    For the record, on behalf of large, hairy and (occasionally) naked men everywhere, I officially take umbrage!

  2. Uncle E says:

    It's a shame you're not still working for the RS, Phil. I would have LOVED to see this on their editorial page!! Very funny and subversive stuff. Reminds me a bit of Al Jaffe.

    • Philbert says:

      Yeah, but then nobody would have seen it!
      And thanks for the Jaffe comment… way, way, way out of my league but thank you.
      Oh, and to all my friends, er, friend, at the RS… sorry for the snarkiness. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

    They may need love, but mostly, they need CLOTHES!

  6. Kathryn Gessner says:

    Funny! I do wonder . . . perhaps there is insufficient frost in Anderson?

  7. Greg Pate says:

    Love that little squirrel, Phil!

  8. J P Adams says:

    Yep… that Thanksgiving Ball's Ferry Sausage Trot sure looks like a lot a fun! I'm going to mark it 'Turkey Week' on my 2010 calender.

    Philbert…very funny toon! I'm glad you don't still work for the daily tissue, the Searchlight. Your talents shine here on A News Cafe.

    I and my family will be looking forward to next year's running of the big hairy men in Anderson.

  11. Troy Hawkins says:

    Could you let me know when the Sausage Trot is next year I want to participate!

  12. AuNaturale says:

    Great toon, Phil!

    Anderson and Ashland are both in the State of Jefferson, but look at what law they are debating up there. Boy howdy they sure are different….

  13. Ann Webber says:

    I am with Troy, although I do not want to participate, would love to observe. Snicker, snicker!

  14. TheBob says:

    Funny and current, Phil. Must be something about the road name that draws them……..makes ya kinda wonder what's happening on Hooker Creek Road…

  15. RGlenn says:

    Thanks, Philbert

    I needed a little humor today….

    It's my birthday and what a birthday gift.


  16. Jim Britton says:

    I'm surprised that San Francisco does'nt have this as a tradition!

  17. Judy Darting says:

    I can't stop giggling………… :- ] I live in Anderson, but I missed the Sausage Trot. Will there be a women"s division, (Melon trot) next year? I qualify, except it would be a slow stroll because of a bad back and there is the danger of giving myself a black eye!

    A Sausage Trot in winter? One word…shrinkage…(thank you, George Costanza)…

  19. jg says:

    My 10 year-old son walked around repeating large, hairy, naked man all day yesterday. He then asked why they don't put a sign down there on I-5 that has a picture of Big Foot and a "xing" logo. I am still laughing about this.

  20. Linda Russell says:

    I don't know about everyone else, but I'd like to thank that naked guy for all the laughs. Hilarious cartoon! Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  21. D. Nethery says:

    Phil, These are the type of cartoons I enjoyed when you were part of "The Flying Penguin." I miss that little paper and will be ordering the Flying Penguin Scrapbook. Was so pleasantly surprised to see it for sale in the 'After Five" paper. I will give a couple away for Xmas presents.

  22. Grammy says:

    Was this a self portrait?

    Hey P.F. a classic!!!, I've been waiting impatiently for your take on the guy who was arrested for moo-ing at his neighbor.
