Cartoon Saturday


Oy. Just, oy.

President-elect Donald Trump nominated Rex Tillerson, the CEO of the ExxonMobil Corporation - a man with no diplomatic experience and with extensive business ties to Russia - to be his Secretary of State; President-elect Trump also slapped down the 17-member US Intelligence Community, stating that he doesn't need daily intelligence briefings because "I'm, like, a smart person;" Federal charges will be filed against a North Carolina man who attacked a family pizza restaurant in Washington on December 4th, inspired by bizarre online conspiracy theories that it was a front for a child sex ring; China has stolen an American underwater drone while it was being recovered by a US Navy oceanographic research vessel; and a heartwarming story about a young boy who died in Santa's arms unraveled when it could not be verified as true.

We're just over a week away from Christmas, and all that "peace on earth, goodwill toward men" stuff seems to be lacking, so we may as well have some Christmas-themed cartoons ...

I wonder if Mr Trump knows about this ...


Busted!


This kid is growing up to be either a lawyer or a politician. Or, as things now are, both ...


Right next to the Stupid Pun section ...


Nice try, but ...


The Patriot Act says it's okay ...


Yee, HAH!!


I think it's a win-win: Santa gives appropriate gifts and Mr Trump makes good on his pledge to bring all the coal jobs back ...


Sometimes, it takes a while for the jury to come in ...


How the "alternative media" would report on Santa's hiring practices ...


And there you have it - yet another collection of cartoons appropriate to the season. Cartoon Saturday will not appear next week because it will be Christmas Eve, and I have a special post scheduled for that day, so get your fix now.

It's a cold and icy morning here in NoVa ... outside my study window, the world is covered with a beautifully treacherous layer of sparkling ice - perfect for staying inside and sacrificing goats to the warm weather gods.

Don't forget to cast your votes for Ass Clown of the Year - only two weeks to go until the voting window closes at 11:59 PM on December 31st. So far, The American Electorate is running away with the competition, with president-elect Donald Trump running a strong second and the Gatlinburg Arsonists and the GOP tied for third. Don't miss out - let your voice be heard! Vote now!

Have a good day, stay warm, and come back tomorrow for the last Poetry Sunday of 2016. More thoughts then.

I had to think about 'topless Dancer' for a second because I was thinking about a topless dancer.

10 votes for the president elect, 5 for thinking he's so smart and 5 for his anti-government picks.
