"Haw haw! Suck my mom's tits, buddy!"

It was a sad, sad day when Adam Thrasher laid down his pen and stopped updating his website with the comic adventures of Space Moose. It was even sadder when the website finally went offline, and miscreants such as I could no longer while away the hours trolling through the archives. But good news is at hand: A mirror of the old Space Moose homepage is now online. Though it's now attributed to one Mustafa Al-Habib, curiously enough (perhaps Thrasher's deliberately trying to gain the attention of anti-terrorist authorities or something; it wouldn't seem to be out of character), they're the same old strips and they're just as great as ever.

Keep in mind, this is offensive humour. Space Moose was pure, unbridled id, the sort who would anally rape his friends without malice. It's not the Family Circus. It's not even the Dysfunctional Family Circus. (Man, the Web was a great place to offend and be offended back in the late 90s. I still quote the second proposed caption to this strip on a regular basis.) Sure, it's kind of unseemly to be posting a link to the infamous Clobberin' time strip on the eve of the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, but I do so to paint an accurate picture of the kind of controversy this strip could cause. This comic strips is not for kids, nor for most adults.

But that strip notwithstanding, it's offensive humour done well, and when Thrasher hit a home run, it was obscene comic genius. Check out some of my personal favorites to see for yourself:
- Fellatio Barn
- Heads up, ladies!
- Who's ready to kick some fucking ass?
- PhD in defecation
- 2-to-1 odds on PKU
- Extreme Space Moose
- Smash your ugly face in
- Aspects of cinema

Oh, and the title of this post? That's a nice bit of gloating from Space Moose as he laid down a winning poker hand that drove a suburban family into destitution. It doesn't quite make sense, but I still like to quote that one from time to time too. It's all in the attitude.
