Cartoon Saturday

A boatload of Somali pirates lost their boat, weapons, and pride when they attacked a ship whose call for help was answered by the destroyer USS Farragut; unknown gunmen murdered 25 people in an Iraqi village; singer Erykah Badu faces a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge from Dallas, Texas police after stripping while walking down an Dallas street (it was apparently for a music video); the economy added 162,000 jobs in March...not surprisingly, Republicans are blaming President Obama because the number wasn't higher; and a domestic extremist group has sent letters to 30 state governors, demanding they resign as part of their "Restore America Plan"...which calls for those governors to "be removed" if they don't resign.

Oh, baby, do we ever need Cartoon Saturday.

You might need to think about this one for a minute, but clowns are always good for a cartoon...

I always thought that the advertising line ought to be "paying for a diamond is forever." This is, after all, the industry that told you it was appropriate to spend three months' salary (assuming you actually still have a job) for that rock to show your affection...

You've gotta do what you've gotta do...

The importance of good communication...and pronunciation...

Another one of those "gotta look closely" cartoons...

And finally, for those of you who still believe in that "trickle-down economics" voodoo thing...

It's going to be a gorgeous Easter weekend here in Northern Virginia...time to get my garden planted and continue the ongoing work of fixing the wreckage of my landscaping left in the wake of last winter's blizzards. Good thing I like staying busy.

Have a great weekend. More thoughts tomorrow.

'Flight of the Hindenburg' [snicker]

Not such a good weekend predicted here - lots of rain, unfortunately. Shame as it's the first re-enactment of the season :-(

Happy Easter. I don't feel sorry for those pirates though.

I know I was here. I thought I left a comment. I guess I didn't .... until now.

I liked the one about communication. Hope you're having a good weekend in the garden.

A great kleptomaniac cartoon.
