The Cartoonist Studio Editorial Cartoon Contest continues and I made it to week THREE! Thanks to all for voting. Click the image above or here to go to the voting. You should do a search of “Bearman” and my cartoon will come up front and center and then vote. Some people were clicking the link and then accidentally voting on the first thing that popped up. Unfortunately no way to direct link to my cartoon. Again, as long as I stay in the contest, there will be two editorial cartoons a week to vote on – Mondays and Thursdays. Oh and you can vote multiple times in each round if you want (resets every six hours) until EOD Saturday.
Special shout out to Red at Momma’s Money Matters who has worked her butt off to get me votes from her friends/followers.
Today’s editorial cartoon is inspired by everyone’s favorite bus monitor, Karen Klein. Oh you haven’t seen the video of her getting bullied relentlessly by little shits? Here it is but be warned the language is harsh and your blood pressure may rise.
And the web reacted. Someone started a campaign on Indiegogo to raise $10,000 for Karen to be able to go on a vacation. As of today’s posting there is currently $664,398 donated. And Southwest Airlines offered to send her and 9 guests to Disneyland for a 3 day vacation. So of course the haters have to come out. Questions about whether as a bus monitor she was effective at her job. And more importantly, I predict you will now see this victim mentality that I ought to get compensated grossly for any wrong done to me. Hey Karen got hers, why can’t I get mine.
I also predict there will be some people that start staging sympathy videos in hopes of getting money. But I am a pessimist when it comes to people doing the right thing.
