Cartoon Saturday


I should have stayed on vacation ...

A funeral director in Philadelphia has been arrested and charged with abuse of a corpse months after three decomposing bodies were found in her garage; at least 21 people were killed in a terror attack on a hotel in Bamako, Mali; UFC champion Ronda Rousey suffered a devastating loss to challenger Holly Holm when she was knocked out by a vicious kick to the head; European countries agreed to new steps aimed at securing Europe’s borders in the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris, even as governors in many American states said that they would refuse to accept refugees from Syria; and Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy analyst convicted of spying for Israel, was released on Friday after spending nearly 30 years in prison.

In honor of our recently-completed vacation, today's collection of theme cartoons deals with ... what else? ... vacations.

This is why we cruise with Princess ... no confusion ...


It's what you get when you go with the bargain cruise lines ...


Why Agnes helps pick out my wardrobe ...


Remember when flying used to be fun and an adventure? ...


You really do need to be careful when you read the advertising ...


Turning to other topics, I think I know how our government makes its policy choices ...


It's only a matter of time before this service catches on ...


Everyone's a specialist ...


Finally for this week, sometimes you need to get creative to convince the children they need to do their homework ...


And that's it for this week's edition of Cartoon Saturday ... I hope you enjoyed it. It looks as if it's going to be a chilly weekend here in NoVa, perhaps a good one to do the fall lawn cleanup as we get ready for what promises to be a long winter. I also need to prep some more posts, as we'll be headed out to Dayton, Ohio for the Thanksgiving holiday, and I know you won't want to miss your expected Bilbo fixes. I'll get right on it ...

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

1. You included Rhonda Rousy's defeat in your opening paragraph like it was a bad thing. It wasn't.

2. Great 'toons. I especially liked the last two.

3. Thanks for taking care of your regular posts even when your gone.

4. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your kin!

Great cruising cartoons. The first two were real surprises!

John, I take no position on whether or not Ronda Rousy's defeat was a good or bad thing from the perspective of the sport ... however, I would contend (probably without much fear of contradiction), that being kicked in the head with a leg like a steam hammer is generally a pretty bad thing.

So, when you cruise Princess - do they have real princesses on board? Or even Disney princesses?

"I should have stayed on vacation."

You could be on permanent vacation if you wanted to be.

Or if I could afford to be, Mike! I'm still working on developing my post-retirement skill set, like eating only three times a week.
