This cartoon was inspired by Sunday’s post regarding the article that said people who have sex or exercise infrequently are more prone to heart attacks. Of course in Sunday’s toon, I poke fun at the guy. But I am an equal opportunity offender so thought it was the ladies turn.
The one thing I constantly tell my wife in the years since we got married is:
Thank you for not giving up!
I mean how many women (and men) nab their significant other and after the “I do’s” just stop trying. Stop taking care of themselves, stop being interested in what the other has to say, and in the case above stop caring whether or not they will scare the crap out of their spouse by how they dress/look.
I worry for the future husband of this Bearmaniac. I mean if she is going for the mud mask look now on public video, heaven help the future Mr. Blunt Delivery.
Click here to see the video on her blog in full color. And while you are there, ask her why she doesn’t use the mud on her forehead or upper lip. She loves those questions.
This editorial cartoon was inspired by recent articles that infrequent sex or exercise can lead to an increased risk of heart attacks. If you aren’t getting enough and decide to engage in those activities, it could induce a heart attack.
Can you imagine the out of shape guys using this as their new pick up line. “C’mon baby, you don’t want me to die do you??”
Reminds me of a guy who would ask every woman in the bar if he could get her number whether or not he had a chance with any of them. When asked why, he said it was law of averages. 1 in 100 would say yes. I think that guy ended up being pretty good at sales.
So I hit my 1000th Twitter Follower a few weeks back. In twitter terms that really means I probably hit 200 legitimate followers once you dump out the pornbots and the “social media experts.”
As I noticed I was getting near, I decided to make a contest where I promised a caricature to the 1000th Twitter follower. Oh you aren’t following me on Twitter yet and missed out. Now whose fault is that? Follow me.
Anyway, I was happy to report that number 1000 is an actual person. And like 1/2 my readership outside the United States, resides in the UK. So congratulations Robin, you were number 1000.
Not only is Robin a real person but he is also somewhat of a philanthropist. He spends many waking hours involved in walks, marathons, and ebay auctions all to raise money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. Great Ormond is famous for being given the rights to the play Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. So check out Robin on Twitter and one his website, Twelveby12 and tell him I said hi.
Oh…and his caricature.
Up until this past weekend, some conservatives have been upset that the United States hasn’t been more proactive militarily with the issues in Libya. While I abhor the things Ghadafi is doing to his people, why does the responsibility to be the world police always rest on the United States.
Whenever there is military action needed around the world, the United States is always seen as the big bad aggressor in foreign affairs while the UN tends to get bound in ineffective resolutions. The US is blamed for interfering in affairs of other countries and blamed if they don’t . As my dad used to say “You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t”.
So for once, the U.S. has decided to take a back seat to the United Nations, fully supporting the efforts but not taking the lead. I, for one, support that tact. They have commited fully to the military operation of a no fly zone while allowing Britain and France to take the lead on the resolution.
Now I am sure I will get an earful from my Australian friends but let’s contrast this with the Australian foreign minister, Kevin Rudd. Like some American Conservatives, Rudd was blaming the G8 nations for inaction yet after the UN Resolution said that there would be no Australian military assistance (though he did pledge humanitarian aid).
The world doesn’t need any more armchair quarterbacks. (Ok except for me)
