I'm not much of a sports fan, but I did notice the PGA has its Open Championship going on, and while you wouldn't think a game in which the winner has the leastamount of strokes would inspire me, I have done golf-related cartoons. Like so:
Here's the original sketch for that-- you can see I decided the guy should be a lefty.
And while we're in Scotland, let's stop off at that magical, mystical place--
It seems like such a natural thing to do that I'm surprised we don't see more of it in spanking pictures, videos, and cartoons-- the Spankee trying to block the Spanker's hand to prevent or modify her seat-searing!
Of course, this is usually a token resistance; you can tell when the ladies are less than serious about fending off the swats--
even during a semi-serious spanking for this stowaway from her sailor!
The girls will often giggle in movie publicity photos meant to show how fun and frisky this film might be!
That's young Joan Crawford giggling at James Murray's efforts for 1928's "Rose Marie!" Maybe he would have had a different reaction if he'd used a wire hanger?
Here's maestro Al Siegel instructing protegee Connie Russell in 1940 during the rehearsals for "Unholy Partners!"
And to promote the fluffy Bing Crosby picture "College Humor" in 1933, Jack Oakie put Mary Kornman over his lap! She looks a little more concerned about it.
Naturally, if the gal is playing a role, she'll want to evoke the audience's suspension of disbelief and make them wonder about her hiney!
Hey, there's a new Tarzan movie out now, "The Legend of Tarzan," and it's supposed to be pretty good! I'll go catch the matinee this afternoon.
Saturday afternoons when I was a kid, the local TV station ran all the MGM Tarzan movies between seemingly interminable car dealer commercials with the screaming Yahoo dashing down the lot drawing prices on the car windshields.
Surprisingly, I never read the original Edgar Rice Burroughs books until I was in my late thirties. I read the first four, and then sort of lost interest before our hero started going to lost civilizations and all that.
And yes, not to ruin the joke, but the reason Tarzan didn't have a beard is that he used his knife (which compensating tool and a loincloth he, er, acquired from a hapless passing native as a young ape-man) to shave because he'd discovered he was a different animal than his simian companions and wanted to accentuate the difference! You can never know too much trivia, it could win you money on TV or free drinks.
There have been, of course, a world of Tarzan illustrators since the early 1900's, and my favorites include Frank Frazetta--
--and Joe Kubert!
Bob Lubbers drew a nice scene for the newspaper strip--
--And I'll rerun my version for any of you who haven't seen it, or maybe would like to snicker at it again!
