See you in the funny papers

TVPigs creator Carter MacDowell has been sending us his cartoon commentaries for quite a while, so we were pretty excited to see the porky pundits show up on Comics.com -- the online home of Dilbert and the Peanuts gang. He got a syndication deal with United Media earlier this year.

 

MacDowell's funny and occasionally foul-mouthed pigs poke fun at  Congress, the auto industryAmerican Idol contestants and of course, President Barack Obama and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. He says it only takes about six hours to get from an idea to a finished cartoon, so he can react quickly to the news.

 

"My thing is to get the gag out there," MacDowell said.

 

He sent in his first clip in response to a question from HLN's Robin Meade and took off from there.  "This year there was just so much in the news, I just thought, 'Screw it, I'm going to go straight on to iReport and just start posting stuff in reaction to all the stuff that's going on in the news,'" MacDowell said.

 

MacDowell is hoping the cartoon will be successful enough that he can give up his advertising business and focus on his new career. United Media Vice President Rob Fassino said he's excited about TVPigs and that it's gotten a good response in its first few weeks on comics.com.

 

"We believe that Carter represents a new type of short form entertainment for the Web," Fassino said.

 

Congratulations Carter, and keep bringing the laughs.

That was ridiculous yet not really offending in someway. Nice that many authors like you has a unique way of interpreting and reacting with such issues. Meanwhile, another show reminds me of oddity like this, the Hoarders TV show, or Hoarders, as it's called, is a new series on A&E, is all about people who hoard stuff – sometimes called packrats. The subjects on the show stockpile a large amount of stuff, most of it useless, and refuse to get rid of it – cluttering their house to no end, and making everyday life difficult. People like the subjects of Hoarders TV show show will even borrow money to add to their burdensome collections

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.
