Without (Much) Commentary

Nice one, MIT.

Someone remind me of this the next time I catch some boob complaining about "those stupid magnets" that just "advertise Rethuglican hypocrisy" and "don't really mean anything" and may even actually be "fucking evil."

Yes, that's what's wrong with this country. Magnets.

No, no, NO, man. You're way off-message.

Magnets. The problem is all those stupid magnets.

You're right. I'll go throw an egg at the closest warmongermobile in the parking lot.

Why does the artist think every body part, human or otherwise, is packed with delicious ziti?

I wonder if there's some "Duct Tape of Healing" to fix up the damage done by the omnipresent "Scissors of Justice."

I'm just waiting for the first rainbow-hued "Support Marriage Equality" ribbons to show up. Then I'll know civil war has started.

I hereby nominate scissors as "The Most Overused Metaphor in Political Cartoons."

Seriously, is it too much to ask for some variation in cutting implements?

The Pinking Shears of the Proletariot? The Shiv of Freedom?

The many-bladed lawnmower of the Oppressor?

Seriously though, that cartoon is soooo sixties. I remember seeing examples of stuff like that from the sixties when we were studying the 60s in school. And that "pigs" meme is pretty old and busted. Find another animal to insult.

What I want to know is, "Why is everyone else always fucking Evil?"

And is it any fun?

One of these days I'll catch one of these fads while it's still hot.

I agree. What's really wrong with this country are the "support the troops" magnets (not to mention the bumper stickers, of course). But mostly it's the magnets.

Excuse me, I need to go out and buy some more.
