Dog No Take Only Throw
‘Dog No Take Only Throw’ is a webcomic about a dog who enjoys throwing balls from the sky. The story has several elements, from the parody of the ‘Baby Boomers’ to the origins of the webcomic itself.
The parody of Baby Boomers
Earlier this week, a parody of the Baby Boomers went viral after its creator tweeted it. This viral trend is all about generational teasing. A group of Gen X artists decided to satirize the boomer generation. They posted a comic called “Dog No Take, Only Throw” which has received a lot of attention.
The satire targets a generation that was able to own a home with a mortgage, affordable college tuition, and a strong job market. The boomers also viewed their pets as part of the family and their pets as their companions. In addition, they often had pets in their backyards.
The group also uses a parody of The Beatles in this comic. The Beatles were the world-changing group that ruled the music scene. In this comic, the last panel shows a close up of a dog with the text “ONLY THROW” in all caps. It is also in large font.
The parody of The Beatles is a good homage to the boomers’ legacy and how they were able to change the world. The group has also targeted their demographic and made fun of the millennial generation, which has an extremely competitive job market, heavy student loan debt, and heavy medical expenses. They also have an inability to adapt to the digital world.
