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?

Twittercide is Painless

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
