Stop, Hey What’s That Sound?

“There is a key issue that we do not see eye to eye on and on this issue I refuse to back down. That is the issue of your brains and my desire to eat them because they are delicious and also BRAAAAAAAINS!”

David went to the Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear and took some pictures. Also, AMC’s The Walking Dead was great. In one episode they have already got me empathizing with and caring for the characters that will soon be horribly torn to fleshy shreds by legions of the undead. I don’t want to give ANYTHING away but there was one little dialog detail that paid off in an unexpected way that really showcased the writer’s attention to detail and character development. If they can maintain that level of quality coupled with the every three to five minutes or so zombie headshot ratio, I think we have a real winner on our hands.

I expect we will be talking about The Walking Dead quite a bit on the next HE Podcast.

Mr. Fish Goes To Washington

After listening to Kevin Costner testify about how he would fix the Gulf oil spill, I kind of get the impression he bought a “Magnificent Oil Machine” kit out of the back of a Boy’s Life magazine. Though I can see him, gills clogged with syrupy crude, clutching sea turtles in his webbed toes and sea-shepherding them to safety. It’s a tough life for The Mariner. He is more at home with the dolphins and giant mutated sea turtles (it turns out he wasn’t actually able to save them) than he is with humans. His only comfort is that in the ocean, no one can see you cry.

So how is it that actors go about getting face time with congress? Is there a special clip board somewhere in Washington they just have to sign up on?

Name: Costner, Kevin
Occupation: Actor, Director, Ichthyosapien, Amateur Science Enthusiast
Reason for addressing Congress: I bought a patent for a macine that eats water and oil (mixed) and craps water and oil (separated)

Even James Cameron proposed shooting arrows tipped with Unobtanium at the gushing pipeline or some such. That’s an imaginative idea. He should make movies. My challenge to you: How would a particular actor/celebrity solve the oil spill crisis? Perhaps Morgan Freeman could narrate as Tim Robbins crawled through the pipeline with a very large bag of clean clothes tied to his ankle.

Juggalin

One can only assume that Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC will involve the former governor pushing pregnant moose down a flight of stairs, slitting the throats of brown bear cubs with a javalin while racing a snow mobile and clubbing baby Eskimos. Their precious pelts are worth their weight in endangered whale blubber at the trading outpost.

If you enjoy HE and and would like to show your support for the comic or The Experiment, please consider getting a book or shirt in the store or making a donation.

If you are a Juggalo sympathizer of some sort or your tea bag swings to the extremely far right and this comic offends you, please address all concerns to Randy since he inspired this comic over dinner (and via twitter).

C2E2 is THIS WEEKEND!!! April 16-18
If you are going to be in Chicago, come say hi!

It seems like this has been a banner week for enemies of science, champions of ignorance and the glorification of all around, good old-fashioned dullardry. I actually think Palin fits right in with ICP. Much like her Juggalo kindred [and the ancient Aztecs] she doesn’t know how the sun works, doesn’t want to know and is pretty sure she should fear it and sacrifice a few of her brood to insure a bountiful harvest.

If we can learn anything from the “Juggalin” or “Paliggalo” philosophies, it’s that scientists are “snake oil salesman” and “mother fuckers” that be “lyin’ and gettin’ me pissed“. At least we can all agree that nothing in this world or beyond can be explained without magic. To attempt to fathom how rainbows are made, why our kids look like us, or how dirt is dirt is to question the will of the divine and drive a stake into the heart of all those that believe in miracles.

Didn’t You Get That Memo?

I can’t comment on Pat Robertson’s disgusting comments regarding the great tragedy and loss of life in Haiti. Nor can I conjure words to describe my feelings about Rush Limbaugh urging people NOT to donate to the Haiti relief efforts via WhiteHouse.gov (which just has a link to the Red Cross) as to not “play into Obama’s humanitarian agenda/strengthen his acceptance by minorities, etc., etc.” I can only reiterate my initial gut reaction [previously posted on Twitter]:

“I want to see Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh get face-fucked to death by a semi truck.”Continue reading

Dick Everlasting

Alternate ending:Ancient Spirts of Evil, Transform this decayed form into CHENEY THE EVER-LIVING!!!

[This comic is translated from Dick Cheney’s native language, a mixture of Parseltongue and the dark tongue spoken in Mordor]

Cheney was looking pretty rough at the inauguration on Tuesday. He was on his third baboon heart, and previously had all of his bones replaced with steel recovered from ground zero. With his titanium kidneys and cobalt spleen, he is more machine now than man. Though there are those that believe Cheney isn’t a man at all, rather he’s actually a highly evolved insect that has learned how to use it’s natural camouflage to mimic a human appearance. Personally, I believe that he is ageless. He was birthed of the primordial fires of creation, and roamed the Earth long before any other sentient life. He drove the demons, trolls and orcs deep below… or they banished him to the surface… either way, he is as ancient as he is evil and he is large amounts of both.

I’m guessing Cheney has been assuming different identities throughout history. Who was he? Zeus? Jack the Ripper? Joseph Stalin? Dracula? I bet he was Dracula. Also, feel free to share your ideas for other ways Cheney has kept alive all these years. I would have defaulted to the obvious conclusion that he’s a Cylon, but without the Resurrection Ship, I’m not sure how that would work.

And before you tell me to take it easy on Cheney, or the Bush administration, save it. I’m still high on Obama fumes and I’m not nearly ready to come down.

And a SPECIAL THANK YOU to those Twittering FB’s that unwittingly helped me write this comic with their @’s (justchristine, lonneynerd, bradymikep, bshirley, jaydeflix, and muttonhead104).
