Henry the Caricaturist

We had never suspected that Henry "Economist" Gómez's talents included self-caricature of the pictorial kind (although he's a master of the written kind). But he has posted a credible caricature of himself in the act of scraping something that looks like little people from his shoe. Has Henry really grown to such size that he now threatens the lives of passing pedestrians with his avoirdupois? Or are those gingerbread men that fell on the floor while Henry was consuming his breakfast this morning? The drawing is open to many interpretations since no words accompany his little masterpiece.

He's going to be a busy camper deleting the comments that his caricature is likely to elicit. Of course, that might be a welcome change of pace since Babalú does not elicit many comments nowadays, or what comments it receives are "not fit to print."


POSTSCRIPT:

What does it mean? Henry's puzzled readers ask.

Here is his answer:

"The beautiful thing about images is that everyone can interpret them however they [sic] like [sic]. But obviously there are some people the size of coachroaches [sic] crawling around out [sic] the feet of a bigger man."

I think the reason Henry didn't include words in his post is that he is, literally, speechless for once. Look what a fine mess he made of that sentence. Out of common respect for my readers, I feel that I must correct it:

"The beautiful thing about images is that everyone can interpret them however [he] like[s]. But obviously there are some people the size of [cock]roaches crawling around [at] the feet of a bigger man."

A Babalú reader complained that Henry's explanation "says nothing" and Henry expanded on it:

"Without getting too deep into it, there are douchebags out there that think they can viciously attack a female contributor to this blog and not expect the editor to do or say anything about it. And furthermore when the editor called their bluff they think that they can spread calumnies about said editor. And even furthermore there are sanctimonious sons of bitches out there who have stolen thousands of hours from the taxpayers blogging at their government jobs that think they can repeat the calumnies. Well maybe they can. But it doesn't matter really, does it? At the end of the day they are still coachroaches [sic], douchebags and sanctimonious time stealing weasels and Babalu is still an island on the net without a bearded dictator."

OK, the game is up, and it has not gone the way that Henry envisioned. Expect this comment from Louis to be deleted at any moment if not the entire post/thread (unless they really are desperate for comments):

"Ah, I see. The KillCastro affair. While they can be a bit strident in their criticisms and have their moments of being douchebags, your side does not seem to be on the side of the angels either. I have loved this blog from the day I first read it. It has given voice to the aspirations that we Cuban-Americans have for a free Cuba. However, I have, as have others, been put off by how thin-skinned and crass its editors can sometimes be in regards to criticisms, however benign, from those who dare to disagree with them and the blog's prevailing opinion. I hope that Babalu and other Cuban-themed blogs will adopt a more moderate tone and come together for a free Cuba, regardless of our differences on achieving that end."

I don't agree with Louis' moral relativism. The Babalunians, however, will object to his morality.

Henry has allowed Louis' comment to stand and answered it with the most candid admission ever made in the history of Babalú:

"We don't allow propaganda to be posted on this blog or in the comments. If that makes us strident, then so be it. But there are people out there that are your friends one day and destroying you the next. I don't have the time or energy to deal with paranoid schizophrenic idiots that are living in a world of their [own]. Guys that have big balls hiding behind the curtain of anonymity."

They don't "allow" their own contributing editors to post what they want on Babalú. That's a new one. Everybody already knows that they have never allowed commenters to.

As I predicted this is going to be the worst day in Henry's blogging career (well, aside from the time he nearly got Biscet killed). Louis' rejoinder floored him:

"Hope you don't mean that I'm propagandizing. If so, allow me to disabuse you of that notion right now. As we say her in Texas, "I've got no dog in this hunt." However, if someone chooses to employ a nom de guerre and remain anonymous, while that shouldn't hold him above reproach, there are usually pretty good reasons why someone chooses to remain anonymous. If you blogged under another name, would that undermine your credibility in any way? I don't think so. Balls, or lack of, don't have anything to do with it."

That's Kc and Charlie, (notice 2 little men) after stepping on them he's scraping them off his shoe, is his way of saying that VAL delivered the knock out blow, an apology will not be forthcoming, though one is needed.
The Nerve!!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Vana,

LOL, i didnt know what to make of caricature at first. Then i concluded the same thing you did. My guess is that the "three" men are, KC, Rick, and Mat.

Alex Hernandez said...

Henry is a self-righteous prick and a lousy cartoonist.

Vana said...

Ahh John you saw three men..lol..I only saw two, better go back and take another look

Vana said...

That's right John, one is still stuck to the shoe, I believe that is Alex, because of his bashin chivato Val that got somehow removed by Val.

Ms Calabaza said...

Well,

I guess Henry feels no regret for Val's OUTING of a fellow blogger and endangering his family. In fact, his little toon is apparently meant to diss all of us upset about this situation. This is very telling, indeed and speaks volumes about his character and Val's. Ah, the hubris.

I'm disappointed to hear Mr. Cohiba has officially become a Babaluboy. I have always respected his comments in other blogs and he appears to be a good guy. But then, there a lot of "good guys" at Babalu . . . Unfortunately they do not know or choose not to know what their leader has done and the SILENCE is deafening. Sad.

Charlie Bravo said...

I actually think that the man is KillCastro, scrapping off the turds of his shoe, as he said in his post. So, not even an original idea, let alone an original cartoon. Sad, sad, sad.
It only demonstrate the intentions that always were behind the outing. Thanks for giving us more proof.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

Either you or Charlie could be right, though I lean more towards your interpretation because Henry has labelled the JPG "Squashing the Losers."

Charlie Bravo said...

So is it a self stepping over cartoon?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Vana,

After further reflection, i concur with your opinion. That the person being removed from is indeed Alex. It is a statement that they beat Alex by forcing the removal of Alex's show.

But Alex has a new blog that will supplement MAT's blog. Therefore, Val's removal of Alex's show may be a hallow victory in the long run.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Also, this is not an original cartoon. Henry would find it difficult to outline his own hand. He would hold it to his face and stare at it while he tried to trace it on the paper from memory. Hopefully someone would come along and slam it on the table and say, "Here, trace the hand on the paper."

Alex Hernandez said...

Manuel:

Hahahahahaha

That's a good one.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Alex:

No one has ever inspired my humor like Henry. Not even Val.

Vana said...

I can't seem to get into Alex's blog, though I've tried, Manuel could you link it?

Vana said...

The Babalunians have no shame whatsoever, to portray a cartoon like that at a time like this is in my estimation a slap on the face, something serious needs to be done to Val el Chivato Prieto, notice what a chicken he is, he has not posted anything under his name, he's probably too drunk at his so called man camp, hoping the booze will erase from his mind the terrible deed he commited, it aint that easy Val!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

I will link him shortly. He's busy putting up new posts now machine-gun style. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a dozen up today or more. It is a force of nature that has been let loosed.

Is the Beginning...

Vana said...

K found it..LMAO..Alex

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

MAT,


See i was correct after all. One of the men getting squashed was "Rick."

I will go back to my original opinion. The three men were" Rick, KC, and MAT, in that order.

See i knew Rick was at the top. Because Rick REALLY doesnt give a damn!! And Rick has a big bullhorn that shouts all over the entire Soflo blogisphere. Henry hates you to MAT, because you escaped the plantation, which everybody thought that you would become a part of. And KC, i dont know why there is bad blood there.


As a side note, have you noticed that Henry has basically closed down his other blog?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Vana said: he's probably too drunk at his so called man camp,


Have you seen pictures of Val's "men only" mancamp. Well, all i can tell you that it look like the ultimate "pit of sin."

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Henry calls me "Jerkie" or "El Jerkie." He also once used that name to refer to Elián González, whose return to Cuba he supported.

Frankly, I don't think that he alludes to me at all in his comment. He is too afraid to lead anyone to my blog (as well he might). However, his comment will certainly send Babalú's readers in droves to Rick's where they'll get some of the details that they are missing.

Vana said...

Nope I don't agree, it's not Manuel they are squashing, since they have not been able to squash him in any way, I stand by my view, perhaps it could be Rick Kc, and Alex, but no not Manuel.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Henry supported the return of Elian in his blog? Maybe that is one of the reasons why he closed down the "CubanAmerican Pundit."


Next time i catch up with Henry, i will make sure to ask him about it. I am sure he has ready denials for me. Most "chavitos" do.

Ms Calabaza said...

Oh, I get it. This is how Val and Henry are "spinning" this. You see, KC and CB attacked a "female" contributor to their blog and Val came to her defense. Now, "douchebags" are committing calumny by attacking Val . . . I see.

Denial.

Vana said...

Mmmm Viciously attack a female contributor to this blog, seems by that comment that Ziva went running crying to Val, and Val who we all know is a perfect gentleman (yeah right!) came to her defense, if that is the case Ziva is as much to blame for KC'S outing as Val is, both owe KC an apology.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Or, like Kc alluded to in an earlier post. Ziva came with the specific intent to incite a negative response by KC. Thereby giving Val an excuse to "out" KC. Sounds like they planned to tag-team KC from the very beginning. The only question is "why?"



P.S.

Now Ziva has been implicated along with Val!! And there shall be more that are rooted out, as this story unfolds!!

Ms Calabaza said...

Yep Vana,
I guess some women can't take criticism . . . Lord knows you and I have been called everything in the book. It's just words. . .

By the way,
I posted on Babalu:

"Oh, I see Henry so everything you don't agree with is "propaganda" which gives you the right to censor. That sure sounds familiar . . .

Henry,
You need to wash your mouth out with soap. Why don't you print the TRUTH instead of censoring and using cover-ups. Tell your Babalu readers that some people in Cuba are in dire straits due to your editor's temper tantrum. Where is his apology? Why the denial? Let's see if you post this. . . I doubt it."

DO YOU THINK HENRY WILL POST THIS COMMENT?

It occurs to me that if Babalu didn't delete and cover-up so much that this blog would not have been successful. You see people flock to freedom of speech. Amazing thing.

KillCastro said...

Jesus this just go beyond poor fuck-up spinning.
If this HAS t do with the ZIVA affair, then well she sent me an email and closed with a very gracious and lady like FUCK YOU.
I have never even insinuated that I have the temperament to accept this kind of shit.
After over a year Ziva DEMANDS to come to KILLCASTRO and drop some kind of bomb and then disappear until the spirits (meaning alcohol) move her.
The FUNNIEST part of this if you think about it is that ZIVA's name is NOT Ziva, that I could very well play the same ball and out her. There isn’t a god damn ounce of brain matter amongst the three of them. Why don’t the expose each ones real identity (including Ziva , who by the way has NO ONE bound to suffer if her real name is disclosed) and then have the moral authority to come with this kind of bullshit. It would be indeed give them some moral ground if the next post from that cesspool was "Ok Ziva's name is K....."
Let us see how PINGU they all are. And to think that not 48 hours ago I stuck my head out and defended any possible accusations that Ziva is a communist.
Ha, I never learn.. Shit will always find its way to the bottom.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

If Henry and Val didnt censor open speech. Then surely many of their readers would ask Val for an explaination of his outing of KC.

As it is, i doubt many of Val's visitors are even aware of his communist actions against KC. Just as is in Cuba, Val's servants are kept in the dark as to the true dark soul of their puppetmaster.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

KC,

Again, i was correct about Val "chavito" Prieto and his nest of chavitos/employees," including Ziva.

I said it before, and i will say it again. This was not an uncertain act by Val. Val was given aide and comfort by "others." He was too quick and confident in your "outing."

Vana said...

I bet Henry will rue the day he posted that caricature, shit is hitting the fan!

Vana said...

Ms Calabaza:

I have been called many names, I know how to defend myself, no need to run to anyone, most I ignore, not worth it, but no not mere words, words can hurt more than sticks and stones, words are not taken away by the wind, they can ruin a reputation.

Ms Calabaza said...

"Since this has turned into a public thing would someone mind telling us what this is all about?

Posted by pototo at March 30, 2008 06:05 PM"

Who will explain this to pototo? I can't. Henry will not let me post...

Vana said...

LOL I went to Babalunia and posted, I said

If anyone wants to know what this is about just go to killcastro.com or review of cuban american blogs.

am sure they will erase me after insulting me of course...lol

Vana said...

I got through guess I have not been flagged because is the first time I ever posted there

KillCastro said...

John :
You kindda confuse me with the "chavito" moniker. It could be the new exchangeable Cuban currency or the Monopoly money. If you mean chivato just throw me a wink this way, if you mean chavito as in "vendios" (Hell they were the only CA blog to actually ask people for cash, then wink twice :)

Going back in time, I realize that Ziva either makes impromptu appearances on our blog or decides to send us private emails. The private emails are either a ruse or her way to say something disagreeing with El ballenato and not be caught

Most private emails hint as to a disconnect with Prieto (hencethe privacy and Cloak & Dagger) and to quote her:

“I love Val but I can tell you I am not always in agreement with his positions"


I guess the rules in that place are VERY clear, you dissent, you’re out!

I do not know about how they handle this in that blog , but in Marianao they call this HYPOCRISY, because she disagrees with that TUB of lard (sorry just saw my first pic of Mr. Prieto, and yeah all the comparisons to a puerco , thrown by Alex , stick like fly paper) but does not dare express her voice in public.
Another poster who pointed out that we have been known to be scumbags, you know? HE IS right! And that is the difference, I think that when we are going for the jugular we even warn you we are going for the jugular and are we crass.. HELL yes! If we were not we'd be like one of the most quotable CA blogs around. So we do not pretend to be what we are not.
You piss us off, or say something that is even borderline stupid, you get blasted. BUT....
As Mr. T will testify we took an extensive amount of time explaining to those privileged students who visited Cuba what the Cuba reality was and the pay off was a unanimous. SORRY, DUDE our teacher duped us.
So it is pretty much on the intent of the poster, if you’re just being stupid because you don’t know any better, then we MAY opt to set you straight, if you are someone like Ziva who knows damn well, where we stand and how we deal with idiotic behavior (like claiming her post had been banned when it wasn’t) then expect a whack, cause you deserve it.

"but no not mere words, words can hurt more than sticks and stones, words are not taken away by the wind, they can ruin a reputation." -Vana

I guess you're right Vana. Maybe I'm just gettin' old and as long as no one is in danger, I say f^^k 'em.

Ms Calabaza said...

Woo-hoo!

good for you Vana!

Vana said...

LOL I went back and posted again

Oh I forgot to add so you can see the kind of chivato snake val prieto is..lol

I'm such a bitch!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

KC,


I "thought" that "chavito" meant a snitch. Hence, the term Val "chavito" Prieto or Val "the snitch" Prieto.

In addition, as i said earlier, i think Val had help in "outing" you.



Vana said: I bet Henry will rue the day he posted that caricature, shit is hitting the fan!




Vana, Henry is too stupid to have any type of regrets. Even if someone eventually puts a 2 by 4 upside his thick skull. He will still not understand!!

Vana said...

John

Chivato=Snitch, not chavito

Vana said...

Vana you don't get to comment here go back to Tellechea and cry to him Henry Asshole Gomes.

Yeah they deleted my comments, that is the message I got, but I think I inflicted some pain.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Vana,


Thanks for the correction.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Vana,


I guess you got told told off by Henry "widestance" Gomez. :)


MAT,

I guess this is one of three cyberslumbs that Henry was referring to.

Cari said...

Where is Val. Not a peep out of him.

Henry is out there trying to justify what Val did. It doesn't matter that the name is common or not, what matters is that Val intended to harm KC. Even if nothing happened to KC's family, Val is still an evil jerk for trying to harm them.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Carl,


Henry, Ziva, and Robert are Val's enablers. They have given aide and comfort to Val and his "outing" of KC. They are just as guilty as Val.

Anonymous said...

LOL

Val, the prima donna cry baby (if you have not yet done so, get some interns to tally the number of times that Val has admitted/claimed to have cried since he opened his echo chamber) is Mother of all Wannabe's.

Val, don't hate.

Ziva, Ziva, Ziba ... the Zionist that even other Zionists can't stand.

Henry? Henry? Oh please what can one say about someone who spends his waking hours chasing Oscar Corral and Carl Hiassen and hoping that bubblegum.blog readers will follow his hot links back to his boring-arse blog (which bears the same name as a paper edited by Mella, Cuba's first famous Marxist)? I guess the bright side of Henry (he and Fifo both are proud alumni of Belen - LOL) spending some much time online is that it gave his wifey more time to conceive without having to be bothered by him and his neoconservative, i-wish-i-was-Pat-Buchanan's-tampon arse.

warmest regards from the Cuban that Val loves to hate and Henry and Ziva love to censor and ban.

**EVIL LAUGH**

joep said...

isn't it funny the cartoon post at Babalu generates 26 or so comments, and MaT's commentary births nearly 50 follow-ups.

Maybe Henry and Perez Hilton were roomies at Belen. They even look alike, fat, effeminate, and their voices.... well... Walk like a duck, looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, pero ademas de pato es cherna!

Val will NOT, and i repeat, Val WILL NOT come out from wherever his insecure crybaby behind is hiding...

to be sure, he is reading because the i-need-to-be-noticed part of him controls him

remember that about a year or two or three years ago, Val posted a pitiful anecdote about how a realtor in SoBe offended his wife (but she took the check anyway) and then when the same guy that Val had sworn violent pugilistic vengenance upon the realtor sees the realtor at a wedding and DID NOTHING

That's because here we are free to comment and are never censored, Manuel trully believes in freedom of speech, but the Babalunians have censored so many people that soon they will be doing the posting and the commenting amongst themselves.

Val will address this issue tomorrow.

So Henry is Robin for Batman (what's going on in la baticueva brother?)
and Henry is Raul for Val's Fidel.
Pieces of crap, both of them.

Do you find that your nails immediately after each manicure? A good top coat will keep your nails in fabulous condition for up to a week! Be sure you don’t confuse it with clear nail polish. Buy the top coat instead of a clear nail polish.
