Offensive comics are back

Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, November 11, 2008

This letter regards the Nov. 10 edition of the comic “The Dome Piece.”

The text for the comic reads: “The Cleveland Browns announced that rookie QB Brady Quinn will be starting for their game against the Bills next Monday. In related news, you just got an erection.”

I am astonished that this particular comic strip made its way into our dear Observer. I can only assume that the comics page editor was overtired that day. David Cavadini, you have offended my sensibilities and insulted your readers’ intelligence. Did you think that this strip could pass unnoticed?

Cavadini, you copy-pasted that first panel to create the second panel. Shame on you. Son, you have a trackball mouse and MSPaint at your disposal – don’t be ashamed to use them.
