Sorry that this message isn't a notification of a new parody, but I figure this is a necessary note to send. The long and short of it is this: after three years as Butcher of Sacred Cow Burgers, I have decided to hang up my cleaver. I figured I should let you all know why.
Foremost in the making of this decision is a very happy turn of events: I am going to be a father. My wife informed me of this miraculous news just days before Father's Day of this year.
The responsibility of becoming a parent is not one I take lightly. In short, my waking hours are now wholly dedicated to my family in every way. Doing political parodies for Sacred Cow Burgers has a been fun hobby, but it takes up far too much of my free time and has never been intended as a source of income. Thus, I'm hanging up my cleaver and putting away the butcher's block.
I want to thank you all for your interest in my work and especially for the outpouring of support that so many of you gave during my bout with cancer and other health issues in the past two years. I am happy to say that, thanks to your prayers, my health has vastly improved over the past six months. I now work out seven times a week and feel stronger than I have in many years past. My lungs are clear, my heart is strong, my mind is sharp, and my eyes are...well, three outta four ain't bad.
In closing, I send my best wishes to all of you. I've enjoyed making parodies for you folks, and appreciated your input and support over the years. I've had a good run as your Butcher, but now it's time for me to be a full-time family man. Thank you all and God bless.
Jay D. Dyson
I always enjoyed your work, Jay. You will be missed.
Very talented. My thanks also.
Farewell. One of my favorite web sites.
Is it already gone? There's some good stuff there.
Great news about Jay becoming a father, but I will really miss Sacred Cow Burgers!
You'll be back!!!!
U betta be back!
Congratulations, and thanks for all the laughs!
I have visited your site on multiple occasions. You have a great eye for humor.
You responsibility is to take care of yourself and your family. Do what you know is right.
I hope your endeavors lead you to success in all good ways.
The site is still there, he's just saying he quitting it. I wish he would have passed it on to another.
We will all miss the brilliant visual parodies created by this marvelous talent. God Bless You!
Thanks again and God Bless you, your wife, and your child and anymore that may follow. Thanks again friend.
I understand your need to get your priorities in order and I applaud that. But you have to admit how much fun you had making some of those parodies. Don't stop doing it, just do it for fun when you have time. And you'll know when you need to do one. From time to time some person or some group will be just begging for you to nail them with one of your precision guided parody missiles and you'll rack one up and obliterate them.
Jay, thanks for all the laughs. We will miss you greatly. You've made a very worthy choice. Hope you are able to come back in a few years.
Thanks, Jay! I frankly didn't know about your cancer... thanks for keeping the humor flowing!
