Man 2: “Hmm…. That sounds like ‘fraught’ and ‘dread.’ … … Perfect.”

Sunday (Generative A.I.) Comics: If Soccer used NBA stats

By S.E. Barcus

Just kidding, soccer fans. Those of us who aren’t used to watching soccer (sorry … ‘football’…) — or hockey, for that matter — are having a hard time getting excited about such a low-scoring sport, this World Cup season…. I know, I know — the ‘beauty’ is that goals are so rare that they are to be savored, like some fine wine or some bullshit.

But really, how does this compare to watching a basketball game?! Which one has more action, along with more graceful dexterity akin to professional dancers, combined with just as much running and endurance and skill — but also with the added need for pure strength? NBA players are strong, and can still run and shoot — and shoot with higher precision through a much smaller goal. Soccer players? They’re all gaunt-looking marathon runners, and half the time they finally have an open shot, they blast the ball over the damn post! WTF?!

And we gotta sit through this whole damn game for just 1 or 2 goals scored … total? And what’s with this coy ‘stoppage time’ crap — adding minutes at the end of a game, that refs just pull out of their ass?! At their ‘discretion‘?! Mannnnn, soccer, get your shit together — I call bullshit.

Here’s the field goal percentages (sorry, the ‘conversion rates’) for the players in the World Cup with the most shots on goal, and their field goal percentages. (I’ll be honest — it’s actually a lot higher than I thought. I thought I would crunch these numbers and it would come out to, like, 1% on average. Which I guessed might be considered ‘good’. But 16 to 27%? Wow. Almost 3-point-shot percentages. It seems not so bad — until you forget that there are so few shots in a game to begin with, with all the damn dribble-dribble-pass-pass-pass at midfield, ball stolen! –> dribble-dribble-pass-pass-pass at midfield, ball stolen! –> dribble-dribble-pass-pass-pass at midfield, ball stolen! — JESUS FUCKING CHRIST SOMEBODY SHOOT A FUCKING BALL ALREADY!!!

Hey, everybody! Look what my generative A.I. software came up with when I put in, “fundamentalist Christian voters now have more Faith in the criminal GOP than they do in Jesus.”

(Photo of Satan by Alessio Zaccaria. Of course I was going for the Xian-perspective of Satan, not the groovy secular Satanists’ perspective!)

Hey, everybody! Look what my generative A.I. software came up with when I put in, “America’s Coke vs Pepsi two-party system, and stupid fucking voters.”

Sunday Comic: Closed-Door Write-Up of Anti-Abortion Bill by GOP Leaders  

By S.E. Barcus

Any laws outlawing abortion, written by a majority of males, that do not simultaneously enforce a father’s financial responsibility, are misogynistic. It takes two to tango. If you forget the father, you prove your hypocrisy, that “all you care about is human life.” That you’re “good Christians.” You prove that all you care about is subjugating women once again, like it was in the good old days, like you have done for millennia.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Or for those of you who like GIFs…. (I think it goes too fast…)

Sunday Comic: A Day in the Life of another Disney Boycott

Copyright 4-3-22 SEB

Well.  There they go again.  … The far right is boycotting Disney. Reminds me of the ’90’s boycott, which was also a joke. Friggin’ right wing leaders and their incessant strategy of dividing Americans and pushing stupid culture wars.  How tiresome. Well, at least Disney parks might be a little less crowded and more enjoyable for a while. (I mean, where are these folks supposed to go?  Dolly Parton was never called an asshole. And there’s only so many trips to a big dorky fake Ark you can make, you know? …  Their poor kids….)

This piece of shit is calling for a boycott against Disney because she claims Disney is a bunch of ‘pedophiles’. With no evidence — just off-the-cuff slander. Really screwed up with how much the far right is obsessed with the left being a bunch of pedophiles.  From the whack-a-doodle QAnon pedophile-ring bullcrap, to the recent attack on Ketanji Brown Jackson, trying to link her with child pornographers somehow or another, to this latest Disney smear….  These people are just plain creepy-disturbed….  Their poor kids….

As usual, the boycott and current grand standing, and DeSantis’ “Don’t Say Gay” bill, and on and on, aren’t meant to actually harm Disney.  (They won’t.)  They are meant to ante up in the ‘Who is more mean-spirited than everyone else?!’-race.  And — ‘May the most mean-spirited win!!’  …  That’s GOP politics for you, at least for the last 10 years or so…. They say they will make their own wholesome entertainment. … Uh…. Good luck with that….  Can anyone say “Veggie Tales” or “Stryper”?

Their poor kids….
