Curse you, Emmitt Smith
My wife, Marcia, and I started watching the Dancing with the Stars show weeks ago. Much like American Idol it quickly became a mainstay in our house. I never expected Emmitt Smith to win the whole thing but there you go. This cartoon kind of came out of the blue. I was in the midst of thinking about an O.J. cartoon when it popped in. Don't ever ask me exactly where the ideas come from because there was absolutely no reason for those two subjects to cross-pollinate but somehow they did. This is the result. I'll save the O.J. cartoon for later and instead print this one now, on Saturday, because it's a little more reader friendly and because the Emmitt phenomenon won't last as long as the O.J. one. Which kind of makes you sick doesn't it. But then O.J. always makes me sick.
I can relate to a cartoon like this. I dance much more like Jerry Springer than Emmitt Smith.
