Return To Sender Redux

In my last entry, I complained about charities that send you return address labels as a bribe for donations. Mostly I was annoyed because the Ziggy-themed labels themselves are embarrassing. Cora and Tales of a Well-Fed Graphic Designer (nice concise name there!) suggested I make the labels less embarrassing by vandalizing them. I thought it was such a good idea that I did just that. Behold my new labels, all of which I vow will be affixed to real mail.


Look out, Ziggy! It's a poorly drawn banana!


Admit it. You suspected as much.


For the Caddyshack fans. Which I sincerely hope are all of you.


Daisies ARE the most girlish flowers. Plus he can use the height boost.


Ziggy's pets all seem to have the same idea. Can't say I blame them.


The bird is right. I hope Ziggy doesn't wear out his Billy Ocean and Culture Club tapes.

Hahaha glorious

Is that implying he's listening to Hasselhoff?

I like the one where he's in drag.

Soda and Candy said...

"The bird is right."

heehee

reminded me of "The children are right to laugh at you, Ralph. These things couldn't cut butter."

For some reason, I can't see these pictures. Blogger is being a bitch.

But I was happy to see a non-defaced Ziggy on my very special winner's package that I received recently.

I especially love the poorly-drawn banana one.

Also, you're more than welcome to shorten my blog title if you're going to link to it. Blogger doesn't give me the option to choose a name since I'm on Wordpress...

to the bird: Hey, hey, you, you...get into my car. Who me? Yes, you. Oh, get into my car.

Alice: *bow*

Red: It does imply he's listening to Hasselhoff. You are not the only person to ask, so I think I made it unclear. And yes, I think I draw cartoon heels very nicely :)

S&C: I used that exact Ralph reference last night to make fun of the movie Rudy, which sucks.

BeckEye: If you had seen them, you would laugh to yourself and then publicly call me a blockhead or an idiot.

Tales: I will do just that. And my first banana was much better, but I accidentally ripped it. Some things you can only draw once.

Jenks: I give up. I've spent a good portion of the afternoon trying to figure that out. Hint!

Gwen said...

Jenks was singing a Billy Ocean song, blockhead.

Meredith said...

I think Ziggy is hooked on a feeling just like the Hoff...

Rebecca said...

Clearly, Ziggy solely listens to mixed tapes he makes for girls but never gives to them.

In light of that description, maybe your use of Ziggy address labels isn't so much ironic as entirely appropriate.

Oh snap! She got you good.

Prunella Jones said...

Who doesn't listen to Hasselhoff? Hot Shot City is the greatest and best song ever.

Cora said...

See? Isn't vandalism fun? If I give you my address, will you send one to me?

:-)

Cora said...

Oh, and sorry it took me so damn long to get my ass over here to read this. The stupid court stuff has been keeping me waaaayyyyy busier than I'd like to be. :-(

Those labels make my crappy flower labels look artistic. I've learned many coping methods for avoiding stress in life and one of the more successful ones involved skipping right over Ziggy in the funny pages. And Family Circle. And...
