Easyriders Magazine Cartoon

Here's a drawing from the latest October 2008 issue. Just a one-column.
I always liked this cartoon . . the pollsters always have a question that goes something like this . . . especially when it's election time.

Eating on the cheap

I like diners, hash houses, truck stop eateries, hot dog stands, ( I bring my own jalapenos, just kidding ).

Harvard Business Review Cartoon

This drawing appears on page 91 of the new September issue of this prestigious magazine . . they devoted a half page to it and it really does justice to the sketch.

I always enjoyed the full-page cartoons they USED to do in The New Yorker and of course you still see in Playboy. Actually, as for the New Yorker, there isn't as much need for they would not be appreciated to print a huge cartoon of so many ugly drawings they use now . . in fact, many of the new wave of cartoonists should have their work printed even smaller, as far as many people are concerned. SIZE in this case matters, because it's a visual thing . . remember, many of these ugly, amateurish drawings are produced by WRITERS attempting to draw.

In my opinion, writers should write, and continue to hone their skill.
cartoonists should cartoon and continue to hone THEIR skills to become as good as they can be. The same for nuclear scientists, shoemakers, shirtmakers, skiers, skaters.

Of course it's okay to try your hand in other fields that interest you, but, man, once you see that you're wasting your time, MOVE ON . .
for God's sake . . there is nothing wrong with failing at something new .
At least you TRIED . . Now get the HELL out of the way . . You wonder, is it the fault of this poor sap which keeps producing CRAP or is it the fault of the EDITORS buying and publishing this CRAP ?

No need to mention names . . as George Carlin used to say . . " You ugly people know who you are ! "

Harvard Business Review Cartoon

This drawing appears in the September issue on page 22 of the magazine. It's in a regular feature called " Strategic Humor ".

The editors will choose cartoons which are related to a book which they are reviewing. In this case, the book is titled " How to write a business plan " by William A. Sahlman. Teresa Burns Parkhurst and Rod Rossi are also featured cartoonists.

Cartoon of the Month

This makes you wonder . . . if it shouldn't also be fair if MEN get 72 virgins upon Martyrship ( is that a word ? ) that a DOG Martyring himself ALSO automatically qualifies for the 72 virgin bitches reward . . . and another thing, there HAVE been Women suicide/homicide bombers . . . but I never hear anything from THEM anxious to meet 72 Virgin Men ?! More importantly . . we could go on . . and on and on on this subject.

Three Cartoon Editors

These are the 3 mystery editors who are responsible for choosing the final few cartoons out of thousands that pour in every week over the transom that are picked unanimously and which end up appearing in this famous magazine week after week after week.

The leak is out . . this is the first picture that will finally quell the rumors . . who are these men ? Larry, Curly and Mo ? What about Shemp ?

The names will remain silent till we check this unnamed and unsubstantiated crap.
