The Last(ish) Word Presents: Macklemore is Less

 

In this returning series for Oddball Magazine, cartoonist George Panagopoulos and poet Chad Parenteau will take political cartooning and mix it with light (and not so light) politically charged verse inspired (sometimes loosely) by the illustration, sometimes maybe even in opposition to it. This will be an experimental venture with words and pictures, which might be intertwined more so in the future. Don’t forget to give us your feedback, both “likes” and “dislikes” (though there is no button for the latter).

Oh woe to the world of hip hop!
Macklemore’s new digs went flop!
That fake nose would need penance
in The Merchant of Venice
Dude, you hit up the wrong Thrift Shop.

 

Are Jewish folk all in a twist
from Macklemore’s stereotype dis?
They say, nah, easy liven’
all is forgiven
if next time you dress up like this.

 

George Panagopoulos is an Artist, Writer, and Comedian from Worcester, MA. You won’t catch him pulling punches, he tries to focus on truth above partisan politics. “I want you to be compelled to discuss my stuff, it’s about starting a dialogue, making you reflect, and hopefully laugh”

Chad Parenteau’s limericks have been seen floating around in places like Salon and Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. He is a contributing editor to Oddball Magazine.
