The Oatmeal: cartoonist, martyr, man.

It’s been said a thousand times before but I think it bears repeating since pathetic slobs like The Oatmeal still don’t get it: when you make unfunny, offensive jokes about people whose voice is repeatedly silenced and then accuse people of censoring you because they don’t like it, it makes you an even bigger asshole. Then again, when your only sacred cow is “your art” (which in the oatmeal’s case is bland, pedantic, and lazy) of course it’s easier to be willfully obtuse.

My vagina and my F5 key second all of this.

    I love the Oatmeal but this did not sit right with me. And then removing it and citing his own generosity? What a prick.
