Cartoon Saturday

As the economy continues its free-fall, the number of registered cars on American highways is projected to decrease this year for the first time since World War II; in France, the credit crunch is being blamed for a dramatic decline in the sale of sex toys; a Brazilian man stole a single-engine plane and crashed it into the parking lot of a shopping mall, killing himself and his 5-year-old child; Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera has been featured in Forbes magazine's world's billionaires report as a "self-made" billionaire; and the Supreme Court in Afghanistan has upheld a 20-year prison sentence for an Afghan university student journalist accused of blasphemy.

Thank goodness for Cartoon Saturday!

Don't show this one to Mike...

Have you seen the masterful evisceration of over-the-top CNBC reporter Jim Cramer by Jon Stewart? You can see an edited version of it here. And you can relate to these two cartoons...

and ...

OCGirl wrote in her blog the other day about some of the things people do in interviews to make sure they don't get hired. Sometimes, you just need to think carefully about the answer to the interviewer's question...

I just liked this one for being so utterly non-PC...

Someone once said that marriage is a compromise entered into by two people, one of whom can't sleep with the window closed, and one who can't sleep with it open. And then there's this take on what really happens in fairy-tale weddings...

The weekend weather forecast here in Northern Virginia is for two days of dreary, rainy, cold. Agnes and I will try to ignore it with some dance coaching this afternoon and a day spent with The Cutest Grandchild East of the Ohio Border tomorrow.


Life can be good.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
