Bootleg Bonus Auction!

posted by on December 10 at 11:27 AM

From inspired dumpster diver/”Schola Nigga” cartoonist Ivan Cockrum comes this hilarious “Bonus Strangercrombie auction!”


Has your labor of love been slagged by Stranger Books Editor Christopher Frizzelle? Here’s your opportunity to chuckle over his ignominious past as a Sales Support Person for Adams & Associates, Inc. This trophy was lovingly plucked from Frizzelle’s very own dumpster, where it was discarded like a wriggling maggot. Next time Frizzelle prints a negative word about you, just shove this in his face. Gives you instant authority to demand where a hack office drone like him gets off criticizing your genius! Proceeds go to hunger-relief agency Northwest Harvest!

Ivan has indeed arranged for proceeds earned by the item to go to Northwest Harvest, and Chris is thrilled that his trash has the potential to help the hungry. So: Go! Bid! Buy!

Hey y'all:

A story that might not be commonly known regarding Cockrum as both generous and someone who loves to fuck with Stranger staffers: Cockrum only got to do his historical "Schola Nigga" cartoon last year because I was merciful.

I won that auction, and Ivan came a-begging to me, saying his computer was down, wa-wa, he had some funny idea. He offered to either pay me or match my bid, and I let him add his donation on top of mine. So he basically doubled the amount of cash that went to Northwest Harvest for the opportunity to do that cartoon.

Mr. Frizzelle has never said anything nasty about me (of which I am aware at any rate), but I'm bidding anyway!

Before I bid, I just want to see Mr. Frizzelle in his Strangercrombie bikini posing with this grand crystal (or is it Crystelle®?) award. Mmmmmm... Frizzellalicious!

Time for John Longenbaugh to go dumpster diving.
