The occupied bathroom stall and caught them playing airport security REALLY had me rolling this morning.

I liked those too Quirks, although I was sure you'd love the Mormons vs Morons one too. It was a busy week in the funny papers.
Linda Medrano said…
My favorite is the Mormons vs. the Morons! Love it!
nonamedufus said…
Of course that's not to say members of the Mormon group can't belong to the other one.

No mutual exclusivity implied.

The "Airport Security" one had me howling, too!

Dang, I forgot the 'great' debate was on last night. It probably made great entertainment.

So sad to hear the news of Rooney. He will be missed.

nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I thought the Airport Security was a hoot. I haven't watched the debates. But I've read some reports and of course followed the editorial cartoons.

Rooney had been on 60 minutes for ages. I saw a piece that said he at one point wrote for Harry Reasoner. Rooney couldn't understand why he was hired because Reasoner was a great writer in his own right.

You had three cartoons in a row that made me howl! I laughed so hard on Bush watching Perry, Mormons vs Morons and Who Wants Sausage! I have to go clean up the little puddle of pee on the floor now! Thanks!

I loved the sausage one and laughed out loud over the Bush/moron one. Sorry about your accident.

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…
