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!

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?!

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

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.
