I was razzin Brian at the Cleveland game while he was on the batters circle. I told him to hit a home run for the Playmates and he kinda smirked as he was stretching.

This is a good one. The Tigers and Lions got mixed up. So Bondarmon + Harrington equals Joeremy Bondarington.

I did see one non PC cartoon (regarding the Chevy Pride Crew which wasn't funny).

I'd say at least ten had me cracking up - mostly the February - March ones.

Hell, I'm not saying the guy isn't talented. He is. But he should try to avoid sexist captions; women, for the most part, will object to being classified as "booty," double entendre to the contrary notwithstanding. And although I cannot speak for any little people who might be members of WSI.... He's talented; he doesn't need to take cheap shots.

I would just like to urge all male WSI members to keep in mind that not all WSI'ers are male, or tall for that matter. I wonder what the reaction would be if I referred to all you guys as "big, dumb jocks" or "mimboes." Probably the big dumb jocks and mimboes in the group would be flattered, but I truly believe that the majority of the men on this site--who are intelligent enough to know better--would be offended.

Yes I agree. I still don't get your "dwarf" reference.

One point on the cartoon he offended you with - He was addressing the Playboy Mansion trip (with the Mermaids and Brian Anderson) which I am sure some females also objected to but the trip to see Hef was a White Sox approved event covered by the mainstream media. The discussion of whether or not the club should be sponsoring / approving charted trips to the mansion (or for that matter broadcasting on a station which prominently advertises pornography) has been addressed here in other threads.

As far as calling us men names, your "bite me" comments top the meek insults you mustered above. :cool: :duck:

Re the "dwarf" reference, I'm too tired to go back and research it, but one of the cartoons linked in this thread referenced dwarf tossing.

And I had no problem with the team touring the Playboy mansion. C'mon, Southside, you're smarter than this; my problem was with the comic referring to women as "booty." As I am sure you know, women were historically part of the "booty" of conquerers. My reference to double entendre was also right on.

Meanwhile, I have no doubt that I have told posters I disagree with to "bite me." Believe me, I could do better--or worse. But I really do respect the majority of the posters on this site. Including you. All I ask is that posters--of either sex--THINK before they post anything that could be hurtful. Or insulting.

The only people who should be offended by the dwarf thing are Joey Harrington and Jeremy bonderman. I love the "I don't go for form, I go for distance" thing from Thome in that one. That one had me rolling in laughter.

As for the Playboy thing, it was referring to the playmates. I found that one to be hilarious. It was really making fun of BA. I'm surprised the cartoonist didn't take a "BA K's again" approach.

I agree again but I would say the club's sponsored trip to the Playboy Mansion was offensive to many fans and I don't think it is appropriate for the White Sox to sponsor such a thing (which is what the cartoon covered). Players are adults and this is a free country so if some players decided to go on their own as long as they don't do anything that embarrasses the team or illegal (which could violate their contract).

The White Sox coordinated the trip with their team, staff members and invited the media to Hafner's Playboy Mansion built on the back of his Pornographic Empire and giving it their stamp of approval. This is something many fans would find offensive for a entertainment option advertised as family oriented - just as you were offended by the booty call reference.

The White Sox also pimp rap songs during their in game "entertainment" throughout the stadium (at 120 dB) which have far worse lyrics than the term booty call - they just play the parts of the song without the (derogatory term for female dog) and (abbreviated term for a female prostitute or a gardening tool) lyrics.

Everyone has a different level of tolerance when it comes to these issues so I think it is best to follow your advice of thinking before posting before a general audience which is the guidelines of this board.

My comments about the funny cartoons came after the link presented with the entire cartoon collection - most of which dealt with spring training and baseball - not the Playboy or dwarf cartoon.

Again, see my post above. I am fine with the team visiting the Playboy mansion. Who cares? My problem was the reference to women as "booty." And for the reasons I gave.

My point is, based on the evidence, this artist is a talented cartoonist. A sensitive male--not so much.

Oh man... I saw these before, but never really checked out the site. Now that I have, I have a couple of comments. First, what a great idea. In fact, someone's going to make some money off of sports based cartoons. As a wise person once said, there are three religions on the Internet, religion (of course), politics, and sports. The first two already command a lot of attention from the cartoonists. But second, these strips just aren't that funny overall, although I admire the effort. Don't get me wrong Mr. Author. Keep it up.

Most of them aren't laugh-out-loud funny, but they're almost always good for a knowing smile. The guy is doing four per week now, so I would think it's almost impossible to be 100% hilarious every time. And, as some posters have said, if you have sufficient tolerance for non-PC innuendo about steroids, marijuana, the Playboy mansion, Sox beer vendors, and dwarves (did I forget anyone...?), it's all in good fun...

Take another look at the cartoon. The second panel says it's not the booty he wanted and the third panel shows mermaids in bunny ears. Cartoons are open to interpretation and apparently your interpretation differs from mine.

I'll side with rdwj on this argument. If you use everyday slang that Brian Anderson would be using, he is clearly saying "I want to get some booty", not that women are booty. Sure you can interpret it the way you want, but you have to put more context into it. Ozzie says it's nice sail away from the west coast. Why didn't you interpret this as the west coast of Australia instead of the United States? Context. Brian Anderson clearly would not be saying that he wants to capture and enslave women. If that is what he was trying to do in a comic strip where he is a pirate, he would have done it and not be hoping for it, he's a pirate.

Allow me to beat this dead horse just a bit more. According to what I read about the Sox players' visit to the Playboy Mansion, Brian was hitting on one of the bunnies. I did not say that he wanted to capture and enslave women; I said that his statement that this was not the booty he hoped for implied that the booty he hoped for was a bunny, which was borne out by the next panel. Especially when you consider that the second panel also showed Ozzie commenting on getting some West Coast booty.

And with regard to your (should it have been in teal?) comment about the West Coast of Australia--well, jeepers. The Sox did not recently visit Australia. They did, however, recently visit the U.S. West Coast and while there, they toured the Playboy Mansion. (It was in all the papers.)

Look, there are those out there who agree with me and those who agree with you and probably never the twain shall meet. But "context" means interpreting something from information presented. So where did you pull Australia from? :rolleyes:

Your response was to someone talking about ALL of the cartoons, not this one in particular.

...and do you honestly expect not to get flamed by making a comment such as "no teal?" Look up the poster Bobby Thigpen in the roadhouse (it was about smoking pot.) That comment ALWAYS backfires and is dying for a war.

Allow me to retort: I could not care less.

Just so you know; I said "no teal" because I meant just that. And since it's obvious to me that any further discussion is pointless and will probably get this thread Roadhoused--not to mention the fact that there are heads and brick walls and beating one against the other never got anybody anywhere--I'm done wasting time on this discussion.

[Cue all the "lighten up" posters talking about how they "won." Awww, good for you. I'll deal with it. Pretty sure it won't cause me to lose any sleep.]

OK, it is my understanding, from you earlier post in this thread, that you objected to the use of the word booty because "women were historically part of the 'booty' of conquerers". That is the way Captain hand uses the word 'booty', to reference his captured prize of the Rally Monkey. However, my point is you disregard the other meaning of the word booty entirely. Anderson says "that's not the booty I was hoping for". He didn't want captured treasure/food, but he wanted the other meaning of booty, which is just slang for sex. I've heard both women and men use the word booty this way, and it's not sexist either way.


My mentioning of Australia was supposed to be way off. I didn't get it from anywhere. It was meant to have no context there to support it. What I was getting at is that there is more evidence to support that Brian Anderson would be using the word booty to mean "sex". Captain Hand uses it to reference pirate treasure, and then Anderson says it's not the booty he wanted. In this context, since it was already used to reference pirate treasure, one wouldhave to assume that BA was using it to reference sex, not to refer to women as part of their treasure.

Furthermore, this author often uses word play to mix up the meanings of words in a strip to get at his joke. There's one about AJ getting a hair cur where he shaves a rabbit ( or "hare" as it's written). There's one where everyone is guessing what the initials "FM" on Paulie mean. There's one where Buehrle and AJ are drinking cocktails because they are working on "chemistry". He also has Bud Selig confuse the words clear and cream. He mixes up the meaning of the word "ring" to talk about how Freddy's bells got rung by the Indians on ring day, and there are many other cases. My point is the author uses a lot of double meanings of words, that is part of the context this strip is in. In this case, if you use the meaning that is pirate treasure to reference the playboy bunnies, yes, it is sexist, but it's not the meaning he is implying. He is simply using the same word to mean pirate treasure in one comment and sex in another.


EDIT: MarySwiss, no hard feelings meant. I read some of the comments above that have been posted since I clicked reply and typed out my long winded response. I think everyone all around is taking it too seriously (as am I). I am just trying to explain my viewpoint, as I am sure you are. It's just an internet comic strip, and isn't really important. I just felt that you seemed to be just slightly offended by his use of the word, and I was simply trying to explain that I don't think he meant it the way you thought, and thus, you shouldn't be offended. The important thing here is the Sox won today.

Back to the comics......am I missing out on the joke revolving around the St. Patty's day strip where they say "Nothing good ever happens to #87?" Is it just because 87 is an uncommon major league number so its given to minor leaguers who aren't going to make the team? Or is there another reference I'm missing?
