For a guy who likes to expose other people’s over-use of cliches, this is my third Olympic analogy in the past few weeks. I have used podiums twice and now this hurdle thing…and why did I make it plural but only drew one hurdle? I just now caught that. My promise to you is that I maybe possibly will not draw any more Olympic analogies before the end of the week. But since we’re on the subject of analogies, Clay Bennett down in Chattanooga (spelled correctly? I don’t care) drew some really nice hurdles (plural!).
About the HOAs…if you sign an agreement with a butt-head organization with rules you don’t like…don’t run to the media crying about how they’re making you live up to what you promised to do. Cry babies.
Mr. Ed Hall, I don’t need a Google Alert to come read your blog. You draw nice cartoons and naked women. Who needs a Google Alert for that? I’m glad you’ve taken to my dog-rule but stop blogging about it. We don’t need the entire editorial cartooning community in on our gold mine of a secret that I so graciously gave to you over a couple of Boddington’s in China Town.
About that Google Alert thing: It’s not because I’m narcissistic or anything like that. It’s just a way I can find out if one of my cartoons has been stolen by some anti-abortion fanatic. See what I did there? I didn’t mention the fanatic’s name just in case she’s googling herself. But at least she thought one of my cartoons was a "hoot".
