Aren't these just the equivalent of cruel caricatures of your fellow community members? And they're "the best thing ever"? I mean, far be it from me not to espouse mocking your fellow community members, I just didn't realize it was officially celebrated. Man, this awesome. I'm gonna totally let loose.

This is ... mere words cannot do it proper justice.
posted by ninjew at 1:16 PM on September 27, 2006


Caricatures, by definition, are graphic depictions grossly exaggerated for comedic effect. Certainly nothing to get upset about, and they can hardly be considered cruel.

I love 'em. I keep seeing them randomly interspersed in various threads, and I was never sure if they were original, or if someone just took some existing pictures and added captions to the speech bubble. Awesome stuff.

P.S. Please do dios.

The pressure to comment is getting bigger and bigger every day. Before I even posted, I spent weeks thinking up a username. Then I scanned every front page post three times to make sure I understood the nuances of the conversation. When I finally posted, I was worried I'd get called out. Then I hoped that someone would respond. Then I prayed to be marked "favorite." Then I wished to have cortex turn my comment into a song. Now I screw my eyes shut and breath into a paper bag in hopes of having my comment illustrated.

My hair is starting to fall out in clumps and my teeth feel soft and fuzzy now.

I would be more concerned if John were actually tracking down photos of the quoted members and drawing from those, and incorporating insider knowledge of the particular user to malicious effect.

(And god help you if he decided to. I am certain he could reduce strong men to tears with his pen.)

As it is, these are silly editorial cartoons. We should be so lucky that every bit of inter-user mockery were required to evidence this much thought and effort.

When I saw these, I was hoping they were some new internet fad, where cartoon characters with empty word balloons were available on an internet site that would allow me to enter my own snarky comments and have an image which I could then post to MetaFilter and other sites (akin to the Fark HA HA Guy).

They are cool, but now I'm disappointed and I shall attempt to take my own life with papercuts to my wrists.

I was in Interrobang's recent MeFiSwap group and the disc turned up yesterday with gorgeous artwork both front and back that, by the looks of it, was created by his own fair hand.

To derail slightly: w00t to the Kula Shaker swapset, who all managed to send CDs.

If this, in fact, what these cartoons are about, then I agree with jonson's initial assessment. "Insult your favorite enemy" seems to be at cross-purposes with the idea of fostering the community. I'm not stating that interrobang is doing that, and I find his creative activities to be interesting. But if they are intended to lampoon users as opposed to making points, I'm going to side with jonson on this one.

The caricatures do make points, dios, by lampooning certain comments made by specific users. In that sense, they're no different than any other slightly sarcastic, pointed response to something here any of us might consider a dumb comment.

I said I loved it when I saw the drawing the person talking about no kissing on planes. It was a perfectly made-up satire, imagining how someone might say it and wasn't mocking the poster or being used to trivialize disagreeing opinions. It was just a silly new thing that I found amusing.

So I would say "do dios!" is exactly the wrong idea behind it. It's more like find the most farcical comment and create a silly comic out of it.

Personally, I'd do that boyfriend guy calling everyone on mefi a bunch of pussies, but I guess that's too obvious.

Back in Citadel days we had a "room" (permanent thread; but with a maximum # messages; old messages got dumped) for pull-quoting bits of user meet-up chatter. Wholly out of context, of course, so as to make the utteree look horny, stoned, vapid, silly, insane, or so on.

Perhaps, but if you were in the discussion, this cartoon was genius on so many levels: the yellow of cowardice, with the patriotism of red, white and blue; the leather iconography and bored eyes of banal, fascist S+M.

...it's okay to say that but not draw it?

Hey, I don't make the rules. If it were up to me sophistry of any angle would be mitigated, rather than the hypocritical standard that remains; axe grinders, I heard daily kos is 2 doors down lol omfg ceiling pancakes

I find it odd that one would take such a stand on moderation while quietly take pleasure in these crude renderings, as if that's some sort of means to an end. Enh.

...shooting bullets at buses carrying the mentally disabled...

You're the one who interpreted it in that fashion. Do you really think I was referring to it in the capacity of firearm discharge at the physically handicapped? Have you never heard sniping used in the terms of demeaning conversational shots taken at another party? Continue with your clever mockery, you little devil. You saw right through me!

I stand corrected.

I'll be sure to note that calling the mentally disabled "the short bus" is legitimate discourse. Really poor taste.

Why don't you just email me and tell me you think I'm a dumbass and you don't like what I said? Really. It's listed for a reason.

Because then we couldn't watch. And bugbread is nothing if not community minded.

Well, y'know, if you want courteous and thoughtful, give it a try yourself sometime.

I've always thought of you as a cardboard cutout, cartoon character or ragged puppet, so I think the pics dovetail nicely with that mental image.

I would also support a life-sized SCDB standee or a folk-crafted plush toy ready for a weathered conservative arm to be shoved up its ass.

Well, Den Beste is involved, so if it's NOT about cat maidens by now, it will be shortly.

I'm starting to see a pattern here. "Really poor taste" says the guy calling the mentally disabled "the short bus". "Why don't you just email me" says the guy on the public forum instead of in an email.
