It should be “Go Zed” since he’s the man making the stirring motivational speech. Absolutely awesome!!
Nice. Both of them.
Oui. But a change of clothes and in the Charger…is he heading for DC now? In that frame of mind? Cool; swing by Sebring and I’ll ride shotgun.
I LOVE that commercial! It is everything right about America, and everything the left hates! Hate on, bitches!
Yeah, I think Zed/Chris might have the sarc tags on, Mike.
“…everything the left hates!” Well except for the GovMotors coal-fired Caddy; I think I’ll stick with the old-school Charger.
I had to look up a couple of the references in this strip. Oh, the “Like a Girl” thing was a tampon ad? Ha! What a travesty!
I guess I’m lucky not to be an NFL fan and a guy who never watches the Super Bowl. (In fact I don’t watch much TV period.)
I know, a lot of folks on this comment thread will hate me, but as far as I’m concerned, rodeo and hockey are the #1 and #2 pro sports. I also like baseball; call it a very distant #3. And I’ll watch college football. But the NFL is a bunch of spoiled millionaires working for spoiled billionaires (when they’re not doing drugs and abusing their wives, girlfriends, and/or dogs). Who needs them?
NFL — National Felons League, n’est-ce pas!
I used to wonder when John Q Public was going to get tired of being treated like another mindless sheep in the herd. Now days I spend more time wondering what it all means that it hasn’t happened by now.
Outstanding Chris, that one is a home run!!! (or a touchdown depending) 🙂
I’m tired of supporting the looters in DC. A den of thieves and parasites gorging on the host—-us—the taxpayers. Pubs and dems are the problem. They appropriate the spending bills. O is a symptom but not the main problem. This federal beast needs to be downsized. Maybe it is too late. Congress is incapable of reforming itself.
Why should they? You know any other “job” that pays like that? Where you can vote yourself a pay raise? How many truly maintain what they promise their constituency to put them in that place of power? Where they get one hell of a “retirement check” after one term? Their retirement is more than I have ever made in my entire working life.
Another excellent strip. Right up there with your “Declaration of Independence/ Grievances” from a couple of years back (I have it saved SOMEWHERE. I just can’t find it now). This sounds a lot like an online book I was re-reading earlier today, that fits into this same theme, “Absolved”, by Mike Vanderboegh (Sipsey Street Irregulars), http://waronguns.blogspot.com/2008/07/absolved-banner-connector.html
You have to skip back to the home page to go to the next chapter, but it’s an EXCELLENT read. Mike keeps (promising? threatening?) to finish editing it and have it published, but with everything else on his plate (Washington state “We Will Not Comply”), and his general health, not sure that’s ever going to happen. But that’s ok. We have what we have, the best of efforts from two excellent watchmen at the towers.
Now. Back to the strip. Where is Zed going? And what will he do when he gets there? No Sam? No backup?
This was just a riff on the excellent Cadillac commercial awhile back.:)
What now? No sarc, no snark?
Call me way paranoid, but I am always suspicious when anything purporting to represent my side tries to sell me crap from a company that took my gov dole dollars to make crap that pushes astroturf green tech… I’m not fond of having my beliefs played to push an agenda I despise.
The script writer and actor did do a good job of sounding like real America, but when it comes to evil so dark and deep as our gov in its current guise…okay yeah, suspicious and paranoid.
Je suis armee Charlie Martel.
In poor French, “I am (an) armed Charles Martel (The Hammer).
That was superb. 400, 40X.
Mais, oui, Chris. Obviously, Zed is on his way to Carnegie Hall, and he knows how to get there. (One of the nice things about being a reloader is that it makes the trip to Carnegie Hall a lot less expensive.)
Da, mon capitan!
Chris,what are you tryin to do-start a revolution,or something?(heh)trouble is,we are a (severe) minority.
But then,so were the three hundred.I want to be there when the shit starts.
(“What do you want,to live forever?”)
That was the F*$KING BALLS! Well done Chris, I appreciate you greatly your words of TRUTH!
Always such a damn shame the original ad ended as promo for an electric car. Kind of neutered the message. If it had ended for a muscle car or a SUV or a truck? Now THAT would be America F*$K YEAH!
Chris, speaking of hardworking, we haven’t seen Zed or Sam employed for several years. Damon and Jan got Daddy, but we worry about Zed. Sam not so much, since Engineers everywhere are clamoring to hire Sam as a co-worker!
What’s the job? It’s getting rid of rogue government. Does any of what Zed’s talking about get the job done? Not really. It’s all in-group culture grunting. Which is nice and has its place in keeping us psychologically healthy in a world gone mad
It doesn’t get the job done of fixing the madness.
Chris, an engineer that takes the job seriously would spec it, plan it, and hand it off to an experienced contractor to do it. That’s not on offer here. It’s not on offer near anywhere that I can tell.
