The Saga of David in South Park

I've had a few people ask what the story is behind my profile picture, which looks like it was swiped from an episode of South Park. Not quite. Actually, I created my South Park doppelgänger on this website, and it's only one illustration in the following story, a story [he intoned oh-so-dramatically] "...of my beginning... and my probable end!" (Quote freely "borrowed" from "There Is No Hope in Crime Alley," Detective Comics #457, written by Denny O'Neil.)

Here it is:

The Saga of David in South Park

David as a boy, before anyone ever really knew him... including himself. (That's a toy gun, of course!)

David in his early twenties, fighting a pre-emptive war against the world.

David as he is today, older and... wiser?

The Ghost of David-Yet-to-Be, older, befuddled, and drinking a sissy drink with a freakin' parasol in it, no less!

A gravy-stained David. Even older. Even more befuddled. No longer allowed even sissy drinks with freakin' parasols in them. One last hurrah, as he tries to recapture his happy childhood. (That's a toy gun, of course!)

Oops. Damn. Guess it wasn't a toy gun, this time around... !

"One last hurrah," indeed!

Thanks for your time.


  1. Gee. Thanks.

  2. Careful with that broken glass, you wouldn't want to suffer a fate similar to the Abba drummer dude.

    ::still scratching head - ABBA had real drums??!?!?::
