AI Christmas Jokes!

My writer friend, Scott Emmons, prompted artificial intelligence to write some Christmas jokes. I then downloaded Wonder and created AI art using his riddles as prompts--

This is a good opportunity to practice laughing at our soon-to-be robot masters' jokes.

How to Draw a Cat. Step by Step.

 This occurred to me. I thought I'd make it before someone else did.

The Mistress of Kung Fu Vs. Iron Sis!

In the 70's, one of my all-time favorite comics was Iron Fist. Written by Chris Claremont and drawn by John Byrne. Byrne once drew parody art of Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu and Iron Fist. It appeared on back cover of the magazine FOOM as Shang-She, Mistress of Kung Fu and Iron Sis, while Fu Manchu became Su Manchu. I loved it at the time, but disliked the color treatment, seen below. (I didn't understand printing in only two colors to save costs.) Even though it's cool in its own way, a little piece of me never accepted its crudeness. So, I decided to scratch that tiny itch and, through the magic of Photoshop (and manual labor), make a full color version! (Using the color of the times.)

Here's the original image...

And here's the front cover of Foom #9, March 1975.
