Yesterday, we watched as GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain told reporters that comments he made about his plan to install an electrified fence on the U.S./Mexico border capable of killing immigrants trying to come into the country illegally was just a joke.

Then we watched him say he might seriously be considering installing an electrified fence on the U.S./Mexico border capable of killing immigrants trying to come into the country illegally.

Then we watched him say he wasn't sure if he was joking about the fence or not, he just didn't want to offend anybody.

See our report on Cain's visit to the Valley here.

The confusion has since been captured on Youtube in the form of a cartoon, compliments of a frequent New Times readers.

Watch Herman Cain's comedic confusion Toonified below -- it's pretty hilarious.
