Straight Line of the Day: Name Your Post-Apocalyptic Faction!

Posted on March 25, 2014 12:00 pm

Works like this: I feed you Moon Nukers a straight line, and you hit me with a punch line in the comments.

Today, 4of7 of Little Worlds offers a challenge based on his latest Kevin Koastie cartoon (say… is that Kathleen Sebelius doing a cameo as The Librarian?):

If you were the leader of a group of Post-Apocalyptic survivors, what would you call the group, and what would be your rallying cry?

If you’re stuck for a name, try the Rock band name generator

    As an aside, regarding SHTF preparedness, I was shelf-stable before it was cool.

    The We Have Guns, Lots of Guns faction.

    our motto would be “here’s bullets in your eye”

    The “real” name we’d use I’d rather not post because it’s our family name. But our motto (we actually have a family crest with this motto in Latin on it) is “Guns, Land, Family – everything else is Communism”

    Bart: zzyzx’s zone.
    Jim: zzyzx’s zone? I always wanted to go there.
    Bart: Come on.

    I don’t know what the faction name would be but my motto would be:

    “Give me Liberty or Give Me Head”.

    (I saw that as a cartoon balloon in a history book I had in 7th grade – some witty student from the previous year had drawn it on a picture. It always cracked me up – especially as a 7th grader. Apparently I haven’t advanced much in humor since then.)

    #3 – Jimmy,
    This reminds me of a post that appeared here after the 2008 elections, when we debated the formation of the Republican Underground. (mottos, logos, etc.)

    By placing the Great S.N.A.F.U. in the 1990’s, I eliminated all that from my fictional time-line. (kind of like how they rewrote Star Trek history in that reboot movie by dropping a black hole on the planet Vulcan – a small price to pay for artistic freedom, I guess.)
    Of course, I had to give everyone who reads the cartoon at least the hope that no matter how devastating the wars, that they might be among the survivors, and not only survivors, but founders of a new world order!
    I think that’s why zombie movies are so popular – most people see themselves as survivors, not as zombies (sorry, can of spam!) 😉

    PS: Harvey, no, that’s not Sebelius, but she Does end up ratting Kevin out to the cops! (Oops, Spoiler Alert!)

  40. Jimmy says:

    @38: Oh, wow, 4of7. I had forgotten about that Republican Underground post. Those were the days at IMAO… that’s for sure. Most of those people don’t comment here anymore. :-(

  41. 4of7 says:

    #40: yeah, but there’s plenty of new people – I guess that makes us the “old guard” now!
    Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!
