    @Cowicide

    So true. On the other hand, our high-minded regard for the rule of law didn’t stop us from nuking the Japanese twice.

    I can’t help but notice the resemblance between Mickey and that rich guy who’s always after Lucky Ducky. No coincidence, I’m sure.

    Oh, no! I didn’t get back in time from the Napoleonic Wars (delicious baguettes, believe it or not) to be the first to comment on this week’s Tom the Dancing Bug! Drat the luck! If only I had a way to get another chance to post this comment Like some way to travel through time. Wait a minute, a solution is coming to me! I’ll give it a try; wish me luck! -Percival Dunwoody, Idiot Time Traveler From 1909

    kinda like a cloud i was up way up in the sky and i was feeling some feelings you wouldn’t believe sometimes i don’t believe them myself and i decided i was never coming down
    just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about too small to see
    but i watched it way too long and that dot was pulling me down

    i was up above it
    i was up above it
    now i’m down in it
    i was up above it
    i was up above it
    now i’m down in it

    well shut up so what what does it matter now
    i was swimming in the haze now i crawl on the ground
    and everything i never liked about you is kind of seeping into me
    try to laugh about it now but isn’t it funny how everything works out (“i guess the jokes on me” she said)

    i was up above it
    i was up above it
    now i’m down in it
    i was up above it
    i was up above it
    now i’m down in it

    i used to be so big and strong
    i used to know my right from wrong
    i used to never be afraid
    i used to be somebody

    i used to have something inside
    now just this hole that’s open wide
    i used to want it all
    i used to be somebody

    i’ll cross my heart and hope to die but the needle’s already in my eye
    and all the world’s weight is on my back and i don’t even know why
    and what i used to think was me is just a fading memory
    i looked him right in the eye and said “goodbye”

    i was up above it
    i was up above it
    now i’m down in it
    i was up above it
    i was up above it
    now i’m down in it

    In before Percival Dunwoody makes a stupid comment

  8. jennybean42 says:

    OOh, or not.
    I actually think these cartoons are interesting, more often than not, but the fact that he needs to comment on each one makes me like them less.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Hey at least Percival hasn’t dropped spoilers from future TtDB comics. He may be an idiot, but he only comments on the comics as they come out in our local time stream.

    Come for the comic, stay for the Dunwoody! Love it.

    Has anyone filed a trademark app for “Seal Team Sex” yet?

    • OldBrownSquirrel says:

      So I pulled into a Shell Station
      They said I’d blown a seal
      I said, “Fix the damn thing
      And leave my private life out of it
      Okay pal?”

        “Abalone! You’re just being shellfish.”

        Wow, haven’t heard that one in 20 years or more.

    • SamSam says:

      Would that involve seals or sealing wax? Or both?

      “Ooooh, Osama… unseal my love envelope…”

      “My pleasure, my pretty whiskered mammal”

      Wait, what?

    • kpkpkp says:

      Jackie Treehorn holds that trademark since 1992

    • allium says:

      I think that would be handed off to Touchstone Pictures…which is technically still the House of Mouse, but having Coyote Ugly, The Rock and Veronica Guerin brought to you by Walt Disney Pictures kind of breaks the illusion.

    What’s funny is that they can’t do this.

    As I remember this was done before by some other company (probably in relation to Counter Strike, as Seal Team 6 is a playable faction on the CT side), and they were turned down.

    Also, Disney ruins everything it touches.

    soon enough, cowicide, soon enough…

    I’m going to make a porno called “Seal Team 69″.

    “No, no, it’s just ice cream!” will be a running joke through the whole movie.

    Guys… Percival Dunwoody is a /time traveler/ you _can’t_ first post him.

    of course, the Navy stopped calling them Seal Team Six in 2010, renaming the organization to United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group. So, the name was available for use.

    Urgently need sarcastic bumper sticker
    showing Mickey assasinating someone in
    front of their kids.

    And/or stencil.

    Parody is fair use, mofo.

  18. Dan Hoey says:

    In case anyone’s not following @RubenBolling on Twitter, Disney has announced it is not going to contest the Navy’s claim to the trademark.

    Of course the real reason is they are afraid of appearing in more Tom the Dancing Bug comix.

  19. Donald Petersen says:

    I realize that in all the long years I’ve been reading TtDB (1 or 2 at least), I’ve yet to see a bug named Tom dance. Could he have gone the way of Barney Google, Steve Roper, and the titular legumes in Schulz’s strip?

    America, 2011

    The populace celebrates as acts of bloody vengeance are extolled. No trial… just “raw justice” with bullets to the head in a darkened room. The American pedestal continues to crumble.

    America, 1945

    ” … The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored, because it cannot survive their being repeated. That four great nations, flushed with victory and stung with injury stay the hand of vengeance and voluntarily submit their captive enemies to the judgment of the law is one of the most significant tributes that Power has ever paid to Reason. … ”

      I think your argument is disingenuous at best.

      For one thing, Al Qaeda has yet to surrender.

      For another, we had engaged the Nazi enemy in the manner of their choosing–the same thing the Seals were doing that day in Abbottabad.

      This idea that somehow Americans of today are inferior morally or intellectually to those of the past is basically ubiquitous, this whole greatest generation crap, but my feeling is that despite inevitable setbacks the moral and intellectual progress of this country is more or less continuously forward.

      If you doubt this, think of the state of the average Southern black man while your vaunted Nuremberg trials were occurring.

        Ok, fuck it. Rule of law means nothing. Let’s ditch courts all together and just start shooting each other in the streets?

        Sound good to you, idiot?

        Actually, they were shooting people in the face with automatic weapons, and shooting women in the legs. These things aren’t generally called ‘extrajudicial’ because it’s a pretty word. We have a legal system available to use. We chose not to use it. That’s our failing, and ours alone.
