Garry Trudeau, the author of the seminal comic Doonesbury, has been on sabbatical. Damn you, Watterson for popularizing this practice. I need my cartoon monkeys to work 365 days a year.
Anyways, the Washington Post is running other lesser known comics in Doonesbury's space as a until Trudeau returns. The current placeholder is Scott Hilburn's Argyle Sweater. Hilburn obviously has a special gift for taking the foibles of everyday life and churning them into relevant and humorous works of art.
Like today's comic for instance:
Hahahahahahahahaah! Get it!? Females are bad at sports! LOLOCAUST!
The only thing worse than a bad comic is a comic that's bad and mindlessly offensive. The Washington Post gave this guy a pretty big break. A break he so obviously doesn't deserve. I hope this piece of shit comic gets pulled post haste.
