I hope everybody had as nice a Thanksgiving as I did. I loaded up on gravy, mashed potatoes and pie – all of which has once again gone right to my hips. The holidays always wreak havoc on my figure.
Aside from the orgy of food, it was also a good week for comedy! I cranked out two more poorly drawn cartoons and David Letterman told two of my jokes on TV!
Let’s start with the jokes. First, Dave told this one on Monday’s Late Show (11/24/08):
Political insiders are now saying that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have formed a good working relationship but they don’t have a close personal relationship.
That’s right, Obama and Hillary have a good working relationship but not a close personal relationship – no, wait, I’m sorry, that’s Bill and Hillary.
Then, he told this little throw-away line that I wrote on his Thanksgiving Day show (11/27/08):
I have a lot to be thankful for this year.
Sarah Palin, Eliot Spitzer, John McCain, Amy Winehouse, Andy Dick…
Following on this Thanksgiving theme, IT World published my latest IT Underworld cartoon:
Last and pretty much least, I closed out the Thanksgiving week by posting yet another Schwilm cartoon:
OK, enough with Thanksgiving! Time to get to work on Christmas and Hanukkah material…

Adios, Sarah! Plus, More Toons!
Am I the only one who thinks the presidential election season was too short? I was thoroughly enjoying it! In particular, I enjoyed that wacky Sarah Palin. Oh yes, you couldn’t make her up. She is a gold mine of joke material!
To wit, David Letterman told the following joke that I wrote on the Late Show the day after the election (11/5/08).
Now that the election is finally over, Sarah Palin is headed back to Alaska.
I know one thing: I wouldn’t want to be a moose now.
You can also watch the video of the entire monologue here.
Now that the election is finally over I am drowning my sorrows in cartooning! it is not a pretty sight. See for yourselves:
My latest Schwilm cartoon:
My latest IT Underworld cartoon:
If you like ‘em, please spread the word!
In the meantime, the 2012 presidential campaign should be kicking off any minute here. Yay! I can’t wait!

Election Twittering and New Cartoons
Most of you probably don’t realize it, but Tuesday is Election Day! I know, I know – it really snuck up on me too!
My schedule for Election Day: up early to vote, go to work, come home and plant butt firmly on couch in front of TV, with laptop on lap to live Twitter as the results roll in! Be sure to watch for my tweets! Wait, that almost sounds dirty…
In seemingly unrelated matters, my third career as a semi-professional cartoonist continues on apace. Earlier today, the latest toon in my IT-centric comic, IT Underworld, was posted on ITWorld.com. Behold:
Be sure to go to the site, add a comment, give it a thumbs up, tell your geek friends to check it out, etc. etc.
Finally, on Halloween night, after taking the kiddos around to get free candy from the neighbors (heh, suckers), I posted a brand new Schwilm cartoon!
OK, I’m all out of plugs. Don’t forget to vote – unless you live in Florida, in which case it probably doesn’t matter much anyways.
