  1. It’s exactly “funny”, but at least it’s topical.

  2. It’s NOT exactly “funny”…

    Christ, I just woke up.

  3. Let the Friday “not so funny” bashing begin!

    Well, maybe after people get off of that Chapman bashing thread about the drinking age. Man that was a bad article ..

  4. Anything’s better than Bok.

  5. I hate it when I get a joke, but it’s so obvious that there’s no reason to laugh. That happens every Friday here.

  6. The moose says nothing. I think that’s appropriate for this cartoon.

  7. Well, maybe after people get off of that Chapman bashing thread about the drinking age. Man that was a bad article

    Yeah no kidding. This “funny” isn’t funny but I just can’t get behind bashing it after that Chapman swill. Maybe we should continue to bash Steve, his fascism being so much more offensive than Scott is unfunny.

  8. Man, that’s scary.

  9. Get over it.

  10. In the interest of rewarding improvements in behavior, I’ll say that this comic wasn’t soul-numbingly bad. Certainly not funny, and it stradles the line between caractature and racism before squeezing back across to acceptability, but as someone said above, *anything* is better than Bok.

  11. Hilarious! Next, he should make a cartoon of Chavez doing something. That would rock.

  12. Not funny. Still, I’d say it’s not bad either, overall.

  13. Next week- a dog biting a mailman!

    Uproarious.

  14. The Taliban with nuclear weapons? Man, that’s funny. It’ll be even funnier when my shadow is burned into the pavement.

  15. The big “red button” was a nice touch, but it would be better with a big wooden crate with “radioactive” stickers all over it in the back of a cart being pulled by a scrawny, moth-eaten donkey. The crate cold have: “to: Uncle Sam- Do not open ’til Xmas” on it.

  16. at least it is well-drawn. and what the artist is getting at is clear. and it’s not like *bad* or really racist or like mind-numbingly 180-degrees wrong. as friday funnies go here it isn’t bad.

    now they should do a funny one.

  17. Taliban-types get their butts kicked in Pakistani elections.

  18. To be fair, how many standard one-frame political cartoons has anyone seen that are actually funny.

  19. To be fair, how many standard one-frame political cartoons has anyone seen that are actually funny.

    I saw one once that involved Jefferson dressed as Robespierre, holding the severed heads of Adams and Washington while surrounded by his half-slave children that was run in the paper during the election of 1800 that was worth a chuckle.

  20. I don’t catch many editorial cartoons, but this one from a couple of months ago made me LOL, as much for the caricature of the figure at far right (physically, not politically, right) as for the joke. [Disclaimer: the cartoonist is a hometown hero of mine, so I admit some lack of objectivity.]:

    (Could a kind regular – if there are any kind ones here – point me toward a handy guide to tags, text links, etc. for use in H&R comments, if there is one here?)

  21. Nobody ever made the mistake of calling me kind, but I’ll help anyway. You just use standard html; you can find a cheat sheet here

  22. point me toward a handy guide to tags, text links, etc. for use in H&R comments,

    You can also find some html tutorials here and here.

  23. Taliban-types get their butts kicked in Pakistani elections.

    Yeah, and democracy types get their butts kicked in the coups that follow Pakistanni elections. 😉

  24. The Taliban with nuclear weapons? Man, that’s funny. It’ll be even funnier when my shadow is burned into the pavement.

    Think that’s a laugh? How’s this: Bush International about a year ago instituted direct, non-stop flights from Pakistan to Houston. You may recall that the Houston, Texas area is home to probably the large petro-chemical complexes in the country. I’m laughing so hard it hurts.

  25. Bush International about a year ago…

    Er, make that Bush Intercontinental.

  26. Fair enough, smartass sob, but even then, the nice men in natty uniforms and mirrored sunglasses also don’t tend to be Taliban-types.

  27. the nice men in natty uniforms and mirrored sunglasses also don’t tend to be Taliban-types.

    Oh. I thought I had read that a significant portion of Pakastanni military or security force officers are pro-Taliban.

  28. Yeah, but not the ones that won’t get gunned down during the (chuckling as I type it) “secretly US-funded” coup. Isn’t it great to have a CIA to protect us from the horrendous evil that they unleashed upon the world?

  29. Isn’t it great to have a CIA to protect us from the horrendous evil that they unleashed upon the world?

    That who released upon the world – the Taliban or the CIA? What is the evil to which you refer? (I can’t tell from what you typed.)
