Cartoon Saturday


Two weeks ago, we were up to our earlobes in snow. Now it's in the 50's and raining. Oh, well ... at least I don't have to shovel it.

Italian actor Raphael Schumacher was killed when a stage hanging scene went tragically wrong; one person was killed and at least three were injured in Manhattan on Friday when a construction crane collapsed during the morning rush hour; one person was killed when a Somali airliner was crippled by a bomb ... the airliner made a successful emergency landing, and the man who was killed was apparently the bomber; six people, one of them a child, were found dead in a Chicago house; and a group of Chinese investors are planning to buy the Chicago Stock Exchange.

This week, in honor of the political and social positions espoused by some presidential wannabes, we feature cartoons about cave men ...

Do you suppose this is how the term "fast food" came about? ...


Exhibits were easier to curate back then ...


The tradition of opposing government support to the arts goes back a long way ...


Before camera phones, Facebook, and Instagram, there was ...


As I was saying ...

 

And then the fight started ...


Art criticism goes way back ...


High tech in the Stone Age ...


Grange Fair stand, 20,000 BC ...


It's always been a problem for hosts and hostesses to face ...


And there you have it: a Stone Age Cartoon Saturday for the first weekend of February!

Here in NoVa, the snow is continuing to melt and we're preparing psychologically for our presidential primary, coming up in less than a month. Let the stupid and insulting ads begin!

Have a good day and come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

I really enjoyed seeing the Museum of Science and Industry and the proto-vegan cavepeople! Have a nice, rainy weekend!

Cavemen cartoons -- just another day in Southwest MO!

The comment about the arts being the first to cut out, although a joke, is a reality. My son was so fond of music and stage plays at the school, and it was cut from the program....he was devastated.

The third one could also be taken as how cavemen unfriend people!

I think these cavemen would be more qualified than some of the neanderthals running this time.

Love the first art critic. Excellent choices this week - as usual!
