Cartoon Saturday


We've made it to the last Saturday in April ... time is really flying, isn't it?

Two American hostages were accidentally killed in a drone attack that targeted members of al-Qaeda; in Georgia, five student nurses on their way to finish their first set of clinical rotations were killed in a multivehicle traffic accident; the Houston home of former president George H.W. Bush was not protected by a working alarm system for at least 13 months, according to a report by the Department of Homeland Security; a powerful earthquake has struck the Himalayan nation of Nepal, leaving more than 600 people dead; and in Pakistan - a very dangerous place to be a woman or to speak freely - someone who did both - women's rights activist Sabeen Mahmud - was murdered by gunmen who also seriously wounded her mother.

With all that's bad in the world, it's nice to think that summer is just around the corner ... but of course with summer comes something else to bug us besides itinerant politicians - bugs. Thus, our selection of theme cartoons deals with our six (or more)-legged friends ...

I feel like this on the dance floor sometimes ...


Modern insect traps need modern lures ...


You can't be too careful ...


Problems flies have ...


Even bugs can attract unwanted attention with PDA ...


"No longer in a relationship?" ...


Moving on to other topics, I might have seen this one coming ...


This one, too ...


I think this is how it would work for me ...


And finally, you need to be sure you got the whole message ...


There you have it - this week's selection of ya-ha's to help you recover from the past week and coast into the weekend. Later this morning Agnes and I will be headed out to watch our granddaughters at their ice skating lesson, and then this evening, we're going to a couples' date-night cooking class that features Basque recipes: Stuffed Piquillo Peppers, Serrano Wrapped Cod with Lemon Aioli, Chickpeas with Asparagus and Smoked Paprika, and Sweet Almond Empanadas. We'll get to cook it, then eat it.

How much better does it get?

Have a good day and a great weekend. See you tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

I can understand why we didn't hear more about Red Riding Hood's family in the fairy tail. Great cartoons, all!

Spring is here and so are the bugs.

I happened to see the last one just last night while catching up on my New Yorker daily calendar. I laughed out loud! Glad to see you sharing it.

Couldn't take a picture, but saw a store sale sign:
50% OOF. Thought of Great Moments in Editing.

Happy Spring weekend!

That last one should be a classic!
