The Crabby Old Fart blog is written by the fictional, fabricated, imaginary great Donald Mills. He uses his remaining days on earth to lambast young people and their ways.
Just the other day he was complaining about the lack of romance among young people. To which I responded that obviously there was such little romance back in his day that the government had to create anti Venereal Disease PSA posters like this one.
His response was this:
Besides, I’m all for public service posters designed to scare the Hell out of young people.
You might consider putting your cartoonmanship to similar use. How about whipping up a poster on the dangers of falling while wearing ill-iftting trousers? Or of walking in front of a moving vehicle while playing Donkey Kong on your Iphone?
Better than his suggestions, I thought the best PSA I could give the world would be this one.
Visit at your own risk.
I’ve been reading some of your posts over at Don’s place, and thought I’d come by and see your cartoons. At first this one seemed to be a little disparaging to Don, but after looking through your cartoons, I gotta say you have some amazing talent! I wish I had the talent to draw like you do. I just have ideas.
Ideas are all you need. I am not one who believes you have to be a great toonist (personally I don’t think I am esp when I see all the talent around the internet). Ideas are more important. I can’t remember it off the top of my head but there is a very popular cartoon that just uses stick figures. So go for it.
Well, if you’re interested in going “halfsies”, I have some ideas for cartoon panels that involve the Amish. My words, your cartoons — we’ll be dangerous. Lots of untapped potential there, IMHO. *grin*
Deal…but if you like amish humor you need to visit the old farts blog (as opposed to the crabby old fart blog)
Went there and dropped your name. I guess Amish humor is far reaching, huh?
PS: haven’t seen my advertising campaign idea yet. I’m keeping that one under wraps for now….but it’s a goody!!!
I meant to say something about this amazing announcement over there at Crabby’s place, but forgot. What a resemblance! Great job Bear! I’m sure Don really appreciates the time and effort put into it. What about a troll or a bean or something like that, next? 😉
I’ll have to work on that one. A trolling bean.
Once again my many thanks Bearman. I think you’ve captured my intestinal fortitude, devlish good looks and judging nature quite well.
And I certainly do appreciate both the time and effort.
Anytime Don…now in exchange will you please stop calling the city when I wait a few extra days to mow my lawn.
Ooh crap, that was me Bearman sorry! Damn lazy friggin loon!
The PSA was fabulous, Bear. And look at how much appreciation Don has for you. I think his cardigan is about to burst with pride.
His cardigan or his depends…one of the two.
ah man…..great post! very cool of you bearman….Don deserves the accolades..!!
HA! Have you pitched this to the networks yet? 🙂
Yes but they said there weren’t interested in an updated Archie Bunker meets Bill Cosby sitcom.
btw, that comic is really good! i’m sure he will be most pleased….great job- forgot to mention….
He is blushing like a 1930’s school girl.
I just had a look at the crabbyoldfart site….. excelent! – going to have to subscribe to updates there too i think 😉
Great job with the panel
Just don’t make him a distraction from getting your work done. He has so many followers it can take hours to go through any single one of his posts.
I’m gonna subscribe to his blog now, thanks to you 🙂
Lol. Well – talk about some free publicity! Good work….now I have to go read his blog
Just read my warning to andy
I’ve run into the blog a few times before, and Don is hilarious. I love your cartoon of him, too. It’s dead on.
LOL… this is a great link and man, I totally dig that poster!
this is b.s.
there hasn’t been any sort of a PSA issued about me. i guess i’m still safe and recommended for all audiences in large doses!
I have done pro bono work for you…you just chose not to do anything with it. haha
You are brilliant. You even angled his follically abundant eyebrows perfectly.
…this makes the snuggy and matching slippers I got him seem a little anti-climactic.
ps. Don’t tell Don about the snuggy…he thinks I’m on a mission to eradicate them.
(probably because I told him that)
Don’s a class act. One of the blogs that makes blogging fun. Always enjoy it.
Oh, ya, bydaway . . yous ain’t
ugly,/strike> bad yousself 🙂

I hate when that happens.
You at least know how to do those crossouts and smiley.
Donald is the man, he sure tells it like it is
Two Old farts in the same post.
