Sunday Funnies

What were political cartoonists up to last week?

Well, Thanksgiving came and went south of the border last week. All of a sudden Christmas is now right around the corner. Glenn Beck's making headlines. Some wonder why. And Oprah announced she'll soon be ending in her talk show.

In Canada, the former Liberal leader's wife took aim at Michael Ignatieff, the current Liberal leader, in a rant on Facebook. It was the latest in a series of gaffes experienced by the opposition Liberals. A top diplomat blew the whistle on alleged knowledge by Canadian soldiers that Taliban prisoners were being tortured after they were handed over to the Afghans. The allegations come on the eve of Stephen Harper's visit to China, where he was expected to raise China's human rights record. Oh, yeah. Seems we have something called the Grey Cup this weekend between the Montreal Alouettes and the Saskatchewan Rough Riders.

Why is Sunday so much funnier than other days? I bet that's why they sell more papers on Sunday.

Hee-hee! (No reference to Michael Jackson) These are all great, especially Glenn Beck.

Cat Lady: Remember the Sunday funnies? That's when newspapers used to run the coloured comics. That's what I do with political cartoons. I review a collection from the past week and pick the one's I like the best to share. Glad you enjoy 'em.

Me-Me: Yeah, you don't have to say much about that one. It kinda speaks for itself. Ha, ha.

I have missed you more than most. I love the Sunday cartoons you post. They are so funny. I do not read an actual paper so it is nice to see what has been done.

So that is the great catastrophe of 2012? Oprah?

I should've known. (I know she's quitting before that.)

I guess we'll all be drinking special kool-aid or Jesus juice because we all miss Oprah and can no longer live our lives without her t.v. show.

Ha!

Now I believe all the fuss about 2012.

ettarose: Hey, ettarose, I'm happy you could drop by. Always good to see you. Glad you enjoyed the funnies. It was a good week.

Quirks: You know people seem to forget that while she may be dropping her little talk show she's creating a humungous cable network. All Oprah, all the time. That's reason enough for the Jesus juice! Oy.

Sounds like you guys have as much fun and sources of chatter with your politicians as we do. Sometimes it's just plain scary how so many idiots have reached such high offices. Morons!
nonamedufus said…
DON: I'm convinced these guys get into politics because they can't do anything else. Trouble is we keep voting for them. So I wonder who're the morons?!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
