Iowahawk

Filed under: Humor — Patterico @ 10:12 pm



Call me a moron if you like — you wouldn’t be the first — but I was mostly unaware of this Iowahawk guy before today. I think I remember going to his site once from Instapundit. I remember him as the guy with the goofy pipe coming out of his mouth.

But the guy is a comic genius. I stumbled upon him again as a result of this Pejmanesque post, and man! the guy is Jeff Goldstein-funny. I mean that funny.

As I said, if you already knew this, you can call me a moron and move on to the next post. But if you didn’t, go read his two most recent entries (the first of which is a recycled post from 2001):

Bush Country Faces Grim Shortages of Latte, Galleries

He or She Is The Wrong Man or Woman For The Court

Genius, I tells ya!

UPDATE 8-8-05: He has a new post today, here.

  1. I had Iowahawk benchmarked before PP. Go to his archives and read all his stuff. Coffee through the nose funny.

  3. Bush Country Faces Grim Shortages of Latte, Galleries had me in tears. He was doing a lot of good stuff last year also. If you enjoy a good laugh he belongs in your favorites folder.

  4. Bush country et al was good (living in Texas I can connect to much of the humor however satirical). However, my favorite is

  7. “Call me a moron if you like”

    Don’t worry, Patterico, no one–at least anyone with even a half-ounce of sense–would use “moron” and “Patterico” in the same sentence. 🙂

  8. So you’re a moron!

    🙂

    Seriously, I’m stunned that someone as wired as you hasn’t previously encountered the magnificent comic genius of Iowahawk. He might just be the funniest man alive.

  10. No one can parody vacuousness like Iowahawk, and that one on Juan Cole is a classic.

  12. I didn’t know him. I do know! And he’s good!

  13. I am surprised someone like yourself hadn’t found Iowahawk yet…..he’s an absolute hoot….

    Watch out for the roving bands of Lutherans though…..

    (if you’re from the mid-west that will slay…)
