Joke Decoder (panel 42)

vert-43Spinal Masturbation

One of the censored cartoons.  Perhaps the title of this cartoon is a little crass — but that’s me looking back with “2009 eyes” on a cartoon I drew in 1995.  In any event, the cartoon was meant to poke fun at us chiropractors. We chiropractors are notorious for finding ways to adjust ourselves — self gratification.  The onomatopoetic words springing forth from Vert’s spine were inspired by Don Martin’s cartoons in Mad Magazine — especially “clop.” 🙂
