The latest editorial cartoon from The Onion. It's funny because... wait, I don't get it.

Rainbows and pink I can understand, but what self-respecting homo signed us up for unicorns?
Hrumph. Had to be one of those Birkenstock dykes.

Rod, you may be forgetting to consider the source. The Onion's editorial cartoonist is just about my favorite thing on that site.

Karen: Who signed us up for unicorns? Neal Patrick Harris!

Oh, also note that "Kelly" stole the "mincing" pose from that NY Post cartoonist.

Good stuff! The crying Statue of Liberty who appears in every cartoon is my favorite, and, of course, the "cartoonist at his desk" thing is brilliantly stolen from Tom Toles.

Come on, Zippie... don't you remember the Unicorn Song? Margie Adam?

Seeing is believing in the things you see...

Remember: the Onion reserves the right to make fun of everybody. Deal with it.

Haw, OK, I didn't realize that "Kelly" is, in fact, Ward Sutton, a cartoonist whose work I have loved for a long time. He did a lot for the later Spy Magazine, and became immortal by doing the animated credits for Strangers with Candy.

The Onion editorial cartoons are deeply conceptual. This might shed some light:

I'm not normally a fan of slogan T-shirts (they don't go well with big tits, in my opinion) but I want one that says "THE GAYS".

And obviously the cartoon is a spoof, since no real gay would begrudge a girl her unicorns. Actually, with regard to some little girls I've met, you wouldn't dare.

This whole discussion is completely incomprensible to this PSP admirer.

I have heard some winger types bemoaning the fact a perfectly good word 'gay' has been co-opted by HOMOSEXUALS!!! Can't remember who specifically. Anyway, since most wingers are always so happy and gay, it makes you wonder why they care.

Oh, please please pretty please, can I have one of those T shirts too??

People have been whining about this since the modern definition became widely known. Which is to say, for about forty years. Of course, to those who weren't completely innocent, "gay" has had an alternative sexual meaning for centuries, although often more to do with prostitutes.

With all the odd messages thrown together here, the thing I find most disconcerting is that knees, elbows and shoulders look like nipples.

Lulu,
Do you honestly think that I am up on retro lesbian music?
It's that unicorny shit that has made me avoid lesbian music all my life.
