Cartoon Saturday


Well, the Fourth of July weekend is now a week in the past, and we're on the downhill side of the summer. We appear to be on the downhill side of a lot of other things, too ...

In Crossville, Tennessee, a man's house was robbed by a thief while his accomplice distracted the homeowner by skinny-dipping in his pool*; ten counties in northern Colorado are considering seceding from the state and forming their own, new state, because they don't think the state government cares enough about their interests; speaking of Colorado, a federal judge has ruled, in a lawsuit filed by a Colorado resident, that citizens can legally carry firearms in the parking lot of a post office (but not inside the post office itself)**; traitorous ass clown Edward Snowdon has demonstrated both his ignorance of international politics and the bankruptcy of his motives by asking for political asylum in Russia; and Saudi Arabian princess Meshael Alayban, one of the wives of Saudi Prince Abdulrahman bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz al Saud, is under arrest in Los Angeles, charged with human trafficking for holding a domestic servant against her will.

Oy, vay, do we ever need the cartoons ...

This week, in honor of the new Superman movie Man of Steel, we start off with a selection of cartoons about Superman ...

Even super heroes have their bad moments ...


And their worse moments ...


And even super heroes need to take care of themselves with periodic health checkups ...


And they can use a nice massage once in a while, too ...


Age catches up with all of us, even the super ones ...


And we wrap up the Superman collection with a look at one of the odd problems you can encounter when you're faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive ...


Moving on to other cartoon subjects, one can never underestimate the importance of good marketing choices ...


I could really use two of these, one for at home and one for the office ...


The motion appears to be carried ...


And finally for this week, I think Agnes is looking for this app for me for my birthday ...


And that's Cartoon Saturday for this week. I'm experiencing geographical bachelorhood for the next week or two while Agnes is in Germany visiting her parents, and I think I need to work on my image ... everyone keeps asking me when I'll be throwing the poker nights, keg parties, and other raucous masculine entertainments. I did try to hire a pole dancer, but unfortunately the only ones available were Czechs and Bulgarians. Bummer.

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

Bilbo, a tour de force lampooning of the Man of Steel! And the last one, unfortunately,is not available for the style-challenged guys.

Suthering?

I wonder about the Crossville, TN guy. Did he take pictures? Or he simply a towel boy?

Snake Oil might be a viable product name if pushed by a politician!

I need an upgrade from a wading pool!

I found a Pole dancer for you. I gave her your number. She'll be arriving at the airport in a few days.

Jackhammer massages and riviting urination. The man of steel has it all!

Hire a pole dancer, not a Pole dancer. You don't want to see the polka!

Superman was never so funny. Great cartoons!
