The Cartoonist Studio Editorial Cartoon Contest continues and I made it to week NINE!! So I am almost done asking for votes. 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. 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 Tuesday.
A little humor for the week prompted today’s editorial cartoon. It seems actor William Shatner (Star Trek, TJ Hooker, Priceline Negotiator) has a little embarrassing moment with TSA agents at LAX. He was going on an international flight out of LAX and as he relates it, he didn’t want to be wearing anything binding…so he went to the airport in loose clothing and NO UNDERWEAR. Shatner, who had a hip replacement always sets the metal detector off and has to have extra security pat downs. Well it seems an inexperienced TSA agent got the “short stick” and was a little aggressive in his work causing Shatner’s proton torpedo to be visible to everyone in airport security.
See the video of Shatner relaying the experience to Craig Ferguson.
Couldn’t have happened to a better guy.
Oh I could think of a few.
Your TSA agent looks like he is enjoying his job far too much.
Usually it is the opposite.
Well, apparently the ham was enjoying it as well…
Did the TSA guy say “I’m giving it all she’s got Captain”
Mr Shatner should’ve kept his shields energised.
haha…why didn’t I think of that? Thanks for the vote
Couldn’t he have just had Scotty beam him up?
I was going to have him say that but it was too wordy as it was.
Go Bearmnan Go …..:)

You need to channel your offline silliness to the web haha
Shhh!! We don’t need the competition!
We need to up our game..ha
Poor Captain Kirk, womanizing in his early years now being manhandled in his golden years. Who would have thunk it.
The Karma followers? Haha
Voted excellent week nine! Very funny cartoon and video. :+) Thanks for the Monday laugh.
Thanks Starla and always appreciate the vote.
That is too funny. I only wish someone got that on video. It couldn’t have happened to a more funny guy.
His story in the video cracked me up
Me Too. I also read that in some states it is actually legal to go threw the line nude, because the intent isn’t to arouse someone. Isn’t that weird.?
Intent might not be there but in practice….
I think a guy could get away with it because women don’t tend to be aroused by naked men..haha
He was no help as usual
I’m not a Shatner fan so this is even funnier. Couldn’t happen to a better person. And…I wouldn’t have wanted to see this either.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Oh you would have haha
The TSA agent should never have crossed that final frontier!
Someone needs to throw in a TJHooker joke
I heard about that. Cool and topical comic! Shatner is always an entertaining interview.
Try to keep abreast of the butt of all jokes.
“Worlds are conquered, galaxies destroyed…but dropping your pants is dropping your pants.”
Interstellar Hernia Check.
thanks I didn’t hear about this. Wow the whole enterprise right there hovering.
I am better than the Friggen Loon for news of the weird..haha
Did it happen in OHIO? NO!!! 😉
You have that area covered…haha
William, can I call him that, would beat the crud out of the TSA personal for going there. I would never wish this on any celebrity except Alec Baldwin.
I could wish it on a few actresses I guess. But only if I was in attendance.
Sounds like a movie I found in the DVD player of my landlord’s deceased husband. I’m a dude and thought the cover of the CD was disturbing.
Me: Dear God, PORN!
Wife: Are you sure?
Me: Trust me, I know my por… uh, yes. Yes it is hunny. :-/
DVD , not CD…
See you are still flustered.
Excellent comic, Bearman! 🙂
Where’s Spock and his Vulcan nerve pinch when you really need him?
Probably that guy in the booth telling TSA to frisk Shatner
Captain Commando!!!! 😯
He had to one up Captain Underpants
Ream me up, Scotty…
Shatner is such an incredible self-promoter, no matter what the situation.
And if you don’t win after all the votes we’ve given you, we’re going to want restitution!
I’ll need a rest too.
His eyes say no but his belt says yes.
Or lack thereof
At least there’s no Force if you’re a Trekkie.
It’s a little relative
Hilarious! Super funny panel.
Thank you sir!
Seems like TJ Hooker needs a better hook-up at the airport.
You did a great job of capturing the smugness on Kirk’s grill. This was one of your best caricatures so far.
Really? Cuz I think it is so so. I struggled with this caricature. You would think he had a bunch to work with but he doesn’t
But it’s the simplicity of the design that captures it so well. Shatner looks so funny in real-life, but he’s actually a very plain-faced parson. You did good to take the subtle nuances in his demeanor and bring them to cartoon life.
So pat yourself on the back (or any of the other places you prefer when you’ve done well). 🙂
Thanks…I don’t have to do any patting anymore….that is the reason I got married.
Shat is the man!
Don’t say “shat” when we are talking about a naked man.
Was this negotiated through Priceline?
Probably Orbitz PR paid off the TSA
Now you might feel a little pinch and then a tickle. lol
Not as good as a little slap and tickle haha
I always tell the TSA if I get a prostate massage during my pat down, theres a tip and maybe even a date afterwards! [you’d think I was kidding]…if I get a feel me up and a tickle, its true love!
Honest story. About 10 years ago I was flying somewhere and they made me unbuckle my belt and hold it out. The guy ran the wand around my midsection and then actually put his fingers down the front of my waist band. I asked he was going to buy me dinner. He didn’t like that.
I knew the death of the Priceline Negotiator was a cover up… There he was, all lively, trying to flee the country…
They killed off the Negotiator? I missed that episode.
