Cartoon Saturday


It's hard to believe, but we're almost done with this stupid year.

Brawls, mostly fueled by teenagers, broke out at shopping malls across the United States on the day after Christmas; 64 singers from the Russian army's Alexandrov Ensemble were among those killed when their aircraft crashed into the Black Sea on Christmas Day; continuing his tradition of replacing statesmanship with Twitter, President-elect Donald Trump described the United Nations as "just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time;" actress Carrie Fisher, famous for her portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, died two days after Christmas at the age of 60, and her mother, famed actress Debbie Reynolds, died the following day.

Here we go with the last collection of cartoons for 2016 ...

After a certain age, your holiday expectations moderate a bit ...


It'll be a lot thicker after January 20th ...


This is how I see most of those TV ads for DNA testing ...


Give your customers what they want ...


We must have had a lot of those back in November ...


Cows are pretty adaptable ...


Good news, bad news ...


I don't make New Year's resolutions. These, either ...


You knew this one was coming ...


Think about it ...


And so concludes your last Cartoon Saturday for 2016. After a year of celebrity deaths, electoral disappointments, decreasing civility, and all-around yuckiness, you need a bit of humor to help you square your shoulders and turn resolutely toward 2017 and beyond. I'm here to help.

Tomorrow is January 1st - New Year's Day - and we'll be announcing the Ass Clown of the Year for 2016. You still have until 11:59 PM tonight to cast your votes ... you can vote in your comments on this post, by e-mailing me, or sending me a PM on Facebook if we're friended there. If you need a recap of the rules, go here. So far, The American Electorate has a comfortable lead, with Donald Trump in a strong second place; others who have accumulated votes are, in no particular order:

The GOP;
The Democratic Party;
Fake News Authors;
The Gatlinburg Arsonists;
The Media;
Trump Administration Appointees (in general);
Kellyanne Conway;
Vladimir Putin;
Hillary Clinton;
Ryan Lochte; and,
The 24-Hour News Cycle.

You still have time to make your voice heard! Vote now, vote later, vote often!

If you are going to celebrate tonight, please don't drink and drive. I need to keep all of you around at least until I've met you all in person. Party hearty, be safe, and come back tomorrow for the announcement of the 2016 Ass Clown of the Year!

More thoughts then.

1May the ass clowns be manageable in 2017.

Harry Reid did not make the list. I vote for Jon Stewart.

10 more for Trump. The American Electorate is responsible for falling for him,
but I don't want blame the victim.

Great cartoons!
