The original core: Irony Curtain, Mr. Pinko, Hippie Critic, Admin Girl, BigFurHat

It was originally an e-mail ring where a dozen or so guys, and one girl, Admin Girl, would participate in trying to crack each other up. It got so weirdly creative and funny that someone suggested that a blog should somehow emerge from it all. The guys knew nothing about blogs. Admin Girl did. She was a blogger before they were called blogs, covering the LA club circuit.

One day Irony Curtain surprised everyone with a Barack Obama book cover parody. He submitted it to one of their favorite blogs, The People’s Cube, and like magic it appeared on the site. They were fascinated. Hippie Critic and BigFurHat wanted to play too, so they submitted some stuff and, again, like sorcery, it appeared on the site.

Irony, Hippie and BigFurHat submitted so much stuff they cordoned off a section for them called The KG3. While this was going on, Admin Girl was busy working on a site of their own – iOwnTheWorld.com.

They officially launched the site on Barack Obama’s inauguration day in 2009, and the core five are pictured above.

The first add-on contributor to the core was Lori Ziganto, aka: Snark and Boobs, currently an editor at Twitchy. Then came Ginger, The Tamminator,  Menderman and Melodee.

illustr8r was added as a contributor after illustrating some of her winning entries for some of iOwnTheWorld’s frequent contests.

Claudia was added after a long string of successful e-mail submissions, as was Dr. Tar.

Cardigan was permanently added after doing yeoman’s work filling in for BigFurHat when he had some surgery a few years back.

iOTWreport.com was born from these beginnings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following bios were written by the contributors themselves-

Admin Girl- Admin Girl, Kerre, passed away this year (2016.) She will always be missed, never forgotten.

BigFurHat- BFH attended art college in NYC and managed to remain heterosexual. Despite this handicap he produced thousands of illustrations, one of them actually sold. Bored with his stress-reducing hobby, reassembling fruit cocktail, BigFurHat bought a computer. This is the result. He’s been creating mirth and dismerriment for the disgruntled dissenters since Obama took office. 

Cardigan- 

Claudia- Born and raised in the Midwest to a somewhat normal family – conservative, Christian, hardworking. Enjoy learning, travel, critters, writing, art, laughing. Tend to be quiet but hell-fire can erupt when needed. More hell-fire in the last 6 years than I care to admit. My super-power would be to expose evil by forcing the truth from those who seek to hide.

Dr. Tar- Created in 2009, Dr. Tar, is a pseudonym based on the Edgar Allen Poe story and Alan Parson’s Project song, “The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether.”  

Originally it was intended as a play on words for what Dr. Tar wanted done to Barack Obama  (and all socialists in general.) After having found iOwnTheWorld, via The People’s Cube, Dr. Tar became a regular in the Comments and the Bullpen. In 2013, Dr. Tar was allowed the privilege of posting to the main page where he continues to try and post material of the same high quality that is hallmark of iOTWreport.

Tar is a former academic (terminal degree Ph.D. International Business, minor Finance) who taught for 15 years before tiring of the increasingly stressful and less innovative environment.  He is currently  procrastinating his way through his first novel about a possible near future where big government control has forced medical professionals into a Prohibition Era like existence. He currently resides in Wisconsin’s 7th District where one only has to put up with winter in order to be rewarded with 9 months of enjoyable weather (and even winter has its moments).

illustr8r-  Originally from the MidWest, illustr8r lives and draws things for kids quietly from a nice spot on the too lefty Left Coast. Given access to Mr. Peabody’s Way Back Machine, illustr8r would have pitched boxes of tea into Boston Harbor, compiled a sketchbook of plants with the Corp of Discovery and attended the Howard Pyle School of Illustration Art.

Irony Curtain-  It all started in a 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California.

Well..hardly. More like a real big city on the east coast in a neighborhood you’d need a bazooka to walk through with today. 

One day, a man appeared to him on a flaming pie and declared, “You are Irony with an I” and that was that, or so it seemed. But to the man’s astonishment, young Irony whipped out a pencil and quickly drew a very unflattering caricature of the man. Instead of being shunned, Irony was instantly surrounded by admiring well wishers who didn’t care for the flaming pie guy in the first place.

Years later Irony would team up with Big Fur Hat, And Hippie Critic as secret members of the Art School Resistance and a movement was born. He’s still not sure where Mr. Pinko came from.

Mr. Pinko-  making Liberal heads explode one empty skull at a time.

I thought I was fired.

  2. And let me guess….you’re all white Republicans? That’s typically the demographic that dismisses human beings with labels like “cuckoo” or “loon”.

  3. HRC scratch her nose/face

    Why did HRC scratch her nose/face several times when DJT was putting the heat on her? Was that a hint to Lester Holt to move on? Is it a new tick or a signal to someone?

  4. wtf is going on with the changed format for this site?? I can barely read it as it oscillates up and down constantly, gives me a headache to try

  5. The November 2016 Message after the election: The Chair Is Against The Wall, The Chair Is Against The Wall. John Has A long Mustache, John Has A long Mustache……

  6. Your article about Hillary Clinton being the devil to the Catholic Church refers to “satin” I think you mean “Satan” Please proof read.

  7. E Smiley- If you had paid proper attention you would have realized It is an American Mirror article. We don’t edit others’ work.
    Thanks ever so much for stopping by.

  8. I found the iotwreport.com via a facebook page from Andy Garcia that has since been taking down. Love love love the photos , have never seen such pleasure in my life. I’m living in swfl amongst the restaurant working class since 2010. Came down from CT. I heard stories from co workers who came in this country illegally. One from a girl who entered in thru CA and made it to Naples to marry the owner of a potato farm. He was 80 years old and she got impregnated with his sperm before he died. She had twins and received his social security for them til they turned 18 for their college fund. The other worker in 2008 during the first time home buyers rebate of 8,000 had taken part in a scheme to rip off our government. Her friend worked in reality and processed false paperwork to obtain 8,000 for each remittance. The girl was beginning to freak out when she would go to the atm to withdrawal her 4,000 share and the bank started requiring her to go inside to withdrawal. That is why i am so glad Trump has (as one of your illustrations shows) take the wheel back. Thank you so much. I’m working at a big box warehouse now but if i ever get rich or real money making jobs come back i will donate.

  9. This is my first experience with iOTWreport and after spending 2 hours,and already posting 3 – 4 comments, you can probably see – I am absolutely hooked. I managed to land here after tapping a link to your site posted at Western Rifle Shooters Association. This is fun, refreshing and I will be donating as this is one of the few sites that does not have an overwhelming number of annoying pop-ups…De Oppresso Liber….

  10. rot in hell you stupid mother fuckers, war mongers of the 101st chairborne, racists, no limits on wealth and you will be fucked in the ass too. but i don’t care. burn in hell trumpsters(not a threat, its an opionion) hitlery sucks too. If Sanders took all his voters he would have got a lot of stupid white working class voters from trump and would have beat trump. but even bernie abandoned we progressives. i mean how can you resurrect either dems or gop to be decent parties again. We are going to form our own party based on much of the Stuff we need and wanted and Sanders exploited. and we are going to choose and vote for our PUBLIC SERVANTS(NOT LEADERS)against the dems and gop. In four years we will be the majority party from the local to the federal level. As i write i come to the conclusion that trump, clinton and sanders can all go take a dumpster dive from the top of the empire state building
