Welcome!

These are cartoons that are stuff "marjorie" says in online interactions on the internet. The blog contains art, photographs, and illustrations in caption-driven pieces. marjorie joins internet message forums and chat rooms where she disarms the members with her unique style of humor. She also has great fun morphing into film characters, becoming her own brand of film noir, experiencing art and culture themes, time traveling, and walking all over today's NYC. marjorie even interviews celebrities and pop culture personalities. Her verbosity is smart, provocative, and well-played. marjorie's wit is intelligent and sophisticated, and the totally tongue-in-cheek "bad art" serves to make the work even funnier. Please also check out the cartoons posted in past months.

Meet marjorie


"Roses are red
And violets are blue,
My clever charientisms
Will make an acerebral paronomasiac out of you."

The Natural Homeopathic Cure for Depression


"When "trolls" try to bother me by photoshopping 
my pictures into ads for customers who need self-improvement, 
I cheerfully smile and am grateful for the publicity and attention.

It all helps to pump my pedestal right to internet fame 
and it is all internalized and digested 
better than Cymbalta!"

Ultraviolet Video Fame

viewer
"marjorie, 'trolls' are recording your shows 
and sticking the videos up on YouTube!!" 

marjorie
"Shocker, darling. Many stupid heads
spend much of their time building shrines to me.

When the videos reach a million views 
and are "trending" on twitter 
and I become a viral internet sensation...
get back to me.

Until that time, take a hike and get lost.
Stop disturbing my nap over invisible narishkeit."  

Classic Projection

"call marjorie, call marjorie, call marjorie, call marjorie,

call marjorie, call marjorie, 
call marjorie, call marjorie, call marjorie, 
call marjorie, call marjorie, 
call marjorie..."

marjorie
"And she says I am obsessed with her?
What planet is that delusional bondit living on?
Her champagne wish and caviar dream is
to be on my daily radar."

Who knew I was so research worthy?"

Game Strategy


"The first time I encountered serious "game" was in 1981. 
 I almost went down. 
But, I got up and honed my SKILLS like a ninja. 
 I played that game like ROCKY. 
 I jabbed and grabbed, I did Haymakers and Bolo punches. 
 But it was my Dempsey Roll that almost took him down. 
 I pulled out of that game and moved on... and my opponent? 
 He died. Literally. 
 In retrospect, I think I was too much of a mental challenge."

Stolen Identities

"I ran into my friend Nate last night and thought he was Al. 
He pretended TO BE AL. 
Then, he got off the train and I realized he was Nate. 
 Isn't Nate and Al a famous deli in LA? 
 Nate and Al really could be twins separated at birth. 
One is a retired teacher and the other is a comic! 
 Maybe they are imagined parts of me?"

Ass Backwards

"When a viewer declares I am obsessed with somebody, 
I can rationally conclude that viewer is so not playing with a full deck.

The named object of the obsession = dumb
The one who thinks I am obsessed = dumber

I am all self involved and the only person I am obsessed with... is me."

The Glory of Fame

"Viewers can type the worst things about me. 
The most awful comments serve to help me find my smile. 
At last, fame in all it's sweet decadence!"

Call Me the Name, I Play the Game

wanted!


stalking the mean streets


and caught!

"Internet dudes have labeled marjorie THE STALKER.
And just like Clark Kent who becomes Superman
marjorie morphed into THE STALKER OF CHELSEA!"

Carte Blanche


"I decided to reward a very loyal viewer with...
 the golden status and power of chat room carte blanche!"

The Blabbermouth


"If everything is repeat worthy to a blabbermouth,
it's a good head's up to not voluntarily share zip.

Whatever you share might end up 
on the public telephone wall." 

Misery Loves Company


"When a group gathers like a cult to celebrate in totally 
asinine and similar ways endless low level entertainment 
because they have nothing else to do, 
they all deserve each other."

Psychological Spins


"I kindly suggested some NYC sightseeing attractions... 
and days later in another show the discussion agenda was
the tired and old spin: marjorie, "The Stalker."

In a venue that thrives on low level entertainment 
and projection, "The Stalker" was quite the topic du jour.

Anonymous cyber peeps are stalk-worthy?
No, but the marjorie-cartoons are 
eyeball stalk worthy and... peek a boo, I see YOU!"

Lessons in Self-Esteem

"I can walk around thinking I am the 'cat's meow'
when other's may think I am ineffable."

Mixed Messages

viewer #1
on a Wednesday she says to a broadcaster:
"Kick marjorie out of here, it is long overdue."
six days later she advises marjorie:
"I think you should make up with that broadcaster because 
the two of you could be good friends."

viewer #2
Monday, she is very angry and confrontational with marjorie
"Bring it on bitch!"
four days later she says, with great admiration
"The person I would most like to meet is marjorie."

Status Symbols

"There is much sophomoric carrying on 
over "ops" or "mods" in broadcasters' channels. 
Are "mods" some internet brass ring 
or sort of like owning a Honus Wagner?"

The Rebuke

"I extended an olive branch to a hater and 
suggested we become friends.
Her reply was that it would be a 'disaster.'

Then, I suggested that when 
she visit NYC she see a Broadway show.
To that idea she replied: 'It's not my bag.'

Yikes, she was right!
A friendship with her would have been a disaster!"

The In Crowd

broadcaster
"Everybody hates marjorie"

marjorie
"Exactly who are these viewers who hate me?
They spend hours passing numbers to that broadcaster 
so he can make childish and dopey prank calls.

That is not exactly the demographic to which
 I aspire to be accepted and loved."

Verbal Tricks in a Backwards World

"When harassment is manifested in dozens of clear ways 
and marjorie replies with her special brand 
of humorous performance art, 
harassers will  flip the ratio 
and call marjorie obsessed. 
Sociopaths lack cognitive skills and the sequence gene."

Mass Confusion

"Obsessed fans often have bizarre twisted thoughts
and they grab onto minutiae so they can believe that 
superstars are obsessed with them!"

"They create a delusional and emotional dynamic
within demented relationship fantasies
and then engage in extreme Freudian projection."

"These starstruck fans lose sight of the fact 
that they are totally unknown nobodies in marjorie's life.
They are pathetically, classically, and weirdly
confused in their own very backwards upside down world."


Internet Caspers With Weird Takes


"Another Casper surfaces to inanely call me what
she believes to be my strongest Achilles heel:
THE STALKER!
And she claims I am obsessed with her!"

I am at a huge loss to understand how one could
possibly be obsessed with a totally unknown entity!

It is during these times that I understand
what Freud meant when he
coined the term: projection."

Performing Exorcisms

"I perform exorcisms on wannabes 
 and beat them back with such a strong halitosis 
 that they melt into puddles of slime."

They Are Waiting

"I strut stuff as I walk around NYC... 
smug knowing the dopey weak minded keyboard warriors 
are sitting like vultures waiting for my return."

All Systems Ready

"I arrive at my computer ready to push 
the necessary buttons to enable weak minds. 
Call me a 'nut?' I type: activate the nut gene."

Cyber Interactive Nintendo

"The wannabes on the internet who engage me are 
constantly hoisted by their own petards in classic backfires. 
 A brass ring is not even the prize 
in a dynamic of conflict 
that exists only in their own minds."

"I activate auto comebacks...
and render their nonsense 
a form of interactive Nintendo."

Backfires

"I am Cyber Granny Kick Ass
All those online who engage me limp away defeated 
and they collapse back into their weak minds!!"

Unruffled Feathers


"I am a 66 year old woman who evokes very very strong reactions. 
I'm the antithesis of the invisible woman. 
The butt hurt play "gotcha"... and I laugh and pass go."

Peer Groups


"I have two Masters degrees and spend my time visiting museums. 
When the level of intelligence in a paradigm drops too low, 
I exit the scene."

Star Power

"I am self-involved and self-actualized. 
I would never create a name to reference anybody else. 
My internet experience isn't a cameo appearance."
