    Not one of Bok's better efforts. Even the artwork is shoddy-- the lighter in his hand looks like a candle.

    Smoke on the water!
    And fire in the sky!

  • ||

    Dude, that's Deep Purple. Nothing at all like Lynyrd Skynyrd.

  • ||

    I believe it's more suitable than Freebird.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    My browser is not showing me the picture. Someone describe it to me so I can come up with a joke ridiculing Bok's effort.

    Scientist-looking guy in white lab coat. Where there are usually buttons, his coat says "CLIMATE SCIENCE". He's holding a burning lighter next to the bulb of a thermometer.

    No mention of whether he's paid the carbon tax on the butane.

    Where is Obama standing, and how racially stereotypical did he draw him?

    As a side note, they claim that when you lose your sight, your other senses heighten to compensate. But to me this Friday Funny doesn't smell any different than any of the others.

  • Piltdown Man||

    Obama is pictured,barefoot in overalls, with a live chicken under each arm and eating a slice of watermelon as he is running away from an angry farmer.

  • Piltdown Man||

    The word "taxes" is written on the chickens.Obama's mouth is drawn freakishly large and grinning with exaggerated lips and big white teeth.

  • Silentz||

    PM, you should really start submitting comics for the Friday Funnies.
    Er...I mean...RACIST!

  • ed||

    It's a white box. The ice age has arrived!

  • Suki||

    I LOLed.

    Would have been better with a zippo.

  • ||

    I give it a gentlemans B.

    Hi Suki!

  • Suki||

    Hi domo!

    I have a bleg, but not for money. John's stalker came back and we need some assistance. Go here and click through to AtSite.

    In good news, my first story will come back from John and Sarah's editing butchery any day now and be published real soon.

  • Suki||

    Looks like someone's boss saw it. Thanks everybody :)

  • ||

    My reaction runs the entire gambit from "meh" to [shrug].

  • ||

    I get the Ice Age whiteout version.

    I consider myself lucky.

  • ||

    I want to see a cartoon of a polar bear sitting in the Oval Office picking his teeth and rubbing his bulging belly.

    Maybe with some Presidential artifacts strewn about.

    Okay, Chip?

    Chop, chop!

  • ||

    The poor polar bear would probably choke to death on Obama's Nobel bling.

  • ||

    Well, it's posted on a Friday, so I guess the title is about 50% correct.

  • The Gobbler||

    Why can't I see the funny this week? Always could before.

  • steve||

    I can see it in firefox, but not on IE. I think it is rather funny myself.

  • ||

    I don't get it. A large plain white background with a tiny, framed red X in the upper left corner. The artwork is better than usual for Bok, but it isn't humorous at all. Am I missing something?

  • Bouncer||

    Whered the picture go?

  • bubba||

    I can has red x?

  • ||

    The AGW conspiracy must be trying to suppress all criticism. Even in lame cartoon form.

  • Dello||

    If I'm not mistaken, this cartoon made it into "The Week" magazine.

  • ||

    I dunno, I don't usually laugh at the political cartoons, but i actually chuckled a little at this one. I think it was the simplicity compared to how many implications usually shoved into these things.

  • Lord Jubjub||

    Strange, I can't see it in Firefox.

  • ||

    But doesn't climate refer to longer periods of time rather than a simple moment in time (which would be weather)? I doubt the scientist has enough fuel in the lighter to gather enough data for a reliable study.

    Also, this comic may not be racist per se, but it's bigoted against mustachoied scientists.

  • ||

    I was sure I left a comment before.

    Best Bok Ever

    Spot effing On
    Poor artwork
    Grade: B+

  • Mike M.||

    The next cartoon should be about the environmentally friendly high-efficiency traffic lights in Wisconsin that cause traffic accidents because they don't give off enough heat to melt the snow and ice covering them.

  • ||

    Are traffic lights in Wisconsin supposed to be that warm?

  • wingnutx||

    This is better than usual.

  • Paul||

    No picture here, either. Oh I get it now. There's "nothing there"...

  • Paul||

    How postmodern.

  • ||

    still better than the hack politico uses

  • ||

    Er, I once worked at a newspaper where that happened. A lighter carefully held under a thermometer raised the temperature by fifteen degrees on a winter's day. It was duly reported without comment as being one of the warmest days ever in December.

  • Pope Albert||

    Heretic! Outlier! BURN him, my minions!

  • Chad||

    Yes, Master.

    My only point is that if you take the Bible straight, as I'm sure many of Reasons readers do, you will see a lot of the Old Testament stuff as absolutely insane. Even some cursory knowledge of Hebrew and doing some mathematics and logic will tell you that you really won't get the full deal by just doing regular skill english reading for those books. In other words, there's more to the books of the Bible than most will ever grasp. I'm not concerned that Mr. Crumb will go to hell or anything crazy like that! It's just that he, like many types of religionists, seems to take it literally, take it straight...the Bible's books were not written by straight laced divinity students in 3 piece suits who white wash religious beliefs as if God made them with clothes on...the Bible's books were written by people with very different mindsets
