Cartoon Violence vs. the Terrifying Mutant Bunnies

Cartoon Violence!By the Comics Curmudgeon
Most people think that bunnies are cute and fuzzy and cuddly and lovable (like beloved Wonkette commenter Naked Bunny With A Whip). Most people are wrong. Within the heart of your run-of-the-mill, carrot-munching rabbit lies a monstrous carnivore that wants nothing more than to tear off your flesh with its razor-sharp incisors and then trample your bones with its unusually large feet. This week in Cartoon Violence, you’ll learn the truth about the rabbits, aka “nature’s terrorists,” and also about nuclear AIDS.

Say, how about that Afghanistan? Kind of a rough neighborhood, right? And then there’s Pakistan, which is no walk in the park either, what with the corruption and the collapsing government and the insurgency and the what have you. If you combined them — not literally, that tends to make folks mad, but metaphorically — what kind of animal would they be? Why, an enormous death-bunny, of course! This bloated, long-eared menace would emerge angrily from a magician’s hat/the mountainous Afghan-Pakistani border region, chewing through Uncle Sam’s outstretched arm (made up of equal parts diplomatic aid and remote-controlled flying killer robots) like so much delicious roughage.

It looks like the U.S. needs another, more magical tactic! Most experts agree that if cheap, rabbit-themed stage magic can’t help us, there’s only one force that can: angels! Since most Americans are morons who believe that winged, awe-inspiring quasi-divine beings have nothing better to do than watch over them when they buy industrial-size pallets of Cheetos at the Wal-Mart or whatever, this move could be politically popular. There’s just one problem: the liberals on the Supreme Court have said it’s illegal to pray for angel-powered help! But the clever Obama administration will get around that rule by wooing angelic assistance the American way: with cold, hard cash — or, more specifically, with checks backed by the rapidly expanding US debt.

Our bribed angel better get to work fast, though! Somewhere, a turbaned Taliban nogoodnik is trying to bust a move on a sexy lady in car parked in the most romantic spot in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas. Oh, sure, it just looks like he’s bored and trying to stretch his arm out a bit, but he’s really trying to cop a feel on Ms. Pakistan’s tits! Her enormous, nuclear-powered tits. Do these crazed terrorists have no shame?

Maybe they don’t have shame, but do you know what else they don’t have? Smarts about sexytime! That’s because most of them were raised in a deranged religious dictatorship (i.e., Texas) whose education system refuses to talk about sex. After getting to second base with Miss Atomo-Boobs there, our terrorist found himself afflicted with … this, whatever this is. It’s labeled “Iran Nukes” and “Containing the Virus” so I guess it’s, like, radioactive gonorrhea? Or maybe some kind of disgusting anal or genital pustule caused by radioactive gonorrhea? Whatever it is, it’s gross and uncomfortable, and has disabled our sinister enemy for good, almost as if it were inflicted by an … angel of some sort.

Having defeated terrorism forever through stealth and cleverness and bribery, President Obama deserved some chill time back in his man-cave! Here you can see him relaxing with a cigarette and enjoying the many trophies he’s won — for abortions! Yes, known abortion enthusiast Barack Obama has gotten a lot of abortion awards over the years, for keeping them legal, and for performing them in great quantities and with the care and verve that only a true aficionado of fetus-murdering could pull off. Not that he’s resting on his laurels, though! Right now he’s boning up on the latest in abortion literature, just in case one of the ladies in his administration gets knocked up and he has to perform an abortion in the middle of a cabinet meeting.

For his next trick, he’ll pull a rabbit out of a hat! This rabbit will then disembowel him with its murderous teeth, twitch its little pink nose adorably, and leap into the screaming crowd, maiming and trampling everywhere it goes.

    Two Glen McNutBag cartoons in one week? You’d better take a long shower, Josh.

    Ha Ha Big fucking rabbits.

  • Bruno

    If that Pakistani chick gave the Taliban dude a big Hummer, maybe he’d chill out a bit and stop the insanity.

  • Mr Blifil

    Where’s my fucking abortion trophy? I have been the progenitor of many a fine abortion, and ATTENTION MUST BE PAID!!11!

  • Bruno

    I think that’s some zygote fetus (I mean BABY) that needs a morning after pill?

  • Bruno

    When will these cartoonist learn to draw joints?

  • Bruno

    Josh, you’re great, but I worried you have fallen prisoner to the twitters.

  • Bruno

    [re=323007]Bruno[/re]: And cartoonists need to learn to write snarky book titles. D. Baristow would have thought of that

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=323008]Bruno[/re]: Says the guy with three comments all under 140 characters. Project much?

    Also, that Taliban guy wouldn’t dream of being in a car with a woman with that much exposed skin. Unless he was in a non-Muslim country, in which case he’d ask for sex before saying hello, then call her a whore after she told him to fuck off. They’re kinda confused that way.

  • Chickensmack

    Tim the Enchanter should have warned Uncle Sam about the Rabbit of Caerbannog…

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    You can also click on me to make me larger, if you’re interested in big, wet rabbit boners. Right, Newell?

  • Tra

    [re=322994]Darthhippy[/re]: Sigh. Knew I’d get beaten to it. Well, let me expand, anyway.

    Bunnies aren’t just cute like everybody supposes
    They’ve got those hoppy legs and twitchy little noses
    And what’s with all the carrots?
    What do they need such good eyesight for anyway?
    Bunnies! Bunnies! It must be buuunnnnnieeeessss!

    *Geek high five*

  • OzoneTom

    I don’t get it, those don’t look like Jim Bunning at all.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    Slightly OT, but the original Death Bunny, Benedict XVI, now has his own Facebook app.

  • 4tehlulz

    [re=323002]Bruno[/re]: That’s the problem; Pakistan’s been sucking Taliban cock for years and now they want to go all the way.

  • El Pinche

    Speaking of cartoons, Cut Nut gets probabation.

    Ashley Todd will become an RNC spokesperson, a FoxNews contributor and/or be on the cover of People magazine.

  • Bruno

    [re=323013]SayItWithWookies[/re]: You’re probably right, my mind only works in text message format. This also explains my lack of interest in proof reading. Go Twitterz!

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Maybe it’s just my dirty mind, but I thought the Taliban trying to grab Pakistan’s hot, bouncing nukes was actually pretty funny, which means McCoy has gone 1-2 today, which means I’m speechless.

  • SmutBoffin

    Hey, the Stormy Daniels candidacy is one step closer to happening!

    Vote Stormy — for a satisfying future.

  • Bruno

    [re=323035]El Pinche[/re]: [re=323013]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Now that Cut Nut is out of prison, how do I follow her Twitterz?

  • President Beeblebrox

    [re=322979]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: McNutbag’s cartoons have all the subtlety and humor of a Mallard Fillmore strip.

  • american mutt

    i fucking hate glenn mccoy.

  • helzapoppn

    The bunnies in those two ‘toons would fit right into General Woundwort’s Owsla.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=323035]El Pinche[/re]: Oh lordy — please don’t even joke about that. Actually, she’s probably safe from Fox News, as they really go for the bimbette look. Honestly though I hope she gets help. Hell after what she did for PA democrats, they should kick in something for her therapy.

  • proudgrampa

    [re=323118]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I’m surprised she even got probation. Why didn’t the prosecutor just drop it?

    Not defending what she did, even probation seems excessive in a case like this.

  • engulfedinflames

    #1 i don’t get it.#2 i don’t get it. #3 i don’t get it. #4 i don’t get it. #5 i don’t get it. #6 is hopey trying to restrain or somehow impede the horror of universal health care from taking all the profits away from capitalists invested in the “health care INDUSTRY”? i thought he was a socialist. i don’t get it.

  • 4tehlulz

    [re=323035]El Pinche[/re]: And Ms. California’s secret lover.

  • Zadig

    [re=323118]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Unfortunately, there is nothing that can save us from her inevitable NRO column.

  • imissopus

    Excellent work this week, Mr. Curmudgeon.

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    These political cartoons are a great example of why people don’t bother with newspapers any more.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=323129]proudgrampa[/re]: Maybe because she tried to influence the outcome of an election. I’m not really sure though. Also, judges tend to look down on filing false police reports anyway, or otherwise messing with law enforcement. And he probably tacked on a week or so for bad penmanship.

  • gurukalehuru

    Boy, that Glenn McCoy is one serious retard. He is to cartoons what George Will is to text, what Rush Limbaugh is to broadcasting, what Ann Coulter is to women, what George Bush was to presidentin.’
    Just plum retarded.

  • CivicHoliday

    [re=323022]Tra[/re]: wow, the second unrelated Buffy the Vampire Slayer post today (there’s a Hellmouth reference in the RNC Twitter thread). am having Jos cravings now…good thing we own every episode on DVD…

  • maven

    Why is Sammy Davis Jr being satirized in that last cartoon about health care? Did he reveal some posthumous suggestion for universal health care? Good drawing of Sammy, though, even down to the lost eye.
