Cartoon Saturday


And you thought things in this country couldn't get any crazier. Silly you.

In the latest instance of people killing people rather than guns killing people, three persons were murdered and 14 others hurt in a shooting spree at a workplace in Hesston, Kansas; South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said this past week that the GOP has gone "batshit crazy," and joked that it would be possible to get away with murdering Ted Cruz if it happened in the Senate; Apple and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continued their battle over the FBI's demand that Apple write software to allow them to unlock an iPhone belonging to a terror suspect*; a man in Kentucky is recovering from severe burns he suffered when his e-cigarette apparently exploded in his pocket**; and the Iowa state legislature has approved a new law which allows children of any age to use a handgun with adult supervision.

As we limp, awash in political buffoonery, into the last weekend of this election-year February, we can probably all use some good cartoons. Considering the horrifying spectre of a Donald Trump or Ted Cruz presidency, here are is a selection of cartoons about life in Hell ...

I've often thought there was a special place for these people ...


Hell, 21st century ...


Wish you were here (instead of me) ...


The snack bar in Hell ...


Another good source of management interns would be the IRS ...


Well, what else would it have been? ...


Oh, how some of us can relate ...


I think this would probably be my sentence ...


And no handguns, either ...


Finally, you had to see this one coming ...


And that's it, Dear Readers, for our last Cartoon Saturday for the month. I hope you enjoyed it.

It looks as if, after a few days of heavy storms and rain, we're in for a fairly nice weekend weather-wise. On today's agenda is doing some wall-patching and painting in Agnes's sewing room and finalizing all the data we still owe our tax preparer***, and tomorrow we'll be going to Sunday brunch with the local grandchildren. It all looks promising.

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

* Oh, and by the way, it could also be used to unlock any other phone using the same software, including yours and mine. Just sayin' ...

** Yes, smoking is dangerous to your health, no matter how you do it.

*** Speaking of Hell.

My neighborhood had a real flap through email about a geezer who wouldn't pick up after his two labs after they left huge deposits. And I'm afraid that The Donald will take up to new depths.

One helluva Cartoon Saturday, Bilbo!

In my adventure into politics one of my situations to handle was about dog poop.

Can you use a bulldozer to pick up dog poop? Great takes on Hell!
