Cartoon Saturday


And May grinds on ...

A Secret Service agent shot and wounded a man with a gun who was approaching the White House and refused orders to stop and put down the weapon; an Egypt Air flight from Paris to Cairo with 66 persons on board apparently crashed in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and the cause is not yet known; Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma has vetoed a bill that would have made performance of an abortion in the state a felony; the mayor of San Francisco has fired the city's chief of police after a police officer shot a woman who was fleeing from a stolen car; and the government of Mexico has agreed to extradite drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to the US to face charges including drug smuggling and murder.

It's important for us to find something to laugh at with all the bad news around us, and so it's time to break out a new collection of cartoons - this week featuring takes on letters, numbers, and symbols ...

I thought I was done with all that when I decided to major in Linguistics rather than something requiring a lot of higher mathematics ...


You just can't trust some letters ...


Oh, oh ...


Cursives! Foiled again ...


Oddly enough ...


Good move ...


Sometimes, counseling just won't work ...


Well, it's said that opposites attract ...


What future archaeologists may theorize ...


Somebody needs to find a new line of work ...


And that's it for this edition of Cartoon Saturday. It's a cold, miserable day here in NoVa after a beautiful day yesterday ... I think Mother Nature has it in for us. Oh, well ... at least it will give me a chance to try to find places for all the stuff that used to be in our rented storage unit and is now in my garage. Oy.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts tomorrow.

Your choices prove that even letters and symbols can be funny! Great ones all. It could be worse - El Chapo could escape again.
