The article is almost as funny as the movies it's talking about. But then... That's Seanbaby. Who before his gig at Cracked, created the website that won my Silver Star #5: Seanbaby's Super Friends. (So technically, between that and his contributions to Cracked, he's got two Silver Stars.)
2) So... the repeal of DADT failed. Nice. Nice political calculus, Obama. (God, he's so useless.) But I want to point of someting about these Republicans. Does anyone else find it ironic that they're so willing and eager to send other people's children halfway around the world to fight for "freedom," but they're unwilling to fight for actual freedom themselves, from the comfort of their own desks? Disgraceful.
3) My son is upstairs watching Rankin & Bass's Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (and the island of misfit toys) for the 2nd time tonight. IDK... Holiday Specials don't seem so special on DVD - when you can watch them anytime you want, or five times in a row. But there's something I noticed just now...
I think everyone is aware that Rudolph himself is a pretty heavey-ham-handed metaphor for racism. He's like the Jackie Robinson of Reindeer. Coach Comet telling eveyone how they're not going to let Rudolph play in the reindeer games? Yeah, it seems pretty silly today, but this was 1964: Pre-Civil Rights Act, etc...
And to be honest, I really don't know if that was intentional or not.
But there's another charecter that's a near perfect metaphor that couldn't POSSIBLY have been intentional at the time: Hermey the Elf (who wants to be a Dentist, even though Elves are all supposed to make toys) is a near-perfect metaphor for Transgenderism. I don't know if I'm late in coming to this realization or what, but evrything about his character, and how he is treated by others (until they finally accept him as a dentist) is a perfect fit for transgenderism.
I just noticed that.
4) The following is... incredibly filthy. (But IMHO, freaking hilarious.) But if you're easily offended,
(1) Poor Wizard.
(3) Shame of you! That's some filthy, smutty excuse for humor!
The "backstory" (I'm sorry, but the look on the Wizard's face in the 2nd to last panel is priceless!

Yeah... that strip's generally NSFW. It's... filthy. There's no two ways about it. Most of it still make me laugh my ass off though.
