Cartoon Saturday

Yes, it's Saturday morning once again. The sun is singing, the birds are shining, Agnes is grumping about having to work on Saturday, and we're looking forward to going to a friend's wedding this afternoon.

Time for Cartoon Saturday!

We lead off this week with two cartoons with the same punch line:

In honor of the 100th anniversary of Ian Fleming's birth this week, a new James Bond novel, Devil May Care, was published. And, of course, we're all looking forward to the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace, later this year. And then there's this...

I love Frank and Ernest cartoons, if for no other reason than they're so silly most of the time...

And finally, a cartoon that speaks to those of us who live within groaning distance of the nation's capitol:

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Hey Bilbo :-)

MB and I work for the Ministry of Defence, and when he was a young rebellious type he used to answer the phone with 'War Office, do you want a fight?'.

I stopped by to say hi! have a blessed Sunday. =)

CQ: love the phone intro. And how often did people actually react to it? Seems to me people rarely actually listen to what is said when a phone is answered.

CQ - I agree with Katherine... that's a world-class phone message! I used to work in a facility run by the Army, where they had specific messages they had to read when they answered the phone, and it seemed like everything had to be run together in one breath:

"Four-fifteenth-Messkit-Repair- Company-Private-Snuffy-speaking- this-line-is-not-secure-can-I-help- you-SIR!!"

Most people were gasping for breath after answering the phone...
