I am Mister Rourke's Dork...your Not Host

Quote from yesterday Evening:

You can't replace a midget with a blonde.

A certain outraged someone misremembering Tattoo's replacement on FANTASY ISLAND in the final season (1983).

A quote/slogan that would look appropos on a Bumper Sticker or--perhaps--as a Motivational Poster in your Work Place?

Recent vintage mispronunciations I've overheard of note

Pork Eaters

Because, really, the best way to fuel the spawning business is a healthy intake of swine. Why else is there Oink in Boink?

A Headline from Today that did not Pan out the Way I wanted it to

30 Years of Cerebus: Speaking of Which

I was perusing one of my favorite Comic Blogs (The Savage Critic) this morning when I came across a link to a fellow Cerebite's Absolutely Brilliant Idea (albeit, I would guess, expensive...but more power to him AND many thanks for sharing it with the you will see); namely a project he's calling The World without Cerebus. Said project entails (as spelled out perfectly by Blog Fume)

Mr. alchemist57 has undertaken to commission from Gerhard a series of 25 or so pivotal scenes from throughout Cerebus' run--as the title states, without the main character

Again, an absolutely brilliant idea.

The results of which (three so far) are outstanding pieces by Gerhard (no surprise there). Click the Titles of Each for Details.

I'm going to be checking back to the Cerebus Art site frequently for updates (the site also has tons of other great Cerebus art and pages from the title itself as well as prelim art for the three completed World without Cerebus pieces).

Even if you aren't familiar with Cerebus or not even a fan of the's still well worth having a gander.

Clearly I am WAY behind on my reading at the Cerebus Yahoo Group or I'm sure I would have already heard of this.

In keeping with The Omega Man theme:
