Not quite Bun Toons Day

bun toon under construction

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:

Proud Torontonian Bun Toons! YAY!

And you thought public health care was the only thing that made Canada interesting...

And you thought public health care was the only thing that made Canada interesting…

What?

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!

Bonus Joke:

What’s the difference between Rob Ford and Porky Pig?

pokrysIt doesn’t take two hundred thousand dollars to see Porky’s crack.
