GHAAH! Now I can't get that out of my head. So completely, utterly, terribly, horrifyingly true!

No Scott! No!! Why?! Shut up!! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU!

April 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

So vile...
Yet so true...

But, but Bugs Bunny was Warner Bros not Disney. Highly confused.
But on the subject of "the Truth" I think I can only say... "Meep Meep Meep Meep!"

Well done Mr. Meyer. Now I can sleep knowing some one else has that same ridiculous fantasy.

I...I feel so naked, so bare. All my boyhood fantasies revealed!!! Scott, you're awful...and yet, correct.

Why must you reveal that many young boys were bi-curious as a result of Bugs Bunny in drag?

I understand the premise and it's fall off chair hawk up a lung and both kidneys hilarious
for the record ....
I don't find cartoon animals hot. I prefer cartoon women - like Red from those Tex Avery toons (, Little Annie Fanny ( and of course Betty Rubble dressed up like Betty Page (
Here's some more hot cartoon women (, folks, so go ahead and rub one out!

What's the first shocking truth anyone remembers that made their mind reels?
Me first - Peppermint Patty and Marcy - really weren't gay - they were just homely lonely girls who both pined after the unattainable Charlie Brown (who pined after an unattainable little red haired girl) - imagine Grey Gardens for the pre-school set.

First shocking truth? Songs on the radio were NOT sung by actual people standing in the studio. I was a slow child...

Or does it have to be about cartoons?

I didn't realize his boss was a furry.... interesting.

Bugs Bunny in drag was not as hot as Lola Bunny, though. Although, Lola Bunny probably doesn't count, in the long run.
May I just say that that last throwaway line was perfect. The crown jewel on an already remarkable piece of craftsmanship.

You really only need to worry if you're turned on by Elmer Fudd in drag.

April 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGrinningSkull

Is it wrong to admit that I'm a little aroused by this observation???
Just asking... Thats all...

April 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterB1

I was numbingly shocked when I found out professional wrestling was real.

April 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTaylor

Bugs in drag? All of you are SICK. SICK, SICK, S-I-C-K!!! But Jessica Rabbit is definitely HOT!

I've got to stop reading this at work. Laughing out loud til I cry is starting to annoy some of my co workers. The crazy part is, Rick is right! Gah! I hate you!

April 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike

He didn't say Bugs Bunny was Disney. I kind of thought that was the point (maybe a point), that Warner Bros rabbit in drag was hotter than Disney's female characters.

First shocking truth, realized in First Grade when I was punished by both teacher and parents for something another child did: "Life Isn't Fair."

April 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterZedolor

Wow, not bad dude!

I must have told you the story about when I worked on The Big Red Boat and they had the Looney Toon Characters on board. I opened my door one night and Bugs Bunny was there, and I probably told you the rest if not I am sure you can figure it out, by the way it was not drag, she is all woman!!!!

wayne's world reference?

April 11, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkjell

Is there some unmentionable reason why I don't find "Bugs in drag" at all upsetting? I mean Bugs was, as we say, a wild and crazy guy. Intelligent too.

April 11, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMattF

The first panel is great. I'm going to start using "load" as a suffix.

I HAD to look up the bit about the xylophone teats. I entered "mickey xylophone pig" and immediately got the image -

I snorted for a good 20 minutes when I read that line. Oh, and "The truthload's already on deck!" That's gonna be a keeper!

Hey Wayne?
Yeah Garth?
When you were a kid, did you watch Looney Tunes a lot?
Did you ever think Bugs Bunny was hot when he dressed like a girl?
No. [he thinks about it and laughs harder] No.

And this, I have to figure, might've inspired this comic. Otherwise, I guess demented minds just think alike. But anyway, Bugs Bunny isn't even a Disney character, so it's apples to oranges.

Heh. This one had me in stitches. Nice build-up and delivery.


November 12, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRadien

I will do you one better. Neither Lois Lane or Lana Lang are as hot as Jimmy Olsen in drag, I have proof!

Bugs-in-drag built the foundation of a lifetime of kink. Happily -- or not -- Barry Bostwick built the rest of the building. Of kink.

But none of them are as hot as the cat that Pepe LePew was always after.

"Cause I'm about to drop a truth-load!," not quite as good as "Cause I'm gonna truth you up!"

July 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStacheMan

""Cause I'm about to drop a truth-load!," not quite as good as "Cause I'm gonna truth you up!""

Yeah, but it compensates with gratuitous innuendo.

True story: I once made a list of the Top Ten Hottest Cartoon Babes. One of them was Bugs Bunny in drag.

I am filled with shame.

December 27, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteruwg

Wow, those are some vigorous knee-jerk reactions. So you guys really can't handle the truth, but at least you got a thigh work-out from it.
