    In case you don’t quite get this one, Ted and a couple of other cartoonists tried a Kickstarter and it tanked. He’s blaming YOU for not recognizing true genius.

    I’m just surprised Ted didn’t compare us to Hitler. “You’re all Hitler! Every last one of you! Hitler!”

    Actually, I tried Kickstarter twice. Worked once, failed once. As a glutton for punishment, I will try it again. Anyway, if you don’t think people funding potato salads as opposed to book and movie projects is insane, I can’t help you.

    The Hitler finds out meme is a thing. Google it.

    “if you don’t think people funding potato salads as opposed to book and movie projects is insane, I can’t help you.”

    Some people can’t be helped. But thanks for trying.

    The potato salad man is providing light, gentle entertainment for people of modest intellectual achievements who want to get in on hipness and irony but have trouble figuring out how. ‘Heh, heh, I gave two dollars to a guy making potato salad.’ It’s sort of Seinfeldian.

    Next: a topknot machine.

    Ted just needs to experiment and find the right mildly humorous tone of whimsy in which to fund his kickstarters and continue his political cartoons. Dial it back just a teensy notch, for starters, and see where it goes.

    Soooo…. you really think this was about Ted and not about the absolute observatory of donating tens of thousands of dollars for #$$%^ potato salad? I’ve never had a kickstarter campaign and I think Ted should have gone farther with his cartoon.

    Patreon is the new thing I see.

    Viagra, from vigorous and more importantly the Sanskrit word for tiger which is “vyaghra.”

    Ted’s 2012 Kickstarter goal: $40,000
    Ted’s 2012 Kickstarter results: $9758
    Ted’s conclusion about Kickstarter: Great artists and brilliant thinkers just can’t get funded

    That makes sense.
    Because my tiger is an endangered species, maybe I could get funding to restore its natural habitat?
