Cartoon Saturday


May is almost over ... and it's about time.

A study of America's crumbling infrastructure shows that more than 60, 000 bridges across the country are in desperate need of repair; presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump finally found a new ethnic group to insult, referring to Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocohontas;" South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley signed a bill into law that makes it illegal for a woman to obtain an abortion after her pregnancy reaches 20 weeks, unless the mother's life is in jeopardy, but without exceptions for rape or incest; according to the chief of the Transportation Safety Administration, long lines at airport security checkpoints will continue through the busy summer travel season; and in a complication to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, the State Department Inspector General issued a detailed report criticizing Secretary Clinton's use of a private e-mail server for the conduct of sensitive government affairs.

This week there's no particular theme ... just a collection of good cartoons that caught my eye ...

This one reminds me of the old joke about the whiskey called "Old Card Table" - one shot and your legs fold up under you ...


No shortage there! ...


Speaking as an old guy who always needs to know where the nearest rest room is, I'm worried about this development ...


Good advice ...


21st century hunting dog ...


Must be one of those artisanal varieties ...


As fantasies go, this one is pretty safe ... and equally likely to be proven true  ...


Don't you love the folks who make sure the world knows how many pounds they bench-pressed today? ...


Now, there's my kind of luddite ...


Sad, but true ...


And there you have it - the last Cartoon Saturday for May, 2016. Agnes and I are in Pittsburgh this weekend for the high school graduation of our niece, Elena, and a family reunion cum graduation party. There's nothing like getting the family together at the old home town!

Have a good day and a great weekend. See you tomorrow for Poetry Sunday.
