Je ne fait pas ...
The Spring of 2012 saw France heading to the polls in a vote that would determine whether the people of Gaul would re-elect President Sarkozy or replace him with his main political rival, Francois Hollande.
The incumbent President was facing a man who had never held office before, yet whose personal charisma with the voters was showing him to lead in the polls right up until polling day.
Laughzilla drew this French Presidential Elections Political Cartoon for The Daily Dose to celebrate some rare coincidences about recent Presidential election coincidences in the political history of France.
Anyone who knows their French history will notice that this comic references the Principate of Andorra, which is headed by two power-sharing heads of state, one of whom is the acting President of France.
This cartoon was contributed to the cause of the #OccupyBrieBallots movement, because the Top 1% of French Cheese Eaters should not own more than half of all the stinky cheese in France.

Take the long way home
As the Passover holiday arrived, it left some Jews thinking about their neighbors afflicted by the tyrrany of their scornful dictator, Bashar Assad.
And so, Laughzilla penned this Hebrew or Syrians Fleeing Cartoon for The Daily Dose, in support of donating art to the #OccupyExodus movement, because the top 1% of refugees should not own more than half of all the mass migrations.
L'Chaim! L'Chaim! To Life! L'Chaim! 🙂
As the Jewish holiday of Passover arrived once again, in 2012 CE, Oy Vey thought it would be funny to recall one of the reasons the traditional meal is so well loved by so many who part take in the Seder. What magic ingredient makes it so wonderful? Four Cups of Wine.
This Happy Passover Wine editorial cartoon was drawn by Laughzilla and published on April 6, 2012.
Typical Despostic Humor
Kicking off April 2012 was the ongoing massacre in Syria at the hands of Bashar Assad’s armed forces. He made a mockery of the UN 6 Point Peace Plan by ratcheting up the pressure on his opponenets, just as he was supposed to be laying down his guns in a cease fire, to be started by a withdrawal of troops from town centers, and more. What happened instead was that he killed more Syrians, at a faster clip.
The Daily Dose thought to caricature this failure of diplomacy in the name of saving democracy, by burying democacy in a grave, with Assad standing above, giving the old April Fool’s phrase, in this Assad Accepts. April Fool’s Cartoon.
This editorial cartoon was drawn by Laughzilla and first published on April 1st, 2012.
super poke in the eye
Believe it or not, facebook actually tried to legally stop people from using the words face, book, wall and poke. In March 2012 it came to a head as lawyers on both sides fought it out.
To contribute art to the cause of those who want to occupy frivolous lawsuits, laughzilla created this face book wall poke cartoon, which is a cover of a book you never reads, including the 4 letter words banned on facebook, even if your friend doesn’t like it.
This editorial comic caricature lampoons the occupy frivolous lawsuits movement, with a digital jab to the retina.
Take that, Mark Z.
How's that Change working for them?
It was an unusual turnout for an odd election in Senegal. The second round of voting for the President went from disturbingly unrestful and violent, to a sweeping victory for democracy, albeit one which delivered little in the way of real change in its immediate aftermath.
Other than changing presidents peacefully, Senegal chose Mr. Sall, the former protege of Mr. Wade, to succeed Mr. Wade. Yes, it was a change of leadership, but one that leaves unanaswered many questions about the future of this once peaceful west African nation, once considered a model of a developing, peaceful democratic nation, despite its rampant corruption at the highest levels of government.
And so Laughzilla drew this Senegal Elections Cartoon for The Daily Dose on the eve of the decisive round at the polls.
Happy St. Patrick's Day
In the Middle of March, Bashar Assad kept up his killing spree, offing his own subjects at a rate of 30 or so a day, estimates indicated.
Laughzilla considered what kind of PR stumt Assad might pull if he were trying to woo more fans in Ireland, upon St. Patrick’s Day. And so, this Assad St. Patrick’s Day Cartoon came to be.
Beware or Be Where?
As history recorded, the Ides of March and the iPads of March 2012 were closely linked, chronologically.
Laughzilla pointed out the twist with a touch that can only be made by an editorial cartoonist, for The Daily Dose.
Venn Diagrams R Fun
As the Purim holiday approached in the Hebrew calendar year 5772, Laughzilla was commissioned by Oy Vey and The Daily Dose to draw a political Venn Diagram comic strip panel that would explain the current geopolitical issue of a nuclear Iran.
In this editorial cartoon, Bibi Netanyahu explains his view and Barack Obama disagrees with him.

They named names!
You might not think that there is much of a problem with proper naming systems.
However, when you think about the fact that we call ourselves Earthlings and yet we call creatures on Mars Martians, you should see an obvious problem, glaring right in your face.
To be fair, it’s not entirely your fault that you are part of the collective Earthling experiment. You didn’t name these words, did you?
Whatever your stance on the issue, know that it was first drawn in this cartoon by Laughzilla and published as the great Earthian or Marsling cartoon for The Daily Dose comic strip on February 24, 2012 which was well complemented by the Top Ten nomenclature jokes.
Yeah, it’s good to laugh, even at the cost of offending ETs or Humanoids.
