I’m pretty happy with my hamster wheel. It’s the day after I drew it and looking at it again, hey….it doesn’t suck. I google imaged hamster wheels like crazy. I saw a lot of hamsters. A couple of people in the office said nice things…and one person made a comment about Barney Frank and hamsters which was probably innapropriate…but hey, the toon works.
I would say "Oliphant is in trouble again", but he’s Pat Oliphant and he’s never in trouble. But he has pissed off a lot of people during his career and this week it’s the Anti-Defamation League. I’ve seen cartoons of his before that did seem pretty racist, but not the one upsetting people this week. It’s a strong cartoon which uses images the Anti-Defamation League thinks should never be used…but that doesn’t make it hate.
I was watching The Office once and someone pooped in Steve Carrell’s office. He called it a "hate crime"…one of his employees says it’s not a hate crime…and Carrell screams "well I hated it". Kind of the same thing here. Someone pooped on Israel and the Anti-Defamation League hated it…but it’s not a hate crime.
The Daily Cartoonist reports the news. This weird blog scrutinizes the bejezuz out of the cartoon.
I have joined twitter and now I’m as geeky as the rest of you. OK, yeah, I know…I’ve always been geeky. My profile is at http://twitter.com/clay335.
