Cartoon Saturday


As the old movie title would tell us, it's a mad, mad, mad, mad world ...

Senator Ted Cruz was booed off the stage at the Republican National Convention for refusing to endorse Donald Trump for president; a British nuclear submarine was damaged in a "glancing collision" with a merchant vessel; nine people were murdered in a suspected terror attack at a shopping center in Munich, Germany; religious authorities in Saudi Arabia have issued a fatwa (religious decree) against Pokemon Go, declaring that the popular game is "un-Islamic" ... the Saudi government has denied that a fatwa has been issued, although a general anti-Pokemon fatwa (#21758) was issued 15 years ago, and still appears on the list of fatwas at the clerical website; and Russian athletes may be banned altogether from the Rio Olympics next month as a result of a huge doping scandal.

We need something to take our minds off the misery, so this week, let's get with some physical activity and check out a collection of cartoons related to sports of all kinds ...

The rules keep evolving ...


Designated gondoleer ...


Signals need to be clear and unambiguous to be useful ...


They also need to cover all the important messages that might be sent ...


It's probably time to update the old songs ...


How to get the fighter really angry ...


Galley slaves, 2016 ...


Yes, that would be me ...


Well, yes ... yes he does ...


Baseball is a game of statistics, some more useful than others ...


And it's the weekend. At least here in NoVa, it's much too hot to play baseball, or pretty much anything else, outside, so it's a good day to catch up on housecleaning, binge-watch your favorite show, or whatever.

Have a good day and a great weekend, drink lots of water, stay cool, and come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday.

More thoughts then.

A fatwa against Pokemon Go? Talk about overkill!

The sight of a boxer twerking would not be a pretty sight.

I like the revision of the old baseball song.

Another collection of fine cartoons!
Hot and humid in the Windy City today but I'm certain I'll enjoy it anyway.

So that's where minor leaguers go after they're released.

That's where my athletic prime went, with the recession.

Running every day is too much religion for me!

I remember the galley slave Fitbit - very funny. But the athletic prime sign made me really laugh.

Bilbo, thanks!
