Sunday Funnies

It was quite the week on the geopolitical front last week with Iranian President Iamanutjob speaking at the United Nations. Boy he sure stirred things up and many nations walked out on his speech in boycott. President Obama addressed the international forum too but not before a blitz of the media capital of New York in an effort to preach the good word about his health care reforms. In a somewhat muted development Diebold announced they were getting out of the vote counting business. And the editorial cartoonists, bless their hearts, caught it all...

that nutjob is a psycho! I couldn't believe his "speech" and how long they let him rant like that. I love the first pic.

I am so so sick of seeing Obama! The cartoonists have it right!

Obama the krill and media the mighty sponge. What a great natural combo.

"Iranian President Iamanutjob"

HA! You pegged that one perfectly!

LMBO! You even got the right rhythm!

That was perfect Noname! Just perfect!

AND...I'm stumbling you. (I always forget to do that! But you are more than worthy of stumbling!)

dizzblnd: Isn't it interesting how political cartoons inspire passionate comments? Sick of seeing Obama? Is there any show he didn't do last week? Lost!

Don: Man, Don, you never cease to amaze me. That was a mighty obscure analogy. I had to look up "krill" to realize you were making a Red Lobster reference. LOL

Quirks: Thanks for the st-st-stumble

Great cartoons this week... of course, they had some great material to work with!

CL: Yep sometimes the subjects are as funny as the satire!
Man, I wish I could draw. There's some much to work with for political cartoonists.

Loved the "President Iamanutjob" thing. Awesome.

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.
