When I noticed that a dreadful stick figure comic was winning in the Best Comic Strip category of the 2007 Weblog Awards, I decided to look into other comic strips which weren’t on the list. And I found Umbert the Unborn. It’s brilliant. Umbert is a pre-born child and the comic strip chronicles his adventures in the womb. How could any woman want to abort the cute little guy?
Personally, I find it hard to read that strip without wanting to see Umbert aborted.
They even fantasize about it:
Umbert: I’m so glad abortions are illegal. Now mommy will have to have me! Thank god… (coat hanger comes up from below).
Umbert: Uh-oh. (end of strip)
That’s pretty cold hearted. Among other complaints are that he is white, male and, gasp, a pre-born! And, being unborn, he is also, naturally, pro-life. Everything that feminists loathe rolled into one. The horror that the unborn they so desire to abort might be shown to be a living, feeling human being! The ghouls at feministing (reminds me of the lesbian practice of “fisting,” don’t ask) are rather afraid that this innocent cartoon character will persuade one of their feminazi sisters from aborting mission. Congratulations, Gary Cangemi! You’re a genius.
Another comic that might have been included on the list of Best Comic Strips would be the pro-life Faithmouse by Dan Lacey. It’s a little odd, but it might appeal to furries. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I’m still evaluating Faithmouse. It appears to be for mature audiences, so perhaps the kiddies should stay away from this one.
But be sure to check out Umbert the Unborn. It will appeal to children and adults alike. There’s a rather funny spoof of Star Trek and Star Wars going on right now. “Vile Evil Space Alien on Board.” That cracks me up!
