A cartoonish look at life...
Next week is the 2009 World Dairy Expo, in Madison, Wisconsin and I am really looking forward to attending again. This marks my fourth year at the Expo and its one show I always really look forward to! I suppose you might wonder why I like the show so much. Well, cows just might have something to do with it. Why, without them I’d be stuck putting a white powdery substance in my coffee to “lighten” it. (YUCK!) What would I add to my oatmeal every morning? How could I have a turkey and Swiss without the Swiss? Or even worse, how about pie alamode without out the alamode? Of course I also appreciate cows for their natural beauty. I find them inspirational, which is way they appear so often in my cartoons. Now just because I have a fondness for cows doesn’t mean I’m overly infatuated with them. Please don’t go all Freudian on me. To paraphrase ol’ Sigmund, “Sometimes a cow is just a cow.” It doesn’t go any deeper than that and I resent the implication and hereby categorically deny and that I am in any way udderly obsessed!
There’s a whole herd of fun at: www.rubescartoons.com
(If by any chance you are attending the World Dairy Expo please come on by the Rubes Cartoons booth and say "Hi!" I’ll be in booth #C-1 in the exhibition hall right across from the fabulous ice-cream booth!...Oh, I’ll also be putting on my cartoony show on Oct.1st at 7:00PM at the Middleton Public Library, /files/Fall09.pdf , which is right next door to Madison. It’s free and open to the public. Please come on by and share an evening of laughs!)
