They had the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Toronto today, so you’re getting a green background. I’m part Irish. It’s a duty.
Speaking of Toronto….
There’s nothing funny about Doug Ford.
What the hell is happening to the planet reality?
Ty the Guy OUT!
Just in case anyone from out of town is reading this, a quick refresher on the one-two joy bash that was the Ford Brothers from their heyday.
Pretty well all the above quotes are true. More or less-ish.
Rain and sleet can’t stay this courier from his appointed rounds, but a writer’s conference sure can.
Sorry I’m late, folks, I was at the CANSCAIP “Packaging your Imagination” conference yesterday at Humber College (a delightful symposium for new writers of YA fiction to get to meet professionals and listen to talks and Q&A sessions with the writers).
It’s the price of fame, fellow babies. It’s always glamorous like this when you’re a celebrity…
You’d think he’d have twigged that I was a cartoon character. How many other animated rabbits were in that production?
Ty the Guy OUT!
I’m not the only actor who made it big in the comics biz.
I heard Bill was jealous of my convention groupies and decided to horn in on my action. If only he hadn’t gone with BLUEWATER…
It’s a re-run, but my Rob Ford cartoon of six months ago seems oddly prescient.
The Bun Toon Archive, available free of charge…all you have to give me is YOUR SOUL!
Just in case you didn’t see this yesterday…my son Kellam’s take on our mayoral troubles in Toronto.
So many possibilities for Bun Toons this week…but so little time. On top of working on some more Batman 66, I’m at CANSCAIP’s Packaging Your Imagination conference today, talking about writing comics (for children and young adults).
Bun Toons should be up tomorrow…
Remember back in the summer, in those innocent days when we didn’t think the Rob Ford scandal could actually get any worse? When the crack video scandal first erupted, my son Kellam Templeton-Smith imagined a reality where Rob Ford was just a dedicated public servant investigating the ability to buy crack so he could best figure out how to save his city from it. Kellam (at George Brown College in their Game Development Program) tested out his skills for a quickie digital painting. This is the result and your bonus Rob Ford comic moment of the week:

What? Again? It’s not even summer?
At the time you are reading this, I’m snugly ensconced in Halifax, enjoying the maritime weather in November and meeting the fans down East. I wanted to do a new Rob Ford Bun Toon to celebrate the delightful nonsense going on back in my home town in the last few days, but since I got on a plane on Thursday, I haven’t been near a scanner or computer with photoshop on it.
Besides…the Rob Ford Bun Toon I ran back in May still holds up. Nothing’s changed.
It’s been one long drunken stupor.
Who…I mean WHO would have believed it was all a lie back then? How simple the world was in May when our mayor was only an ALLEGED crack head.
Ty the Guy OUT OF TOWN!
I know I shouldn’t do this…it’s too easy.
See you next week. (for those of you who are actually in Halifax and want to find me at Hal-Con, check the schedule on my APPEARANCES page.)

And you thought public health care was the only thing that made Canada interesting…
What can you say?
I just copied down as many quotes from the press conference and reported them to you guys as best I could. I might have paraphrased one or two lines, but it’s mostly as I heard it…
Gaze upon it, ye mighty, and tremble.
This is what our city is going through this weekend.
My wife suggested it was like discovering the town was being run by George W. Bush after decades of Jimmy Carter, but that doesn’t do it justice. It’s more like Scarface after Jimmy Carter….only no one is being introduced to their little friend.
Stay tuned, folks. It’s only going to get more fun from here on in…countdown to resignation…?
Ty the Guy OUT!
What’s the difference between Rob Ford and Porky Pig?
It doesn’t take two hundred thousand dollars to see Porky’s crack.
