Does it count as “writing a cartoon” if I just stole some clip art and wrote my own captions? Because it should.

ROFLMAO! Seriously? Cancer never looked so funny.
It Counts. I looked it up.
Okay this made me laugh, is that mean of me?
Did you come up with that all on your own?
Cause you’re really twisted if you did. Funny, yes, but definitely twisted.
If I was gonna bat for the home team…AND I wasn’t married with children, I would wine you and dine you and whip Wil Wheaton’s behind. And maybe Victor’s.
This is my favorite cartoon ever.
don’t you mean “fucking cancer”?
I am so in love with you. Is that weird?
I think it’s genuis. Maybe you can hook up with someone that can draw and you create the punchlines. Do you read Cyanide and Happiness? http://www.explosm.net/comics/796/
Sure why not. That’s what the dinosaur guy does.
Holy shit that’s funny! I like that we can curse now.
You are so sick.
Now I REALLY want to marry you.
Some guy emailed me and asked me to write jokes for his cartoons (and I thought your cartoons must be so way lame if you’re asking me)but anyway, yeah it totally counts.
Yeah, cancer isn’t typically funny…but here? TOTALLY funny.
I had a witty comment and then got all excited thinking when I read Robin’s comment about whipping Wil Wheaton’s behind. That sounds fun!
Actually my coworkers were outside of my office and said the stuff in the first box, then I didn’t hear the rest of their conversation so I just made up my own. Then I found out her father really *did* choke to death on a dime. Is that coincidence or irony? I always get those confused.
Lotta – Cyanide and Happiness. Hell yes.
Did you get the clipart from babypips?
Actually I got the clipart from powerpoint. I’m totally cheap that way.
I agree with willow. In fact its even COOLER to use someone elses clipart. It counts in spades, for days, for Jesus.
(1) Of course it counts! Haven’t you seen “Get Your War On”? If not, see http://www.mnftiu.cc/mnftiu.cc/war.html
(3) Happy new blog to you. I’m all for more offensive.
This is funny. Frankly, I’m gonna steal that line and use it in my real life very soon.
ok, somehow I left my comment under the cancer one, and not the “moms put out” one. This one’s funny too though. Don’t know how I can use it in real life though. I’ll get back to you on that I guess.
Choking to death on a dime? Really? If I’m going to choke to death on money, I’d want it to be a million dollar stuffed down my throat. Not a measly dime.
I appreciate you taking the time to share them with us all
It totally counts!! you’re awesome!!
So wrong, its right!
Oh, I really feel that one. Pretty funny. Absolutely counts as writing!
