Fri, Jan 23 - That Poor, Poor Guy I just feel bad for him, the dude in this week's strip. He's just so helpless, just has no defences, no understanding of what's about to happen. It' wasn't his fault; it could have been anybody. But this week it was him. I dunno; maybe I'm too close to the situation. I'll let you folks decide as you unravel

Jan 15 - Fr-fr-fr-ferferfer-frer-FRIDAY Why hello readers, do you still exist? I must admit I'm shocked. I've been obvious about just how little I have cared about stuff, politics, the power of econonmies and many diffirent things. All of you who still read this ridiculous blog, you who check in on your own account on Fridays, without machinery feeding you everything you've always wanted: welcome back! This week's cartoon is a simple exercise in me trying to not spend all my gettting-to-sleep sleeping moments thinking about Ultron. It is called Sooooooooo, yes, I'm pretty much holding down my life in hopes I'm still alive 3 and one 1/2 months until May 1, when Marvel's Avenger's Age of Ultron appears in theaters. I want that movie so bad. I want it to be mean and angry, to have jokes like the last one, but for it to be ugly and helpless and about how Avengers can't avenge. I'm even willing for it to be one of those goddamn stories in which super-heroes spend the whole time doing nothing else but clean up the messes they themselves create (the very worst motherfukking superhero stories that have ever been written). Like, as though, it's as if superheroes were super great at stopping bank robberies or back-alley muggings, problems they could punch in the face. As though Crrime was the only social ill that needed powerful people to address. Crime, it turns out, is a great social ill for superheroes because it's punchable. Poverty? Disease? Hunger? Injustice? Less punchable by dudes or gals in leather or spangly-colored outfits. Far more difficult to find answers. But problems just the same, and I do love those Avengers. And I have no choice but wonder about the robots that hate them. Thus, please read (the same comic linked above!)
Fri, Dec 19 - Peace! Hey, folks, it's that time of the year again, that time when I head back to Edmonton for Christmas, that time when, because I'm stupid, I'm not able to do site updates until my return. So, here it is: the last angryflower.com update of 2014! WOOOOOO *cough cough*. But fear not, dear readers. I know it's cold out there, cold and dark, so for this last update, I give you not one but TWO cartoons! Okay, admittedly, one of them maybe isn't all the great or "funny," but I heard somewhere it's the thought that counts and I'm sticking to it. So, here's one: and right behind it, here's the other: See y'all next yar!
Fri, Dec 12 - Not a Planet! Gonna be a pretty quick update this week, as I've got a lot of Blu-Ray special features to get through tonight before I go to bed. Still, seeing as how the New Horizons probe just woke up and is closing in on Pluto, it's time cast our attention to way beyond Neptune to think about (Charon is Pluto's moon, incidentally).
Fri, Dec 5 - Dekimal Why Dekimal, for this week's update title? Well, because I wanted to invoke all three of December, deca (a metric prefix), and deka (possibly also a metric prefix, or maybe just a different way of spelling December). Whoof, it's been a bit of busy year, hasn't it? It has been been for me, and I've been lucky enough to have spent it doing labor for which I was well paid. How about the rest of you folks? The same? Lots of work, maybe being paid appropriately for it? I surely hope so. Work work work, lots of it and more down the pipe. Do we get a chance to look outside? I know many friends who've bailed and traveled, others who've bailed and struggled, others still who never bailed and are still struggling. BALLS! Luckily, the world delivers many things about which to get upset. And thank goodgriefness it does, cuz if it didn't we'd have nothing to do but stay in our pods and deliver wealth to the owners. I certainly know I do. But Bob has a different point of view on the whole nonsense, so my job this particular week is to simply relate to all of you all
Fri, Nov 28 - Black Friday So I guess here in America it's tradition, after Thanksgiving, to go out an gorge yourself on sales of all sorts. Clothese, electonics, home improvment supplies... all these and more are made available at prices much reduced in celebration of the grand spirit of acquisition and ownership. I hear it's a grand orgy of consumption, but I've never really gotten into it. Odd, really, considering just how much I adore
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
