    Before the whole thing (I won't dignify it by calling it a comic) came up, I thought it might actually be a good one.

    I thought it would be a Humpty-Dumpty reference about not being able to put it together again.

    It cannot be denied that Fascism and similar movements aimed at the establishment of dictatorships are full of the best intentions and that their intervention has for the moment saved European civilization. The merit that Fascism has thereby won for itself will live on eternally in history.

    First, THANKS for the "Supreme Court" label, or I wouldn't have gotten that part, Chipper. Thought maybe Penis was arguing before the Senate.

    Second, thanks for making the Administration Lawyer a penis without ears, cause the Admin does NOT listen to The People™ (except the ones they want to), and that lawyer WAS a dick.

    All in all, I give you a grade of "D". That's a good day for you, Chip.

  • invisible furry hand||

    Happy Friday back at you. Hope it gets funnier than Friday Funnies. That shouldn't be hard

    Please note that "penis without ears" above is to distinguish this from the more-customary "penis WITH ears" when referring to a "Dickhead".

    Its in your head now, forever, and you know it is true.

    Civilization = agricultural city-STATISM.

    The original initiation-of-force was domestication.

    Now the whole human race is domesticated. Dominated. By daily city-Statist aggressions.

    Aggressions that Fibertards support, whitewash, deny.

    Fibertard mocks freedom, autonomy, sovereign individuals in Non-State sociopolitical typology.

    Fibertard crows that Might makes Right.

    Fibertard jeers at victims of agricultural city-Statist aggression as powerless losers.

    Ann Althouse destroys someone named Charles Pierce for his pathetic and bigoted attack on Antonin Scalia.

    I understand that there are stupid liberals in the world. There are stupid Libertarians, stupid Conservatives, stupid anything just like there are smart anything. But how is it that the most stupid liberals seem to be concentrated in jobs as commentators for large publications?

    And since when is "Tony" a diminutive for "Antonin" as opposed to Anthony?

  • Ice Nine||

    Since forever, I'd say. But maybe just since they decided to make diminutives shorter.

  • Charlotte Corday||

    So is Antonin the actual Italian for Anthony? Like Santino is for Samuel?

  • invisible furry hand||

    Antonin is a French variant, but it pops up in other places too - like Dvorak, who was Czech. BTW Santino != Samuel in Italian. Samuel in Italian = Samuele. Santino comes from santo ie holy or sacred

  • Charlotte Corday||

    My knowledge of Italian names is pretty poor. And shame on me for not knowing Antonin was French. ;-)

  • invisible furry hand||

    Oh, and Anthony in Italian = Antonio

  • Socialistic Individual Sparky||

    Did she really destroy him? I mean, literally DESTROY him? Because that would be awesome.

  • Charlotte Corday||

    Professor Althouse marching around Madison with Pierce's head on a stick or maybe stabbing him in his bath would be quite entertaining.

    But sadly, she only made him look like a fool, which is pretty easy all things considered.

  • Ice Nine||

    His "joke" can be conveyed in its entirety without the accompanying graphics. Pretty sad for a cartoonist.

  • Charlotte Corday||

    Actually pretty common. All but the most brilliant cartoonists walk over their jokes. Take the cat's lines out of Garfield (leaving John talking and the cat just staring) and it goes from being really lame to oddly surreal and funny.

  • Scruffy Nerfherder||

    And that's why Gary Larson is a genius.

  • Charlotte Corday||

    Yes. And he only used a single panel. Charles Schultz is another example of how to do it. His best cartoons often ended with no dialog in the last panel. It is what is not said that is often the most important thing.

  • .||

  • Ice Nine||

    As it should be for a cartoonist and as was my point above. In this one Bok did the polar opposite.

  • Charlotte Corday||

    I was agreeing with you. I was just saying that most cartoonists suck not because they don't have humorous ideas. They sometimes do. But because they execute them poorly by writing too much and walking over the punch line.

    Gamboling about plain and forest, hunting and living off the land is fun. Farming is not. That's all one needs to know to begin a rethinking of the issue. The fundamental question was properly phrased by Colin Tudge of the London School of Economics: “The real problem, then, is not to explain why some people were slow to adopt agriculture but why anybody took it up at all.”

    But some scholars have advanced a different theory: that the wall [Great Wall of China] was built not so much to keep the Mongols out as to keep Chinese peasants in. Certainly anyone who got a good look at equestrian life on the steppe would prefer it to stoop labor in the rice paddies of that intensely hierarchical society.

    Buried deep in the new law is Sec. 113, an innocuously titled bit called "Preventing Cyberstalking." It rewrites existing telephone harassment law to prohibit anyone from using the Internet "without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy."

    As near as I can tell this law hasn't been overturned or superseded, and has been on the book since 2006. Thought it might be relevant to some folks...
