  1. Wot’s a stress test? (I’ve been overseas too long).

  2. so the GOP is like the banks? undercapitalized? huh?

  3. It would have been funny if Uncle Sam was replaced by a donkey in an ACORN T-Shirt.

  4. He had the drawing already done and applied a stress test caption to be current.

  5. Not the worst Friday Funny, and that’s saying something.

    But whatever material that cane is made of, they should make the banks out of that — they’d never fail!

    Wakka wakka wakka…

  6. Just as I feared. Today’s FF is just as humorous as Divided by Infinity. Thanks Fluffy.

  7. I don’t get it.

  8. I snorted.

  9. I don’t get it.

    Where’s the mouse? How do you stress test an elephant without a mouse?

  10. Libertarian 2010.

  11. Chapter Two: Introduction is up.

    I like Browyn’s idea of a Google Doc selected people can edit. I’ll host the finished edits on the blog (replacing the edited versions, or keeping them all as versions… whichever makes the most sense.)

  12. wtf was that? Anyone wanna offer their opinion?

    I think CatMoses might have nailed it ..

  13. LoneWacko shifted nervously from one foot to the other; he had concealed himself somewhat by lurking in a small group of trees in the garden department of Home Depot. He peered through the leaves of a spindly young maple tree at the group of day laborers on the far side of the parking lot.

    “Shopping for a tree?”

    He whirled around. “Huh?”

    “Are you shopping for a tree, sir?” asked the young man. His brow furrowed nervously as he took in the sweaty, disheveled man before him. “If you have any questions, I’ll do my best to answer them…”

    The young man stopped, and peered closely at the Wacko. “Are you okay? Shit, you’re not having a heart attack or something, are you?” Or jacking off, he thought to himself. He barely squelched his sudden urge to guffaw.

    LoneWacko frantically shook his head. “N-n-no. No. I’m okay. I, uh… I was thinking about something else. You kinda of took me by surprise.”

    “Let me call Lisa, the manager. She knows a lot more about this stuff.” He chuckled nervously. “I should be in the roofing department, but the other guy in this department called in sick. He’s at the beach, the fucker. Oooh, sorry; we’re not supposed to use the “F” word in front of customers”

    LoneWacko looked quickly around. “No, seriously, don’t bother.”

    Lisa had threatened to file a restraining order against him, once, and he knew he had to get out of there before she spotted him.

    He shot one last baleful look toward the jabbering foreigners. Smoking cigarettes, telling stories, stealing jobs. How dare they act as if they belong here?

    How dare they ignore him? He brusquely swept past the baffled sales clerk.

    “Another time,” he thought to himself. “Another time.”

  14. Bravo, P Brooks, Bra-VOH…

  15. I don’t get it, and I’m proud of that.

  16. I’m guessing the stress test refered to in the comic is the original meaning, not the gussied up bank meaning, since the elphant is old. I’m also guessing this wasn’t funny.

  17. I didn’t get this one, myself, but here is what should have been included. Since the elephant is getting a stress test, I guess he is at the doctor. Put an eye chart on the wall, but have a picture of Obama, adn the letters can be P-IN-KOC-OMMI-e or something, and then you can have limbaugh preparing to get on the elephant, he is saying to hannity, ‘this is our party now, let’s hop on’, and the cane is making scared eyes at limbaugh and thinking in a thought bubble ‘oh no, i can barely support one elephant!’ Then you can add a big pile of dung behind the elephant, and some flies, adn one fly is like ‘yeah, this is good times for me, they have done this all over the country!’ and then add Manny Ramirez saying ‘thanks a lot doc!’

  18. Argus,

    That ‘version’ gets my seal of approval.

  19. Little Manfred,

    That cartoon is good.
