Who To Blame

Memo to me: OLDER AGAIN.
Time for the You Are Dumb Dot Net birthday tradition. Sometimes I put a fair amount of effort into photoshopping an image. Sometimes I throw up a fern and some links to past columns. Sometimes I ignore the tradition in favor of some vitally important mocking.
This year, I have an image that doesn't actually mean anything, but I like it anyway. It's a panel from Vertigo Comics' "Jack of Fables", issue 8, by Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges, Tony Akins, and Andrew Pepoy. The panel has context, but I like it better removed entirely from that context and reappropriated for my own.
I don't know. There's just something strangely appealing about a random, beaten man blaming his woes on my clan. This must be how Jimmy Khan of Bugfuck, Nebraska feels every time he gets to that spot in Star Trek II. You know the spot. And if you don't know the spot, show this paragraph to the nearest nerd and have him explain it to you.
