Sunday Funnies


The Sweater Vest of Righteousness gets my top billing for the week, I must admit that I LOL'd at that one.

Heh heh. I laughed and feared all at the same time! Especially regarding the sweater vest (definitely lols) then the fear clutched at my heart at the budget pie...gulp.

Too bad MY natural gas can't be utilized. We'd be in real good shape. HA!

Ha! I guess Santorum believes the sweater vest will turn him into a "mentalist" that will allow him to hypnotize the public into voting for him, regardless of his policies. Yeah, Rick. Good luck with that.

You know I used to shake my head at the things American politicians did but in recent weeks with the story about the automated calls to voters by government members during the last election to supporters of other parties telling them the polling station had moved (it hadn't) I'm really shaking my head. I can't help but include a couple of cartoons about that.

Your natural gas? Is that an editorial comment on the Republican candidates, Quirks?

Is it just me or are all the Republican candidates refugees from Barnum and Bailey?

I was torn about the "Monkees"/Davy Jones 'toon. Funny, but sad. The first one though, the USPS cartoon was spot on. I hope they finally go under... Finally!

I liked that one too, Don. Like it makes so much sense to cut back on delivery. or does it? What with social media these days snail mail is almost irrelevant.

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…
