Being of a certain political persuasion, I normally detest the work of US political cartoonist Ted Rall. However, he occasionally hits "funny" and very rarely hits "poignant."

This time, however, he's hit one completely out of the park for me and I hope the viewers of this group:

Enjoy!

PS For those who may not get the reference, Rall is here parodying the recent documentary "Grizzly Man."

Yeah, me too. Free Dirty Danny!

The squid cartoon is actually pretty good. I'm shocked.

Thanks for posting, ika-san. Nice to hear from you.

Cheers,

As cartoonists go, Ted Rall isn't like Oliphant, Fiore, or Payne, but he's okay. This comic, however, is great! Considering the press behind Grizzly Man, you would think that someone would be working on such a film. Personally, I hate to say this, but if you do see the aforementioned film just realize that personal obsession always carries a high price.
