Still, this correlation between Warner Bros cartoon characters and dickbag political messages is oddly interesting.
Maybe it's a generational backlash that's been, like most of the rest of the memes, ineptly executed? Like they see Spongebob and Fry used in memes and they want to show these damned kids what a real cartoon was, back in their day.

Or they're the logical conclusion of Calvin peeing on Ford logos on the back of 90's Chevy trucks.

Probably the latter.

I hope you don't mind, Cain, but I threw together a Tweety Bird meme using a quote from one of your posts from the "Picking Cain's Brains" thread, slightly modified.
If you would rather I hadn't, let me know, and I will trash it. Just wanted a quick example of what something like that might look like.

aaahah I love the subversion of using Tweety to deliver that kind of message.

We need some media meta-commentary or deconstruction or something coming out of Maxine's mouth.

                                         existence from being to having, post-industrial culture hasmoved that

I Love it! Is that a higher language translation of an actual Maxine comic, or... something else?

Could someone try the below coming from Foghorn Leghorn?

Quote
Most people would prefer to believe in fantastical conspiracy theories involving aliens, Nazi zombies, secret societies stretching back to the dawn of time and occult powers gaining sinister control over our lives.  Also reptilians, Muslims, JOOS etc.

Unfortunately for them, most conspiracies involve power, money and embarrassment.  Why did the CIA attempt to kill Castro so many times?  Power and money.  Why did no-one come forward about Jimmy Savile, despite common knowledge of his crimes? Embarrassment and power.  Why did Bush redact certain key parts of the 9-11 Commission's findings, specifically to do with Saudi Arabia?  Embarrassment and money and power.

Also, real conspiracies are inevitably depressing.  The spectre of alien invaders attacking us from inside the hollow earth is far more exciting than the truth that the government sometimes pays its intelligence agencies to infiltrate terrorist organizations and then allow them to continue killing because it suits certain status quo political objectives.  Especially when you look at the list of people who have died by talking about alien invaders (practically none) versus all the judges and top law enforcement officials, many with personal bodyguards, who died while investigating actual conspiracies.

Speaking of HN, there are very few references to Roger being reptilian. Please add relevant marginalia if you can.

I'd be all over that, but I need Cain's permission first.
