I love the in the middle with the mine shaft passing Glenn Beck. Is that a Dan Murphy? Sadly, the reference to Carol James is not far off either. - G

Georgina: Yeah this is from a Canadian cartoonist and you would know about the NDP provincial leader, coming from BC. I liked the reference to Hockey Night In Canada co-host Don Cherry's wardrobe.

I loved them! Wanted to stop by to say hello since we hang out in the same bloggerhoods. There's nothing like the visual impact of an excellent cartoon.

Heh, heh. The UN 'toon reminded me of the one that appeared just after Kim Campbell became PM: Her party only held two seats in the House which were depicted by "His" and "Hers" outhouses on Parliament Hill.

All were good, albeit I don't have the Canadian perspective on the Canadian cartoons, but the one that really got me:

Dos Cervezas Por Favor!

Lauren: I'm glad you stopped in. I love what editorial cartoonists do. I carry the best I come across every Sunday.

Quirks: I thought that was hilarious. I'be been to Costa Rica and Panama and that phrase always came in handy.

00dozo:Ha, ha...that's a good one. Wish I'd seen it. I do have a couple of collections from the 80s - one by Roy Peterson and another by Aislin. I interviewed them when I was a political reporter. They're both hilarious.

dufus: I think it appeared in the Toronto Star or the Globe & Mail - I don't really recall.

A political reporter interviewing political cartoonists?? Ha! There's a couple of walls upon which I would've liked to have been the proverbial fly! And it's no wonder you're so punny.

00dozo: If only I could draw. I really envy those guys.
Leeuna said…
Great cartoons, Dufe. I especially liked the last one. It kinda says it all. :)
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna:It summed that issue up nicely didn't it.
Nicky said…
Yup, my favourite is the last one. I had a devil of a time choosing a favourite though. They're all pretty funny.
nonamedufus said…
Nicky: Yeah, that last one is spot on.

Paladino makes it embarrassing to be from New York! At least I can vote against him!

Now, please pass the Dos Equis!

Boom Boom: (Hey did you change your name?) I'm really, really tired of all the American political attack ads on TV. But your elections are soon, aren't they. Then we can go back to those drug ads that spend half their time telling you of their adverse side effects. Geez, that sounds eerily similar to those attack ads!
I've missed the Sunday Funnies for the last couple of weeks and now just catching up. Looks like a good batch, especially as everyone says the last one. Spot on.

UR: Good to see you up and around. How's that man-cold?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
