I like the word '****'. Anything that uses '****' that much is awesome.

Sorry, I guess I'm an asshole. I laughed at a few of those pretty good...

And sorry man, Doonsberry?! That comic just plain SUCKS.

Man, can I change my vote? I had only read the first page earlier. I just read the next few and it did nothing for me.

I guess the f this and f that got old after the 10th comic or so...

I think politically charged comics are fine (Doonesbury and others) and I have no problem with cussing.

That comic is just weak.

"Do you like war?"
"**** YEAH, YOU ****ING ****!"
"No ****ing shit?"
"**** yeah, for ****'s sake our ****ing comic is hilarious, do you ****ing get all the ****ing hipness in this mother****er?"

I've seen this strip before... I thought it was quite funny and poignant in places.

What interests me more though is why some people find it offensive.

What I find funny is.. if some one where to put out a comic strip making fun of the stupid anti-war protesters and making fun of atheist you's probably see people marching for Politically Correctness

Bush is a fvcking tool

and the comic comparing "war on terrorism' with "war on drugs" was so damn funny. The rest is 'iffy' but some are damn hillarious.

Actually the two aren't alike in so many ways.

Actually, I wasn't referring to the rather generous helping of "****s" as the cause of offense... I was referring to the sense of outrage some people have concerning the political satire/criticism of the strip.

Offense caused by the word **** just leaves me with this feeling:

Whereas offense caused by the political satire I actually find interesting and worthy of thought.

It's not offensive, IMO, it's just not funny.

Want humor with dirty words? <a href="http://www.penny-arcade.com" target="_blank">http://www.penny-arcade.com</a> or <a href="http://www.theonion.com" target="_blank">http://www.theonion.com</a>

Hell, the onion will even give you anti-Bush stuff.

Those cards are great!

As far as policital tools go, it sure would be nice in war time to actually have a president who can speak without making me want to hurl. Gore wouldn't have been muchter on this, but Bush reads the cue cards worse than anyone!

Look everyone, it's Sinewave making fun of someone else's spelling errors!

Those cards rock, I want them! I don't agree with all of their points but they're creative as all hell.

You lack appreciation of Satire
The strip is kinda dull, but pick up a collection some time, they are one of the funniest comics Ive read.

Of course Trudeau aint no Rick Mercer, but thats another story.

I was cracking up after that one. Theres some other good touches in there, but they are hidden among the loads of crap.

Or what? If Gore were pres what would be wrong right now?
And what would be right eh?

Stupid strip, I gave up after the first page. The use of the f-word every other syllable and the otherwise poor humor really destroyed it.

One of my alltime favourite strips which was also good for political satire was Bloom County. I never get tired of some of those... I wonder what happened to Breathed?

...and those cards? wicked!

Gore would be. . . doing the exact same things that Bush is doing.

They are the same person.

Actually, it's been years since I've even seen the strip. I'll have to take a look at a collection as you suggest... maybe I've matured a little in the past few years without realizing it.
