I saw this cartoon by Adrian Tomine a while back on the NPR website and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Though MANOJ was made before this cartoon came out, I could totally imagine being inspired by it.

Fond Affection for Steven Segal

Just returned from India after 3 weeks and have been catching up on e-mail. Here is, without a doubt, my favorite mail from my time away (names and addresses withheld to protect all parties involved):

Comedian Needed for A&E Bio

Category: Lifestyle & Entertainment

Media Outlet/Publication: A&E

Specific Geographic Region? Yes (See below)

Region: LA & NY

Deadline: 6:00 PM EASTERN - February 26

Query: "A&E Biography producers looking for humorist/comedian with fond affection for Steven Segal, 90's action star, to be filmed speaking about Steven Segal's persona and films."

Filming Thursday Feb 26th in LA, Friday Feb 27th in NYC, or week of
March 2-6 in NYC.


1. I was doing fine until the "fond affection" part. If they just wanted comedians for this, we'd all be lining up...though a roast and a biography are different creatures I suppose.

2. Steven Segal's "persona." PERSONA? It's all an act?

3. Seriously, A & E? Once your Biography program gets to Steven Segal, maybe it's time to slow it down a bit. Please tell me Paul Robeson and Kurt Vonnegut have episodes already. Please tell me you thought of them both before Steven Segal...and that you know who they are. Please tell me your staff consists of more than a bunch of E! Channel rejects.
