Editorial Cartoon: California Wind Storm Caption Contest

Editorial Cartoon California Wind Storms Caption Contest

Today’s editorial cartoon started as usual with me reading about the terrible Wind Storms in California last week.  Of course nature was the cause but what if it were something else.  Thus began my problem.  There are so many choices for the cause of severe wind….

  • A Republican National Debate was in town.
  • The Friggin Loon visited California last week (for the uninformed she is reported to have terrible gas)
  • An A-list actor purporting to support the Occupy movement while reaming his/her accountant for not finding enough tax shelters/loopholes.

So do you like any of those?  Or come up with something to top it.  Let your creative juices flow…

  1. My guess is … that someone stuck a pin into Nancy Pelosi.

    I know very little about California. I heard that parts of it keep breaking off and falling into the Pacific Ocean. I heard that The King Elvis is still alive there somewhere. That it is always warm, and it is entirely populated by movie and TV stars and cartoonists.

    So my guess is… probably some butterfly* is screwing up somewhere.

    *(butterfly effect joke)

    I live in California, and this state is messed up big time. I’m not even going to go there with your question. The list would be a mile long and it would raise my blood pressure.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

    My guess is….George Ford of Addanac City started making audio-tapes of his long, drawn-out blog postings. That blowhard produces enough hot air to lose kites.

  5. Tony McGurk says:

    My guess is the Baked Beans Eating Contest from last weekend

    Congressional Farts are getting stronger and stronger

    Gee, some of us living in California like the place; maybe it’ll get better when all the in-state haters move to Arizona instead of trying to turn this state into Arizona.

    Anyway, I heard that the Breaking Dawn movie made the entire state of Utah hyperventilate and the ill wind had nowhere else to go.

    Or maybe they finally let some of the air out of the overinflated Silicon Valley startups.

    Or the entire Inland Valley areas had the bean crops ripen at the same time.

    Or maybe things in Mexico really DO suck that badly.

    Or the Hollywood campaign to censor the internet (SOPA & PIPA bills) finally got some blowback.

    And for the record, the difference between a Left Wing Wacko and Right Wing Wacko in California (and a lot of other places): A Left Wing Wacko gets a stupid law passed in his home town, a Right Wing Wacko gets a stupid law forced on the entire state.

    • Bearman says:

      Man I had a long response to this and it didn’t come through.

      Thanks for stopping by Craig, it seems you and I will get along great.

      Maybe Mexico does suck so bad (love that one) but then again given the economic conditions in CA, maybe the sucking noise is all the illegals rushing back to Mexico for a better life. haha

    • George says:

      Hey there, Craig! I’ve only been a transplant to California for a bit more than two years, but I’m lovin’ it out here. My wife (a life-long Inland Empress) wants to move to my home-state of VA, but I’m not budgin’ for anything. I think I’ll plant roots out here. 🙂

  8. MJ says:

    Fresh out of funny this week. Sorry.

  9. Friggin Loon says:

    It was silent, I didn’t think anyone would have noticed!!!!!

  10. Friggin Loon says:

    Wasn’t Charlie Sheen in town? You know, blow goes where ever he goes 🙄

  11. The Apocalypse. Stock up on bread and water…and bug spray. Don’t swarms of locust come next?

  12. DadaHyena says:

    When in doubt, go with the fart joke. Scatological humor is the first form of humor most any of us know (since we learn it at age three or four), so it reaches the audience at their very core.

    Plus farts is funny. Hee hyuck hyuck.

  13. nursemyra says:

    I vote for frigginloon

  14. G says:

    A spokesman for the all of the California Public Labor Unions was delivering the usual statement saying that the unions really do care about economic situation in California and really do want to help solve the problem.

    BTW, I wrote a post about you that will appear Wednesday, which was due to you being one of two people who were able to correctly identify the song that my post was connected to. 😀

    My guess is…. Bearman had one to many Burrito’s for lunch!


    …. Hollywoods balloon of self importance just deflated!


    …. Those winds were the last gasps of Herman Cains campaign!

  16. Bo Lumpkim says:

    I think it was the air being let out of Herman Cain’s campaign.
    Or it was caused by the collapse in the economy.
    Or it was all the people in Europe taking a deep breath at once because they won’t all go broke at one time.

    the japanese finaly perfected their typhoon machine D:

    god wants everyone to have that movie like hair swirl

    its from asking to manny questions about the weather instead of actually asking somthing insightfull

    my *sucky* idea’s 😀 and the explenation why i will never ever be able to make cartoons/comics 🙁

  18. Wait for it…
    wait for it…
    a high pressure trough? Because… that would be… crazy hilarious… right?!

  19. Who knew so many people want to talk about the weather. By the way – what caused the wind was …………………

  20. Mark Stokes says:

    That practical joker Stumbo the Giant did his infamous “pull my finger” joke.

  21. bschooled says:

    Like I always say, “When in doubt, blame Friggin Loon…”

    (Er, if Friggin Loon is reading this, I mean it as a compliment.)

  22. …God hates California.

  23. Brian Hagen says:

    Wind storms? I’ve been too worried about artists “letting their creative juices flow”!
