No Nuts Zone

Posted in Funny Stuff with tags , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2010 by bearmancartoons

The idea for the most recent t-shirt design from WackSack.com came from our friends up North trying to do the right thing and the media of course taking it hilariously wrong.

It seems that after complaints of two passengers, the Canadian Transportation Agency has order Air Canada to come up with a plan to accomodate those with severe peanut allergies.  It seems two people who complained to the CTA got action after not getting anywhere with Air Canada.  The CTA ruled, “people with peanut and nut allergies face significant barriers to safe travel and should be treated as having a disability. As such, all accommodations should be made to ensure their safety while travelling with Air Canada.”

The funniest part is if you clicked the link to the story on a USA Today Blog not only is the title hilarious – Air Canada ordered to give fliers a ‘nut-free’ flight option – but take a look at the accompanying picture.  Really?  The best image to go with this story is a picture of an inflated hotdog??

So we give you the lastest No Nuts design available on t-shirts, buttons, bags, etc.  Some useful ideas for who you might buy this for include:

  • Your favorite peanut allergy sufferer.  Why should they have to explain their allergies to everyone.  Let a shirt speak for itself.
  • Your favorite man in your life.  Make sure he wears this out in public with you so everyone knows who wears the pants in the relationship.
  • Your favorite lesbian.  What better way to tell a guy to f_ off in a humorous way by letting him know you aren’t interested.

Personally, I think if they want to create a “nut free” zone in the airplanes, I would be happy to seat passengers accordingly since I can point out the real nuts.  They tend to get seated next to me and want to share their entire life story with me when all I want to do is sleep.  Oh and I have a great idea for Air Canada to easily adhere to this new policy.  STOP SERVING PEANUTS.  Give out pretzels instead.

Bearman Cartoon: Harry Reid

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2009 by bearmancartoons

For my out of country readers a little background on the editorial cartoon below.

– President Obama wants a Healthcare Reform Bill passed
– Many Republicans and some moderate Dems don’t want to include a so called Public Option (whereby people can buy insurance from the government) for fear of the long term costs.
– Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced a version of the Healthcare Bill that includes a State by State opt out solution. This caused Olympia Snowe, the lone Republican who supported the commitee plan to publicly back out of her support as well as some others.

The biggest issue IMO is that the two largest areas of concern are those who want insurance who can’t get it at a reasonable rate and those who can’t withstand a major catastrophe. Now I am not economist but couldn’t the government put out a bid much like a large company for insurance companies to offer them group rates. Individuals without a company plan could get this corporate rate rather than expensive COBRA or the like. Then the government could offer a “public option” to those wanting catastrophic insurance such that it would kick in when medical bills reached a certain percent of yearly gross income.
