If you mouse over the cartoon above you'll get two different punchlines.
That's two completely different punchlines, not a continuation of the dialogue
with intent to create added mirth.
There is a difference.
There were actually many different punchlines for this set-up, not untypical
for most comic strips, but the original one, the one that caused great gobs of
glee among my friends and associates was "We are SO totally fucked".
It was pleasing to me in a sophomorically cathartic fashion but I ultimately
decided against it because I plan to work at Air America some day and I just
KNOW this comic will show up on Lexis Nexus and queer the whole deal. (About
four of you reading this are nodding your heads at that statement. The rest of
you are completely stumped by it. Trust me, it's not funny.)
The punchline I used made some sense within the logical framework of the jape
but, to be honest, the joke was more about the Iranians than it was about the
cute lil' pengies. so because I couldn't make up my mind you get two, two, two
gags for the price of none. Either way, I hope you enjoyed at least one of them.
From a purely mathematical standpoint it was worth a shot.
Now, to be perfectly honest Our Boy George never uttered such a statement but
I doubt I'll ever receive complaints about it because those who support the president
nowadays certainly aren't reading this comic. They're more likely out fornicating
with their relatives or scouting the countryside looking for something soft and
cute to kill with their off-brand Uzi's or they're welcoming others like themselves
If you think about it, though, Bush really should say something exactly like
that but he won't. Ever. That's because puppetmaster Richard Perle and his buddies
at the PNAC have this raging boner for reducing Iran to kibble because it poses
a threat to Israel, and Mr. Mission Accomplished always dances faithfully to
the PNAC's treacherous tattoo.
Destroying one country because it is a possible threat to another country is
a really lousy idea because that would logically result in only one country standing
by the time the dust settles. And by the looks of things that country would be
Israel because The Littlest Emperor is doing his darndest to destroy America
all by himself without anyone else firing a shot.
