Normally my #1 Bun Toon of last year comes on the FIRST day of the new year, but yesterday, essentially without warning, I was whisked away in a car with my wife and children to a town far far away from my home for a larger family gathering of my wife’s brother/sister/mother peoples. Delightful time was had by all, and many of the family are still there as I type this…but as for me, I was delinquent in yesterday’s Bun Toon entry for reasons of merry making, family and good will to all. So there.
As a result, I’m dragging the New Year out for one more day in my virtual reality Bunny World. How can that be a bad thing? You get to get blind drunk again, as we all get to look at the SECOND most popular Bun Toon (and the nearly least popular Bun Toon) of 2014 on this, not really New Year’s Day.
If I had to list the Marvel Characters I’d Care Least About Getting Their Own Movie, The Guardians of the Galaxy would have made my bottom five…at least in their original Marvel form. I mean, I actually READ those comics when they first came out in the Seventies…and I might have been the only one…
This Bun Toon was shared, and clicked, and linked to, and posted all over the interweb when I put it up this summer, and I’m going to assume it was the free publicity that it generated for the movie that made Guardians into last year’s runaway hit film. Marvel has yet to thank me.
I also rescued Constantine from cancellation last fall with the following Bun Toon, done in a similar vein.
It just squeaked out of the top five, so in theory you shouldn’t be seeing it here…I suspect Constantine put some sort of a spell on me…
Ah, the power I have over Hollywood. He started smoking on the show the very next week….
Now for another Bun Toons From The Dustbin of History.
Once again, it’s a sentimental, holiday themed Bun Toons that didn’t move the web-clickers. The big audience just wants to see cars explode and things on fire and people getting their ears cut off…
Caution: Trigger warning for anyone who’s ever had their ears cut off…
I told you. No exploding cars – That was the problem.
But I was IN a car with the wife and kids yesterday, which is why you didn’t see this Bun Toon when you were supposed to.
See you guys tomorrow for NEW NEW YEARS DAY! YAY!
Seriously, I’m keeping up the lie.
