March Madness 1939

Click for larger version

Yes this is a little late but what do you want?  I had to post the pig joke yesterday.  But today I catch up.

Here’s a little pictographic treat for everyone.  A bit of inspiration based on the now complete NCAA basketball hoopla known as March Madness and of course the bizarre day known as 420 that is almost famous as Hitler’s birthday.  Yeah… my mind is a strange place.

So what did the term March Madness mean 70 years ago in the year 1939?  Something quite a bit different than it does now I’d wager.

You have to hand it to the Nazis.  They may have been the scum of the universe but they sure could march.  My apologies to the websites that I snagged these pictures from.

Joke Day 04/20/09

Grinning pig

A farmer was worried that none of his pigs were getting pregnant. He called the local vet and asked what he should do if he wanted more pigs. The vet told him he should try artificial insemination.

The farmer, not wanting to appear stupid, answered “Okay,” and hung up the phone. Unclear on what the vet meant by artificial insemination, the farmer decided it must mean he had to impregnate the pigs himself, so he loaded all the pigs in his pickup and drove down to the woods and shagged them all.

The next day he called the vet again, and asked how would he know if the pigs were pregnant. The vet told him they would be lying down and rolling in the mud, but when he looked out the window not even one was lying down. So he loaded them up in his pickup again and drove them to the woods and shagged them all again.

To his dismay they were all standing the next morning. So, again he loads the pigs in his truck, drives them to the woods and shags them for the third time.

By the next morning the farmer is beat, so he asks his wife to hop out of bed and look out the window to see what the pigs are doing. She says “Well – that’s odd! They’re all in the truck and one of them is honking the horn”.

Izzard Gives Private Performance to Terror Victim

How freaking cool is that?  I’ve been a huge fan of Eddie Izzard for a long time now but that is just icing on the damn cake.  He is truly awesome.  Good on you, Mr. Izzard.

It’s nice to see somone doing something nice for a change….

Henry Rollins tonight

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

For those of you who can and desire to do so, Henry Rollins is live at the Pageant tonight in St. Louis, MO.  I would love to see him live but with the baby coming at any time, it’s just not gonna happen.  But for anyone else who can go, you should.  He’s smart, funny and not afraid to speak his mind about anything and everything.

If you do get to go, please leave a comment and let me know how it was.  I bet he’ll have lots to say on the recent elections and the state of the nation in general.

Comic update

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

On Monday, A Little Scary posted comic number 60.  Not a bad mile marker if I do say so myself.  At the end of the month I am shooting for another goal… well, two goals actually.

The first is that the last week of October will feature three comics on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to celebrate Halloween.  This is not going to be the new schedule for ALS but it is something I’ve been wanting to try to see if I can update on a more demanding schedule.  I think I can but with moving into a new house and our first baby due to be born around that same time I don’t want to make any commitments I can’t honor.

The second goal is a bit trickier.  ALS has, for the most part, been a pretty tame comic and I want to keep it that way.  There’ve been some bizarre or gross things from time to time because that’s just the kind of person I am.  I have never felt like I was above a fart or poop joke or anything like that.  I relish in the fact that the characters are who I want them to be and they have no shame in that.  And this brings me to that second goal.  The final comic of October will be posted on Halloween and it will be the most disturbing comic yet.  It’s bad enough that it may polarize my meager audience and I may lose a few readers over it.  I hope not, but with how people are nowadays you have to assume that someone will be offended.  I’m hoping people will be shocked but enjoy it for what it is.  I won’t say anything more about it than that.  Even if I lose every single reader over the comic it will have been worth it.  Because I think it’s funny and I am not ashamed of that.

That being said, make sure you tune in to A Little Scary today because I think today’s comic is particularly funny.  And if you are worried about your delicate sensibilities… well… maybe you should just skip the comic on Halloween.  You have been warned.
