Marty’s photo of the day #4397: While backpacking across Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, Deb and I stopped for an hour or so to watch a troop of chacma baboons. There was a lot of casual, unmarried fucking going on, but I’ve chosen a shot that doesn’t show that out of respect for any […]

Dogs and tools
Marty’s photos of the day #4395-4396: I tend to frown at stick-up-their-ass people who refuse to give animals the credit they deserve for both emotions and intelligence. And when I read articles about animals using tools, dogs are never included. One such article claimed, “In some cases, the objects are merely toys—but they become tools […]
Yak eye vs. musk ox eye
Marty’s photos of the day #4359- 4360: Yak eye vs. musk ox eye. Know the difference. (Hint: The yak has the Donald Trump hair.)
The true test of character
Marty’s photo of the day #4204: Some people say religion makes a person good. That’s bullshit. Practically without exception, the most awful people I know—and know of—are the most religious. No, the true test of a person’s character is how they treat their dogs (or cats, if they swing that way). Yeah, I’m not guided […]
Killdeer and the pandemic
Marty’s photo of the day #3919: I photographed this killdeer on June 20, 2020. Deb and I had rented the Hogan Cabin that weekend, which is a Forest Service cabin in western Montana. Other than the birds and the mountain flowers, what I remember most about our visit was that it was our first time […]
GQP hot air
Marty’s photo of the day #3649: If Republicans had balls, even one-billionth the size of these, we’d be well on our way to solving the global warming crisis and Donald Trump wouldn’t be starting up his white supremacist rallies again. So just remember: no matter what form the hot air comes in this summer, it’s […]
Here’s how we know Republicans are bigots: Barack Obama wore a tan suit—just like white president, Ronald Reagan—and Republicans turned it into days of ridicule. “There’s no way, I don’t think, any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday. I mean, you have the world watching.”—Peter King, Republican Representative, NY Michelle Obama showed […]
Even a shrew . . .
Marty’s photo of the day #3585: “Let me get this straight. You’re not going to wear a mask and you’re not going to get a COVID-19 vaccination because it will make Donald Trump look bad and Joe Biden look good? I’ve eaten shrews with eyes more open than yours.”
A ground squirrel vs the far-right
Marty’s photo of the day #3547: “Let me get this straight: You don’t believe DDT harms wildlife; you don’t believe humans cause global warming; you don’t believe masks help stop the spread of COVID-19, yet you do believe that your god will soon reinstall Donald Trump as president. Isn’t that kind of like a ground […]
This will not be The Trump Airport
Marty’s photo of the day #3514: Today’s photo is from Costa Rica. This is the funky little Golfito Airport, which is a single landing strip cut into the rainforest, with a reservation counter, bench, and vending machine under a protective canopy. Rumor has it that Donald Trump approached the village of Golfito, desperate to have […]
Young howler/old howler
Marty’s photo of the day #3493: I haven’t posted any photos from Costa Rica for a while, so here’s a young howler monkey. Speaking of howlers . . . . Just one more day of the biggest crybaby howler of them all, Donald Trump!
Don’t worry about division: impeach and convict!
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is pleading with the Democrats not to impeach Donald Trump again. His reasoning is that Trump made a helpful statement, he’s going to be a good boy for his final eleven days, and that an impeachment will further divide us. Why is it that Republicans can be racist, hateful, greedy, and […]
Something blue for today
Marty’s photo of the day #3482: My only criteria for choosing a photo today was to find something blue—something to freeze out Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the red villains. Photographed somewhere along the way to Antarctica.
January 6th: the day the GOP attempts to turn America into a theocracy
The Electoral College certification process is going to make January 6th a wild day. Cosplay right-wingers will descend on Washington like flies descend on Mike Pence’s head. And inside the United States Capitol, at the joint session of Congress, roughly 140 Republicans will attempt to toss aside the presidential election and turn America in to […]
If the GOP gets its way, science-fiction comes true
In Time Is Irreverent, my Trump-like character, President Handley, manipulates the system to turn America into a theocracy and become Supreme Leader for Life. In real life, the attorney general of Texas (joined by 17 red states) has filed a Supreme Court lawsuit to overturn Biden’s victories in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. The chances […]
I’m glad Trump survived COVID-19 to . . .
I’m so glad Donald Trump survived COVID-19 to witness people around the world dancing in the streets over his defeat! He’s going to lose the Electoral College by 306 to 232 and the popular vote by over 5 million. People will remember his crybaby post-trouncing temper tantrum for as long as the United States exists, […]
Trump is worse than a venomous snake bite
Marty’s photo of the day #3416: For Halloween, I searched my photos to come up with something scary to post. I really don’t find any animals all that scary, but this cottonmouth I photographed in the Everglades was as close as I could get. In truth, right now the only thing that scares me is […]
Inside . . . somewhere
Marty’s photo of the day #3399: This is either a photo from inside a cave near Chillagoe, Queensland, Australia, or it is a scan of Donald Trump’s brain. I’m not sure which.
Donald Trump’s new hairstylist
When Martyman—ever the entrepreneur—learned that Donald Trump had deducted $70,000.00 from his tax returns for hairstyling, he shouted, “I can do that!” And since action figures are immune to COVID-19, he applied for the job and got it. Ladies and gentlemen . . . I present to you Donald Trump’s new hairstylist—Martyman!
Trump lost ground bigly
Last night’s presidential debate was hard to watch, but from a strategic point of view it was a thing of beauty. Donald Trump had set-up Joe Biden to be a senile old man, just as he had previously set-up Hillary Clinton to be a woman with Parkinson’s Disease. That Biden more than held his own […]
