Monkey Law, has sadly, gone the way of all flesh. Thanks to all who stuck by me for six sketchy, random years, and to all those who came aboard on the way. I will have a new project debuting shortly -- watch this space for details. In the meantime, here's a classic Monkey Law strip, chosen completely at random!
Unclear on the concept

Unclear on the concept

Maybe we’re being too hard on Michael Mukasey. Maybe he’s not being obtuse; maybe he’s unclear on the concept of what “waterboarding” really is.

I mean, it’s not like it’s self-explanatory. I had to look it up on Wikipedia when I first heard of it. And even after I heard of it, I thought it was the same thing as Chinese water torture, and it’s not.

You learn something new every day.

Anyway, while I was drawing this strip, I learned that Mukasey has sailed through the Judiciary Committee. That’s Monkey Law for you: BAM! Instantly outdated. C’est la vie.

Falwell, eulogized by Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens, always a fun guy to listen to, eulogizes the late Jerry Falwell in this beautiful clip from CNN:

Slump continues

Still nothing. This is really just because I can’t think of anything funny, but I think I’m going to blame it on something else.

Like…

Oh! I know! The emotional trauma I felt when watching TV and seeing Elvis Costello appearing in a Lexus ad. Also the vomiting that ensued.

Yeah, that’s it.

No ideas

Man, I have been trying to come up with a strip, but nothing’s coming. You’ve had a few days of miscellany, now I’d like to get back into the swing of things with a new storyline… but so far, it’s been a blank. I’ll keep you posted.

Sapped

Sorry about the lack of updates this week — all my creative energy has been going to a most unusual place — my job. I know, it surprised me as well. I’ve been doing graphics and such for a presentation at work, and it’s been occupying most of my days, to the point where when I get home I just want to flop in front of the TV and forget about it.

Now, this being TV Turnoff Week, instead I’ve simply been going to sleep. 🙂

I did try to formulate an idea for a strip, but the best I could come up with was something about how Rush Limbaugh has made a point of declaring that the Virginia Tech gunman was probably a liberal, but really, what can you say about something like that? It would have been a cheap shot, and not worthy of anyone, even me.

At any rate, Monkey Law will be back on Friday, with better material than that described above.

Wow, that’s crappy

Well, I guess not a lot of my readers use Internet Explorer 6, because I just looked at the site in that browser, and WOW, I had no idea. The sidebar is moved down below all the blog stuff. No one thought this was odd?

I’ll be working on fixing this throughout the day.
