Cartoon Saturday


Want snow? Let me know, I'll send you all you want.

The east coast continues to suffer blizzard conditions from a monster snowstorm that is pounding the region and leaving two feet or more of snow driven into huge drifts by high winds; the city of Flint, Michigan (where I have relatives) continues to grapple with a public health disaster caused by the decision to switch the city's water supply to the contaminated water of the Flint River; self-styled defenders of the Constitution continue their occupation of a remote bird sanctuary in Oregon, and are quickly exhausting the patience of local residents; in the town of Renton, Washington, a young woman was shot and injured by a man fumbling with his handgun in a crowded theater; and an inquiry in the United Kingdom has concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin probably approved an operation by Russian agents to kill former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in 2006.

This past Wednesday, January 20th, was Penguin Awareness Day ... and so, to make sure you remain aware of penguins, this week's cartoons are dedicated to everyone's favorite formally-attired birds.

I wonder how she knows ...


Who, indeed?


Small talk with the date ...


It's probably more fun than herding cats ...


Penguin implants? ...


CSI: Antarctica ...


Oops ...


Well, that's true enough ...


You had to see this one coming ...





Given the weather conditions outside my study window, penguins seem to be a good topic for today. And here's an extra bonus: your guide to the most important varieties of penguins ...


Have a good day. Stay warm and dry, and be here tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

A fun collection. Had never considered penguin skinny dipping!

Skinny dipping, really? Hope you are safe there in the winter storm. Looks like you might be snowed in for a bit.
