Take one part blasphemy – one part corporate owned super-hero property -and mix well. You end up with the most popular recurring gag I did this year in Bun Toons. Super-Heroes vs. the Gods! Don’t blame me, I was only filling a need. Coming Soon: The Mighty Xtapalatakettle vs. Herbie the Fat Fury!
Expect to see more of these preposterous team-ups as I think of religions I’m okay with making fun of. Scientology, Wicca, Nascar, etc. My mother won’t let me do the Wonder Woman vs. Mohammed strip I had planned, and the coward in me agrees.
Here’s one of my favorites from 2010 toons…but it got overlooked in the ongoing media circus surrounding the Palin daughter on Dancing With the Stars. For weeks, our blog numbers sagged as we steadfastly refused to weigh in on the Palin “voting” issue, and the following Bun Toons went unnoticed by the interweb during those trying times.
See you tomorrow with the Bun Toon that brought down the 2nd biggest Science Fiction franchise in history, and I’m NOT talking about Planet of the Apes (which is probably, like…sixth or something).
Ty the Guy OUT!
