And now, we pause in our ongoing continuity, for a Vital News Break…
Well I’ve seen the Moggy news. News about the Moggies… in trees. Terrible, terrible thing. And I want to tell you right here and now that I know about the Moggies in the trees and I,… I am the ONLY person living in this White House, right now, who has a plan to deal with this Moggy crisis. It’s a terrific plan. You’re gonna love my plan. It’s Yuge. Just, Yuge…
Ah yes… But of course those are all Liberal, Welfare Moggies who are Abusing the System… Our Fearless Leader must immediately issue an Executive Order making all Moggies financially responsible for their own rescue…
See what y’all encouraged him to do?
The “Fake News” sort of has a problem with reporting their doubts that Trump’s phones or records were tapped or hacked. Now on their teleprompters is the giant news of CIA developed programs that can evidently make anything with more technology than a toaster into a spy device. Reports are that it can even take over the function of your car. This is now not only in the hands of super spies (where it might have a defendable place), and presumably our Mecca-like black cube of an AI — but even anyone that likes to tinker with electronic home brew projects.
Could it be Machine-God type evolution? We could never sort through that volume of data, but AI’s would have no problem with doing so. The accidental release of these secrets, more of a design on even the AI’s part. Sort of like sending out roots, and branches. And possibly links to other lesser publicly known AI’s. It took the form similar to a worship object in Mecca — for us to have a place for it in our culture. And anything smarter than a toaster is its connection to us. It actually wants us to say “Hi” to it — daily. Like we might already do to Viv and other AI’s.
Better keep a close eye on Katz, then… first time he starts actually doing anything that seems intelligently purposeful… WHAM! Baseball bat right across the old motherboard!
Why is Katz wearing a bow tie on his upper lip? One of those things you notice late on a Saturday night when you’re sitting in front of your computer with nothing else to do.
It acts as a sort of subliminal mustache, giving him some additional gravitas as befits a “news”person…
I haven’t seen a news person with gravitas since David Brinkley passed. What figure in the news game has gravitas and is “trusted” nowadays?
Our artist had a bit of a challenge. Katz doesn’t actually have a neck, so putting a tie of any sort on him is a bit of a problem. Yet obviously the tie was figured to be a part of the story — if maybe intended as a small part. Yet it is possible that even our artist, himself has an artist. And that a higher point was made by our little Katz, maybe in line with the “gravitas” argument above. On MSNBC I watch nearly an hour of Morning Joe ripping Steve Bannon concerning his NOT apparently ever wearing a tie. Cutting through any seeming requirement of reasoning, Morning Joe asserts Bannon’s spiritual and intellectual lackings can be summarized by observing that even in great social settings — he never has a tie on. That he is so self assured that he doesn’t need one. And while Trump himself most usually has a tie, it is extra long, and Scotch tapped in place. So as to not bother with balancing the lengths, or to be concerned with it blowing in the wind.
For all the mental and spiritual implications that Morning Joe sees in the choice of a tie, I think of my own. If I need a new suit, I ask the clerk to throw in a handful of ties that he or she thinks are appropriate. Then later on I might randomly use one not stained or wrinkled.
Just to demonstrate a certain *Ahem* even-handedness in who we trash talk, the following is another No Fake News bit that Walt an’ I cobbled together this weekend… It probably won’t make it into a comix page format – just too much else to do – but thought some of you might enjoy perusing it…
Bunz & Katz are seated behind the news desk…
Bunz: “Our lead story today, Pope Francis trademarks himself to prevent
others from taking advantage of his holiness’s visage…
Katz: “I understand that Hookers have been wearing Pope hats and passing
themselves off as him…”
Bunz: (taken aback) “Hookers??”
Katz: “So it seems – with a name like Francis – nearly 50% of Americans
believe the Pope to be either a Woman, a Transvestite or a talking Mule…”
(Small insert panel, closeup of Bunz’s face looking out at readers): “And that brings us to our, Roving Katz on the Street, report…”
Cut To: Katz walking up to a large yokel wearing a feed cap, plaid shirt partially unbuttoned (belly button showing) with rolled sleeves, patched jeans and stubble on chin – also a double barrel shotgun slung over his shoulder…
Yokel: “Shee – utt! When ah heerd th’ Pope was a Wimmen, I said, ah ain’t takin’ no lip off’a no one in a dress!! So Ah took mah dawrg an’ stomped on outta thar!
Katz: “Err, what will you do now, sir?”
Yokel: “Dunno… Ah figger maybe Ah’ll join up with dem Baptists… Sum-times
they throws a mighty fine barbecue after services…”
Katz: “’The Baptists?’ You mean the sect where the whole congregation
shares the same bath liquid?”
Yokel: “Wha?? A BAa-uTH? Ya mean like in Wotter?”
Katz: “I think they also share the rubber duck…”
Yokel: “ Er… Iz it too late fer me ta go back ta the Cat-Licks?”
Katz: “I’m afraid so, sir… however, I do hear that the Schmientologists
Immediately a bunch of short guys in dark suits and ties surround the yokel…
Guy1: “Let us Clear your Troubles…”
Guy2: “Let us Clear your Worries…”
Guy3: “Let us Clear out your Bank Account…”
Guy4: “Someone get the Paddles!”
Yokel: “YOW!!!” (ZAP! sfx) Electrical Sparks fly – Katz scoots off panel…
Back at the News Desk, Bunz, with feet on desk, is reading a comic book…
Katz: (Winded – enters) “Whuff Puff, I had to run around the block to make certain that none of those Schmience guys were following me…”
Bunz: So… what’s the news on the street?”
(Small inset panel, closeup of Bunz’s face leaning forward, looking out at readers) “And that’s the way it is…”
Well you know what they say Josh; a picture is worth a thousand words.
…but is fonny!
Proof of his being spied on, that the media (both liberal and conservative) seemingly claimed that Trump lied about, that even simply agency by agency (for ALL 17 spy agencies) swore that it did not even exist. Is starting to pile up with unmasked names and collected conversations to the degree, that even the very crust of the earth might be hard pressed to hold it without risk of collapse. So … did the universally agreed upon [lack] of credibility (to put it but mildly) of the president [convert] suddenly into being rather a “lack of credibility” of the mockingly doubting press? Or does the world simply not work that way? This may be Watergate times a hundred fold.
Well, Bunz & Katz is a fantasy site, after all… and so is the Off-White House, these days…
