b-HOLE——it’s the lack of nuance in Fish’s cartooning that I disparage…...his
written pieces and some of his cartoons show that he;‘s capable…. but he evidently
finds nuance unnecessary far too often.

And I see a big white male elephant in agony nevertheless!

“It’s a small world, after all”.... especially in heterochromatic’s mind. Critiquing Mr. Booth’s diverse and often vile cartoon stylings seems to be an obsession of chromat’s. I remember Dwayne quoting his Mother as saying something to the effect of, and this is for sure not a verbatim reproduction, but here goes… “People will step on a pretty flower lying on the sidewalk but will take notice and step over a turd.” Revulsion gets noticed and imbues remembrance.
Nuance has no place in heterochromatic’s black and white world apparently.

Pooe——the “disassembly required” from Mr Fish was quite good and I enjoy his
written stuff, but there are just too cartoons that should have been held back from

Very funny and to the point. Some famous Democrats can be add to the “mix” . Democrats and Republicans are all the same shit.

heterochromatic - Oh, I totally agree with you…..but you did actually point out the value of the cartoon:
“....with nothing in it of any wit, depth or
That describes brilliantly the essence of the turdpublicans on their way to the neighbor’s lawn!!!

not out of bounds——just an utterly piss-poor
cartoon with nothing in it of any wit, depth or
I’m not offended by the content but by the seeing
such a sub-moronic piece of crap printed and offered
on the site.
Mr Fish is capable of decent work and unless he has
to churn out more cartoons than he has ideas in order
to eat, I wish he would be a bit more selective…..
save some of the awful ones for the woodshed.
msybe even do a few more prose pieces.
I sorta don’t want to see the Mr Fish stuff that’s bo
better than Limbaugh-level.

Heterochromatic - for the same reason talk radio fills the air waves…...It’s free speech right? It’s making a valid political statement, right?
Since when, in America’s current political, cultural and social climate is this sort of scatological image out-of-bounds…....?
If Limbaugh can use the airways to probe the vagina of an “intellectual feminazi” and call her a whore across the U.S., what harm is there in illustrating that the republican candidates for president are dog shit?
I actually like the fact that Romney is depicted as the biggest turd of the bunch.

Yes, heterochromatic. I had assumed that most of us were toilet trained adults on
this site. Mr. Fish occasionally slips back into his junior high days. Still, a few of
his cartoon statements have been nuclear in their insight.

why print this…....it’s just sooooo bad junior high school.
