Spokescreature Bun Toons! YAY!

The Rabbit is amongst his peers!

The Rabbit is amongst his peers!

This is the LATEST I’ve ever put up a Bun Toon, but I have very good excuse!  I spent the morning with my daughter recording backing vocals for GLENN REID’S newest CD, and couldn’t get to the drawing desk on time.

But I Bun Toon in hurricanes, darkness and floods, so it arrives after all, if a few hours late.

Now that DC Comics has replaced their nearly-always-dead-Robin the Boy Wonder with Casper the Friendly Ghost, I thought it might be a nice opportunity to look back at a few other corporate, and institutional, mascots that have been replaced over the years.  It’s a fascinating history.

How many of you still remember these…

The stuff about Spuds MacKenzie is completely true, I looked it up.   She was really named HONEY TREE EVIL EYE.

Please serve your dog alcohol RESPONSIBLY.

Ty the Guy OUT!

NRA Bun Toons! Duck and cover!

Because you can't spell Christmas, without the letters "National Tragedy".

Because you can’t spell Christmas, without the letters “national tragedy”.

I wanted to avoid the subject.  I’ve ignored the cable news, and haven’t clicked onto Huffington Post in weeks, but the culture comes at you anyway.  Now, my bestest pal DAN SLOTT is surrounded by Secret Service agents because he’s getting death threats for writing a rip-roaring Spider-Man yarn.    What is wrong with you people and the guns and the death?

Thank god we have the NRA, and the voice of sanity in Wayne LaPierre.

Earlier this month, a crazy man entered a school trying to kill as many children as he could with a deadly weapon.  He attacked more than two dozen, but the country was China and the deadly weapon was a knife and as a result, NOT ONE SINGLE VICTIM DIED.

The only difference between the event in China and the event in Newtown was the presence of the gun.    So the evidence is in, the conversation is over.

Except for exceptionally stupid people.

Ty the Guy OUT!
