Many Mothers

Many Mothers

Mother’s Day is…you know what, go for it Pirate.

Tomorrow is a special day. It’s when we say thanks to our mothers…but no one else’s for some reason. I always wondered about that. Can’t we be nice to all mothers? I mean, at least say ‘thanks for putting up with an annoying kid all this time?’ Well, maybe we shouldn’t spread the love around in case our moms get mad at us. Thanks, Mom.

Easter Expectations

Easter Expectations

The Easter Bunny is a really shady figure when you think about it.

It’s official, Pirate Blog has hit rock bottom. We’ve descended to scatology in our jokes now! But really, what would you expect when you have a holiday celebrating a weird bunny that gives out eggs?

Well, that’s popular culture. Easter also celebrates the rebirth of a certain religious figure, but I can’t draw people yet. Happy Easter!

Valentine’s Tax

Valentine's Tax

True love is edible.

Valentine’s Day is a chocolate tax. Oh sure, there’s flowers, hearts, confessions, and so on, but let’s get real here. The chocolate industry is the real winner on this holiday. Pirate seems to understand the commercialism of the holiday, or at least understands that threats gets her free chocolate.

Caroling Curse

Thus began the Christmas Carol massacre.

Thus began the Christmas Carol massacre.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve grown to hate Christmas carols the longer I’ve been alive. And no offense — especially in American supermarkets.

I can’t tell you how painful it is to hear the same songs on repeat over…and over…and over…until all you want to do is destroy Christmas like the Grinch.

Water Heater Woes

Good thing the heater's not turned on.

Good thing the heater’s not turned on.

Things aren’t actually this bad, but I do have a leaky water heater. In point of fact, it’s just a constant drip from the drain valve connection. Annoying, but doesn’t affect anything. Too bad I have to wait till Monday for a repair person.

See, this is why I hate Thanksgiving.

Halloween Night

Sometimes I wonder whether monsters dress up as people on Halloween. How do we know each costumed person we see at the end of the street is really human and/or alive? Oh well. I hope you’re all eating candy and having a great Halloween! (Also, drawing desktop backgrounds is really hard. Just saying.)

Sometimes everything is just as it seems.

Costume Choice

Some costumes are not appropriate even for Halloween. Naturally disturbing imagery isn’t good for the kids, but costumes with guns are probably a really bad idea as well. Still, it surprises me how scary some of the costumes are. Staying inside this Halloween.

These costumes are PG-13. At least.
