Shouldnt they be WHY fronts

'Elastic band of Truth' - genius Josh, just wonderful.

Feb 18, 2011 at 12:26 PM | Unregistered CommenterCumbrian Lad

Anon - brilliant idea! I will wait for a few more comments and then add in suggestions.

Unable to contain noxious emisions, prevent "fall out" or population explosions.

May contain nuts.

Exaggerated Y Fronts for Robust Confidence

Poses no threat to mankind, but derision from womankind

Can not conceal over swelled egos

Visitors to the antarctic should wear more than one pair. It is not as warm there, as you may have been led to believe

Oh, I'm rude. You could do a rear-view with the Skidmark Of Scientific Integrity.

Colour: Red Smear or the ever popular Chladni Pattern

For some reason, as I scanned the sub-head, I thought it was beginning an acronym (although of course it isn't). But along those lines I propose:
Carbon Alarmism Runs Badly Over - Nugatory

as in: "Ted Turner predicted that in another 40 years or so, most of the people will have died, and the rest of us will be cannibals." "Oh, another CARBON™ warning."

weather-proof by design

Also available, "Panknickers pants" with waterproof material, and elasticated cuffs, for containing accidental pollution, following messages of climate panic

Can't help thinking if this Christmas Josh sends a book of his cartoons to Sir Paul Nurse and the BBC, they might not need to waste licence payer's money making programmes that ask stupid questions about why people have lost faith in some scientists.

I refuse to type "is that a hockey stick in your briefs or are you just pleased to see me?"

Feb 18, 2011 at 1:18 PM | Unregistered CommenterPhillip Bratby

I think it's all pants.

Feb 18, 2011 at 1:24 PM | Unregistered Commenterbiddyb

I am now I'll be assisting spelling-impaired warmists. Staty Tuned.

Feb 18, 2011 at 1:25 PM | Unregistered CommenterRalphieGM

It hides any decline.

Feb 18, 2011 at 1:26 PM | Unregistered Commenterbiddyb

Phillip, I hate to say lol but for you I'll make an exception.

the wearer is suffering from premature consensus on (carbon) budget smugglers

Feb 18, 2011 at 1:59 PM | Unregistered CommenterFrosty


Tailored for an American audience, perhaps..?

I'll get my anorak...

Feb 18, 2011 at 2:06 PM | Unregistered CommenterJames P

This is not just briefs, this is S&M briefs

Feb 18, 2011 at 2:36 PM | Unregistered Commenteranoneumouse

Should be Green on the outside and Red in the inside.

Feb 18, 2011 at 2:38 PM | Unregistered CommenterDon Pablo de la Sierra

You could add a transparent panel at the front to allow Pair Review.

Feb 18, 2011 at 2:42 PM | Unregistered CommenterTim Bromige

Sorry but Frosty's now put me in mind of premature ejaculation. Isn't that an immensely apt description of so much that appears in the likes of Nature - witness Steig as cover story and the stink even from Andy Revkin about this week's premature certainty about man-made increases in precipitation. It's this messy habit of going from software model to BBC headline in just a few moves, as long as it promotes alarmism of any kind. But if your research calls any of this into question it's 88 pages of argument before you get a sniff of being published - in a much less widely read title.

So, naughty thoughts but I think kinda seminal.

For more heavy duty protection, please follow recycled advice....

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:29 PM | Unregistered CommenterFenbeagle

The bit I don't get is why there is an anti- AGW skeptic industry at all. The doom-mongers have their international agreements, windmill subsidies, mandated CO2 reduction targets, charities and media acolytes all in place so why is it important to them to counter free-thinkers that poke holes in their evidence and fun at their foibles?

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:29 PM | Unregistered Commentersimpleseekeraftertruth

simple seeker
.....Nobody likes having their foibles poked.

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:41 PM | Unregistered CommenterFenbeagle

Great stuff there Fen.

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:46 PM | Unregistered CommenterPhillip Bratby

Perhaps the briefs could be armor plated to protect the foibles.

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:53 PM | Unregistered CommenterDave Bob

I've posted a link to Josh's cartoon on the Carbon Brief site

Let's see how long it stays up (hnarr hnarr).

Opening in front for pee-er review?

Feb 18, 2011 at 6:43 PM | Unregistered Commenterjorgekafkazar

Shouldn't that be a big red 10:10 belly button?

NO Pressure ;^)

Feb 18, 2011 at 6:48 PM | Unregistered CommenterFrosty

Josh -- Don't you just love cartoons designed by committees? :)

Feb 18, 2011 at 7:28 PM | Unregistered CommenterDon Pablo de la Sierra

Don, yes it is such fun, I love all the ideas.

Josh, just brilliant ... as were so many of the commenters who saw this before me! May you all go from strength to strength :-)
