I don’t really enjoy drawing planes and despite that I’ve done it twice this week.
I saw this story a couple days ago and I immediately saw the humor in it. I can just imagine all the birther heads exploding over Obama making a state visit to Kenya. I totally forgot about the issue then was reminded of it today. Thank God because I didn’t want to do another cartoon on Indiana just yet. I’ll probably hit that subject again tomorrow.
“There’s something on the wing” is taken from the Twilight Zone of course. It was on the show, and in the movie from way back in the early 80’s. I figure it’s well known enough to be used in a cartoon. If you’re not familiar with it then you don’t know pop culture as well as I do, or you’re not geeky enough, or you’re just not old enough and you think anything to do with “Twilight has to do with makeup wearing kissy teenage vampires.”
It goes like this in the Twilight Zone: There’s a goblin or some evil such creature on the wing of a commercial airliner and it’s destroying the engines. only one passenger can see it so of course everyone assumes he’s going crazy. John Lithgow did an exceptional job in the movie playing a freaked out passenger losing his mind. In the TV episode the goblin looks like a dude in a dog costume. It looked like Wilfred.
On another topic: Donald Trump is nuts but he’s not entirely stupid. There’s two things I believe. One; he’s not going to run for president. Trump can’t live failing at something and if he loses nobody will ever stop and pay attention while he loses his mind. Two; he doesn’t wear a toupee. The guy is worth billions so he can afford something that doesn’t look like remnants of Cocker Spaniels that were experimented on in a lab for Mary Kay. I’m sure he would go back to the fake hair store the next day and say “this looks ridiculous. Give me the George Clooney.”
Seriously, that stowaway goblin in the Twilight Zone had better hair.
