JAY WARD

1920-1989

Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Training: University of California at Berkeley Harvard University

Notable Works: Crusader Rabbit (1950), Rocky and Bullwinkle (1959), Dudley Do-Right, Peabody and Sherman, Fractured Fairy Tales, George of the Jungle, Captain Crunch, Quisp. 

Cartoonist, animator, producer, and self-described eccentric, Jay Ward was the mind behind Jay Ward Productions - a company that made iconic characters through the relatively new medium of television. As well as creating the look for such advertising characters as Captain Crunch, Ward’s stylistic approach also brought to life the comedic and subversive world of Rocky and Bullwinkle, including nemeses Boris Badanov and Natasha Fatale, and ancillary characters like time-traveling Peabody and Sherman, and Canadian mountie Dudley Do-Right.

Reblog this if you’ve ever cosplayed or dressed up as any of the Marx Brothers

It doesn’t matter what it was for (Halloween, a party, just felt like it). I want to see how many other people have done this.

Also feel free to add which brother(s).

fieldofashes asked: I thought that Juggalo was a gender-neutral term.

"Juggalo" refers to mainly male ICP fans, whereas "Juggalette" is a female ICP fan. I’ve seen enough vinyl car decals on the road to know there’s a gendered difference.

But it could be that “Juggalo” has progressed to something like calling a mixed bag of friends “guys”. It could very well be all-encompassing ICP fans nowadays. But I really couldn’t tell you for certain. I’m not entirely certified in Jugganomics.

I feel such pity for the homestucks who didn’t know faygo was an actual thing, or who live in places where you can’t find it, when I’m over here in Michigan like

As someone who lives in michigan, I can say that this is 10000000% true

…Does this mean there’s now a game called “Homestuck or Juggalo/ette?”

Just days after we marched in Detroit with Netroots Nation, National Nurses United, and Mark Ruffalo, this happened.

Anonymous asked: why do slavs squat so much?

Because sitting on the floor, stone and so on gives you cancer!

It has been proven without a doubt with centuries of research done in the Slavic lands that sitting on the floor/grass/stone or any other cold surface will cause you to “get a wolf.” (Nie siadaj na kamieniu/betonie/mokrej trawie, bo dostaniesz wilka!)  We can only speculate as to what this wolf is, and we hope it’s not a tiny pack of predators nesting in your nether regions.  Our researchers theorize that this wolf you will undoubtedly acquire will be in the form of a bladder infection, hemorrhoids, or inflammation of the nerve roots.  We squat for health. 

I can see the public health campaign posters and slogans now

OH MY GODS.

My grandparents always talked about how my extremely Polish great-grandmother (all mother’s side) used to always say if you sat on something hard or cold “you’d get a cold in your butt”. And so they always discouraged it.

NOW I UNDERSTAND. …I THINK.
