I was expecting a bunch of "LOL UR GEY, BUSH," "NO UR GEY PELOSI," but the first three I read were actually funny and relevant.

Thanks, this is fun.

But what is with all the noses not matching the shades of the rest of the faces? And Barack Obama really does not look like Barack Obama.

The noses are odd.

And stupid fun is fun.

Tired memes!

Frankly the characters noses look really weird and gross. I really don't like the style, and they don't have a large enough variety of figures.

Although this reimplementation of a famous Russian joke was funny, but only because I got the reference.

Huh, my "tired memes" thing dropped most of the first panel dialogue; the democrat had a lengthy stereotyped spiel as well.

There goes my Pulitzer.

That was hugely fun! And I got an editor pick!

(Mind you - I did do about 10 of the things, currently averaging about 4.2 - w00t - and here comes the hubris in 5...4...3...)

The scoring system is quite sticky as well - I am embarrassed to admit I refreshed a few times on the author option to see how my efforts were doing.

The political caricatures themselves are a I tended to use the other ones as you could ignore their more overtly political meanings if you chose.

Neat concept - well executed.
