Cartoon Saturday

Role model Lindsey Lohan has been given a stern lecture by a judge who says that next time she screws up she's really, no kidding going to jail; a boy who was feared to have been carried away by a runaway helium balloon may have been set up for publicity by his father; dozens of people have been killed in two days of terror attacks in Pakistan; the United States is running its biggest ($1.42 trillion) budget deficit since 1945; and Wall Street megabank Goldman Sachs, bailed out by American taxpayers just a year ago, is poised to deliver billions of dollars in bonuses to its employees at a time when millions of Americans are still unable to obtain credit.

Don't worry...Cartoon Saturday will kiss it and make it better.

This cartoon is so wrong, on so many levels, that I just couldn't pass it up...

Nowadays, it seems every trade is looking for some niche in the new "green" economy...

So, what's on your mind today, gents...?

I underwent a minor surgical procedure earlier this week. Of course, what constitutes minor rather depends on your perspective, doesn't it...?

This cartoon is clearly talking about life in Washington, DC...except that we call those things Republicans and Democrats...

And finally, in case you were wondering about the surging level of stupidity evident in politics nowadays, here's an explanation...

Stupid is a condition, ignorance is a choice. I couldn't have put it better myself.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts coming.

The 2nd cartoon reminded me of as article I read earlier today about a 'green' brothel: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,26221564-401,00.html

From Amandas article - For Ms Goetz, the brothel is "a business like any other" and prostitution is a legal sector in Germany with around 400,000 employees.

Bilbo has never mentioned this in any of his German travelogs.

1st cartoon - How old do you have to be to get that one?

"Green" brothels? I suppose these are in the green light district now.
