Cthulu and friends!

Once in a while I get it into my head that I'm gonna write a children's book. Just for my own kid's entertainment, mind you. I'm not looking to be the next Jamie Lee Curtis. But then I start sketching out ideas, and I don't get too far before I realize that the harder I try to concoct a sunny, optimistic tale, what comes out just gets more and more... unsettling? Even I don't like to look at it:
"Holy shit, the eyes on this bunny grocer are freakin' me out" *crumple crumple toss*.

Y'know who I bet could relate to this? The folks who designed these playgrounds.

I'm Designed Only for Killing, so don't even think about it, mister

Head over to March MODOK Madness to check out my Aquapets-inspired contribution. Oh yeah- and a bunch of stuff by folks who can actually draw.

that's right, Edna

You may have run across this in your travels:

It kind of reminds me of, but out-weirds, Tex and Edna Boil from good ol' SCTV:

Now we've all had a good laugh and can go back to talking/thinking/reading about Governor Bareback Steamroller.

from the desk of Grizzly Dad

Memo to people who issue "severe weather" alerts:
We live in western New York State. An inch or two of snow from 4pm today to 8am Sunday is not a "winter storm". An inch or two of snow over 36 hours is called "snowing, some".
Take that "Winter Storm Warning" down, unbunch your panties, and issue a "It is snowing, some".

Scarf sniffers are total creeps

This guy's sketches might not make you laugh. Or, you might know from funny. Then you will laugh, 'til work's over.

Cleveland rocks. As long as you stay away from that glass pyramid.

I see where they've got the 2008 list of inductees into the "rock" and "roll" hall of fame, there. Madonna and John Mellencamp, eh? Hm. Two cougars in one year!
I know rock and roll is not a clear cut genre, but I for one don't think I'd classify anything Madonna's ever done as rock and roll. I mean, you wouldn't induct, say, Jackson Brown into a rock and roll hall of fame, would you? Maybe if there was a Adult Contemporary hall of fame or something, but certainly not rock and roll. Certainly you would never-
What's that? They WHAT? No.

Well, see you next year when they induct Mariah Carey and Tom Cochran.
