  1. I was under the impression that the sun was pushed across the sky by a celestial dung beetle.

    1. Not pushed, purchased, not dung beetle, eminent domain.

    2. OMG! Racism! He called Obama a shitbug!

  2. Maybe it would make more sense if the sun wasn’t actually up.

  3. Payneful.

  4. LOLZ, that one was funny. Maybe I am more awake than I should be.

  5. Heh, captures his arrogance nicely.

    I’ve seen worse here lately.

  6. “Heh, captures his arrogance nicely.”

    I agree.

  7. WTF? Friday Funnies aren’t supposed to make me smile. You fucked up, Payne.

  8. Reversely racist cartoon.

  9. It’s kind of sexist to have the First Lady asleep while important decisions are being made.

    1. How do you know that is the first lady?

      1. It’s not Bawny Fraank. The lump isn’t big enough.

  10. Haughtiness captured nicely. Sad, profound and accurate. Chuckle inducing. Best Friday Funny to date, IMO.

  11. Who said that was the First Lady, Fist?

    1. Good point. With the short dark hair and the size if the hips holding up the blanket, I’m thinkin the devil in a blue dress has reappeared.

      1. Devil in a red dress, bb. Pelosi was wearing red when the house passed the health care bill.

        Payback is a bitch!

      1. I agree. It IS racist. But then, anything a white man says is racist.

  12. A Fucking Plus!

  13. I like the “obama as pompous twit” approach. Well done.

    -jcr

    1. Didn’t you know “elitist” is a code word for racist? That’s why I like this cartoon, there’s no chance someone will mistake it for racist. I think.

  14. This week’s FF has not been rated 10x unfunnier than last week’s. Henry Payne has issued a press release crediting his talent.

  15. An overdone joke, but it is a joke, which is better than Chip Bok can do.

  16. I would have made that decision when they woke me up at 3 AM.

    1. Thread-winner! Funnier than the cartoon!

  17. Judging by the artwork, Payne has been looking through his back issues of the New Yorker, I’d say.

  18. Not funny
    Tired punchline
    Poor artwork

    Grade: D-

  19. Not too funny but accurate. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Obama’s worshippers referring seriously to him as The Sun King.

  20. Display background worthy.

  21. Another good one.

    Obama is such a loser.

  22. I appreciate how Henry Payne has drawn the biggest fascist since
    George W. Bush showcasing the same puffed up chest and raised chin haughty postering that Obama copies from Mussolini.

    This is an amusing and telling political cartoon. Bravo, Henry!

  23. I think it would be even better if the butler were prostrate and praying to Obama.

    I pray to Obama (not for, TO). Prayer changes things.

    1. Wayne Campbell, Garth Algar: [to Alice Cooper] We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!
      Garth Algar: We’re Scum!
      Wayne Campbell: We suck!

      ——————————————————————————–
      Wayne Campbell: I know I don’t have his looks. I know I don’t have his money. I know I don’t have his connections, his knowledge of fine wines. I know sometimes when I eat I get this clicking sound in my jaw…

  24. Finally, a Friday Funny that made me laugh out loud!

  25. Better caption:

    “The sun is up. Issue a press release crediting my sunrising powers.”

    Or something like that.

    My God, does Obama fantasize about himself during sex? What a narcissist.

  26. My only point is that if you take the Bible straight, as I’m sure many of Reasons readers do, you will see a lot of the Old Testament stuff as absolutely insane. Even some cursory knowledge of Hebrew and doing some mathematics and logic will tell you that you really won’t get the full deal by just doing regular skill english reading for those books. In other words, there’s more to the books of the Bible than most will ever grasp. I’m not concerned that Mr. Crumb will go to hell or anything crazy like that! It’s just that he, like many types of religionists, seems to take it literally, take it straight…the Bible’s books were not written by straight laced divinity students in 3 piece suits who white wash religious beliefs as if God made them with clothes on…the Bible’s books were written by people with very different mindsets…in order to really get the Books of the Bible, you have to cultivate such a mindset, it’s literally a labyrinth, that’s no joke
