  • Viking||

    That's racist.

  • Grandpa Whithers||

    This isn't and it's funny:

    Hide The Decline - Climategate

  • ||

    Dude, put it down at the bottom if you're not replying to the comment. What are you, lonewhacko?

  • ||

    I should say though that I like the video. Hopefully it's going viral.

  • Grandpa Whithers||

    Dude, put it down at the bottom if you're not replying to the comment.

    I was.

  • Art-P.O.G.||

    Meh. Definitely not in the same league as the last Friday Funny, even though the art in this one is good.

  • Uh Huh||

    I get it. There's going to be a battle.

  • Spencer||

    i don't see it.

  • ||

    Stantis flatters our Congresspeople. Meta-factual campaign speeches and backroom deals aren't exactly combat.

    Still, if I were in the Senate I would show up with a sharpened trident.

  • MNG||

    And a net?

  • ||


  • ||

    I wish this was how legislation were decided. We'd be well below the required 60 votes by now.

  • ||

    It's not Team Red vs Team Blue.

    It's Team Red-and-Blue vs us. Let the pillaging commence.

  • .||

    It's Team Purple vs. itself, actually. They only differ, philosophically, on the details.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    You all have it wrong. They're armed to protect themselves from public backlash.

  • Rich||

    One can hope it plays out like this.

  • ||

    Not funny
    Not meaningful
    Fair artwork

    Grade: D+

  • ||

    the vikings vs the cowboys? I don't get it

  • ||

    Wow, I have to admit that is pretty funny ddude!


  • ||

    Wow, privacy bot has a stutter?

  • ||

    It goes well with his terrible taste in comics.

  • Hormonal Redhead||

    Am I the only one who thought of the Capital One commercials?

    "Arrr! What's in *yer* wallet?"

  • ||

    THAT would have been funny.

  • JB||

    lol. Exactly.

    They are after everything in our wallets.

  • Some dude||

    So which ones are against Obamacare? The cowboys, pirates, vikings, knights, centurions...

  • Spencer||


  • Marc||

    I like cowboys.

  • ||

    Do you like gladiator movies?

  • The Ghost of Princess Di||

    I like horses. I like people who like horses.

  • ||

    I like you. You have balls. I like balls.

  • Kolohe||

    It's marginally better if you have the Star Trek fight music in your head when you look at it.

  • ||

    I assume you're referring to Amok Time music. Vulcans always win, dude.

  • ||

    The only good news is that the pirates and Vikings apparently haven't chosen sides yet. I smell a huge federal subsidy for eyepatches, peg legs, and longships coming down the pipe.

  • ||

    "Arrr! What's in *yer* wallet?"

    Apparently, Obama's fucking hand.

  • Ginko||

    Well, I like the idea of putting the sociopathic miseryshits of Congress in silly costumes, giving them weapons and having them battle to the death. Yeah, the "Amok Time" music would be perfect as Pelosi's eyes go wide at an incoming strike by a Klingon bat'leth.

  • BakedPenguin||

    Ginko, did you have to mention Pelosi? I instantly had a thought of her wearing this, and now I need some mind-bleach.

  • Paul||

    Oh, now I get it. It's a strongly bipartisan issue. Which party does the Pirate belong to?

  • Kolohe||

  • ||

    I thought it was a football reference.
    Vikings vs. Cowboys?

  • Nipplemancer||

    if more congresstards showed up in chambers looking like GWAR, i'd be a happy man.
    as for the comic, they couldn't get Chip Bok to bore us this week? D-

  • ||

    This cartoon works, sort of, if you squint your eyes really hard, and imagine it in the context of Professional Wrestling. The pirates-vikings-cowboys grudge match in the cage (The doors are welded shut!!!) is a bloody melee to the death.

    After the show, they all change into their street clothes and go to dinner together.

  • Suki||

    I smiled, but still a -1

    Keep trying.

  • Han Solo||

    To get this thing passed they would need to be "armed" to the teeth, however you want to interpret that.

    Something along those lines maybe?

  • ||

    wtf do you mean?

    *kills with lightsaber

  • Lester Hunt||

    My vote:

    Funny?: Yes.
    Obvious?: No.
    Artwork good?: Yes.

  • Shuya and Noriko||

    Battle Royale III: Congressional Edition

  • ||

    If only...

  • Chris||

    Ninjas Vs. the mortal enemy of the Ninja, the Pirate, would have been better

  • ||

    Clowns vs. Nuns would've been funnier.

  • ||

    Sorry, I don't find it funny at all. As a matter of fact, I find it slightly insulting.

  • battery||

    I can not express my feeling now Welcome to Chinese Tea And Chinese Tea Sets Store ,We Provide High quality Chinese Tea,Thanks for this useful post,

    My only point is that if you take the Bible straight, as I'm sure many of Reasons readers do, you will see a lot of the Old Testament stuff as absolutely insane. Even some cursory knowledge of Hebrew and doing some mathematics and logic will tell you that you really won't get the full deal by just doing regular skill english reading for those books. In other words, there's more to the books of the Bible than most will ever grasp. I'm not concerned that Mr. Crumb will go to hell or anything crazy like that! It's just that he, like many types of religionists, seems to take it literally, take it straight.

    seems to take it literally, take it straight.
