We're All Gonna Die Man

So every year I haul out We're All Gonna Die Man for the first snowfall. He's a local type everyone here knows. Rumor has it we'll be pelted by an inch tonight in the Cincinnati area. You can be sure the lines at Kroger are twenty deep as we speak. Don't these people keep any toilet paper in their houses as a matter of course?

Snow panic is our favorite winter passtime here. During the anthrax scare after 9/11 I drew a cartoon of a Cincinnatian relieved to find that the white powder he encountered was anthrax instead of snow. Everyone outside the area thought I'd mixed up the caption. Locals got it.

As for me, I'm spending the evening cozily holed up in my downtown studio clearing off my desk and hoping -- hoping -- another editorial cartoon idea strikes me so that I can draw it tonight and stay under the covers in the morning.

Walter O'Malley in the Hall of Fame while Gil Hodges is still out. Beyond parody.

No, see, it's about snow and how people get all freaked... oh, never mind.

Oh, yeah. (He looks just like O'Malley though...)

Sorry, didn't mean to neglect acknowledging another good one (or to become one of those annoying sports fan blog cloggers).
Keep up the good work!

PS Hope you can dig your way to the Enquirer offices by April or May; your dog sled prowess may come in handy.

Seems like his mouth gets bigger every year! I love these cartoons. My favorite is still one from a long while back ... the man huddled in his basement surrounded by canned goods while the radio forecasts "1-3 inches expected," or something like that.

The basement one is one of my favorites as well - I think you can find it somewhere on Jim's archives. I keep a copy of it hanging around.

Oh Jim, you made my day! I never thought I would have a "snowboot" emergency for my 8 year old son who seriously suspected going to school without snowboots, on the first day of snow just might cause him unjust social angst!

Love your work! Next sketch? How bout a 'psychic friends network for business initiatives'? ;D

WASHINGTON - Air travelers face a high risk of a catastrophic collision on U.S. airport runways because of faltering federal leadership, malfunctioning technology and overworked controllers, congressional investigators said Wednesday.

You should see "snow panic guy" the southern version. for some reason when snow is forcasted there is a run on milk & bread. i always wondered what people do with all that left over milk & bread when the snow doesn't come or it just rains a little.
