I don't know what this is, but because it's a Delonas I suspect it's equal parts bat and shit.

it might not be funny, but i sincerely doubt that they misunderstood the metaphor

jason waterfalls (gbx), Friday, 19 May 2017 15:07 (four years ago) link

the funniest part of course is that he did the cartoon, put the poster of trump with 'open season', put the witches and gave them shotguns, and then thought about his audience for a second, and wrote TRUMP HUNT in big letters, just in case

Roberto Spiralli, Friday, 19 May 2017 15:10 (four years ago) link

political cartoons are maybe the single worst medium with regard to "show don't tell." the overwhelming majority, whatever their politics, would be massively improved by an editor nixing some number of written labels. also a high ratio of speech balloons contorting into overworded messes to explain the background and then convey the joke, which to other humorists is usually a sign that the joke isn't going to work.

I understand far more of those references than I am at all comfortable with.

New Ben Garrison today. Am enjoying how he seems to be having a breakdown in tandem with Trump.

He does realize that Trump is 70, right?

Occasionally I wonder, when the WP comes up, whether Jeff Bezos is not in fact a more malign or potentially more malign figure than Trump, taking a broad view. But I guess that isn't the conversation Ben Garrison is interested in having.

I'm sort of grimly fascinated by Ben Garrison. How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA? What's he going to do when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates? Is there a point where he would be disillusioned? What then?

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:41 (four years ago) link

He's also written a long article entitled "Advice for Aspiring Cartoonists" in case anyone wants to follow in his footsteps.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:45 (four years ago) link

when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates it will be because of the sinister machinations of the shadowy elite made up of the Republican establishment the Deep State and the Rothschilds

soref, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:46 (four years ago) link

the media has its golden goose so the "project" (whatever that is) disintegrating not likely to happen. he could be impeached and exiled from the country and we will still hear about every single dumb thing he tweets for the rest of his and our livee.

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Wednesday, 31 May 2017 21:15 (four years ago) link

impeachment or resignation or criminal charges of some sort is the disintegration I'm talking about, sorry if you would like that phrased differently.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 21:29 (four years ago) link

"How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA?"

this is trump's base generally; hence the focus on the evil media and derp state machinations to explain why having trump in charge isn't magically fulfilling all their dreams and changing the entire system.

﴿→ ☺ (Doctor Casino), Wednesday, 31 May 2017 21:34 (four years ago) link

Not sure if "derp state" is a typo or not, but I like it.

Trump had the conspiracy theorist types in his pocket from the get-go; had assumed that if he were ever to win he'd lose them instantly, like they'd have to think "welp, he's a lizard person/bilderberg stooge/whatever now". But the combative nature of his presidency, the fact that it always looks just about to fall apart, has made it so you can now maintain wake up sheeple cred while repping for the most powerful man in the United States.

Bit of a rubbish one this week, but just look at the detail on Trump's pecs, the biceps, the detail around the crotch, the big, manly hands. Phoar.

This will almost certainly end in a depiction of Trump simultaneously eviscerating an enemy and tenderly fucking the cartoonist.

carpet_kaiser, Wednesday, 21 June 2017 17:35 (four years ago) link

looks more like Loretta imo

soref, Wednesday, 21 June 2017 17:41 (four years ago) link

It's relevant because America's relationship with Trump is much like Leroy and Loretta's marriage. Trump is drunk again at a party and dancing with a floozy while wearing a lampshade. Loretta is spending Leroy's payceck at the department store again.

I'm not sure which one is which here, but it makes sense if you think about it.

i camped by a river all weekend in rural illinois, after camping on a river the previous weekend in covid-ville, missouri, near the ozarks. i overheard many dumb things on these rivers, many violent arguments between friends and family, and a shit-ton of "woke" jokes that always seemed to come up whenever our group floated by their party

Z_TBD (Karl Malone), Sunday, 1 August 2021 19:49 (four months ago) link

their senses of humor are the worst. that cartoon above would make them shit their pants. but hey, when you're in the river

Z_TBD (Karl Malone), Sunday, 1 August 2021 19:49 (four months ago) link

it also didn't do any good for my attempt to keep in mind that many of the people who don't get vaccinated have lots of good reasons for it and may be easily convinced with the right resources. that is true. but on rivers in the middle of nowhere, it is fucking hateful morons, floating around and shitting on themsevles

The reaction of the great mass of US residents in the weeks immediately after 9/11 made me feel more estranged from my country than the Vietnam War did. Those cartoons were strangely moderate compared to the nation's massive and instantaneous lurch into bloodlust.
