News Flash: High-Profile Pot Blames Kettles For All Modern Ills

John Kricfalusi rants at length about how cartoon characters and toys for kids are no longer "cute", "tasteful", or "appealing", and, by extension, how culture has been destroyed as "...[f]orm has ... been replaced by meanness, ugliness and 'attitude'."

Kricfalusi is the creator of Ren and Simpy, the poster child -- no, the Patient Zero -- of mean, ugly, toss-out-the-model-sheet, tasteless "attitude" cartoons.

Shout-out to boingboing

Edit: added a link to the rant in question, so you can all experience the Simanity of it all first-hand. Sorry about that./font>
