Tide Pod Challenge Cartoon

Another foamer in the morgue. Tag em, bag em, then try and sweep up the bubbles. Yes, the youth are now eating soap balls for sport, and public authorities are scrambling to make sure “Generation T” doesn’t wash itself off the map while participating in the Tide Pod Challenge.

What is the challenge exactly? Eat a packet of laundry detergent, then post the pictures on the internet. Ostensibly the goal is to raise awareness for rabies, another condition that causes one to foam at the mouth.

Woman with rabies rides elevator.

Like so many public health initiatives, the one to expose the danger of Tide Pods is completely misguided, placing the blame for toxic laundry disasters on society’s eternal scapegoat, the wayward teen. Consider this:

  • Washing your clothes in toxic chemicals: acceptable use, perfectly cool!
  • Sending those same toxic chemicals down the drain: right on, no problem!
  • Allowing idiots to eat yummy soap balls and in the process extinguish themselves from society before they can grow up to be air traffic controllers, train engineers, medical imaging technicians, or simply contribute to the gene pool: bad idea, public health crisis, red alert!

This cartoonist doesn’t want your foaming face wheeling him around the nursing home someday.

And of course the whole thing begs the question – are people so lazy they can’t even measure their own detergent anymore? This is coming from a guy who grew up with powdered soap – there was NEVER a problem with that stuff.

Washing machine disaster
Powdered soap a safe alternative.

Okay, I’ll admit it’s a little sad to see teens tweeting to the Tide Corporation to ask what to do about their burning insides, but, um, really? How did you make it this far in life already?

Check in end of week for another Grinsane cartoon!

p.s. Technical question – is the cartoon clear? My wife says my Tide Pod looks like a smooshed Pepsi Can.

Devil Baby

Ah, the joy of fatherhood, of seeing the devilish fruit of one’s loins grin insanely from the baby cart. Unfortunately, most newborns look about the same which is why they so often get mixed up or swapped out in the hospital with the error discovered only years later. Although the maternity ward generally does their best to keep babies organized in plastic bins, errors do sometimes occur. Generally it’s a good idea for parents to check their newborns for satanic birthmarks, especially during planetary alignments or the presence of evil nuns or rottweilers in hospital hallways. Having your child evaluated for demonic energy by a priest is always a good idea too. Trust me, going home with a devil baby, much less the Antichrist himself (no matter how cute the grinning bugger may be), is bound to produce problems down the road!

Witch Broom

Witch Broom

This witch broom is powered on pure evil, none of that unleaded or ethanol diluted malevolence. And no gasoline, either! The reason for that should be obvious (brooms are made of straw and wood, gasoline is flammable, witches have a bad history with fire… enough said).

There is rumor in the witch world that innovative German witches are currently developing a broom powered by lunar powered batteries, but no such broom has been seen in the skies yet. In the meantime, witches will continue to fill up their dutiful transportation sticks with the good stuff, I mean the bad stuff, provided at secret filling stations across the globe.

By the way, have you ever seen a witch do a flip on a broom?

Carnivorous Plants

Even carnivorous plants have fallen victim to the rising trend of corporate food and instant gratification – and who can blame them? Let’s face it, fried ants taste better!

This image was inspired by living in Florida, which has many horrors lurking in the swamps, and not just reptilian ones like alligators and pythons. The plant kingdom has its own vegetable basket of nasty, deadly things – just read about the Manchineel tree sometime if you don’t believe me.

Plant horror is an underrated sector of the horror genre – prepare to see more creeping, snapping green things on the pages of Grinsane!

Knife Sharpening

After a busy Halloween or Friday the 13th it’s not uncommon to find one’s machete or butcher knife completely dulled out from high use, and that’s when Grinsane Blades free knife sharpening service comes in handy.

When all is said and done, killing teenagers is really not that profitable (unless you’re a movie producer), so even classic horror villains are looking to save money anywhere they can.

All Grinsane Blades asks for this fine free service is that when you are ready to purchase a new blade, you talk to someone else first. We have nothing sharp for you in our store, only soft and fuzzy things. If you need something with points, spikes, or a fine edge, there are always great deals to be had at Wal-Mart or Home Depot.

(You may be wondering why the comic says “Bob’s Blades”. This is because Bob’s Blades came under new ownership last Halloween night. Grinsane owns it now. Still looking for Bob. Sign not updated. Enough said…)

Fix Anything with Duct Tape

It’s not easy being a zombie. If you ever find yourself part of the walking dead, make sure to shamble to the closest Home Depot and stock up on the essentials. Personally, when it comes to duct tape, I’m a big fan of Gorilla Tape which I’ve used to fix a swamp cooler and cat proof a kitchen. Unfortunately, the stuff takes paint right off the walls.

It was brought to my attention on Reddit that duct taping a zombie might actually serve to armor the zombie. This is an intriguing concept. I leave you with this question to ponder: at what point does a duct tape zombie become a duct tape mummy? Does the zombie have to be Egyptian? I think a mummy is basically a zombie, but I haven’t given it much thought.

Until now.

Expect a Grinsane cartoon on this topic sometime in the future.

Once again, let it be known that werewolves along with all other canines are not allowed on the grass during the reseeding effort. The lawn is still absolutely tanked after the massive LARP war that took place outside of the Grinsane studio several months ago. The owner is a real stickler about this. Please follow the rules, lycanthropes, and do your killing in the forest or the dog park. This is your last warning before we break out the hose!

Witch Black Cat Adoption

Witch Black Cat Adoption

An easy choice for any self respecting witch, especially with Garfield playing the violin in the front row. Historically, a witch would not go to the pet adoption center in search of a familiar, but today things have changed, and one can indeed find a soul mate / minion / accomplice / master of darkness at the pound.

They say black cats have a harder time getting adopted because people think they are evil. Well, here’s some breaking news for any of you who would reject a cat on the basis of color: black cats aren’t evil, you’re just stupid! People are evil, and cats are just cats. Except for the one in this cartoon. Yeah, he’s definitely evil. You’ll be seeing more of him.

So yes, sometimes a black cat is actually evil. Just don’t be going around stereotyping, okay? Any cat has the potential to be evil, especially as the litterbox or avian wildlife is concerned. I think a fair way to state the issue would be to say that black cats are not as a rule any more evil than any other color of cat. I’ve know a few orange stinkers, too, and my current torty is definitely casting spells around the house.

Don’t be a cat racist! Black cats matter, too!

Vampire Burnt by Sunlight

Even undead moms are still full of advice! Its good advice, too, if you are a young vampire child who wants nothing more than to run outside at high noon and rock on the teeter totter with the other children. Sorry, Vlady, it don’t work that way! Listen to your vampire mom, she’s been around the castle a few times.
