The Newest Threat: Ass Bombs

CBS News goes in depth in this video about the ass-bombing of a Saudi Prince. Note that Al Qaeda even produced its own animation of the ass-bombing, which means, among other things, that Al Qaeda has its own animators, or maybe they outsource it to the same people who did the Airborne commercial. Ass-bombing is something we should be scared and worried about. Just like the containers of toothpaste and hair gel, anyone who attempts to board a plane with an ass could potentially be a Qaeda ass-bomber. Get used to having your ass subjected to heightened scrutiny when you fly, and not just by that creepy flight attendant. I would think it would be harder for Al Qaeda to recruit volunteers for an ass-bombing mission, but this guy seems awfully happy––for a guy with a pound of C4 and detonator up his ass. I wonder if they could work this into an episode of "24." Jack Bauer having to reach his hand into––oh, never mind.

This Week's Troubletown Cartoon: Intergenerational Health Care Battle


Entire School Misses Point of Keith Knight Cartoon

Goddamn it, I would kill to make the local news with Stan Boney in Slippery Rock! Keef has done it again. These kids should kill some time playing Offendo! Anyway, enjoy!

Airborne ad?

I was searching for Airborne's animated TV ad to see how well the Chinese laborers copied my style. Here's what I found. Different product I guess but it's pretty cute...until it turns nightmarish.

Hilarity at Value Voters Conference

This is a hilarious video of jerky reporters and curmudgeonly old farts squared off in battle against each other. Anybody who's ever played ball in the park across the street from cranky old Mr. Johnson and had him come out and yell at you to stop making so much noise can relate to this. These old farts are plenty peeved that this reported is interrupting their chance to hear Alan Keyes or Ralph Reed or some other "values" blowhard. On the other hand you've got this pompous blow-dried reporter from MSNBC who thinks that his little TV segment is god's gift to humanity, and that the world should just bend over backwards for him and his credentialed press organization.You can't help wanting to inflict some violence on him and the anchor lady back in the studio. My favorite part is when he says, "Please don't touch the microphone," as the seven-foot-tall senior citizen is about to cold cock him.

Million Moron March

New Left Media went there so that you didn't have to.

Jeez, the conservatives who send me hate mail are Einsteins compared to this bunch. I never gave them much credit.

Alert! New Troubletown T-shirt in our Store!

Here's a new T-shirt design from Pierre of Troubletown. It looks kind of distressed and a little off register––which makes it extra cool. You might need to get one today. Because this is how we cartoonists make our money these days, don't forget.

Orange County Produces a True Gem in Mike Duvall,

Orange County is the only place in the world that could've produced a guy like Mike Duvall. Watch the hilarious local TV broadcast of the California State Assemblyman using a committee hearing as an opportunity to give his fellow committee member all the lacsivious details of his lobbyist-screwing, into a hot mic. Kudos to channel 9's Dave Lopez for this moving report.

This Week's Troubletown Cartoon: Pardon My French


Last week I took a break from Troubletown and here I am back with a fresh one! Jeez, do you think I'll lose papers for this? I'll bet I do. You know, family newspapers. Oh well, sometimes you've just gotta let some expletives fly, y'know? Like this Van Jones incident, man it pisses me off that Obama would let Glenn Beck set the agenda for him on anything. I was just listening to Obama's indoctrination speech for school kids. He's suggesting that they wash their hands and read books. Boy, that's going to piss off the conservatives. You know there's communist fluoride in the water they'll be washing with. Here's an article on the top ten Obama conspiracy theories, including that he's going to require white men to get circumcised!

Troubletown Health Care Cartoon from 1994!


Okay, I'm a bad, lazy cartoonist this week. But I came across this health care cartoon from 1994 the other day and figured it might be fun to rerun it. We don't want to end up in the same place again in 2009, do we?
