World’s Biggest Virtual Caricature Wall of Fame Just Got Bigger — with 41 More Faces Added!

ATLANTIS, FL — Rosalita’s Tex-Mex Grill’s online caricature wall of fame now features nearly 600 faces, as drawn by South Florida caricaturist Captain Cartoon!

The caricature captain came aboard the highly popular and acclaimed Rosalita’s on Cinco De Mayo in 2010. Since then, he has drawn 100s of faces Tuesday evenings during “Kids Eat Free Night” at the highly acclaimed Mexican food restaurant

“Some places I’ve performed at actually post copies of these caricatures on their walls,” says the captain, “but this restaurant’s highly cultural decor was not conducive to it, so we posted everything on the Web.”

Not only are customers entertained and gifted with a free Captain Cartoon caricature, they get access to a ready-made digital version online. “I snap a pic of the drawing that night, usually with my Blackberry, then open it up via Photoshop and restore the photo to as near a look to the original as possible,” says the captain.

“I’ve also posted ‘how to make greeting cards from your caricatures‘ online,” he adds, “so folks get the most out of this.”

Captain Cartoon gets requests for all kinds of sketches, and savvy entrepreneurs even come in for caricatures they use for their business cards. “Why pay lots of bucks to get these done when you can come to Rosalita’s (Tuesday eves) or Duffy’s (Wednesday Eves) and get professional renditions for free?” he asks.

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!

In another breaking IUDEXonline story, the results are in on Sarah Palin’s emails, Be prepared for a shock!

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.
