Cartoon Saturday


February is nearly over, and not soon enough.

A fire at a luxury apartment skyscraper in Dubai engulfed several floors on at least three sides of the building and dropped flaming debris to the ground; conservative commentator Bill O'Reilly angrily reacted to accusations that he had exaggerated his "combat situation experience," claiming that when the truth came out, his accuser would find himself "in the kill zone;" North Korean despot Kim Jong Un debuted a bizarre new haircut and oddly abbreviated eyebrows; an infectious new, tick-borne virus has been discovered in the wake of a Kansas man's death; and in the American northeast, it's so cold that both Lake Erie and Niagara Falls have frozen over.

At least we have cartoons to help us laugh through our chattering teeth.

This week, in honor of the record-low temperatures we've been experiencing, our theme is snowmen, winter, and yucky cold.

Sometimes, all that snow might not be a bad thing ...


Demolition in the far north ...


I think our friends from Buffalo to Boston can appreciate this one ...


Trying to stay positive ...


Even snow ladies like to stay groomed in tune with current practices ...


The birds, the bees, and the snowballs ...


Snowmen can enjoy horror movies, too ...


Marriage counseling for snowpeople ...


You know it's really cold when ...


The winter of our discontent*. Really ...


And there you have it ... cartoons for the snow and cold to celebrate that there's only one week to go before we can escape from February.

Agnes and I had planned to drive up to Baltimore today to check out Binkert's German meat market and enjoy lunch with fellow blogger Kathy and her husband Dick, but the combination of Kathy's miserable cold and yet another approaching winter storm have convinced us to stay at home and try to keep warm instead. Winter has to end sometime, right?

Have a good day. Stay inside, keep your pets warm, drink hot chocolate (preferably spiked with peppermint schnapps), and eat comfort food. Oh, and come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday.

More thoughts then.

Spring will come, so we might as well laugh thru the winter. We have a cherry tree down the street here in Texas with blossoms on it, and the weather is turning cold this week. Might be nipped! Have a great weekend!

We had power outages earlier, so there's a certain anxiety that we might lose power again. Still, those were very funny cartoons; more funny because the weather is so much with us.

Is the first one a Beverly Hills snowwoman?

I don't think that salt is going to help those eskimos much. They may need calcium chloride and beet juice.
