Go suck an Easter Egg!

   Poor old serpent.  Bet that is gonna hurt in the morning.  Tomorrow the battle of wills between Chicken Moe the "Prophet " and the Real Genuine Easter Bunny continues.
BTW, the part of Chicken Moe is played by a
new character to the North Park Critters gang 
 Moe the Rooster.  Shamelessly he is a paridy
of Longhorn Foghorn stolen from Warner Brothers.
  They are no longer using him so I am giving
the old guy new life.  That is the kind of guy I am.
 It was sort of like going down to the
dumb friends league and low and be hold
there was Chicken Moe sitting over in the corner
 running his tin cup along the bars singing
 "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" to him self. 
 He was not his boystrish self but once
we got home to North Park his spirits came
 alive and he was once again his old self.

The Wrath of Kahn!

 From the land of Nodd or as most people call it Kansas,
 a prophet of his God went up to the holy
 Mountain of Mount Evans and talked to his God
 and his God sent him forth on a mission from God. 
 And his name is Chicken Moe.  His mission, to bring his peeps out of bondage.  
Please note that I have given my wife Ruth top billing this week because this was her idea.

Elder Jeffrey Holland quotes

I took each each of these photographs.  The top one is of the Maroon Bells outside of Aspen, Colorado.
The second photograph is from Joushua Tree National Park in California and the bottom photo was taken along Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park just West of Estes Park, Colorado.

Ya wanna piece of Me?

Behold on Monday a great a wondrous event
 shall occur unto this comic strip Blog. 
 Yea, such an event that it was foretold thousands
 of years ago by aging old guy Prophets 
with long white beards, an event with such
 religious meanings that it will make the viewer
 sit up and say, "You gotta be kidding me!"  
On this blog I was in such a quandary.  
What should happen to all those thousands 
and yea may I say many many thousands
 of Easter chicks that Bing, the Temp Easter Bunny,
 brought forth as in a miracle, when he forgot
 to hard boil all those thousands 
and yea may I say thousands of Easter Eggs
 before he painted them. Those very same baby chicks 
are now in Bondage by the Evil Easter Bunny. 
 Yea, I say unto you, as a result of his actions, 
a miracle was born that day!  For verily 
I say unto you all those baby chicks were 
hatched and came forth in great abundance.
  For Behold I say unto you Brothers and Sisters! 
 There is an answer to my quandary thanks 
to the lovely Mrs Cartoonist, Ruth,
 who came had a vision,  yea can we say a
 Biblical Vision to this quandary.  
Monday's cartoon will be the beginning of a
 week long series that will be of Biblical proportions
 that even Col. Sanders would be pleased. 
Praise the Lord!

      And Here I thought the Easter Bunny was a furry funny rabbit.  Who whouldah thunk it.

Peep Peep Peep

Yeah Bing, did you hard boil all those thousands 
of Easter Eggs before you painted them?  
By the way, I hear the Easter Bunny
 is coming in to inspect your operation
...Wonder how that will go..he he he.

Tuesday, March 24, 2015


 I still have my doubts that Bing!
 would make  a good Easter Bunny. 
 I just know something 
is going to go wrong.

Big News!

 I was contemplating having the Email or text come from some African Country like Kenya, but decided on Easter Island since that is where the Easter Bunny lives.  Seriously.
This cartoon was done last year right before Easter.  Please note that Bing! Is now a white bunny and is still wearing the yellow and blue hula shirt.

Blessed Sunday

It's not you it is me

This is a line George Constanza used in one
 of the Jerry Seinfeld TV shows.  
Pure classic narcissism,  just imagine a rat
 who is also Narcissistic. 
 Results are a character we all loved to hate.

Ya Wanna Snuggle?


Introducing a new character, FLUFFY KITTY.

    Whenever I am trying to think of a 
Dave The Rat gags, all I have to do is think, 
What would George Constanza say...or WWGCS:

Don't forget the Easter Candy.

Words to remember from George Constanza:

What’s so great about a mom and pop store?
 Let me tell you something, if my mom and pop 
ran a store I wouldn't shop there.

Jerry, just remember, it’s not a lie if you believe it.

If I owned a company, my employees would love me. 
They’d have huge pictures of me up the walls
 and in their home, like Lenin.

Hasta la vista baby!

All this was just my way of making 
a rather long winded birthday card of sorts
 for my son Dan.
Happy birthday number 43 Dan
many more to come.

The battle for upper Earth!

Brian Williams is fighting Locklor King of
the Irish little people, with light sabers, 
sure why not?  Is Brian Williams down for the count? 
 Is he dead?  
The hero can't die and the bad guys can't win,
 it never happens does it?  But wait where did that roar come from?  
Tomorrow will be the conclusion of this 
ST Patrick's Day tale.

Monday, March 16, 2015

Take that Locklor!

For the past couple days it has been meetings
 and cleaning up the garage and finally 
I sat down to do this cartoon
 of Brian Williams as Rambo. 
Tomorrow I promise to post the cartoons earlier.  
I often wonder how it is that so many cartoonists 
can do one cartoon after another boom boom boom.
  where as for me some days it is a real struggle
 to find the time.
  Oh well tomorrow is another day.

Sunday Scriptures

 I have come to the conclusion that
 I am not very good at drawing flowery type
 illustrations but once a time ago 
I was a professional photographer and like 
to take nature scenic pictures.  
These Sunday religious scripture quotes 
from now on will look like this, 
 using my own photographs.

Brian Williams meets Locklor king of the little people of Ireland

Brian Williams is about to become Rambo
 as he is forced ( by me) to fight to the death
 against the magic of the Irish little people..
Time to break out the light sabers and other
 assorted stuff I have collecting dust in my 
cartoon storage closet.  One day I need to
take you on a tour of our cartoon closet,
 it is much bigger than it looks.  
Who knows who else may show up to help
 the critters of North Park protect their turf
 from the blood thirsty marauders of Ireland.

A paradigm shift on black rye

Tomorrow the "Historic" or "Hysterical" 
Battle of North Park begins.  
Keep in mind that the little people of Ireland 
have oodles of Magical powers 
but the little critters of North Park 
have one major weapon at their disposal
...no, not the garbage disposal
.. a really big major weapon. 
 Stay tuned to find out what happens..
It should be a hoot...no it is not an owl...

The idea for the zero with the line through it
came from my wife.  She figured that with 
a church name of It Don't Matter it 
would be kinda sorta fitting. 

As in no fishing allowed, no spitting allowed
  no carousing allowed...etc etc.
Tomorrow Brother Dave the Rat
 will give us a sample of what his
 warm and fuzzy sermons would sound like. 
 The philosophy of " It Don't Matter."
 is the reason it is a mega church.

The Church Of It Don't Matter

Please note that at the Church of it Don't Matter,
 the subject of Jesus Christ is just a sideline.  
People who come to the Church of It Don't Matter 
come for the entertainment and to get away
 from the kids for an hour.  An hour a  week
 is all it takes to be saved from an 
eternity of hell fire and damnation.

  Think of it as long as you can fork out the cash donations your every need is met
 for an hour a week including cleansing 
your sinful soul.

Brother Dave (the Rat) always gives an uplifting sermon that makes you feel good
 all over like the spirit of Christ has oozed
 all over your body.

 Praise the LORD & pass the donation basket, 
give until it hurts and let's all say

Tomorrow there will be changes at
 The Church of It Don't Matter.  
Can Jim and Tammy Fey as well as Jerry Falwell
 be causing a ruckus for the new church?

Big Cheese Dave

I have nothing against religion I just have issues with certain people starting up those uber Mega churches and then getting rich off the tithing the flock pays to their church thinking the money actually goes to spreading the word of GOD. 

 What does it take to entertain the flocks of these uber Mega churches?  
 Starting tomorrow Dave will give us a rat's eye view of what makes a Mega church successful.

Where the heck have you been?

Some times truth is stranger than fiction.
  And sometimes our friends may think 
we lead a much more interesting life 
than we actually do.

Sunday Scripture

                   The above scripture comes from the 
Book of Mormon.  A story that spans over
 1,000 years from 600 BC to the year 421 AD. 
 It is a story of  Jews who leave Judea 
by a ship they built, ( not unlike the story of NOAH) 
and end up in the New World or the Americas. 
 It is a story of  Jewish Prophets foretelling 
of the birth of Jesus Christ over 500 years 
before his birth and they named him by name
 as well as his mother and how he died 
on the cross as an atonement of mankind.  
It also tells how after he was crucified, 
Jesus Christ came to visit the Jews 
in the new world.

Day Four

                            Flash Back to day two of the long wait.
The moral of this sad little tale? 
 Don't bet against death,
 because the deck is stacked?  

Friday, March 6, 2015

Day three.

 I bet that the Grim Reaper is getting a 
tad bit tired at this point waiting for the turtle
 across the road to become road kill.  
Tomorrow is the point where this series
of cartoons becomes not unlike a
 Road Runner cartoon.  

Thursday, March 5, 2015

Betting on Death

Please note that the roll of the 
Turtle Grim Reaper is played by the guy
 who played the part of
 the Emperor in the Star Wars movies.

Day one.

Believe it or not but the idea for this 
long running gag (it will be another 3-5 cartoons) 
came to me remembering
 those Wiley E. Coyote vs the Road Runner cartoons.
 When you see the final cartoon in this series
 you will understand what I mean.
Having three to six gags in my mind ahead of time
 does save time and makes the process more fun to do.

Road Kill in outer space

And another one bites the dust over the Bermuda Triangle...Actually this is not a cartoon about
 roadkill since it is in mid air and the plane
 lands no where near a road. Lastly it doesn't take place in outer space...
 But on the other hand it was fun to draw.
Please note that no one was harmed 
in the making of this silly cartoon.

Beaver Down Time.

This is one of those cartoons that started out
 as something totally different from what 
I ended up doing.  BTW the picture on the
 flat screen TV is a Cartoon I did last year 
about road kill..   " Wow Fred's gone, 
he looks so natural".  Fred was road kill. 
 Now there is a subject that could be kind
 of fun to tackle for a couple of days..
The funny side of Road Kill.  For me sometimes
 it helps to get the creative juices going simply
 by looking at cartoons I have done in prior years.
  I would rather steal from my own stuff 
instead of stealing from stuff other guys have done.
