Anthony Weiner for President?

Unsubstantiated rumors circulating the web claim embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner might turn the tables on his detractors by running for the nation’s highest office.

Bill Clinton set the bar on sexual chicanery in the White House during his Lewinsky affair — but fostered a great economy at the same time. Perhaps there’s a connection of talent here, one beneficial to Rep. Weiner’s potential comeback.

Satire/news website IUDEXonline just uploaded former CRACKED Magazine Publisher Dick Kulpa’s “Top Ten List” of possible slogans Weiner may wish to use during any potential Presidential run.

These are based on famous slogans from past elections. “Weiner’s the One” was borrowed from Richard Nixon’s 1972 campaign, and the obvious “A Weiner in every Bun” is derived from the famous Herbert Hoover “Chicken in every pot” slogan. There are eight more, one of them inspired by an Alice Cooper hit song!

Is Al Qaida Plot Causing Speaker Boehner to Cry?

John Boener weeps again

House Speaker John Beohner's loose tearducts are beginning to irritate some people.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — They vowed to turn American cheers into tears, and it looks like Al Qaida is succeeding, say sources, who claim to have uncovered a bizarre terrorist plot designed to turn U.S. officials into crybabies. Oddly enough, it appears U.S. Speaker of the House John “Boo-Hoo” Boehner is their prime target.

Speaker Boehner allegedly broke down twice as he spoke during a recent commencement exercise in the nation’s capital, according to major news organizations. If true, this is the latest in a series of crying jags besetting the prominent U.S. official, stemming from victory speech wails to a breakdown on the TV show “60 Minutes.” Other weeping incidents have also occurred in his recent past, according to press reports.

But there may be cause for all this: The unnamed sources claim a mystery parcel — filled with onions — was found “in close proximity” to Boehner’s podium. Other evidence has also been found, they add.

But “terrorist plots” may not be the culprits. A psychic claims Boehner’s propensity for crying stems from an alleged rejection by girl playmates back when he was a boy.

In a recent alleged incident, several key congressmen supposedly chastised Boehner , comparing their pit bulls, German Shepherds and Dobermans to an alleged poodle in the Speaker’s possession, and at one point Boehner began to cry. Feeling sorry for their colleague, the offending representatives backed Boehner for Speaker of the House.

This satirist has not found any evidence of any poodle in Boehner’s possession, and attempts to reach key people went unanswered. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was said to be “snickering too much” to comment.

“Speaker (John) Boehner is part of the line of succession to the U.S. Presidency,” warns an outsider. “Whatever is ailing him, be it Al Qaida plots, onions, hemorrhoids or defacto emotional issues, he needs to “man up” and get this resolved before America starts to look like it’s run by a bunch of sissies. Perhaps an on-off spigot attached to each eye will do it.

Captain Cartoon Unveils Commemorative Charlie Sheen Caricature

BOYNTON BEACH — South Florida caricature artist Captain Cartoon just released his latest celebrity caricature!

Charlie Sheen takes the spotlight in yet another celeb sketch by the Florida caricaturist, in a digital drawing requested by long time friend and former CRACKED Magazine writer-cartoonist Terry Copeland.

“Charlie had it coming, that’s for certain,” said the Captain, who lamented that he should have done this two weeks earlier. “Better late than never,” he added. Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, Shaun White, Justin Bieber, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and others have also been etched into “Captain Cartoon immortality.” Moammar Ghadafi most recently made the cut, as did Donald Trump.

Sheen’s  been making waves recently over a number of seemingly endless squabbles in an almost “Andy Kaufman-like” scenario. “I expect this image, featuring reminders from Sheen’s recent tiffs (provided by Copeland), will stay timely for some time, and I’ll be adding more as he continues to erupt,” says the Captain.

Captain Cartoon, aka Dick Kulpa,  is former publisher of CRACKED Magazine, former editor of Weekly World News, and the creator of Bat Boy. He’s drawn well over 30,000 caricatures in South Florida alone, and recently launched his “Captain Cartoon Celebrity Caricatures Crusade.”

“Eventually, celebs won’t be complete unless they’ve been caricatured by Captain Cartoon, quips the Florida cartoonist, illustrator of the Starlette Universe feature.

Final Packers VS Bears Cartoon Posted

Final 2010 season bears=packers cartoon

Packers defensive players B.J. "Freezer" Raji and Sam Shields made game-saving plays during the Bears-Packers slugfest.

Here’s my season finale cartoon commentary of the Bears Packers game, which the Bears lost by a single touchdown, 21-14.

Oversized Packer B.J. (“The Freezer”) Raji made for a great cartoon visual, so he gets center stage — particularly due to his significant interception/TD.

I chose NOT to spotlight Bears third-string QB Caleb Hanie over his three touchdown passes, given that one of them went to the wrong team. Besides, Hanie saved the Bears from total em-bear-assment by getting points on the board. Seriously, he showed some good stuff — and may have a great future.

I believe Bears QB Jay Cutler made a wise — if not tough — decision to not return after he injured his knee (assuming he, and not the doctor, made that call.) When one knows one cannot “do his best,” — and an entire team rides on his performance — what other choice could have been made? No cartoon slam there (other than his detached head bouncing through the field.)

All in all, it was a great game, and one worth watching.

Classic Green Bay Packers VS Chicago Bears cartoons posted online

Captain Cartoon, aka Dick Kulpa, is former publisher of the teen humor-satire CRACKED Magazine, former editor-art director for Weekly World News, and has drawn three syndicated comic strips. His “Draw Play” football cartoon appeared in the Chicago Bear Report from 1988-1999.

The BIG game is drawing near! We’re not referring to the Super Bowl, but the “Super-Duper Bowl,” pitting the Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers!

To commemorate the occasion, South Florida caricaturist/cartoonist Captain Cartoon is posting vintage Green Bay Packers VS Chicago Bears cartoons on his website! These originally appeared from 1988-1999 in the weekly Chicago Bear Report newspaper, published by former Bears star Doug Buffone.

The Captain was not always happy with the Bears' play.

“Working for the Bear Report was a challenge,” says the cartoonist. “I had a limited window of time after each game to draw up a cartoon commentary and either fax or modem it to the newspaper for publication the next morning,” he says. “And night games were the roughest.”

“I also worked full time as a Weekly World News editor and art director, and for three of those years I simultaneously drew the nationally-syndicated cartoon strip Ghost Story Club.” he said.

“Some of the cartoons are funny, others, subtle,” says the Captain. “One cartoon shows just how “hot” the Packers played that day — I drew a devil’s pitchfork burning a Bear player’s rear.”

“I worked with two outstanding editors at the Bear Report, Michael Polzin, and later, Larry Meyer. I was given significant leeway to implement my own ideas, though I suspect drawing toilet paper stuck to Mike McCaskey’s foot (after Mike Ditka was released) didn’t make me any friends in the front office,”  the Captain said.

So if you’re awaiting the pending “Packer Massacre”, check out those golden oldies! Additional archive cartoons are being posted each day, before “the mother of all football games,” and the Captain plans to create a brand new cartoon comment after the game!

And if you’re looking to get a digital or hard copy caricature of yourself or your kids, Captain Cartoon has posted samples of those works — and how to get them — on the site. Just click the caricature!

Cartoon Billboard Worked!

The 37-foot-long cartoon billboard mounted in Port St. Lucie, Florida, helped the police union-backed candidate win the city’s November 2 Mayoral race.

The mammoth cartoon took city officials to task over frivolous spending in the wake of dozens of police layoffs, and generated a ton of controversy. While a vocal minority took the caricaturistic work to task as “frivolous” and “immature,” election results proved that a solid “comfortable” majority “got the message.”

While it may never be known as to the measure of impact this cartoon monstrosity had on voters, “it was very much out there,” says the artist, “and we now know it didn’t hurt;-)”

Drawn by veteran political and promotional cartoonist Dick Kulpa, noted for achieving favorable results from his cartoon work, it’s the third major cartoon billboard to appear in Florida during the past 5 months. “This serves as ongoing proof effective cartoon advertising works,” says Kulpa.
