In a desperate ploy to regain past levels of productivity, the metacartoonist resorts to single-panel gag strippery to preserve
at least the semblance of a comic -- and yet, driven by desperation as this action necessarily was, the result is palpably masterful,
the interplay between iconic Man and Woman counterpointing the interplay between knee-jerk patriotism and the cynicism we all miss
from, as Mark Russell puts it, "the good old days, when George Dubya was stupid."
The script used to make this toon:
<cartoon height="300" width="400" rowformat="1"> <panel> <character name="hick"/> <character name="chick"/> <caption location="top left" fgcolor="grey">God bless America!</caption> <caption location="bottom right" fgcolor="blue">Why? Did it sneeze?</caption> </panel> </cartoon>
