Australian Jug Band

I've already shared all the fake information my brain can hold concerning koalas, kangaroos, and jug bands, and I have nothing to say about dingoes, Australia, or Uluru (which is more commonly known as "Ayers Rock" to those of us with no hope of correctly pronouncing "Uluru"), so I don't have anything to say about this picture. Instead, let's just look at more Google searches that have brought people to my blog. These are all actual Google searches written by actual morons:

"Where did kangaroos come from T-rex." Unfortunately, T-Rex is too dead to answer your question, so I will in his stead. The answer is either "Australia" or "kangaroo mommies."

"Why do people say when pigs fly." Oh, no - this is awkward. She just doesn't want to go out with you, man... probably not ever.

"How to look like the headless horseman." Have no head and ride a horse.

"Are killer whales vegetarians?" Yeah, because killer whales were named by plants.

"Bears attack hope." Well it appears to be working, because reading that just filled me with more despair than I've ever known.

"Why tiger shark afraid of the Human Killer Whale." The Human Killer Whale? Oh, dear. Now I'm afraid of that too. I guess I can see where tiger shark is coming from.

"I think sharks are scary." Yeah, me too... but have you heard of the Human Killer Whale? Not even bears kill hope as quickly as that thing.

I am speechless. This is hilarious. "Not even bears kill hope as quickly as that thing."

Oh goodness! It hurts to laugh that hard.

I feel like that koala looks! Shane, if nothing else, you're always good for a few giggles. Thanks, man!

YAY for the Jug Bands! This is my favorite background of your work! Another amazing post!!

Mike Henseler said...

Hi Shane, that jug-band-theme of yours is simply great. Once again you did a great job here. There're not many parts of our world left (maybe asia's next?). Can' wait to see what's comin'. Love your work.

As usual, we love the pictures and commentary but we are still waiting for the British jug band. Matt suggests the 3 most common animals we see here in Britain: the British bull dog, a stag (at every stately home in the UK) and the pigeon - there are about 800 zillion of them in London alone and all because that crazy old lady from Mary poppins made it popular to feed them. tisk tisk.

I love reading your blog, your artwork is fantastic and your commentary always leaves me giggling. Thanks for sharing your talents! Keep up the amazing work!

HAHAHA!! I love that you can see when scared selachophobians mistakenly confide in Google. I suppose the poor, land-hugging dears have no one else to turn to in their time of terror.
Another hilarious post, Shane! Way to pick up T-Rex's slack; he can be such a deadbeat!

Pretty spiffy arts! People always make kangaroos so much more interesting then they actually are, which just leads people to inevitable disapointment, when they actually see real kangaroos.

I, too, was named by a plant.

Ben Reynolds said...

Dude this is awesome. Have you ever thought of publishing an "animal jug bands" book? Like seriously, I think it could be a really good idea for you. Your illustrations are awesome dude.

Knock, Knock... are you hibernating in the summer time? Where are you? Where's my next jug band illustration... come on dude your adoring public awaits.

just read this and couldn't stop laughing.

I'll admit, i get some stupid google searches that bring people to my blog, but geez...

But then again, I understand the Aussies have some decent country music of their own derivation.

Not to mention Tamworth, NSW being the Aussie Nashville/Branson.
