Chuck and Beans starts a flame war with an awesome cartoon.

Okay, so for those of you who haven’t heard about it, there’s this cartoon called Chuck & Beans. It’s accessible, funny, and just snarky enough to where I can show it to my younger sister without being called lame.

^^ So then the comic’s creator decided to do a two-panel layout of the arguments for and against organic food.  And I LOL’d. Matter of fact, I ROFL’d.

Of course the comment war ensued, and with it my frustration level. I mean, here’s this awesome, funny, well-written comic describing both sides of a raging debate accurately and with a sense of humor, and in come the boring activist types who can’t laugh at themselves.
So I’m going to post the comic, and my reply to all the haters. For more great comics, go follow the link to Chuck & Beans.

Great comic.

On a side note: to those who made the comments section a forum for the debate over organic/non-organic… The whole point of the comic is that neither standard is reasonable. Besides, too little is known about the possible health benefits or side-effects of either way of life.

As an example, we still don’t know for sure whether the incidence of disease is higher in those who eat organic or non-organic foods over the course of a lifetime.

And before you come in with an assumed answer, remember that one of the things pesticides help control for are pest-born diseases.

On the other hand, while all the chemicals used in farming and food-production must pass stringent protocols before being used commercially, we aren’t capable of using a crystal ball to gaze into the future and find the next DDT before it finds us.


Basically, we’re all screwed. Might as well LOL about it and not get all religious about a couple leaves of cabbage.

  1. Hey Arthur, stumbled across your website this morning. I’m the guy who drew said cartoon and just wanted to say thanks for the kind words. You pretty much nailed my sentiment with your post.
    Or, as I said to my wife this morning, “Yeah! What THIS guy said!”

    All the best!
