  1. Huh?

    *scratches head*

  2. I remember in middle school I discovered a joke book where half of the jokes weren’t even jokes. I’d read them over and over, trying to at least see if there was an attempt at humor, looking for some type of pun or irony, but as far as I could tell there was none. Giving the book to my friends didn’t help either; they found each of the jokes not only completely, utterly unfunny, but humorless too.

    For some reason memories of that horrid little joke book always pops into my mind every Friday morning, sometime around 7:00 a.m.. I don’t know why.

  3. I chuckled. Then again I’m a simpleton

  4. The pig shoud be a cute little baby piglet, with big innocent eyes.

    The politician should be grotesquely fat.

  5. The bill is pork. So it is drawn as a big pig. Clever.

  6. It should have been a hugely fat farmer sitting on a mountain of cash, face contorted with screaming rage, trying to pull the last dollar from the hands of an emaciated taxpayer.

    In the background the farmers bloated brats could be seen punching the taxpayers scrawny underfed children.

  7. Too subtle? It has two heads and no poop-hole. So if it keeps eating…

  8. Too subtle? It has two heads and no poop-hole. So if it keeps eating…

    Cartoon pigs are infinitely expandable. Like the federal budget.

  9. But he brings it home with the punchline:
    “Yeah, and?”

  10. It should have been a hugely fat farmer sitting on a mountain of cash, face contorted with screaming rage, trying to pull the last dollar from the hands of an emaciated taxpayer.

    I like this one better, as well.

  11. People, it’s a *political* cartoon – it doesn’t have to be funny.

  12. Rhywun –
    It should be clever, at the very least

  13. Sorry, Rhywun, but I demand funny from political cartoons that have been posted free on the internet on a free forum. Where’s the quality control?

  14. The cartoon captures the pathetic essence of the farm bill. It could accurately portray much of the federal government. Good for Bush that he vetoed it (Even a stopped clock…). Good for McCain that he opposed it. Too bad he’s a war hawk. Shame on Obama for supporting the bill. (No surprise there)

  15. Good for Bush that he vetoed it (Even a stopped clock…).

    Meaningless gesture. He knows they have the votes to override his veto…

  16. But c’mon! It’s a pig! Pigs are funny! Didja miss the Simpsons Movie? I mean, a plain old pig with two heads may not be as funny as, say, a DUTCH pig with two heads, but it’s still funny.

    And anyway writing “Farm Bill” on anything makes it funny by definition.

  17. That’s easily a billion times funnier than this, though. Thanks, CNN.
