Cartoon Sat... uh ... Thursday

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians are still in the streets, protesting the evidently fraudulent reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad; the grim search for wreckage of Air France flight 447 continues in the Atlantic Ocean, and chances are that most of it will never be found; two Pennsylvania teenagers will go to jail (but not long enough) for beating a Mexican immigrant to death; as if nuclear weapons and general craziness weren't enough, it seems that North Korea is running a global insurance fraud scheme; and the summer storm season is hammering the midwest with tornadoes and heavy thunderstorms.

Fear not - Cartoon Saturday rides to your rescue! On Thursday, no less.

Yes, Cartoon Saturday is showing up two days early this week because, as I warned you yesterday, Agnes and I will be spending the next few days visiting our grandchildren (oh, yes ... and their parents, too) in Ohio, and chances are pretty good that I won't have my mind on things like blog posts. Go ahead and sue.

We start off this week with two cartoons that are nothing to sneeze at ...

and ...
What with Swine Flu (or H1N1, or whatever), it's a wonder anyone is willing to show up for anything anymore ...

A while back, Gilahi managed to get several days of posts out of the sheer joy of participating in the civic responsibility of jury duty. I don't think this was him ...

Yes, this gives a whole new meaning to the term, "Body Shop" ...

And finally, in honor of all you fathers out there ...

There's a chance I may be able to post tomorrow morning, but don't count on anything new here until Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning. I hate to have to tell you that you're being trumped by the World's Most Adorable Grandchildren but, sadly, you are. But don't worry - I'll tell you all about it later.

To my fellow fathers - Happy Fathers' Day! And remember - anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy.

Have a good day. More thoughts when we get back.

Thankfully, no, I wasn't the defendant. By the end of the ordeal, however, I was ready to climb up on a roof and start picking people off.

I loved the sneezing ones :)

I hear they held the hypochondriac convention and the procrastinators convention at the same time to save money.

I'll miss you tomorrow night--hopefully we won't be as men-lite as we were last week. Have a great visit and Happy Father's Day.

Hurry back. I'm exhibiting signs of Bilbo withdrawals. I need my Bilbo fix...and fast.
