thats pretty good Dave! Artwork seriously improved!
can ghosts adversely possess? heyooo.
I think this is one of the funniest I’ve seen. Keep up the good work.
racism at its best…
This cartonn is RACIST
This cartoon is NOT racist. It is, however, clever and hilarious.
I completely agree with Law Clerk at 10:18- clever and hilarious.
it’s not racist. it’s B.I.G. or mr. T, not sure which. however, it is funny. david had few public characters to choose from. how many folks you know with the name “notorious’? well done, david.
It’s not racist – it’s damn funny, is what it is!!!!!! Would you also say the Plessy toon (also among the top 5) was racist?? That one ROCKED!!! In my office we guffawed over it!!!
Um, Notorious B.I.G. was a real person. And this is just a drawing of him from his own album cover (Born Again). (I did add the house on the hill). Here’s the cover: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bornagain.png (Man, wikipedia is so racist.).
ya know something funny? when people with no sense of humor visit sites dedicated to humor and allege that all of the jokes are hateful. oh no, misogyny! oh no, racism! what’s next… oh no, anti-Americanism?
suck.it.up. this is funny. david mills… will you marry me?
it’s racist cuz he’s black and it implies that the only way black people can own property is through adverse possession.
I know it sounds stupid, but that’s best argument I could come up with. That or it’s racist because he says “fool.” If only there were an emoticon for “rolling my eyes and saying, seriously?”
Huh, I didn’t realize that any cartoon featuring a black person was racist.
I suppose that also means that David Mills is perpetuating racial stereotypes because all of his other cartoons have white people in them?
Why isn’t Supraman black? Racism.
Why isn’t the Supremacy Clause black? Racism.
Why are the judges and lawyers in the other cartoons not black? Clearly racism.
Wow, dissent among the ranks. My vote is for clever and funny!
Don’t take the RACIST comments too seriously Dave. It’s just trolls. That and some people think it’s funny to call anything and everything racist. If you react too much, you’re just inviting them to keep doing it even for things that have absolutely no racial connotation.
All these comments are racist! The internet is Racist!!!
Bring on the racist comments, fool!!!!!!
This cartoon is as racist as the “hot girl” cartoon was sexist, which is to say not all. It is, however, hilarious.
It’s a classic case of “no good deed goes unpunished,” Dave. You caved to some absurdity by rewriting a cartoon that a few people thought was sexist, now you’re going to get harassed about everything.
This is hilarious; people need to calm down. I don’t think it’s racist. Who is this Notorious B.I.G. guy anyway? j/k Keep up the good and funny work!
/…said that wrong
I just think it’s bigoted against the non-stick-figure community. You’ll notice most of Dave’s other characters are mostly stick-figure-y with big heads.
In this cartoon he seems to be implying that people whose bodies exist in rough proportion to their heads need to obtain land by adverse possession, as opposed to the majority of folk (with disproportionately large head-body mass ratios) who can obtain real property by any of the other, legitimate means of acquisition.
I think it was Charlie Brown v. Zippy the Pinhead (out of the Ninth Circuit, of course) that established The cranium-ratio-challenged as a protected class.
Hey Dave. Considering that you’ve seen the album cover, have you heard “Dead Wrong” featuring Eminem on that album. Was sick! And those that don’t know BIGGIE SMALLS. He was one of the greatest rappers of all time. After Tupac Shakur though.
