Sunday Funnies

It's a wonderful time for political satirists and cartoonists! Quebec's giving Americans a run for their money this week, but I still have to say the first one is my favorite.
This is going to surprise you... two ways.

First, I like a Canadian cartoon, the Star Trek one..

...and I like a second one, the fatwa on maple syrup, too for a tie this week for my favorite cartoon. They both made LOL. :)

Thanks, John, for the laughs and see you later on the gridiron. :)

Canada's stance on Iran is confusing - but that is for the Iranian People to Decide.

Clinton's speech was huge in many ways - I liked watching him.
One point he said:"when asked the Republicans about which loop holes in the tax code they will plug, they say, 'see me after the election'

The camera cuts to some people who are visibly "shocked" !

Come on, are you living under a rock or doing this to get on TV ?

Quebec - Oh boy ! Here we go again !

Pinocchio - My favourite.

I liked that first one too, Paula. And yes, the Quebec election provided plenty of fodder for Canadian cartoonists this week.

Hey Dufus! A nice cross-section here, I salute your partisan spread. Still, the ones about the GOP made me laugh, especially The Good, The Bad and The Ugly! Indigo
nonamedufus said…
I knew I'd finally get you. I think I may have acclimatized you to Canadian issues. Now all you have to do is move here.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, Jaffer, I think Clinton faired much better than Clint and his empty chair.
nonamedufus said…
A provincial election in Canada and 2 political conventions in the States made for some pretty great material for editorial cartoonists on both sides of the border, Indigo.

totally, hilarious!!
nonamedufus said…
It was an excellent week, Meleah.
Lauren said…
Yep, that accurately sums things up. LOL! Funny stuff.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, it was a pretty whacky week, Lauren
Nicky said…
I love the woman choosing Michelle or Ann instead. Nice way to recap the week, Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Nicky. Nice to see you talking to me again.
Nicky said…
I never stopped talking to you, silly man! It's just that you couldn't hear me over all the noise at the airport... oh, wait, never mind.

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.
