Top 14 Rejects of the Month: April 2011

I had so many unpublishable cartoons this month that I give you FOUR EXTRAS!

14. I actually meant for this cartoon to be kind of a tribute to this one from four years ago, but instead, I think it probably just seems like a ripoff.

13. This was enough of a strawman cheap shot that I actually talked a publisher out of running it. It was pretty disgusting to watch people who should know better falling all over themselves to praise Paul Ryan’s budget as “serious” and “courageous” and all of these other adjectives that have become the highest praise available in a pundit’s praise box, but it’s not as if anyone were actually trying to equate his budget bravery with military service. So I withdrew this one.

10. I kind of forget what the point was here (sometimes I’m too subtle for my own memory). I think maybe I started out with questions that are so obvious that no one actually wonders? But then they turned into questions that are just so absurd that no one wonders. So I guess the point was that these are questions no one seriously gives any thought to for whatever reason. But it was an opportunity to try to get O’Rourke’s and Lars into more cartoons.

9. If this one had gotten picked, I was totally going to draw these guys in FFA jackets.
