The annual pimping and bashing of my ego continues with entry #4 in the big, big top five countdown of the most popular Bun Toons of the year (and the five LEAST!).
For decades, the fine folks who collect and read comics have had their pantheon of cool, and it rarely includes Archie Andrews and his gang. This year, us comics fans were schooled on what cool comics truly are…
And what became of “The Million Moms”? Well, they never got more than about forty thousand members, and they tried to get Ellen Degeneris fired as a make-up spokesperson for Cover Girl. Ellen is still their “face” in 2013, as far as I know. So the score officially is:
Human decency: 2
Homophobic, dried-up, old louses: 0
When Bun Toons fight the good fight, it’s not always so popular. Here’s an entry about bigotry and prejudice that was ignored by the planet Earth upon arrival. Maybe I should have coloured it in…anti-bigotry rants need a little colour, right?
And besides, I sort of stole the idea from Swift…
So much for satire.
I’ll see you tomorrow as the year-end celebration heads towards our MOST read Bun Toon EVER! Oh, what, what, what could it be?
