We live in strange times. Satire is dead, special interests must be appeased, and if you eat your pop-tart into the shape of a gun you are doomed. In my day, I whittled down the pointless hours of the school day drawing satirical and violent cartoons. I had no ill-intent towards anyone, I had no desire whatsoever to hurt anyone, for some reason blood and guts are hilarious to teenagers and the more outrageous the depiction the better.
On a recent visit to my parent’s house I came across a number of the aforementioned drawings from my days in 9th grade math class. Although crude in style and theme I am quite sure that if I were 14 year old middle school student in 2014 and a teacher caught a glimpse of any of these pictures I would be instantly expelled and possibly be submitted to psychological testing…
I do want to caution you 3 people who will look at this post to not strain your eyes by trying to read the horrific handwriting my 14 year-old self spilled onto this “art”.
The Acid Gun
The Super Nuke
The Clown Killer
Chinese Pickles with Wings

Imagine that you know some guy, you don’t trust him, you don’t have any confidence in him and he’s a manipulative creep. This guy draws up a plan to babysit your kids, it’s a great plan it has all sorts of important and neat features, and it’s wonderful according to him. Do you actually take the time to read his plan and weigh all the pros and cons, or do you tell him to get lost and stay away from your kids?
…That’s common core in a nutshell, as far as I’m concerned.
