Folks. I believe that Scientology has tons of potential. And I say this not because Hollywood is always right but because I have undeniable proof that I owe my existence to aliens – more specifically to two loveable aliens, who I call Mom and Dad.
Now these two aliens don’t look all that different – they’ve got two eyes, a nose, and a mouth that’s centered below the nose; they also have two hands and two feet like everyone else…yet – they must be aliens.
You know why?
They get up early…and I mean the real-deal-early – at 3:30 AM. They beat me by 30 minutes!!! Only aliens could do that.
My father saunters into the kitchen, effortlessly prepares one dish, and that one dish tops everything that I cook after toiling for hours. Only an alien could do that.
They are now old in years, in bones, and in strength; but their spirit overflows with youth – they can’t walk a lot, they tire easily, but their love for their daughter makes them cover those hundreds of miles, disregarding the discomfort and the pain. I don’t think a human could accomplish that – they really really must be aliens!
Folks, believe it or not, we all owe our existence to aliens. Check out your set of aliens to confirm my discovery.
I must also tell you that I owe my absence here to the very same aliens, because they had come visiting after five long years. Now they have returned to their own planet, having left me refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to caricature the whole world!
The Caricaturist is ready to strike again! BEWARE!
I often wonder how tough it must be to carry the burden of the mistakes made by a whole lot of other people…and then I also wonder how much tougher it must be to zip up and not blame anyone for it, because “officially” you are the one responsible for the mess and also for the cleanup!
A few months ago when the US Congress debated whether the debt ceiling should be raised, and when Standard & Poor’s slashed the credit-rating of the US from AAA to AA+, this is exactly what went through my mind…and so, when my client sent me a requirement for a caricature/cartoon around the concept, the following caricature of a harassed Barack Obama happened 🙂
