As we hang on that fiscal cliff, hill, slope, whatever, debating taxes, deal with the kooks of Norquist, McCain, GOP sour losers, conflict in the Middle East, lunch at the White House, Christmas shopping, and Power Ball, lets find time to laugh.  And, all  that I have listed is in this Sunday’s Funnies and much more!  Enjoy!

Retired, not by choice but the body said sit down! Married with two grown daughters and 3 grandchildren. Best friend is Mansion, my great dane. Love to laugh, love to make someone laugh, love to make new friends. I think I am a lot of fun but you can be the judge of that.

    They say laughter is the best medicine and if that’s true, sally, thanks for a good healthy dose of it this week. The added bonus of having this up during the week is that when some of the pols get on TV and practically act out their cartoon parts perfectly….They even follow the script! :lol: Grover gets the award this week, IMO, he is the biggest cartoon and has the biggest cartoon ego on the telly.

      Bito, don’t worry, ole’ Grover will be in this Sunday’s Funnies, too. Along with some new players.

      Bito, I know you and I have our share of meds but I am glad I gave you a pill of laughter you can visit whenever you have the time!

      Please keep me informed on your favorite. Love to know which ones made you laugh and smile. :)

    Once again, Sally, thanks for posting these. Difficult to choose a favorite this week, so I’m going with two-- “Secessionist States” and “Secessionist Flag”.

    What a great ineup of cartoons, Sally, The Norquist ones were very funny and I really liked the self-reflection one and Jesus shedding poverty because “he saw the deals”.

    Fun stuff!

      AdLib, Jesus would leave Heaven for a good deal! I hope he was taking Doubting Thomas to Costco!

      My favorite this time was Captain Hook. That had to hurt!

      Jesus thanks you, Kukla, Fran, and Ollie (aka McCain, Graham, and Norquackers) thank you, the secessionists thank you, the President and Romney thank you, Santa thanks you, and I thank you!

  5. Great line up Sally. I loved the ones about the secessionists. What a bunch of morons. I liked the ones about Susan Rice, as well. McCain and Leslie are really making fools of themselves.

      KT, I just loved that caricature of Sarah Palin! It looks just like her winking! There were a lot of McCain and Norquist’s this time. I had to weed them down! And, the rich complaining by the pool, so real of them in their entitled state of mind.

      I am so glad you enjoyed them, KT! Thanks for letting me know.
