    Looks like Newt has already gotten to at least one finger on each of Mitt's hands. And Santorum, with the fivehead, is standing as though he is trying to keep santorum from squirting out.

  • SPOILER ALERT!||

    Thread downhill from here.

  • Depto||

    Mitt Mirror definitely needed a label.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    ...but then I took an arrow to the funny bone.

  • Ska||

    Oddly enough - a video that ties both Skyrim and saws together:

    Accident at the saw mill.

  • ||

    I wish I had a computer fast enough to play new games. As it is, a Nintendo emulator hammers it.

  • rather||

    Farting in a jar on a Friday - much better use of your time.

  • Drax the Destroyer||

    It would be better if Ass Juice and the Grinch were Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while Mitt was Johnny Cage. And somewhere in the back is Paul as Shang Tsung.

  • Fatty Bolger||

    Only Bok would think to juxtapose horror film cliches with an entirely unrelated video game. Brilliant!

  • ||

    Does Mitt nut-punch someone?

  • Quetzalcoatl||

    Ron Paul would totally be Lord Raiden.

  • Drax the Destroyer||

    Yeah...that's definitely more accurate. Its been years since I've got my ass kicked at the Kombat. Apparently, the newest iteration is pretty damn good.

  • Mensan||

    Yeah, it's pretty good. I get my ass kicked at it online by foul-mounthed 12-year olds about once a week or so.

    It does have Freddy Krueger in it, so NetherRealm already did the combining of horror films and MK. I don't think Bok knew that though. He just dressed Newcular Titties as Jason and called it Mortal Kombat because he's stupid.

    Jesus.

  • invisible furry hand||

    Chip-Bot is now doing deliberate lameness, isn't he? He knows we'll bite and gets off on it.

  • JOhnny MAckson||

  • Baal||

    Even bots are critics now.

  • invisible furry hand||

    Anon-Bot to replace Chip-Bot! He can't do any worse

  • Alan Vanneman||

    Is this really the best use of the Koch's money?

  • rather||

    Someone has been watching "Field Of Dreams" a few too many times

  • rather||

    And not farting in enough jars.

  • Joe M||

    I just... huh?

  • Dekedin||

    Idea for a video game comic:
    Ron Paul=Dovahkiin
    Obama=Alduin
    Neocons=Thalmor
    GOP=Empire

    I was going to say libertarians were Stormcloaks, but then people might think we're racists. I guess unions are Stormcloaks because of protectionism and anti-globalism.

  • The Art-P.O.G.||

    I do like the "Splatterhouse" reference.

  • Chip Bok||

    The what?

  • ||

    Where's Ron Paul?

  • ||

    This is a Serious comic! Only serious candadites need appear!

  • Jeff||

    Candadite = a Canadian catamite?

  • Rich||

    Paul is known for not attacking Romney. I applaud Chip for his accuracy and clever portrayal.

  • Joe M||

    Yeah, but Santorum isn't really attacking Romney much either. Should've been Perry instead.

  • ||

    He could have drawn Perry as "Agent P" as well.

  • Leon Panetta||

    I'm warning you about the "P" stuff.

  • ||

    Now I'm gonna have that song stuck in my head all day.

  • Night Elf Mohawk||

    Semi-aquatic, egg-laying mammal of action?

  • ||

    Stop!!!

  • ||

    Doofenschmirtz Evil Incorporaaaateeeeeeed!

  • db||

    Santorum and Gingrich should be depicted as zombies. Mitt gets bitten and Paul shows up with a baseball bat and a sawed off shotgun to save the world.

  • annonymous commenter some guy||

    "Paul shows up with a baseball bat and a sawed off shotgun to save the world."

    Sounds like an excellent campaign poster!

  • ||

    Shop smart, shop S Mart.

  • Bok Sux||

    So this is Field of Dreams and Newt is Mitt's father?

  • Lord Humungus||

    what does one see when looking in the Mitt mirror?

  • Ska||

    Hopefully they don't see Santorum behind them.

  • ||

    Santorum is He Who Fingers His Asshole Behind The Rows.

  • ||

  • Apatheist||

    The guy with the long hair looks like a total badass.

  • ||

    Wook at dems cute widdle feets! They're like real-life hobbits.

  • ||

    Looks like some of the Dragon Ball Z characters playing some ball.

  • Terr||

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Sparky||

    What is this I don't even

  • sarcasmic||

    Needs more labels.

  • Rich||

    Well, perhaps "The Republican Field".

  • wtf||

    How much money does Reason waste on these cartoon?

  • Orrie Goner||

    Don't you get it? Chip pays Reason.

  • ||

    Yeah, this is what I always thought. Like a self-described artist pays a studio to display their work in the hopes that someone will commission them. Bok is just doing the same, but online.

  • wtf||

    pretty sure reason pays a subscription fee to bok.

  • ||

    Pretty sure the batteries in your Sarcasmometer need to be replaced.

  • Johncasmic Brooksloop||

    Pretty sure sarcasm is the lowest form of speech.

  • Nuh uh!||

  • invisible furry hand||

    Inspired by Sloopy's generosity above and Urkobold's Monkey Tuesday, I offer this

  • ||

    Needs more labels.

  • Mr Whipple||

    [and] brackets [EMPIRE]

  • Johncasmic Brooksloop||

    Funny every time!

  • Spoonman.||

    Can't you at least get Lucy or Tim to add alt-text so something funny is on this page?

  • F Hart||

    Holy shit! Is it Friday already? Fuck me.

  • ||

    To the Memory Hole!

  • Ice Nine||

    Santorum, Newt and Mitt are in the GOP? Who knew?

  • Yet Another Dave||

    I gotta say, I think a lot of you are pretty mean toward Bok's cartoons each week ... except for this week. That one is pretty lame. Where's Ron Paul? What's with the Field of Dreams/Friday the 13th stuff, when it's Mortal Kombat?

  • Almanian||

    Bok is so meta that he speaks only to The Few Who Understand.

    Party on, Chip

  • Jay S||

    Why does Zombie Nixon have 'Santorum' written on his suit coat?

  • Thorbie||

    I think you're talking about Joe Biden.

  • ||

    Santorum looks like he's trying to "be veewwwy qwiet. He's hunting wabbits", which is pointless, because, that weird white haired Dracula from the 1992 Coppola movie, who BTW, has REALLY let himself go, is running a chainsaw. Apparently, the power tool was required to cut a wide enough hole for his fat ass.

  • ||

    Both timely and accurate...in some alternate past in which Ron Paul did not exist.

  • LA Liberty||

    I'm assuming this is an animated gif and it just hasn't gotten to the funny frame yet...

  • Dylboz||

    Uh... shouldn't that sign say "SC," not "NH?"

  • Thorbie||

    What?

    "Field of Dreams 2: the Friday the 13th, Newt Chainsaw Massacre (with Santorum)."

    Mine's funnier.

  • Dude!||

    I agree. Not a lot funnier, but better drawn and in color.
