Ice Bucket Challenge

Ice Bucked Challenge Lice Bearman Cartoons

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 (

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

    I saw a blurb stating the IBC had already raised more than 40 million dollars – so way beyond what anyone could have imagined. (it was on facebook, so take with a grain of salt)

    Bugs… ick to the tenth degree! [shudders]

    I do the ice bucket challenge every year… but we call it the polar plunge. Ocean swim in January for charity. My nipples remain blue til March! [smirk]

  5. Vas says:

    YES!!! This is hilarious and awesome.

  6. Nate Fakes says:

    Lice bucket would be much more entertaining!

  7. Comedy Plus says:

    I’d get a hearing aide too. Good grief.

    I have heard a lot about all the wasting of water too. We are in a severe drought in California.

    My mother died of ALS so I’m very pro anything that will raise awareness to this horrific disease.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

    Taking the Challenge from a “AHHHHHHH” to a “EWWWWWWW”! That animated lice is cringe-worthy! I’m with you on your “so what” comment. As long as people keep the Challenge alive, the chances that this will make a difference go up.

  9. Julian says:

    Way to get my skin crawling with the animated bug!

  10. G.B. Miller says:

    Ewww is definitely on the money. However, in regards to the actual challenge, I read somewhere that a particular Archdiocese was actually putting the kibosh on it because they were under the believe that improper stem cell research was being done.

  11. Bill Murphy says:

    Oh man Bearman, I couldn’t keep the image of that one bug crawling over your comic on my screen while reading your blog! 😀

  12. The challenge that keeps on giving!

  13. Gruhn says:

    This should raise a lot of money for Lyme disease research.

  14. Binky says:

    Lice are really just friendly little fellows who want to be close to you. That’s you, not me.

  15. Perk says:

    When you think about it, the Lice Bucket Challenge would probably have spread even faster. Hilarious comic, Bearman!

  16. Tony McGurk says:

    The Lice Bucket Challenge should raise a lot of money for nits control research. That unexpected crawling louse gave me a fright when it suddenly appeared. Nice touch. or should I say Lice touch.
    I went to Google to look up the ice bucket challenge & your post came up #7 on the search results list

  17. Red Dwyer says:

    For fear of being repetitious… Eww.

    I am glad it is getting exposure. I certainly hope at least half of the people popping up videos are donating something.

  18. benzeknees says:

    I think it’s more important to get the fund raising boosted than care about how you do it! If people can have fun & raise money at the same time, what is wrong with that?

  19. David Hurley says:

    That’s one challenge I won’t be taking, I’ll donate to the research though. The animation is a nice added touch, Bearman.

  20. Chris K says:

    Whoa that bug crawling across the screen was creepy. Awesome how you did that!

  21. frigginloon says:

    I think I had the lice bucket challenge when I was 8 🙁


  1. […] Bearman saw what I did in #5. Overall, Diving Bell was the favorite. It was the one which makes me long for the ocean. […]
