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?!

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

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.
