I’ve been a big fan of Zen Pencils for some time, and this particular poster has always been my favorite.
To everyone out there fighting the good fight… never give up.
Back when I was 18, most of the celebrities I liked were a good 5-10 years older than I was.
Now that I’m slightly older here in 2015, a good portion of these same celebrities from before are now 3-5 years younger than I am!
Either (A) I’m traveling through time faster than everyone else, or (B) there’s a still a prevalent, ignorant prejudice in our society about the honor and grace of aging naturally.
Aging is a tremendous blessing when you consider the sole alternative! With aging, you gain…
So, yeah, aging is wonderful. It’s cool! It’s hip! It’s happening! (literally)
Buuuut I’m at that age where there’s no way in hell I’m going to tell you my age. Catch-22. Now get off my lawn.
So there I was, just “screening” cartoons for my Godson, when I saw this little tidbit from an old Foghorn Leghorn cartoon…
That maybe might have meant something else back then. But NOW?
No, sorry, m’boy. Them cartoons, I say, them cartoons I usedta watch as a young ‘un ain’t a-ppropriate no more. Lets shoot some things on that thar Xbox you got instead.
Whoever decided to try and sell something named KuKui near Mexico has either (a) never done any market research in their life or (b) has a particularly vicious sense of humor.
For the rest of the world that has no idea what a KuKui is, it’s a very famous folktale monster told to misbehaving kids around Mexico. “You better behave, or the KuKui will get you!”
The closest thing to a KuKui in the US is the “boogeyman”, but saying “you better behave, or the boogeyman will get you” isn’t even close to the kind of terror mentioning a KuKui can bring.
You know, now that I’m thinking about it, maybe I should have bought a bottle. For research purposes, of course.
And the dad in this photo is enojying it as much as the baby.
If *anyone* knows where to get one, please email me. This was originally on reddit, but nobody there knows where the original is from, either.
I know it’s an old clip, but it still makes me laugh. And if you don’t know who Spongebob Squarepants is, get off my lawn right now.
