This cartoon is NOT from Scotland.
After I created this cartoon, I think it was
picked up and posted on a website in Scotland.
Apparently there is a famous Scottish author
named Jacob Dials. In my original cartoon,
I added a special "Thank You" line to my son,
also named Jacob Dials, since it was he who originally
came up with the name "barackside" while we were sitting
around thinking of funny names for the president. That
was the seed idea for the cartoon, and the genesis of the
confusion as to where it originated.
Barackside first appeared on TobyToons.com
on June 10th, 2009. It went up on Redstate.com
on June 11th, 2009.
From those initial posts, it seems to have gone viral.
America, rest assured, it is not just the Scottish that are
laughing. As it says in the header above,
this cartoon is American made. Next time
you get the viral Barackside email, direct your friends,
families, and coworkers here so
they can get the real story, and maybe pick up some
Barackside gear of their own.
