Guard: Here at Itchy and Scratchy Land we're just as concerned about violence as you are. That's why we're always careful to show the consequences of deadly mayhem so that we may educate as well as horrify.
Marge: When do you show the consequences? On TV that mouse pulled out that cat's lungs and played them like a bagpipe, but in the next scene the cat was breathing comfortably.
Guard: Just like in real life.

Strangely enough, I analyzed comic writing this week:

Ha Ha Bleeping Ha

And I got paid. It's not itchy and scratchy, but it's alright.

Actually, I wrote a humor book and Andy Borowitz gave me a cover blurb. (Yes..I am bragging - but I'm a jerk.)

I'd link to it on A,mazon if I could figure out an easy way to do it. Which is ironic because its about the effect of technology on the New Economy.
