Cartoon Saturday


Ready to kick April to the curb? ... here are a few reasons why:

GOP presidential wannabe Ted Cruz has picked Carly Fiorina as his running mate; at least 24 people have been killed and dozens more injured in a car bombing in Baghdad; eleven people were killed in a helicopter crash in Norway; North Korea has sentenced a South Korean-born US citizen to ten years at hard labor for "espionage and subversion;" the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld a lower court's dismissal of a forcible oral sodomy charge against a suspect because state law does not include intoxication or unconsciousness among the five criteria describing the crime.

If all that didn't get you ready for a few much-needed laughs, you have a problem. This week, I'm featuring cartoons about blogging because, well, why not? ...

There's always the danger of over-sharing ...


I don't think most bloggers are dangerous. Opinionated and stubborn, yes ...


Good point! ...


Sometimes it can be lonely out in the blogosphere. It was months before I received my first comment ...


Some habits are hard to break ...


In case you wondered where the term "blog" came from ...


Some comments hurt more than others ...


Worthy of an Ig Nobel prize ...


The dog has it right ... 

As it happens, I blog from upstairs - not from the basement ...


And that's Cartoon Saturday for this last Saturday in April. Agnes and I are on the road in Lynchburg, Virginia, watching our granddaughter Leya take part in another local climbing competition, the next step on her way to the regional championships coming up in a few weeks. I'm sure there's a mountain goat somewhere back in the family tree, but it's not me.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts tomorrow, when we kick off May with Poetry Sunday. Be here.

It's funny how I started blogging with no expectations, but then after getting a few comments and a little following I felt disappointed if I didn't get a certain amount of hits or comments.

I'm kind of over that and back to writing to write --
but I still like the views, comments and shares!

Oversharing can lead to fewer comments.

Also the new blogger verification process can lead to fewer comments. What a pain!

The Oklahoma court case sounds crazy! What were they thinking?!

I heard that Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) has said that his $174,000 salary isn't enough to live decently in D.C., and the American people should know members of Congress are underpaid. I'm sure there are lot of people who'd gladly trade salaries and jobs. I nominate him for Ass Clown. I know there is stiff competition, but he certainly deserves it.

Great collection this week. I always look forward to Cartoon Saturday. Enjoy your retired weekend!
