Fri, Nov 21 - Guestus! Every so often one or another my friends or siblings suggests a cartoon idea. I pretty much never take them, and they know it, but they still try. And very, very, very rarely, I'll actually take one of those ideas and make it into a strip. This, beloved readers, is one of those times. So, if you enjoy this week's Bob the Angry Flower cartoon, you have one Jody Cloutier of Edmonton, Alberta to thank for it. If you don't enjoy it, well, that's on me. So, without additional ado, here's
Fri, Nov 7 - Movember No, I'm not growing a moustache for Movember. I mean I guess it's for a good cause and all, but I already have a beard, or at least a goatee. Sure, I could shave the bottom part off and leave myself with a moustache, but then I'd just have a moustache, and the point of Movember is that you're supposed to grow one. So I just don't see how that would benefit anybody. That's my position and I'm firm on it. Anyway, here's a cartoon, both action-packed and mysterious! It's
Fri, Oct 31 - All Hallow's Q Happy Hallowe'en, folks, people and stalwart steady readers! How are you all enjoying the runup to this year's Hallowe'en celebrations? I'll admit I'm not going all out, nor am I pumping massive amounts of personal energy into a Hallowe'en costume. The limit of my Hallowe'en exertions this year is making sure that the apostrophes get properly placed in each instance between the two Es in "Hallowe'en". That and reminding myself to wear the flower hat to work tomorrow morning. But this and that and the other things are of little interest to you, my ever-constant readers! The only question teeming in your minds is, "What's the next Bob the Angry Flower cartoon?" So, with little regard to social media, conscience, or how to trend things, and having nothing at all to say about all the allegations flying left and right in Canadaland about possible radio broadcasters, I simply present the following statement. I trust it suffices:
Fri, Oct 17 - Doubles! As promised last week, when circumstances determined that there wouldn't be a new Bob the Angry Flower cartoon way back then, we now put two cartoons together this week, even as while it's done it's now obvious that it shouldn't be done this way, because they sorta mix together without either meaning anything. Nonetheless, here's the first new strip, from last week, so not that new at all, and it's Shocking! But it's simply not enough for Bob the Angry Flower cartoon fans, hungry afer a week of no rations, so it is immediately followed by this other strip which is intented to crumble the very fundamentals of our society, insofar as cartoons may!
Fri, Oct 3 - More Years Now that most of us with important birthdays have gotten them out of the way, it's time to simply consider: what now? Once the meaningful people have squared away their birthdays between now and the end of the year, it seems trivial and pointless to spend even a second or a handfull of characters talking about how those "people" might feel about the rest of the closing of the year. So, let's talk about APE! That's the , this very weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct 4-5, at the Fort Mason Center in we-hope-and-pray sunny San Francisco, a white box filled with alt cartoonists, end to end! We used to hang out and do our annual thing in the Mission District in an old train station. I'm told they're tearing that old train station down, so all us alternative press expositors gotta relocate back to where we were fifteen some years ago, the aforementioned white box right next to water and a bunch of sea lions! But what of the SatireFest the following weekend? What of that impossible collusion of alt cartoonists, everyone from Jen Sorenson to and including everyone in between and beyond besides, folks like , fer instance? Do come out this weekend to check out all the wonderful comicry going on! Do, do! And then be present twice as hard for SatireFest, where enormous political cartooning action will be abundant!Halfweek I'll be down in San Francisco for the next week and a half, and that means I won't be around to update next Friday. So sorry, readers, you get a cartoon this week and none the next week. Is it faint consolation to know that you'll get two cartoons the week after next? I will leave it to your hearts to decide. Right now, though, there's an immediacy, a drawn tale of humor and stuffness, and it's calledTed RallKeith KnightMatt Bors to Alternative Press Expo
Fri, Sep 26 - Well then what now Ah, yes. Another week of time has rolled around and delivered a need to post another new update.It's both odd and curious how one can spend four out of the last six days in nothing other than a drunken slow collapse. One would think that the collapse would, at some point, finish collapsing. But it turns out, when one's talking about drinking and birthdays and again another night's worth of wine and gins, that there's no bottom. Or at least not yet. It just keeps happening, like those black holes we've recently been given reasons to believe do not exist in our physical universe. Regardless, in spite of all these nonsensibilities, we have this week a new Bob the Angry Flower cartoon, inscribed in pencil and ink in the following manner:
Fri, Sep 19 - Virgo! Yeah, my birthday's coming up. I'll be a crisp and flabby 44 next Monday. I used to take a lot of pride and satisfaction from sharing a birthday with both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins (in the uncorrected calendar, of course); now I'm nsot so sure if I should. I mean, having the same birthday as a pair of fictional characters? What could that possibly have to do, good or bad, with me? And then I remember: Hobbits. They're hobbits. And then all is reborn anew! Anyway, that has precisely zero to do with this week's strip, a unusually silly bit of trifle called
