Funny Bunny

lola bunnyI'm one of those people who believe that the collective American childhood would have been a lot less magical had it not been injected with a steady diet of Tex Avery, Carl Stallings, and Mel Blanc.

I am of course referring to Looney Tunes cartoons. To me, they should be considered no less a national treasure than the Grand Canyon, George Carlin, or the Serve-Yourself Slurpee.

So when I heard that the Looney Tunes gang were going to be rebooted in a new series of cartoons I was intrigued but, having investigated the product, ultimately disappointed. I realize we can't have Elmer Fudd endlessly chasing Bugs around with a shotgun these days but plunking the whole cast in a sitcom in the middle of a west-coasty suburbia was, to put it mildly, unadventurous.

I mean, the Tasmanian Devil is now Bugs' dog. His DOG for cryin' out loud!

The one really bright spot of the series is Bugs' "girlfriend" Lola Bunny. She's a kinetic combination of insecurity and self-delusion, and I LOVE here! She's voiced by Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig who did such a phenomenal job she snagged herself an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance of 2012.

Sadly, Lola only appears infrequently in the series but here's a wonderful date sequence with Bugs, and here's their trip to Paris. But my favorite Lola appearance of them all is this hilarious music video, a delicious blend of music, voice, and animation.

Yes, the song is on my iPod.

Oh, That Mitt.

mitt gets worseIf you're being nice about Mitt Romney you "question his mendacity". If you're more comfortable with colloquial
English then he's "a big, fat liar", which he is. Here is an enlightening list of his latest whoppers.


Romney's running mate Paul Ryan, famous for sticking his fingers down the throats of catfish, recently blamed president Obama for an auto plant that closed during the Bush administration. Yes, that's a lie, too.


What if the reason Mr. Romney won't reveal his tax returns is because it will reveal he made millions in profits from abortion?


Would Mittens engage in illegal union busting? Surrrrrre he would.


Paul Ryan opposed the Obama Stimulus package, even though he later stumped for a big wad of the money, but during the early days of the millennium he couldn't say enough nice things about the benefits of a Bush stimulus package. Not a liar this time, just an immense hypocrite.

As for the Obama stimulus package, it deserves more credit than it gets from our corporate-owned media.


I hate to do this to you, as it's 19 minutes long, but here's the ultimate Mitt Romney Flip-Flop Collection.
