(24) Comments | Posted October 23, 2014 | 11:49 PM

Well, that's that.

I thought long and hard about whether or not I wanted to do a cartoon about Margaret Thatcher. And for the last week, I did not think I would.

After news of her death spread across my friend's Facebook statuses...

Yeah, I know...

There are thousands of parodies of this particular poster out there... but I am a sentimental man, and sometimes you just got to scratch that itch.

Romney Lost Because He Was Too Damn Good at Running... Against Himself

(12) Comments | Posted November 7, 2012 | 1:54 PM
