Ugly NY Cell Towers


I meant to post this last week. Oops. I drew this cartoon for The Highlands Current in upstate New York. People there do not like ugly cell phone towers. Of course, this cartoon was published before Thanksgiving.

I am not a Christmas person. I do enjoy seeing homes decorated and my neighborhood is lit up at night. But, I don’t like seeing them before Thanksgiving and hearing the music is even worse. Ugh. Most Christmas songs, like religious songs, are not good songs. People only like most of them for the topic. The only two Christmas songs I think are of any quality are Blue Christmas (the Elvis version) and Baby, It’s Cold Outside (which is kinda rapey).

I know. I’m gonna get a bunch of comments attacking me not liking Christmas music. It can’t be any worse than the outrage I provoked when I criticized cats.

Have I mentioned how easy it is working with the Current? Each time they request a cartoon and throw a subject at me, the editor actually proposes a few ideas. I have rejected each of his ideas and submitted my own, and he’s accepted without any quibbles. Sometimes, I’ve given him more than one idea for a subject and other times, I’ve only given him one.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through PayPal. Every $40 donation will receive a signed print (please specify which print you want or I won’t mail one). All donations will receive my eternal gratitude.
