Cartoon Saturday

A criminally insane killer from eastern Washington state is at large after escaping during a field trip to the county fair (???) organized by his mental hospital; a laboratory technician has been arrested for the murder of Yale university student Annie Le; scientists have found the first rocky planet located outside our solar system (although it is not, as previously reported, near the orbit of the first Bullwinkle planet located outside our solar system); a 15-year old boy committed suicide on Thursday by jumping in front of a Washington DC Metro rail train...he is the ninth person to do so this year, and all but two of those have died; and people are discovering that you can't even give away old tube-style television sets, even when they're in perfect condition.

Time to crank up Cartoon Saturday to ease your troubles...

Identity theft is a serious problem in which criminals can literally steal your life. Don't you wish there was a punishment that fit the crime?

Some problems have always been with us. And so have the first responses to our initial attempts to solve them...

Opinions differ as to whether or not we're on the way out of the recession, but one set of opinions that hasn't changed is the responsibility of "creative accounting" for the loss of trillions of dollars in wealth of ordinary persons. It's tough to make that funny, but you can try...

This one reflects the new reality in how Agnes and I evaluate potential investments...

We haven't had any penguin cartoons for a while, and penguins are always good for a laugh. I sometimes wonder how a penguin cartoonist would look at us...

And, finally, I don't think this one needs any introduction or commentary...

Avast, ye lubbers! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. We all know that pirates really aren't funny (just ask anyone who sails around the Horn of Africa), but a little whistling past the graveyard never hurts. A few days ago I saw a cartoon (which I didn't copy, and now can't find, dammit) that showed two pirates texting each other ... "R" ... "R" ... "R" ... "R"...

Well, I thought it was funny, anyhow.

Our forecast for today is for a sunny day with highs in the mid-seventies...maybe I can get some work done on our poor, suffering yard. But first things first - we have to try out the new waffle iron we bought this week! My waistline will hate me, but it'll be worth it.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

I'm sure Jenkins knows the old saying 'figures don't lie but liars can figure'.


"is at large after escaping"

HEY! You don't have to let EVERYbody know. I back on my meds now!
