A Funny Book

Attention Jazz Pickles: Here is a book of cartoons that I think you’ll dig, but it isn’t mine.

These guys call themselves Mustard and Baloney, and I like their work so much I wrote a foreword for their first book of cartoons. The gags are funny, the art is spectacular.

Below are a couple of my favorites from the book. Check it out here and buy a copy or twelve. “Mustard” is blogging there, too, in case you don’t have enough ways to waste time while you should be working.color_0206_fries color_0037_hunter

P.S. I’m not making a penny on these sales, I’m only doing this because I think these guys’ work deserves to be seen.

Casual Probing Racism Comb-over

I moved from NYC to LA a few years ago and have become even more keenly aware of the differences in their cultures than I was when I was only visiting here. Life in California is generally so much more relaxed than in NYC, which isn’t surprising, but the effect it has on people is glorious. The average person on the street––behind a counter or reception desk, answering a phone call for a business, driving a bus, etc.––is friendlier by a factor of 6.3 (by my unofficial calculations) than their East Coast counterparts. I love that about the West. Thinking along this line, I couldn’t help imagining the clash between how things are done in offices in the east compared to the west.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This alien gag resulted from the fact that the traditional extraterrestrial image that people claim to have been abducted frequently settle on is always without a nose. At most, they have a couple of nostrils. Like Michael Jackson.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, today’s cartoon is another about the Old West ––a favorite theme of mine. With only a few exceptions, Hollywood gave Indians a pretty bad rap for the better part of the 20th century. Most of what the average person (probably anywhere in the world) knows about the Americas’ indigenous people is from Hollywood, and SO much of it is utterly inaccurate. I’m reading a fascinating book right now called “1491,” which is about what the Americas were like up until the villainous Columbus began the onslaught of European invaders. It wasn’t at all like you’ve been led to believe. I highly recommend this book for history buffs or Native Americans who are interested in what the latest archeological information tells us about pre-European America, both north and south.
