Cartoon Saturday


It's hard to believe we're two weeks into July, isn't it?

GOP presidential wannabe Jeb Bush was roundly criticized this week for saying Americans need to work longer hours, although he didn't specify which jobs for those who have to work more than one to make ends meet; a massive data breach at the government's Office of Personnel Management may have caused detailed, sensitive personal information on nearly 21.5 million people both in and outside of government to fall into the hands of persons unknown ... but who are suspected to speak Chinese; at Yellowstone National Park, bison attacked two more visitors over the past week, for a total of four attacks in the park so far this season; Greece is asking for another $55 billion in loans to hold off financial catastrophe, bringing the total amount of its borrowing to 240 billion Euros, or about 263 billion dollars; and the GOP, struggling to overcome its image as an intolerant and xenophobic party, tried - unsuccessfully - to rein in firebrand candidate Donald Trump.

The news is as yucky as usual, but it's the middle of summer, and in summer the thoughts of healthy young people turn to ... well ... sex. The thoughts of healthy older people turn that way, too, but the younger ones are probably more likely to get lucky. Let's lead off this week with a collection of theme cartoons about sex ...

There are different ways of looking at this particular issue, and the Supreme Court isn't likely to intervene on this one ...


It's not just a human problem ...


There's an old joke about the guy who complained that he got a sweater for Christmas, when he'd really hoped for a moaner or a screamer. Here's a twist on that one ...


That reminds me ... I need to schedule my next physical ...


Yes ... vouchers are the answer to every problem, from education to medical treatment to ... well, you know ...


Various animals have various displays they use to attract the opposite sex ...


Okay, enough about sex. How about a medieval pun?


I feel this way most days ...


This reminds me ... have you seen the big action movie Terminator: Genisys yet? 


And finally for this week, if you're part of the 99%, this one may be for you ...


I hope I've helped you recover from the rigors of the past week. This weekend we're dog-sitting with Clara once again, so we're pretty dog-gone busy, ha, ha. Enjoy your weekend, and come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

Arnold had it right!

A screamer is really good; it's like having a personal cheerleader.

I work too much already. You can't get blood out of a turnip./

War Eagle!

Great cartoons! Especially the peacock one. All too true.

I think I may still have some carbon paper.

I'm working as hard as I can. Just too tired. Peacocks are such showoffs and guys with hot cars are too,

Hot cars are hard to resist, but not too sure about that driver! It is really going to be entertaining to read your take on all the campaigning in the upcoming year! How will we ever get to a primary?
