Cartoon Saturday


Spring is here and the craziness goes on ...

The so-called "Islamic State" has claimed responsibility for deadly bomb attacks against the airport and a metro station in Brussels, Belgium, that killed more than 30 people and injured hundreds more; A patient is suing Yale New Haven Hospital for allegedly removing part of the wrong rib during surgery and then trying to cover up the mistake; the National Rifle Association's Family Website has introduced a series of re-written fairy tales in which characters such as Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood pack heat to protect themselves from danger; the indictment of another 48 bikers on various charges of criminal activity bring to more than 150 the number of people indicted as a result of the deadly pitched battle between rival gangs and police in Waco, Texas; last year; and in Florida, researchers are equipping captured Burmese pythons with radio transmitters in an attempt to locate and remove the vast number of the huge snakes that have devastated wildlife in the Everglades.

Agnes and I enjoy cooking, but we also enjoy going out to eat occasionally, and letting someone else do the work. For this edition of Cartoon Saturday, let's look at a selection of cartoons on the topic of dining out ...

My daughter has been on my case about my weight lately, and so I think she'd approve of a place like this ...


I suppose it would be sustainable, but not particularly filling ...


Be careful what seafood you order ...


I think I've eaten here ...


Perhaps he should have shopped at Victor's Secret ...


I know exactly how those pairings work ...


Sadly, we're getting there ...


I think I've eaten here, too ...


I'm surprised this isn't how the restaurant at the Ikea store works ...


First world dining problems ...


And that's it for our final March edition of Cartoon Saturday ... I hope you enjoyed it and are inspired to patronize a local restaurant.

It looks as if it's going to be a beautiful Easter weekend here in NoVa. The cherry blossoms have peaked in DC, the weather is supposed to be very pleasant ... good news for all the families who have planned Easter egg hunts tomorrow. I need to do some yard work this morning, and later Agnes and I have to go out and lay in supplies for granddaughter Elise's birthday party tomorrow. No rest for the weary.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts coming tomorrow on Poetry Sunday. Be here.

I believe I have been to many of those establishments, as well.
Have a great weekend.

Bilbo for President!

Common steak? I've been there when the stakes were high! Have a gourmet weekend!

I must say that it's been a while since I've gone to a restaurant where you dress up to go.

I always eat the common steak

Never order flying fish rare!

Great collection! I wish there were more Gun Free Zones. Doesn't Congress and The Supreme Court have them?

I would eat in a gun-free restaurant.
