Bearman Cartoon: Cash for Caulkers

I am not going to go into the entire explanation of this because my better half said she didn’t get it until I explained it to her.  I want to know if it makes sense as is without an explanation.  Anyone??

The only reference I will give is for all my non US visitors and non news reading US visitors is to define what Cash for Caulkers means.  It is a new government funded program.  Essentially it gives on the spot rebate for people who buy energy saving equipment for their homes.


Ok so some get it and some don’t.  Here is the background.  The wife says that I tend not to pronounce the “L” in certain words yet I swear I say it but it comes out so fast that she misses it.  Case in point “Cole Slaw” she claims I say “Co Slaw”.  So as this new government program came out, many newscasters have been rolling fast over their “L” too.  So indeed it sounds like they are saying “Cockers” versus “Caulkers”.  An industrious hooker might want to take advantage of the situation claiming that as a professional service.

HOWEVER, Jill’s husband, The York’s simple explanation that she simply misunderstood it as “Cash for Call Girls” is even better so I am going with that from now on in my explanation.

Hey what do you want from a Hack Cartoonist?  But even if it sucks, I am going to get a nice search engine life from those looking for Hookers.

    There are a ton of these “Cash for (insert anything here)” in Florida. I wish they would switch it to something more entertaining like “Pennies for Parrots”

  2. WriterDood says:

    Dollars for Dingos!

  3. jill says:

    I think I’m with your better half on this one. 🙂

    • Bearman says:

      I’ll explain tomorrow unless someone else comes out with it. Maybe it is a guy thing.

      • Jill says:

        Okay, hubby just explained. “Call Girls”. I was thinking “hookers” but I never thought call girls. It’s definitely a guy thing!

        • Bearman says:

          “Call Girls” hmmm that is an even better way than I was originally thinking. haha

          Say the phrase “Cash for Caulkers” 5 times really fast.

        • Tony says:

          OK now I get it, thanks Jill, I was thinking hookers too but it didn’t rhyme with Caulkers very well. Cash for Dingoes is good.
          Cash for Flat Cardboard people maybe????

  4. Hahaha … can she at least write-off any bail expenses from the past fiscal year?!

  5. jynksie says:

    Well, since my mind LIVES in the gutter, I was with you all the way through!! You so naughty! *LMAO*

  6. Nef says:

    Awww… I feel dejected and separated from the Felowship of the Guys… I guess I’ll go ask my wife to explain it to me.

    EDIT: Ah, NOW I get it…

  7. Dan says:

    Yeah, no explanation necessary.

  8. susispice says:

    bahahaha i get it, we have lots of those rebates in Australia.. one in particular just backfired big time!

    i think its funny… hehe

  9. Friggin Loon says:

    OK, so I was thinking she was either a hooker / call girl or it’s some new fandangled word for blowjob!!!

  10. FJ says:

    Haha, you shouldn’t make fun of hookers…they’ve had enough poked at them already.

  11. David says:

    I was thinking Cash for Call Girls myself. BTW, what every happened to Deelite? “Groove is in the heeeeaaarrt…”

    • Bearman says:

      I meant Cash for Call Girls..haha. What did happen to them. They were hot with that song. Same goes for Aqua. Bring them both back.

  12. Jill says:

    aah…so you liked hubby’s take on it! i’ll let him know. we did try out the 5 times fast and we did get cockers, but is that even a word?

    • Bearman says:

      haha. I can see the two of you sitting down across from each other doing that. Too Funny. Don’t worry if it is a word. It is now. I am off to the slang dictionary to input

      Cocker – Someone who gives blowjobs (many times for a fee)

  13. lisleman says:

    I had to come over because of your comment on Just Jill’s picture blog.
    You wrote something about the Red Barn chain. That fast food place was my first IRS recognized job. Did you happen to work at one?

    • Bearman says:

      No…just ate at one. Before McDonalds came to my neighborhood that location had a Red Barn. They went out of business and some individual bought it and not to get in trouble by using the same name, he painted the roof blue and called it Blue Barn.

      Glad to have you visit.

  14. I love your explanation more than anything else. Lol

  15. jammer5 says:

    Hmmm, has the Bearman invented a new slang term? Caulkers: Individuals who do strange things with caulks.

  16. George says:

    I got this joke/cartoon immediately, but then again, I have a very filthy mind anyway. 🙂

  17. Tracy says:

    Ugh, I read it as “cockers” but thought it meant “call girls”. I guess you were right on both counts?

  18. DadaHyena says:

    Nice…wear can you get a purple wig like that?

  19. nursemyra says:

    I’m still getting over finding out that you have a wife….. 😉

  20. Don Mills says:

    Deelite? Groove is in the heart bearman.

    • Bearman says:

      Look at Don Mills sporting out the 80’s tune.

      • Don Mills says:

        It’s not widely known but the first version of that song was actually on a rare Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra album for 1931.

        • Bearman says:

          Damn you and your wild goose chases. I had to look it up and you fooled me. But interesting enough both Whiteman and Deelite were proponents of using a slide whistle in their popular songs.
