I’m With Stupid

See, Wally isn’t stupid, again he’s used his simple but effective problem solving methods. I always think of “I’m With Stupid” shirts as only being used in comedies, cartoons or comics. But after a quick search of T-Shirt suppliers on the internet you would be surprised at how many designs based on this exist on shirts that you can order now.

If I made one, the arrow would swivel, so you could point it any direction, and spare yourself the embarrassment of not having it actually point at the person in your company you deem “stupid”. 😉

I might be a bit light on posting news this week because I have a contracted comic job I have to get done. But I still want to make sure to have comics all week and not have it be like last week. :(

Polar-oid: An Animated Short

Check out this wonderful little cartoon starring two young Inuits and a polar bear. It is the thesis film of animation student Meredith Gran (creator of the currently hiatustatical webcomic Skirting Danger).

    Ha ha, that’s brilliant! Wally is the king…

    I think if I was designing an “I’m with stupid” T-shirt, it would have arrows pointing in every direction you could think of, including straight up because that would be the stupidest person around for thinking of such a stupid idea for a T-shirt.

    In stupid news, an Australian Government senator, Barnaby Joyce, has proposed that we start mining Antarctica for it’s resources saying “… if Australia did not start exploiting the mineral wealth of Antarctica soon, other countries would extract minerals from the pristine continent.”

    Mr Joyce does not speak for anyone but himself.

    Man, I love Wally’s problem solving skills! 😀

    Now there’s a fine bit of lateral – or rather, inverted – thinking. Notice how Wally is tilting the arrow downward to point at Osbourne.

    I think “I’m with stupid” t-shirts should have accompanying designs, like “I’m stupid”, “I’m not stupid”, “He doesn’t mean me” or “I’m with stupider”.

    As for Mr. Joyce, his argument is of the order “I’m going to do something bad because someone else is/is going to/has done it too.” An argument that I suspect is very common amongst politicians and decision-makers everywhere.

    Heh, bear doing a headstand… I think I’d die laughing if I saw that for real.

    Incidentally Tyler- you catch the news today that polar bears and hippos have just made it onto the list of protected species?

    1/4 of all mamals are now endangered to some extent apparently. Meh.

  • http://ontherockscomics.com Tyler Martin

    Yeah AC, I saw that in one of my news feeds yesterday afternoon.

    MY STATUS: I’m posting this from another computer. My computer has been hopping on one leg ever since I first said I reloaded it. Still crashing and randomly rebooting. The last comic I did I had to do several times to get through the crashes which also corrupted the file, fun stuff. Seems the motherboard is fried. I’m off to buy a new one and a faster processor as well. So hopefully I’ll be back up later this afternoon running better than ever and have a new comic.
