Sunday Funnies

It was the biggest news story of the week, last week, creating international headlines. Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel prize for peace. Opinion was divided. As were the political cartoonists...





Canada's Prime Minister created headlines last week, too. A public opinion poll showed Stephen Harper's Conservatives would form a majority government if an election were called. Michael Ignatieff''s Liberals are sinking into a deep dark hole according to the poll as the Grits continued their infighting and chasing their own tails. Harper's so relaxed he put in a surprise appearance with Yo Yo Ma and the National Arts Centre Symphony Orchestra... and of course political cartoonists just ate it up...

Every one of the editorial cartoons about Obama's "prize" is spot on! What a farce!
Face it, if Al Gore won it, it has to be meaningless.

Ha! Great Sunday funnies Noname. The Obama-worship has gone way overboard!

Don: I think the overall reaction was largely bewilderment.

Quirks: The Grit(ish) are no where near coming. They're tripping over their own shoe laces, believe me. If they can't run their own party they'll never run the country.

surveygirl: That's a Canadian cartoonist in the Globe and Mail. I liked that one too.

Damn, I was hoping that Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize would go unnoticed. Bleh!

Ha! Some good cartoons for sure. The piano one especially :-)

RG: Not a bad collection, eh?
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: It seems to have generated a wee bit of attention.

Dot-Com: Yeah, those editorial cartoonists are right in tune!

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
