    Baby = Friday Funnies.
    TSA = H&R readers.

    G'mornin, Suki! Are you okay?

  • Almanian||

    Now ^^THIS^^ is funny! G'morning, anarch!

  • epson||

    No doubt it is funny but with very useful fact.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    What Payne doesn't show you is Old Man 2010 getting off his plane, realizing he had his handgun with him the whole flight.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    It was in his purse. Because 2010 was gay.

  • Fiscal Meth||

    Is the military aware that 2010 kept his handgun after they kicked him out?

  • Kevin Breen||


    This cartoon seriously made me chuckle as so few political cartoons do.

  • ||

    Shouldn't he have his hand jammed down the back of that diaper?

  • Yup||

    If he stuck his hands down the front he would confiscate the nuts.

  • Bucky||

    don't have kids?

  • Fiscal Meth||

    It's not considered pedaphilia if they use the back of their hand.

  • Bucky||

    my father used the back and i considered it abuse...

  • JOhnny MAckson||

    Can't. Stop. LOLing.


  • ||

    Neither can all that people that saw you show up at the methadone clinic with a pasty on your pecker. Spammer.

  • JOhnny MAckson||

    Oh WOW! I mean really, dude! LOL

    Is this the first time that a spambot has replied to a comment?!

    The singularity is nigh!

  • Hey JO MA||

    Can I get your email, I really want to find out more about that p4u

  • ||


    But 35N4P2BYY is correct the frequency is increasing. and i just did some calculations that a server farm recently built in my home town can process as much information as a human brain. In 18 month a facility half the size of the one just built will be able to do the same number of processes and a facility the same size will be two human brains...

    then another 18 month 4 brains then 8 then 16 then 32...

    The singularity is nigh!

    Is this the first time that a spambot has replied to a comment?!

    I want to say... yes..

  • Rather||

    No, he's replied to me twice

  • Rather||

    Good morning. Did anyone put out an Amber alert for Suki?

  • Sam anarch Walmart||

    Privatize it: Code Adam.

  • Rather||


    Oh forgot to blogwhore. I'll send rescue for Suki later

  • Mike in PA||

    Hey Friday Funnies are back!

    (oh, i guess not)

  • Jen||

    Actually, I thought this one was mildly funny.

  • Almanian||

    Well, I see by the rousing response that everyone's REALLY GLAD the Friday "Funnies" have, once again, been resurrected from the grave. Thanks, Reason!

    PS Is Payne not aware that there's a Mosque of Death being built by the children of Nine Eleven Survivors™ at the behest of either George Soros or the Koch Brothers in league with the Bilderbergs, the Saudi Royal Family, the ghost of Princess Died, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to celebrate Brasil and Teh Rooskies getting the World Cup of Babies' Blood?

    Cause I'm pretty sure that's more topical, and probably would lead to a funnier Friday "Funny" than ANOTHER TSA article. Just sayin'...

  • sarcasmic||

    Didn't they stop using wands?

    My understanding is that if the metal detector goes "beep" they subject the person to an intrusive pat down in order to find non-metallic explosives, as opposed to using the wand to find what set off the metal detector.

    I just confused myself. If the metal detector goes off then they search for non-metallic... detecting metal is cue to look for something that is not metal... wtf?

    I think the bigger problem is that the baby had car/house keys that had to be put in one of the smaller bins. Who is letting a baby drive??? There should be a law against that!

  • Fatty Bolger||

    Not keys. That's a monocle to go along with the top hat next to it. Payne gets us.

  • Ben Dover||

    I feel safer.

  • safer||

    Touch my junk and I'll have you arrested.

  • Derp||

    I don't get the joke?
    I mean, TSA is bad, etc... Is there anything else?

  • anarch's Spark Notes||

    2011 will bring to pass many, many occurrences - in fact, it will bring to pass every single event that will take place in the entire world over the course of a whole year. Clearly, not all these events pose threats that warrant invasive searches of the type the TSA has been imposing and promises to continue systematically imposing. But the cartoon shows the whole year - ie, every event in the world - so invaded. Add to that grotesque extremism the patent innocence and vulnerability of an infant, and you portray the absurd brutality of the practice.

    I'm good at explaining jokes. I find I have to do it a lot.

  • Rather||

    Good. Can you explain FINNEGAN’S WAKE then?

  • ||

    explain FINNEGAN’S WAKE

    The Irish drink to excess - much hilarity ensues from this fact.

    The End

  • GroundTruth||

    Still chuckling... I think this one is going on my office door.

  • Fiscal Meth||

    What does the tophat represent?

  • Paul||

    That Baby New Year is a libertarian.

  • Paul||

    I mean, didn't you see the tiny monacle in the tray?

  • ||

    Friday funnies, the rumors of your death have been exaggerated!!!

  • Rather||

    Zombie Friday Funnies?

Have you made the decision on the formal affair? Then by all means, go all out and put on a light attire covered in silk and lace. what ever kind of celebration your wedding party will be, your attire will perform among the most significant roles in it!With the cost of weddings, some couples attempt and minimize back again by creating their personal flowers, or purchase some wedding dress in a specialized dress shop at a high price, but why don't you try to buy a cheap wedding dresse online directly.

And unless it is really unavoidable, don't allow your potential husband see your attire whatsoever prior to the wedding. They say it's poor luck as well as if that's merely a superstition, it definitely does spoil his surprise!
