Gallery of Danger Signs Reveals Cartoons in Peril

Cats and coyotes seem to take the overwhelming brunt of animated violence and persecution, but a new wave of brutality is plaguing an underappreciated and oft overlooked segment of the cartoon population. The photo-sharing Web site Flickr is currently hosting thousands of pictures from around the world that depict incidents in the ongoing, wholesale slaughter of innocent stick men and women.

Hopefully, the "Stick Figures in Peril" gallery will help raise awareness of the ongoing purge of stick families so that no more innocents will suffer obscure and humiliating deaths from lawn mower "accidents," swarms of murderous jellyfish, ravenous vacuum cleaners, and, yes, even crucifixion. While other sites may naively celebrate odd signs from foreign locations for comedic purposes, perhaps the new Flickr campaign will promote an end to this needless and disturbing stick figure genocide.
