Cartoon Saturday


It's been another wonderful week, proving that March Madness doesn't necessarily always refer to basketball pools ...

The most hated man in America, fiercely bigoted Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps, died at the age of 84; Microsoft has strongly defended its right to break into its customers' accounts and read their e-mails; a new app developed for the iPhone uses online data to plot the positions of people you know based on their most recent social posts so you can avoid them; nearly 40 people were killed in a wave of suicide car bombings in cities across Iraq; and Malaysian Airlines flight 370 is still missing in the Pacific, nearly two weeks after it disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

And winter still isn't over yet. I don't know about you, but I can use the cartoons ...

This week's selection of theme cartoons was inspired by yesterday's celebration of the birthday of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach ... let's take a look at some cartoons about music and musicians ...

Sometimes the player needs a little help ...


One wonders if stringed instruments are covered under the Affordable Care Act ...


They're actually quite easy to find without the detector ... you can hear them a mile away ...


Good advice for some amateur musicians ...


It ain't over until the ... well, you know ...


Moving on to other topics, which bottled water do you prefer (considering that they probably all actually come from the city taps in Scranton, Pennsylvania) ...


A problem I've been having more and more as I get older ...


There are plenty of racy websites out there, as long as you have the ... bread ...


This week's hideous pun cartoon ...


And finally, thinking back to my earlier post that asked the question, "Who Gets the Statue?" ...


There you have it for this week's Cartoon Saturday. Although last Thursday was the theoretical First Day of Spring, the message apparently has not reached the right ears ... we're looking for yet another winter "event" of some sort on Tuesday. Oy.

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

Hmm....great insights into music.

I learned when the opera is finally over, how to supplement my meager musical talents with Clef Notes, and was given the existential knowledge that even some celebrities can be unknown.

And perhaps just as well.

Finally, no more of Phelps's venom. He appealed to the dark side of some peoples' natures.
