Sunday Funnies

Where the Wild Things Are opened in theatres last week and several political cartoonists, both north and south of the border sought inspiration from it. In Canada, the balloon boy fallout translated nicely into the political games the Liberals were playing. The medical marijuana debate in the States inspired a couple of cartoonists. And, oddly enough, as Halloween approaches, several cartoonists used it as a backdrop for their economic portrayals...









Speaking of Halloween, my buds over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com are getting their ghoul-on this week. Drop by to see what the rest of the crew are doing each and every day leading up to the big night. Tell 'em Dufus sent ya.

I would love to be able to draw a cartoon and make the world "get it." I loved these. My captcha word is almost colon.(coloine) Goes right along with politics doesn't it?

ettarose: Great to see you out and about. Thanks for taking the time to visit. One of my favourite moments of the week is reviewing the week's editorial cartoons to see which make this post. Glad you enjoyed them.

My favorite has to be the putting of the financial section on the porch to scare people. I have to admit I love the costume one as well though :)

My confirm word, "wishmen". Yep, I certainly wish the men in government had a clue :D

Skye: Interesting how many cartoonists chose the economy to scare us. Does art imitate life?

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...
