Barry Bonds Hall of Shame Exhibit

BArry Bonds Hall of Fame

Apparently, Christmas is the season for sentencing – first and ex-governor and now an ex slugger. And once again, cartoons are the gift that keeps on giving. Here I’m recycling a cartoon from 2007 to mark the occasion of Barry Bonds’ sentencing for obstruction of justice.

TOONrefugee humbly offers it’s exhibit design services to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Don’t miss my other Bonds Cartoons:

Barry Bonds Bobble Head: Steroid Edition

Barry Bonds Bobble Head

It’s our way of celebrating Barry’s dubious accomplishments as he’s on the verge of passing Henry Aaron as the all-time leader in National League home runs (a few of Hammering Hank’s homers were in the American league so he’ll hold on to the overall record – at least for a while).

For those who miss the humor (or think we’re referring to Barry’s ego), an enlarged head is one side-effect of steroid and/or human growth hormone use. To the best of our knowledge there’s no known exercise program proven to develop scalp muscles.

And, on a serious note, thanks to Hank and Roger for memories that remain untainted even as MLB’s record book has begun to smell a bit over-ripe.

Say it ain’t so

performance enhancing drugs
Are we overlooking the most important side effect of performance enhancing drugs? With the ongoing doping scandals in cycling, track & field, baseball, cartooning (just kidding on that one), etc., etc., it’s worth considering.

And, hey, I promise to get off the sports theme for at least the next couple cartoons.

Edit October 12, 2006: Floyd says it ain’t so?
