Gang Activity: Yesterday's News

December 21, 2006

Suggestion: read the original comic first to get a feel for the joke, then read the alternate version. You’re invited to leave your own take on the joke in our underpopulated comment section. Click here for past examples.

Bazooka Joe 24Dear Reader, Your Montag is not going to do a reformulation of this Bazooka Joe comic. It speaks on it’s own with dual meaning.

Is it a commentary on how aware some Americans are of the world around them, and current events?

Or, is it a statement on the practical value of the information infotainment the media provide?

Notnecessarilywithstanding, Time magazine came out with its ‘Person of the Year’ issue this week.

Your Montag was given the honor.

So was everybody else.

That’s right, in one of the greatest cop-outs of all Time (har-har-har) “You” have been named person of the year. In any case, in a fit of self indulgence, and as person of the year I am allowed to self indulge, here is who I think should have made the cover. (And yes, my attempt to turn Time into a supermarket tabloid, is just another feeble comment on the state of our media today.)

Comandante Agi provided the impetus and template for the half-assed Time cover project.
