This Is the Best Email About Pima County Supe Ally Miller's Crazy Links to Bogus Website

Posted By on Wed, Jun 1, 2016 at 4:05 PM

Admittedly, you have to grok Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller, the AZ Daily Independent (and in particular, what they call cartoons) and the recent Arizona Daily Herald dustup to appreciate the brilliance, but if you do ... well, Gerald gets all the wrong stuff exactly right in this pitch to Arizona Daily Independent loon-in-chief Loretta Hunnicutt:

Dear Miss Loraina Hunnicutt,

I am a big fan of your cartoons, and I would like to submit 1 here. I look at all your cartoons and my dad got me photo shop and I learn it at school. I am getting an B in my computer drawing class.

I did it in the style of your cartoons and it is about a funny story you have been reporting and so have the news other people.

If you need me to explain it here goes - in Star Wars Episode IV (a New Hope), Obi-Wan Kanobe says to the stormtroopers "These are not the droids you are looking for".

Everyone loves Star Wars jokes, so this one is funny.

But in my joke, it's about how Ali Miller and Tim Deloris are pretending not be Jim Falcon, even though everyone knows that the Arizona Daily Herald was really Gerald Falcon. John Hucelbarry and Chuck Winchester are in the back ground. Andf I put in a saguaro and deathstar.

If you don't want to buy it, even though it fits your style, I am offering it to the Tucson Weekly, or Tucson Sentimental or Northeast Explorer, which I have cced to show that I'm serious.

You can use it for only $74.99, which I think is cheap. I will take $49.99 if I retain synication rights.

Gerald

PS Do you have summer internship? I need a job until school star.

PS Would it be funnier if it said "This is not the Milenium Falcon Your Looking for?"

PS Here is a graphic to show you that other peole think its funny.

Oh, and Star cartoonist Dave Fitzsimmons, who offered this encouraging reply:

You, too, may have talent.

Hunnicutt sent the standard rejection letter:

Thanks Gerald. Unfortunately we don’t pay for opinions because well — they are like a$$#@!% - everyone has one. However, we have done Obi in the past and the cartoon below is set for this Sunday. Enjoy!

A persistent Gerald makes a second pitch:
Okay, thanks Lorena,

Maybe then I could show you some photo shop tips and have a payed internship just for the summer.

Gerry

P.S. Did you think of that comic before I sent mine? With all do respect, it looks a lot like you may be coping me.
