Notorious no-show David Carson has been the butt of two pretty funny jokes in the last few weeks and we’d be downright irresponsible if we didn’t make fun of him, too.

First, Debbie Millman vamped on “Design Matters” when Carson cancelled a few weeks ago by reading the transcript of a previous interview and performing a somewhat brilliant intro. We guess it helps to know in advance that there is a very good chance your guest is going to flake.

But the Be A Design Group boys seem to be seriously offended by his absence since they created this comic strip and wrote a pretty scathing rant, calling him, fondly, “David Car5on.” Marc English has more good dirt in the comments.

The only thing that puzzles us is Carson’s been showing up on time, primped, pressed and tanned for his Helvetica Q&As
