A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
as i am very very busy fine tuning the final issue i have asked a couple of people to fill in for me here so you all get your twice a week fix of angry acerbic musings. first up is the charming and delightful Steve Vincent of Angry Drunk Graphics. Steve is the kingpin of underground comics...having published, help get published and all around promoted and continues to promote people who would otherwise never get seen by the likes of you or I. his Spastic Colon series of mini comics are HIGH recommends as long as you are not skittish. As many of you know i generally don't associate with, acknowledge as piers, or most importantly hang out with fellow comic book pros at and after cons...Steve is one of the good ones though and i call him a friend and have even shared a few adult beverages with him...not shared exactly, we each had our own straw. in any case please give him all the respect and courtesy you afford me...he's a guest in own humble home/website...(i.e. let him have it with both barrels if you disagree, or pat him on the back if he speaks the truth)
anyway Doug asked me to write a blog this week as he is undoubtedly busy
drawing the same page over and over again because one of the background
characters in the 5th panel has a pinky that is slightly
larger than the index fingers or some inane thing like that.
here it is, I read a few of his blogs, each one was about something or
other that pissed him off.
Michael Jackson, Farrah Faucet, Ed
McMahon and Billy Mays recently died I’ve been in pretty good
spirits. I can’t believe that four useless nothings who at one time or
another have totally annoyed me have left the planet. I’ve been
practically farting rainbows for the last two weeks, I’m so happy.
decide to watch TV, there has to be something happening in the world
besides the death of some pedophile popstar (hero) that will annoy me
and that I can focus on long enough to write a blog befitting of
there it was: a short news piece on midgets. It seems a few of
God’s little Ewoks have had it up to here (hand slightly higher than
my knee) with the term Midget. They find it offensive and they want the
word banned from the English language.
The reporter goes on to relay the story to his viewers, but instead of
saying the word “midget” he says “the M word”. As in “these
little people want the “M” word removed from the dictionary”.
don’t think of myself better than any group of people, I’m sure that
most people can do at least one thing better than me, and I can probably
do at least one thing better than most people. But if you are the
kind of person who takes offense from a sound, chances are I am superior
will not use the term “__ word” M,N,F or any other
stupid letter in front of the word “word” is ridiculous. If I
go up to a gay guy on the street and say “Hey you F-word, you suck!”
and he gets less offended from that than if I had actually said the word
“Faggot”, he is a moron and should be heckled. The fact that the
word only offended these munchkins when it was said in English but not
in some other language was insane. If some guy from a tribal country in
Africa called you “midget” but instead of the English word midget
they say their word for midget, possibly something like “mm click mm
pop click mow” that probably wouldn’t hurt their feelings at
all. You know why? Because it is a freaking sound, just like the
English word “midget”.
that about wraps up my blog.
see Doug in San Diego July 23-26 and
grab a copy of Arsenic Lullaby Omega.
stop by AngryDrunkGraphics.com
and pick up “Spaztic Colon Rides Again” by me.
