    1. American Pie 3, with the most embarrassing sex accident ever

      1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail 3: Revenge of the Rabbit of Caerbannog

        1. That rabbit is DYNAMITE!

          1. *slap!*

  1. Millenials be like, “Wut?”

    1. I think we need a poll on that.

      1. I’m a millennial. I opened the comments purely to see what the rabbit thing was. Figured it was Carter, but didn’t know more than that.

    2. The Jimmy Carter rabbit incident

      Obviously it was ripped off from Monty Python.

      1. I never tire of the Jimmy Carter rabbit incident.

        1. I do.

          Jimmy Carter is/was/always will be an absolute idiot. But because he’s an idiot he catches blame for stuff that isn’t his fault or that he didn’t do wrong.

          OK, I’m told that rabbits don’t carry rabies. But I grew up spending summers in the country and only learned that when I was in my 40’s, because I got interested in rabies. Before I did the research what I knew was that if you are in the country and you see an animal acting oddly, you assume it is rabid and act accordingly. For rabbits, swimming and approaching humans is practically the definition of “acting oddly”.

          Carter saw a rabbit swimming toward him, assumed it was rabid, and did his level best to kill it. Perfectly natural reaction for a farmer.

          1. Carter saw a rabbit swimming toward him, assumed it was rabid, and did his level best to kill it.

            Which totally explains why the rabbit is alive to this day and still gnawing at him.

            That is *so* Jimmy Carter.

  2. OT: college degrees aren’t worth it for at least 1/4 of graduates.

    Note in the figure the sudden historically low wage that occurs ~2011. Just when the all-donkey policies become effective. It’s stunning.

    However, when we look at wages for the 25th percentile of college graduates, the picture is not quite so rosy. In fact, there is almost no difference in the wages for this percentile ranking of college graduates and the median wage for high school graduates throughout the entire period. This means that the wages for a sizable share of college graduates below the 25th percentile are actually less than the wages earned by a typical worker with a high school diploma.

    1. Agree on the steep drop in ~11; telling. As well as the bump up in the last “recession”.
      What I don’t necessarily get is the article’s point. Yes, the income for college grads is a range and at some point a percentile will intercept w/ HS grads average. Seems completely and utterly expected.
      Kinda like saying the 75th percentile of caucasion dick length is larger than the median black dick length and saying, ‘see, white guys have as big a dicks!’

      1. What I don’t necessarily get is the article’s point.

        Well, Steven, not everyone got it like you did. For the past 30 years, the government and pretty much everyone else viewed a college education as an unalloyed good. Just two years ago, Obama ran on a platform which included a plank of having everyone attain some sort of post-secondary education as a goal.

        1. Uh yeah, got that. And the median income of a college grad is still higher than the median income of a HS…and by my calibrated eyeball, it’s gotten higher the past couple decades.
          Since we’re talking ranges here, at some point they will intersect since sometimes basket weaving BA degrees just don’t pay as well as a construction job.
          Again, I don’t see how the article succeeds in refuting the whole ‘college degree good’ narrative.

          1. Right. But I believe the intended audience of article is not people who understand the concept of an independent 2-sample t-test, like you do, but those future basket-weavers who think “medians” are those things in the middle of the highway.

            For many of those kids, or parents, stumbling across the article, the concept that working with your hands might bring a higher income that some college-degree jobs is a shockingly novel one. You have to go slowly with these people.

            1. I’m tracking, thx

        2. Put it this way, the article’s title, “College May Not Pay Off for Everyone” is just about as silly as an article titled, “High School May Pay Off for Some” (Gates, Zuckerberg, etc). People at the ends of the bell curves do not refute the differences of the averages…

        3. ..and if we’re going formal, it’s Stephen

        4. For the past 30 years, the government and pretty much everyone else viewed a college education as an unalloyed good. Just two years ago, Obama ran on a platform which included a plank of having everyone attain some sort of post-secondary education as a goal.

          30 yrs.? I’d say the assault on progressive education and march towards universal post-secondary education started with New Math in the late 50s and 60s with decisive defeat being when Johnson pretty enacted the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in ’65.

          At that point, it didn’t matter if you wanted to be a basket weaver or rocket surgeon, HS was going to prepare you to go to college to be a rocket surgeon or label you a failure.

          1. I think it got rolling with the GI Bill after WW2.

            The statistics aren’t much different throughout the decades. The problem today is that kids go into serious debt to get those degrees, much moreso than in the past. So I think the study really understates the declining value of a college degree. And just think of all those who went into debt and never graduated (survey covers graduates).

    2. There are college degrees, and there are college degrees.

    3. That could also have something to do with a lot of those 25th percentile and below people being baristas with BA’s in Philosophy or French Literature or Victim Studies or some other worthless bullshit degrees.

      1. Yes, it would be worthwhile to look at STEM degrees and liberal arts degrees separately. My guess is that while there is much more value, the value is still declining since even for STEM degrees people go into debt so much today.

      2. Philosophy lumped in there? Really, dude?

  3. I’ll give Bok credit for a half way decent depiction of Carter. Although I don’t ever remember him frowning.

    The Obama one eye closed is classic.

    All-in-all…. not a bad drawing. Or maybe I’ve just lowered my expectations?

    1. With Bok, lowering one’s expectations is always best.

      Let me get down to business here…

      NEEDZ MOAR LABELZ!

      oh, and HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  4. Why is the elephant in blackface? and who is that creepy redneck with the rapey smile?

    1. who is that creepy redneck with the rapey smile?

      A horrible experiment mixing DNA from the Joker, a zombie and James Earl Carter.

      1. I was thinking Mr. Sardonicus myself.

        1. I was thinking Mr Joyboy’s grandfather

    2. who is that creepy redneck with the rapey smile?

      I just figured it was his Billy Beer face

  5. Just for comparison

    Carter – Cyrus Vance and Zbigniew Brzezinski

    Obama – Susan Rice and John Kerry

    I’m wishing for Carter at this point (who I do think gets somewhat of a bad rap as he inherited that steaming pile of shit known as Nixonomics)

    1. Yes, he did – just as Nixon inherited a steaming pile of economic shit from Johnson. Some of us are old enough to remember when Johnson and his bunch took the silver out US coinage due to too many dollars having been created out of thin air.

      1. Poor Jimmy Carter. He was nominated in a year when the Democrats could have gotten a talking dog elected, and consequently savaged each-other in faction fights and ended up with a compromise nobody liked much. So he arrived in the White House with no allies in Congress. The Republicans were going to be obstructionist on general principles, and every Democrat looked at Jimmy and saw a place holder until THEIR candidate could get the nod. He had to deal with an economy that had been SNAFU’d by JFK (trying to fight a war without raising taxes), FUBAR’d by LBJ, and pushed into BOHICA territory by Nixon. He was congenitally unable to imagine the solution to that mess (lower taxes and de-regulate) so he was basically screwed.

        He would probably have been a total clusterf*ck without those factors; he’s a Modern Liberal, One Each. But he had the chance of a tissue paper dog chasing an asbestos cat through hell.

        He was elected President of the United States and HIS OWN PARTY treated him like dirt. No wonder he’s a neurotic mess, running around the globe, playing kiss face with assorted “world leaders’.

        1. *Poor Jimmy Carter*

          I see you are one of those people who use poor in place of “scum-sucking, Islamic fanatic arse-kissing, commie-loving, Jew-hating, enemy-enabling, dirtbag”

          1. I just think he’s a tragic casualty of Lefty idiocy. He thought that getting elected meant something, and then found that the cool kids still didn’t want to play with him. All the factions in his party were too busy jockying for position for the next election that they completely missed that screwing Cater ment they were going to lose.

            They took almost all the political capitol they gained from Watergate and pissed it away. And Jimmy’s presidency got drowned in the flood.

  6. I don’t get it.

    1. Zombie Jimmy Carter is asking O! if he wants to borrow his vorpal bunny to attack Warren Buffet, ISIS and the Burger King. That way he can get back to the links for another 9 before sundwown.

      1. Excellent summary.

        Are you available every Friday to translate Bok’s artwork into English?

        We need more people who can look past the scribbles and decipher the true meaning of the Friday Funnies!

        Happy Friday, Folks!

  7. So now Scatman Crothers is being attacked by clowns with rabbit feet – literally, feet that are rabbits?

    What bad dream is this, and what does it have to do with uncircumcised, artisanal, ghey, Mexican, pot-smoking, SOCONZZzazOMFG!, Cosmotarian Millenials??

    Awful. Therefore, perfect. Happy fucking Friday, Reasonoids! Hope all your dreams are crushed and you suffer Warty Hugeman/STEVE SMITH rape in hell for eternity! Cheers!

    1. That middle paragraph was awesome, Alma.

  8. WHO IS THE KING OF CANADA?!?

    1. The child of the Princess, as is tradition…

        1. You SF’d the link, which might be a good thing

    2. The BURGER KING HAS DEPOSED ELIZABETH II!!!!!!!

    3. Justin Bieber?

  9. Oh:

    *SLAP*

    (that was on everyone’s ass)

  10. I hate to admit it, but I actually enjoyed this one.

    Carter looks just maniacal enough, and NotMyFault looks properly disdainful. I can see this being recycled in 30 years, with BO offering his rabbit tumor to President Chelsea.

    1. “BO offering his rabbit tumor to President Chelsea”

      Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

      1. Eewww!!

  11. While mocking Bok, let’s us not overlook the leftist dreck that is the output of most editorial cartoonists.

  12. Golf clubs need “Golf clubs” written on it to really make it a political cartoon.

    1. Golf clubs need “Golf clubs ISIL strategic planning tools” written on it to really make it a good political cartoon.
