Hey, Sean, how about "Camilla Toilet-Bowles" for next week? I'm just giving you that one for free

I haven't picked on reprehensible New York Post editorial cartoonist Sean Delonas in a while -- mostly because it's so easy -- but this week he has truly out-outdone himself with not one, not two, not three...oh, wait, no, it is three...still, that's a hell of a lot...editorial cartoons about how unattractive he finds Camilla Parker-Bowles. And he didn't even draw a cartoon for the other two days of the week!




But lest we see Mr. Delonas as a one-issue cartoonist, he throws several other barbs in today's offering as well, including a not-dated-in-the-slightest reference to Bill Clinton as a horndog, as well as a "Dogocrat" peeing on a taxpayer to signify...something, I'm sure. Classic.

There's certainly a whiff of sexism in his cartoons, too. Charles isn't exactly a looker, yet it's Camilla who's depicted as a witch, a horse, and a dog.

Geez, weeks without any Delonas-bashing, a Cross review that peters out after Part 2... You've really been slacking off on the snark. I never should have introduced you to WEBBoggle*.

*Especially since you always kick my ass from here to Peoria.

Plus the Camilla = horse thing was already done. they've been selling t-shirts with her hairstyle on a horse for quite a while now.

Camilla has a perfectly nice, ordinary face. And while anyone in the public eye is an automatic target for lampooning, this guy certainly seems rather obsessed. Do you think the cartoonist is perhaps a Diana-the-Airhead fan who still feels betrayed by That Woman?

I don't even get "Lawyerdor." Now, is that because it's incredibly stupid or because it looks like a pig?

Lawyerdor is supposed to be two dog asses, right? Still not entirely sure what that means.

And what's with the Charlie Chan Asian stereotype on Sharpton's lap? Wait, is that suposed to be Ferrer? I'm so confused.

How about a picture of Delonas's head on the body of a froofy dog. "The Shih-tzy Cartoonist".

Doesn't it kill the joke when the characters need labels? (I especially like "TAX-PAYER" — that's exactly how I look!)

It took me forever to figure out that was Ferrer, too. It's confusing because Delonas is making fun of Ferrer's terrible nearsightedness, which isn't even remotely funny.

I hate to be a conspiracy theorist (okay not really I love it) but...I have noticed the "media" has really been bashing Chuck and Camilla ever since he started talking about real issues (like global warming) during this visit. Its been everywhere! As soon as he opens his mouth about the issues they steer him back to the fluffy questions or try to bring up old news.

Wow, those are some misogynist cartoons! Quick, I need a Six Things to wash the nasty taste out of my brain.

And Lawyerdor? Is that a play on "Labrador"? Wow, that's surpassingly clever wordplay. As is the riff on the popular representation of lawyers as having no heads, just a pair of asses. Not to mention the association between lawyers and Central Park. It's so funny, Francis, are you kicking yourself that you didn't come up with this one first?

Truthfully? The Clinton hound can hump my leg any old time.

Maybe it would be more obvious if it was "Lawyersdor." Or if it looked less like a pig.

Al Sharpton looks like Buddha with a fake Groucho mustache and a powdered wig. I personally don't remember Sharpton's hair and mustache being two different colors, but whatever.

And what's with the Fritz the Cat and Witch from Snow White rip-offs ("Clinton Hound" and first cartoon respectively)? Can't you get sued for doing that?

Hey, look, Delonas may have his flaws, but you gotta admit he does nice crosshatching. That must count for something.
