And here I thought that *was* the Conservative Party's official name already!
Those last two again are just sad. Sometimes your comics make me want to cry. :(

Well, we all may have called them that but now it's official!

That's the thing about editorial cartoons. They may not always be funny but they're usually thought-proviking. That last one in particular really got to me.

By the way, U.P., thanks for sharing this post on Facebook every week. It's greatly appreciated.
That last one. Oh wow. Yeah.

No problem on sharing the posts. I share both on my page and on my profile, because I have friends that enjoy your choice of cartoons for the week who aren't fans of my page. I hope, though, it's not overkill for those who are both friends of mine and fans of my page. So far, though, no one has complained...which why would they? The cartoons are usually funny (or thought provoking) and are a great way to start a Sunday morning.

When it comes to promoting blog content there's no kill like overkill. Thanks again U.P. You're one of the good guys.

Oh! The last one. Oh. A heart tugger. And the 9/11 one. Eeek. But like you said... thought provoking.

Very much so. *smile*

AND... Royal Pain In The Ass?

HA!

You sure they weren't talking U.S. politics?

Cuz it's a moniker that fits this nation too.

heh heh

Costa Rica is looking better and better all the time.

So the PCs (the "Penis Craniums", as I like to call them) are now the CPC? (And you can fill in any choice words you'd like for that acronym.)

;-)

Ha! I love that Bachmann/Elvis one. She's gotta be related to Palin somehow.

We had a comedy troupe here in Canada that started out on radio and shifted to TV called the Royal Canadian Air Farce. They were funny as hell. Costa Rica. We went about 5 years ago. Loved it

Call a spade a spade. They're DHs. Dick Heads.

totally-super-hilarious.

I feel a little bit like crying now.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks Meleah. At least I can be super hilarious once a week. Even though it is with other people's stuff.
nonamedufus said…
Ziva, you really have to get your emotions in check. You're a mess this week.
Linda Medrano said…
The last two are chilling. The others are hysterical.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, that was kinda my take, too. I think that last one shows considerable creativity.

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
