartoon. The sum diminishes the part.

  • ||

    Where's his dog whistle?

  • ||

    Thread-winner for stupidity.

    Yay?

  • ||

    SugarFree,

    [namedrop] Add that to meeting Betty Winston Baye at a high-school assembly, and it's no wonder I hate newspapers. [/namedrop]

  • ||

    Sweet fuck, Bunny. I'm surprised a black hole of stupidity didn't swallow the room.

    I've dealt a lot with Pett, including watching him repeatedly asking out my married boss. Kept waiting, hoping I could see her throw him through a wood-chipper.

  • re: Fr Bunny||

    Your Betty Winston Baye should win a Pullitzer for this editorial gem:

    The Internet: A blessing and a curse

    There's so much good about the Internet. I would have loved when I was back in college and graduate school, for example, to have such instant access to so facts and such instant access to family and friends afar. But every good thing has its downside. For example, you can collect a lot of information surfing the net, but that doesn't make it all true. Moreover, cyberspace is a magnet for crooks and creeps. The crooks are out to steal your identity and to separate you from your cash. The creeps are out to infect your spirit with their vile rants. I always think how small, miserable, frightened and lonely must be those who apparently have nothing better to do than to throw up all over other people and to do so anonymously, or so they'd like to believe.

  • ||

    to do so anonymously, or so they'd like to believe

    That's creepy.

  • ||

    There is no anonymity, Bunny.

    Episiarch's real name is Horatio ManBlower.

  • ||

    List of Disney, Dreamworks Animation, and Pixar films combined (out of 21 produced) that didn't get nominated for best animated feature since the category began in 2001:

    Madagascar
    Flushed Away
    Shrek 3
    Bee Movie
    Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas
    Home on the Range

    SugarFree,

    Horatio ManBlower of the Kennebunkport ManBlowers? Their garden parties are legendary in the heteroflexible community.

  • ||

    Yes, I believe so. It's hard to be sure, because the ManBlowers, paradoxically, have hundreds of offspring.

  • Xeones||

    It's not such a paradox. They'll bang anything warm and concave, up to and including that weird dent in the side of joe's head.

  • ||

    But every good thing has its downside. For example, you can collect a lot of information surfing the net, but that doesn't make it all true.

    How insightful!

    *swoons*

  • ||

    the ManBlowers, paradoxically, have hundreds of offspring.

    It must have something to do with the fertility clinic in the basement.

    P Brooks,

    Check out the post where she is mystified by fans of UofL and UK basketball who never went to school there and then look at the post less than a month later where she, a non-native of KY and not an alumni of any KY school, enthuses about UofL women's basketball.

    Seriously, this is the sort of stupid it would be hard to make up. You put this stupid in a novel and it would be believable.

  • ||

    wouldn't be.

    And neither would my lack of typing ability...

  • BakedPenguin||

    Crap, I forgot it was Friday. Here's my alternative. It's marginally better!

  • ||

    BakedPenguin lies. It's quite good. Funny and disturbing at the same time.

  • hotsauce||

    I will subscribe immediately if reason starts running BakedPenguin's options instead.

  • ||

    Once again, the Penguin strikes paydirt.

    Here's an idea for you, if you're interested:

    Bush thought balloon: evil scrawny turbanned boogeyman

    Obama thought balloon: evil rotund tophatted and monocled boogeymen

  • ||

    P Brooks,

    Don't forget the crying Statue of Liberty.

  • ||

    BakedPenguin provides much needed Humor Stimulus once again.

  • Mike M.||

    Wait - wasn't last week's Friday Funnies this exact same joke?

    It should be reprinted every single time Timmy Turbotax has the I.R.S. haul some poor schlub into court.

  • Mike Laursen||

    If Bok's sharp insights get Democrats to tow the lion on taxes, I applaud him.

    "Tow the lion" is so much more interesting of an expression than "tow the line."

  • ||

    Toe the line.

    Or tow the lying.

  • Mike Laursen||

    It's my observation that a lot of libertarians are so critical of the government because they were younger they took good citizenship and obeying the laws and High School Civics seriously. Sort of like a lot of hardcore atheists who used to be religious.

  • Mike Laursen||

    Oh, yeah. "Toe the line". Thanks. Now can you make that damned Toto song, "Hold the Line", get out of my head?

  • ||

    What everyone else said.

    Chip Bok might be a nice guy, but isn't it time Reason got a cartoonist who had some wit and originality? P.S. Where's Peter Bagge these days?

  • Francesco Sinibaldi||

    A vocal path.

    You live
    near a vocal
    path, and always
    a young bird
    returns in your
    head like a
    beautiful song
    in the light
    of a white dream...

    Francesco Sinibaldi

  • ||

    P.S. Where's Peter Bagge these days?

    Indeed! I was just wondering that, and why they don't have Peter do the Friday Funnies.

  • Digital Converter Box||

    It sure take a lot to find awesome information such as this. Thank you.. Respect.
