Cartoon Saturday

Israel and Hamas are still slugging it out in Gaza; 82-year-old Hugh Hefner's new girlfriends are 19-year old twins; four of five Somali pirates drowned when their skiff overturned in rough seas after they collected a a $3 million ransom payment; a giant panda named Gu Gu at the Beijing zoo has tried to eat his third tourist; and president-elect Obama has nominated Leon Panetta to be the Director of the CIA...Mr Panetta's intelligence experience consists of holding the door to the Oval Office open for the CIA analysts who gave daily briefings to former President Clinton.

Cartoon Saturday is here to help you cope.

I don't quite know how I let myself get sucked into the swirling vortex of the endless boob discussions (Rima started it, Mike joyfully kept it up, and Fiona has now designated me as the Boobmeister), but since it really seems to draw in the comments, why should I argue with success? Herewith two boob-related cartoons...

Not long after I spotted this one, my friend Katherine e-mailed me to see if I'd seen it, decisively proving that I really need an image makeover:

I've had this one in my collection for a long time, and sent it to Miss Cellania a while back when she was blogging about ... well ... ladies' unmentionables, so you may have seen it there. I still think it's a classic:

The other topic that seemed to draw commenters out of the woodwork was my post about the deer eating my landscaping. Many of the comments dealt with how to keep the deer away from the plants. But what if the tables were turned...?

Cell phones can be as annoying as they are ubiquitous. This week, two cartoons about cell phones hit on the same general theme...

And...

And finally, since Hollywood seems to have a thing for remaking and reissuing classic films (seen the new version of The Day the Earth Stood Still yet?), what happens when the literary world tries to update the classics? The mind boggles...

Well, I guess I should get moving and find something to serve up for breakfast. I'll need all the energy I can get to face the next round of the never-ending struggle to clean up my study. I'm making progress. Really. Sort of. I just need a bigger dumpster.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

The 4th cartoon reminds me of my cousin's wedding. The bride really did have her cell phone ring during the ceremony. Thankfully, she knew better than to answer it!

The last one is a hoot!

Cartoons 4 & 6, scratch them off my list.

I went to see the pictures of Hefner's new girl friends but there was only a picture of an old man there.

Love the Wonderbra one :-)
That made me laugh - almost as much as the boobies one :-D

Hey Bilbo - how was breakfast? I've crawled to the end of the first week back in the office and am reeling.
