Jumping on the Bandwagon

September 28, 2009

Thirty comics in and I have hit another internet milestone, my first pretend killing of a celebrity. If you're not aware already, Kanye West is a douche bag, and has been for some time, and each time you think he has reached his peck of douchey-ness he reaches deep down inside and find a new previously unheard-of level of douche.

Of course, the following comic is about West's latest act of douche baggery during the MTV Video Music Awards when he interrupted Taylor Swift's speech after winning the best female video of the year award by running up on stage, taking the microphone from her then saying, "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the greatest videos of all time."

Now anyone who can read inbetween the lines can obviously see this was West saying that Swift didn't deserve to win the award over Beyonce. West was then escorted from the ceremonies, which is kind of a shame, because had he stayed he would have seen that Beyonce actually won the best video of the year, so yeah, it may or may not be one of the greatest videos of all time, but at least the MTV audience thought is was the best one that year.

Now I'm aware that ripping West for this has been done already, several times, by people FAR more talented than me, but hey, I wanted to do it anyway and had I'd not been in the middle of a story line I would have done it sooner. Then I figured seeing as I just "killed" something that annoys me in the last comic way not kill off someone else?"
