So my Ice Bucket Challenge cartoon is really the Ice Bucket Challenged Cartoon. Or better, the Lice Bucket Challenge. Poor Joe didn’t quite hear correctly when he was given the Ice Bucket Challenge. He heard lice and now finally realizes it is time for a hearing aid.
Figured I would add little live lice to the mix for your enjoyment.
For the uninformed (and I don’t know how you could be), The Ice Bucket Challenge was started by a 26 year old Florida man and it has since spread from there. Celebrities, Sports figures and every day people have gotten into the mix all to raise awareness and money for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) better known in the United States as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. It is a degenerative disease that affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord essentially shutting down mobility and ultimately paralysis and death. For better info than I can give or to donate go to the ALS Assocation (www.alsa.org).
I have seen a few naysayers online complaining that vast numbers of people are just doing the challenge to have fun with the challenge and aren’t spreading the message about ALS or even know what it is. I say so what. This is the biggest fundraising effort of this organization and more people are now aware of it than ever before. So go ahead and dump your head with ice water. AND the first person to take up the challenge of a Lice Bucket Challenge, I will donate $100 in honor of you..haha
