IF: Excess


"This is Bob Smith on location in Podunk, Oregon where young Timmy Tucker has fallen and scraped his knee...upon hearing the news, oil officials declared the event will cause gas prices to raise another 37 cents a gallon..."

I'm all for the free market...but when it is based on 'speculation' of events or raising prices for nonsense, I get a little miffed...

We must intervene before little Timmy joins the ranks of terrorists like Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and President Ahmadinejad of Iran.

Haha! Good point. I like the style going on here Brian. You should get a gig doing political satire comics. Anyhow, I still need to e-mail you about the prints!!

I googled Podunk, Oregon, and Jacksonville, Oregon came up... which is only 30 miles or so from where I live, so I guess I am 30 miles north of Podunk. I can tell you after moving from the SF Bay-Area, there is a major difference on what type of news they air here,, I wouldn't be surprise to see that story on the 5 o'clock.

Hi B,
When I first saw this I thought you were taking a jab at local news teams but great call on the gas prices. This is really funny.

I agree. The illo. is to the point. Podunk is a nice bonus too.
