Funny pictures, because we say so

Well, it’s another lazy Sunday afternoon and we don’t feel like going anywhere, so we’re blessing you with an additional post. Here are some pictures that we’ve made and haven’t been able to use anywhere yet. Just sort of random stuff.

Edgar Guest and the Family Crest

Be our Guest, be our Guest, we’ll show our very best. You can put us to the test, we’re so much better than the rest.  Here’s a piece of artwork inspired by folksy rhymer Edgar Guest. We have no idea who the stick figure people are supposed. They just kind of evolved from our mouse clicks. We think they must have been inspired by Chris Ware.

Southwest is the Walmart of the Skies

We rather enjoy Jessica Frech‘s Youtube video satire of the people of Walmart. We’re not ashamed to say that we’ve shopped at Hell-Mart. If one is patient, the experience can be entertaining. Southwest Airlines also seems to attract the Great American Society’s best of breed. Here’s a picture of who-knows-what standing at the Salt Lake International Airport. If we had shot the picture, we would have waited for the chap to get off his cell phone and then asked him what the Fuck he was up to. Good grief. Does his wife know? We wonder if his employer is aware that he has expensed the pink corset.

Black Market Follies

Let’s see. What’s next. Oh, here’s one. It took a second to get it. We’re slow. Sorry.

Let's see if we get the story right. Greedy corporate dicks rape the moon of Pandora for Unobtainium. One of the corporations' leaders is Bruce Wayne, AKA The Batman. Wayne flies to Pandora where he discovers the indigenous people fighting to save their home. OK, we get it. But how the hell does Spider-man figure into this?

But how the hell does Spider-man figure into this?

Pig Pen

Some girls like a dirty boy. We’ve never met any, but that’s what we’ve heard. This is a panel from the early period of Charles Schultz’s Peanuts cartoons. We prefer those from this era over the later ones.

Total Recall before it Broke Bad

Actually, we haven’t seen it yet. The buzz fizzled and the movie was panned so we chose to do other things. Still, it’s probably time for a look-see. How bad can it be?

Yes, shame that. Oh, we’re such cads.

So, that’s it. Time to eat.
