Olympic Fun ‘n Games

It's all about harmony and freedom

Olympic Fun 'n Games

Well, with all the talk and press coverage on the Beijing Olympics, the scandal, the lack of freedom, the nationalism, the pollution, the cheating and general corporate whoring, I couldn’t resist poking some fun at the “games.”

And since China just loves to lie to everyone, and spy on them too, they need a little comeuppance, even if it by little old me.

I wish I had posted this cartoon sooner, but normal life got in the way of cartooning and the next thing you know, a month goes by. Oh well, as long as it’s out there.

I really should put some tracking code in my pages to see who actually visits my comic. Maybe I am turning Communist Chinese. No wait, I have some scruples and a sense of humor, so I can’t be a party member.

GOP v. Dems v. Jesse Jackson

You know, after I saw Jesse Jackson make his oh-so classy comment on TV, I knew I had great material to work with. It’s just another example of reality being stranger than fiction. But in politics, reality is much stranger than any acid trip.

Jesse is a bitter man, who isn’t as relevant as he once was. He’s just a good inflammatory TV personality to have on, sort of like Tony Randall on Letterman, just much more insane. So, why not be outrageous. He has been his whole career. And why stop now.

I also felt that McCain could use some press, any press. Poor guy, he campaigns like a son-of-a-B and Obama gets all the press. Sure, he’s 72 and that’s all people can focus on, but cut him some slack. Although he shouldn’t admit out loud he doesn’t know how to use the internet. Not a good idea in this media-driven age.

One last note, this comic would have gone up sooner, but family natters took precedence, so it was delayed by a good week or so. I’ll try and get back in the saddle again soon.

Big Oil and The Hostage

The metaphor of the gun was just too good to be true

The metaphor of the gun was just too good to be true

You know how everything is getting more and more expensive and we keep getting less and less for our money, well in this month’s installment of the comic I added one whole frame. Yes a fifth frame for the price of 4. If that isn’t a fair deal, I don’t know what is. Value for our readers.

The topic of thievery plays a strong role in this comic and this blog. Thieves stole my sleep, my youth, and worse, big oil thieves steal my hard earned cash every time I go shopping. Sure, if I were a good environmentalist, I’d say this is a spur to find alternative energy sources. And it is. But I still have to pay those scum every time I go to the gas station…

This one comic took a while to come out although the idea was there for quite some time. In fact the idea was there minutes after the last one was put up, but bless those little sleep-thieves I call dependents, they have been making my cartooning time quite limited. But they did give me time to work on the dialogue and it was a late night epiphany so to speak when the text for frame 4 with the metaphor for the image came into my head. I guess sleep deprivation at the hands of your kids can be considered creative destruction (of my brain cells).

And speaking of creative, I have created an online store with the help of my friend Rick. It’s at http://www.cafepress.com/stankotibor. The look is lame and that will improve with time, but you can by t-shirts and other swag with the comic on it. Please support me in my bid to free myself from the world of corporate slavery by buying and promoting this comic in t-shirt form.

Now that Jesse Jackson has given me fodder with anti-Obama “I’ll cut his nuts off” comment, I know I can begin on the next cartoon immediately.

The Big Switch

I am trying out a new blog engine, so here is the first attempt. We’ll see if it’s easier on the eyes and to manage. Sure, I may be doing because I am a slave to the latest web craze, but self-promotion is an art and I have no shortage of friends and family who can tell me how best to do it.

And I will. This comic is my outlet.

Big Oil Syas We’re Screwed

Been away for a couple of weeks, sick, dealing with the kids and work. But always thinking of the next cartoon.

Well, this idea came to me while at the gym. Watching the TV while on the stationary bike. And then comes a commercial with the CEO of ExxonMobil trying to polish his image. I laughed out loud even though I couldn’t hear the commercial as I was listening to Lewis Black on my iPod. That was funny. This commercial was verging on the absurd.
Stop lying to us!!! You rich son-of-a-B!! Just tell us we are screwed. Or let me tell it to you via the cartoon.

Enjoy this one, it gave me pleasure to vent this way.

Politics Anyone?

Getting a the Dem ticket to work together ain\'t easy

You know, this one sounded so much better in my head than when I read the final product. Somehow I lost it in translation from brain to page. Frustrating. But let’s be honest, Obama and Hillary are two mega egos. But if Hillary does accept the VP post, this will make Bill Clinton’ look like an id in a candy shop! He’ll try and screw anything that’s not nailed down in the white house.

More topically speaking, I think I need to go into the whole “price of gas” thing. There’s something brewing with the whole Rex Tillerson ad on CNN. He’s trying to come across as being caring. That just can’t be right…

I think I am on to something here…
