Sunday Funnies

It was a busy, busy week in political cartoon land last week. President Obama visited Japan and China where his bowing to the Japanese Emperor was seen as offensive by some back home. In Canada, a portly Member of Parliament took offense when another Member Twittered about his girth in a Parliamentary Committee.

Elsewhere, allegations were made that Canadian soldiers knew Taliban prisoners would be tortured when they handed them over to Afghan authorities. Sarah Palin's much anticipated book came out last week. And believe it or not, Bert and Ernie and all their Sesame Street buddies hit a significant milestone.

So where are the "girth" twitters? I'm anxious to read them!

Ha!

Great funnies as usual. I especially like the one of Obama bowing to Burger King.

Yeesh.

Quirks: One MP wants to ban twittering fro Parliament because it shows "the banality of this place." He seems to have forgotten the televised daily Question period where members' stupidity is on display for all to see.

Me-Me: #s 4&5 are Canadian. The rest are by American political cartoonists. I'm an equal opportunity political cartoon displayer.

Those Barack O'Boy cartoons are so true. What a milquetoast and moron. His wife actually gave PM Brown tapes of Barack O'Boy's speeches. How damned egotistical! Both of them.

Don: I hear he bowed because his teleprompter was tipped over and he had to bend over to read it.

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...
