Let’s pretend for a moment that I was sick and tired of trying to create works of art that were funny or interesting. Instead I decided to become a worthless political cartoonist, scrawling my work on the backs of paper dinosaurs and eagerly anticipating the next tragedy so that I could draw a picture of a bald eagle crying on a torn American flag. If that’s what I decided to do, then my first cartoon might be a drawing of a mouse trap which I would label “Star Wars Galaxies”. Inside the mouse trap I would draw a piece of cheese and I would label it “The Jump to Light Speed expansion”. Then off to the side I would draw an octopus that would represent America’s foreign policy pre 9-11.
