Cartoon Saturday


We're just two days away from the end of July. Finally. Then we can see what fresh Hell August brings.

The Chief Executive of the Boy Scouts of America apologized for the bizarre and inappropriately political speech presented to the Scouts' annual Jamboree by Donald Trump; one person was killed and seven others seriously injured when a ride broke apart at the Ohio State Fair, throwing riders into the air; early Friday morning the GOP failed spectacularly to kill the Affordable Care Act; voice actress June Foray, who provided the voices for cartoon characters like Rocky the Flying Squirrel and his nemesis Natasha Fatale, died on Wednesday shortly before her 100th birthday; and White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci continued the administration's tradition of excellence in effective communication by launching profane tweets and phone calls to various individuals.

This week, in honor of really great walls, solar-powered and otherwise, and of really great falls, like the one of our national reputation, our collection of cartoons features Humpty Dumpty ...

Sometimes, Wednesday can be a really bad day ...


Listening to the deviled egg ... I get it!


Another egg-on-the-street interview ...


Always go to the specialist ... not the well-meaning friends ...


It's all in who's telling the story ...


If Humpty Dumpty had fallen today ...


Well, perhaps ...


I don't think this is accurate ... if he were from Ikea, he'd have had a name like "Humpar Dumsø
...


Or as Faux News would have reported the story ...


Be sure to read the fine print ...


And so it goes for another Cartoon Saturday! Go forth and egg on your friends.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts coming tomorrow, when Poetry Sunday returns. See you then.

We definitely needed a Cartoon Saturday after this past week!

Humpty Dumpty might be a metaphor for the Presidency. Or the health care plan.

We're screwed, and not in a good way.

"Go forth and egg on your friends."

When I first read that I thought you were encouraging us to throw eggs at our friends. I thought it was a fun idea.

The moral is to not rely on the king's horses or men. Or Chris Christie.
