Constipation (welcome to Parkie Land!) can cause rrhoids! They are Satan’s way of reminding you there’s no Preparation H in hell!!!

Thunderbolts and Lightning very very frightening

At the risk of grossing too many of you out, just remember I was a hospital corpsman. Constipation is one of the non-motor symptoms us Parkies get to enjoy. Couple that with hemorrhoids and you got an explosive, painful experience! I mean every time I fart it hurts! So we will see what I can do for it…

I love the smell of doo doo in the morning!

Well at least I USED to! I don’t smell as well as I used to. Turns out your smeller goes out with the Parkinson’s. This means our dog can get away with more…

Merry Christmas to ALL!

I know it’s the birthday of Jesus, but I still had to do this little cartoon for you all… (you can be serious at Midnight Mass, church on Sunday, whatever you guys do at Temple, etc.) Any atheists out there? Have a happy equinox!

I was possessed by the zombie ghost of Porky Pig

Well it’s either another symptom, or the result of being over medicated.  I detected a slight stutter in my conversation with others, although my good friend I was working with said he couldn’t detect it. So now I am possessed by the zombie ghost of a pig that stutters and doesn’t wear pants!

Coffee with the Illuminati…

OK, so here’s the deal. I am contemplating a new series of work based on Agent Orange and Vietnam, and I am thinking of making an “altar piece”, one of those fold up affairs that would have God the Father at the top (I was going to replace this with a  winged Illuminati eye) and then us poor earthlings in the middle section and finally Satan and hell at the bottom. Just thinking of adding Nixon and Kissinger to the sides… So I am waiting for a “sign” (nothing like voices or hallucinations) just a confirmation.

First my consultant at the Directory of Illustration emails me and tells me that the Vietnam Veterans magazine has used the Directory before, hmmm? So I go in past the Starbucks in Kroger’s and I spot this coffee cup with an “eye of horus” on it! Talk about synchronicity!
