Skrlin, the Magnificent, Creates Another Masterpiece: Toast Me Goats

OCT 22, 2015

Did the devil make Niagara Falls' Mayor Paul Dyster do it?

Did the mayor's desire to develop a trash and recycling mascot for his ill-fated garbage program cause him to do a deal with the Evil One?

Only the mayor knows for sure what prompted him to consort with the occult image of Totes McGoat. These are the questions that Skrlin's most recent cartoon addresses as Paul Dyster is portrayed as a Devil who toasts Totes over a roaring hell fire.

While the mayor has set fire to McGoats, the implication of the artwork is clear: McGoats is merely the most recent victim of a devilish administration. This is the same mayor who has frozen residents with his Nightmare on 72nd Street. This is the city's top elected official who sat pat as heinous rats roam the streets. The same mayor who refuses to entertain the obvious likelihood of a serial killer operating in town. The same mayor who spent the casino funds, rewarded city hall friends with pay hikes, overtime and stipends. The very same mayor who built a $50 million courthouse and $44 million train station. Taxes up, crime up, spending's as if the Devil himself were calling the shots in the city.
