I submitted this on August 8, 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org — one of the Google Groups to which I regularly post. This original illustration is entitled “Gang Hang.” I wrote this very short anecdote to accompany the posting of my illustration:
He was captured by a rival gang, who decided to hang him on their steel gallows. His weight was supported by a remote-controlled platform that drops every so slowly downward. They told him he might live if his feet stayed in contact with the platform. They lied, but he was stupid enough to believe them. Meanwhile, as he struggled to save himself, the steel noose around his thick neck started squeezing the life out of him slowly but surely. The blood dripping from his mouth cannot be a good sign. The rope around his balls made certain that he would retain such a thick, massive manhood for the enjoyment of the spectators.
