This 3 part Top 10 Mental Health Humor Cartoon Post of 2013 is based on the last 12 months of Google Analytics for 2013 blog posts only. Instead of just listing the 10 most popular posts, I thought I would have a bit of fun and let you into some of the thoughts and reasons I drew the cartoons. I might tell you about something you might of missed or looked at in a different way, or maybe you will get the joke, or realize it’s not funny… whatever the case you will read Chato’s Notes.
Here are Four of the TOP 10 Mental Health Humor Cartoon blog posts for 2013:
Chato’s Notes: I was surprised to see this post make the top, being that I only posted it last week. But I know it did have a spike… Maybe with tree lovers or people that watch CSI. True story – I was with my kids the day I posted this cartoon getting soup at a heath food store. My youngest showed the cartoon to one of the employees. He did not have his glasses on and said “oh wha-ch look at that, how cute,” he was praising her about the cartoon “It’s lovely,” my 8 year old said my daddy drew it, then he pulled out his glasses, put them on and he said…”Ax murder, that’s NOT CUTE AT ALL!”….
Chato’s Notes: This cartoon is one of my favorite cartoons from BLOG PARTY for National Health Blog Post Month #NHBPM. It was the 2nd annual event hosted at WeGoHealth. I was happy to focus on The Family Stew Cartoon Series for a full month. In the cartoon, I had to draw about ridiculous bipolar treatments. I focused on the ear lobe not just due to the fad of Lobe stretching. But rather, when I was a kid my father (who was bipolar undiagnosed) read in the National Enquirer about Special Ear Lobe pressure Points used in ancient Asian therapy to control moods. The device they sold was a clamp that looked like a big clothes pin for hanging up your laundry. My father was too cheap to buy the National Enquirer $19.99 special mood pins. He made me wear regular clothes pins on my ears for hours at a time…the weird thing, besides pinching the ear, I think it worked!
