An Illustrated Guide to Mendacity and Folly in the Imperium Americanum

Get Out Yer 3D Glasses! Our 3rd Anniversary Toon In 3D!


(Newsweek) Pounding the Keys “There she was playing her Brahms sonata, while 5,000 miles away the Mideast burned. It was all too tempting for columnists to make snarky references to Nero and his fiddle, and a few did” I was too upset about it last week for a snarky reference in my cartoon, so I’ll make up for it now 🙂

OK, we know you have a pair of 3D glasses lying around–you know, the red-green or red-blue variety that came with Spy Kids and Fruit Roll-ups (or whatever that concoction was)…lol, if you don’t you should, and if you’re really hard up for them, you can get them at American Paper Optics. Anyway, the RED filter should go over the LEFT eye and the BLUE/GREEN filter over the RIGHT EYE. Not the greatest 3D picture, but I kind of liked the idea of a third anniversary in 3D after seeing JAWS 3D and FRIDAY THE 13TH 3D

Why Not Pay An Arm And A Leg…Cut Out The Middle Man!

Yes, indeedy, feeling shafted at the pump–well don’t worry, your pain is OUR GAIN MWAhahahahaha. Wasn’t the Iraq war supposed to help us at the gas station? It looks like the only people it’s helping are the oil companies. But then again, that’s who Georgie and Dickie mean by US!

Be sure to have Your RED-GREEN GLASSES from the last 3-D movie you were at ready for Monday–HAIL DUBYUS! will be celebrating its THIRD ANNIVERSARY with a special cartoon!
