More "Sexy" Halloween Costume Suggestions

You’re neither humane nor resourceful, but I still can’t resist you.

Forget the witches, goblins, Frankensteins and zombies.
Tramps, Cinderellas, pirates, angels and gypsies.

"Sexy" Halloween Costume Suggestions

Every year there are more choices for "sexy" Halloween costumes available for purchase. While mainly for women, men have their choices too. The word "sexy" really should be replaced with the word "slutty." And though there are many slutty outfits out there, here are some that were missed.

My thanks for Sparkle Plenty for coming up with "Sexy Crazy Cat Lady" and to Kate for "Sexy Anthropologist."

"Let me be the bicycle for your fish"
(and no that's not a vagina joke)

"We both agree that you can never have too much pussy."
(Ouch, that joke hurt.)

"You can observe me in my natural habitat any time you like."

Available in Blue or Red

Dr. Jimmy 72

I was working on an idea where I would reboot Dr. Jimmy and place the characters in the future. Sort of a Dr. Jimmy version of "Futurama." That explains Dr. Jimmy's talk of leaving the here and now for the future. I was already off the paper so I never bothered to develop the concept any further.

Dr. Jimmy 71

This was the last Dr. Jimmy strip to appear in the Daily Beacon. I had two more strips drawn and ready to go that would have been my official farewell, but the paper wouldn't print them. I will post them later this week on my blog because this time the Beacon editors can't stop me. So there.

The tension between the editors and myself had gotten to be too much. They hated my strip and I hated them for hating my strip. My plan was that I would quit in protest and then outraged students would flood the Beacon offices with letters demanding my return. Of course, that didn't happen. It was just a silly cartoon strip. Students had more important things to worry about, like passing their classes. Plus, I was due for some hubris considering how I'd come to believe the strip was a much bigger deal than it was. Doing the strip was great fun while it lasted.

Dr. Jimmy 70

I believe this is the second strip where Barbara Ward, Beacon editor made an appearance. I put her in because I really liked Barbara. She pushed to have student comic strips added to the paper and was someone I always enjoyed talking to. I wouldn't have teased her so much if I didn't admire her.

Dr. Jimmy 65

This strip caused me all kinds of tsuris. The editor objected to the line in panel two that reads "and that's to get laid" and changed it, without my knowledge, to "and that's to get woman." I thought his version was more insulting than mine. We argued about it and he told me that my strip was only appropriate to appear in Hustler Magazine and not the respectable Daily Beacon. I argued back that Hustler would never take my strip because it wasn't near disgusting enough for their standards and the Beacon is a college fucking newspaper where we're supposed to air outlandish ideas and perhaps we could settle this out in the parking lot. Yeah, I challenged him to a fight because I was high and stupid. Though the editor and I didn't go out to the parking lot, I could tell that my troubles with him were just beginning.

I also ran into some minor trouble because of the last panel. All of the graffiti on the bathroom wall referred to people I knew. Most of them were friends who got a kick out of seeing their name in the strip, but the "B. Comer can't spell" was a direct reference to the guy who did the other comic strip in the Beacon. What I wanted to write was B. Comer can't draw, but I felt it was less insulting to just point out that he his strip was full of misspellings. He didn't appreciate the slight and ended up making fun of me in his strip, so I guess we were even.
