Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?

Artist's Statement

I owe this idea to Jim Fisher (model for "The Miracles of Jim," among others, who proposed a massive pornography drop over Afghanistan to outrage and demoralize its fundamentalist elements and trigger mass defections from the Taliban. Geekily, I have continued the same pattern of porn magazine titles I began in "The Baltimore City Library's New Pornography Exchange Program," in which I alter only one letter of each title to create the next porn magazine title ("Smut--Slut--Slit"). It's fun. You should try it.

This is only a humorous drawing and contains no political message. I have only the deepest respect for the noble tenets of fundamentalist Islam and the fine products of the American pornography industry.

Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I notice I'm like the only cartoonist who's even trying to be funny since September 11th. The rest have gone all mawkish and reverential, stooping at times to sentiments worthy of For Bettr or For Worse or  Family Circus. I submit that this is not our job, and the rest of you ought to get back to work. Now more than ever, we are needed. There's a war on.
