Are we there yet?  Are we at the cliff?  We are in the funnies along with the announcement of a Royal Birth a comin’.  Santa is here with some of the familiar faces and headaches.  The Pope is a Twitter?? And, just a few non-political funnies thrown in just for the fun of it.    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.

    This isn’t even close to being anything as funny as what you have posted, in fact the funniest thing is probably seeing Ole’ Bob get all giggly.

    Fiscal farce? Comics have a laugh at “cliff” debate

  3. Another great compilation Sally. Love the “Rice Card.” I also like the tributes to Dave Brubeck, and the one with the two-headed elephant. The TP really has done more damage than good for the GOPers.

      KT, see I am a little sick in the head because my favorite is the two birds in the tree and snow falling…….it’s not political but it made me laugh along with the two blind people on the park bench and their seeing eye dogs. I just thought it would be good to add a few that weren’t political now and then. ;)

    Good morning, Sally -- another lovely “must read” in addition to local papers and the Sunday Times. Love the selections indeed!

    We had the Pope Tweeting his 15th-century standards, and wow did THAT create an uproar! Defenders of the Pope equated mocking him with dissing Mohammed (pbuh) or other saintly and divine figures. Hello? The Pope is a MAN. No one got mad at the New Yorker cartoon some years ago where the (probably vegan) Dalai Lama says to a hot dog vendor, “Make me one with everything.” That is actually a VERY funny play on words -- and probably so to the Dalai. After the beating our president took, calling out the Pope for pretending to be hip is pretty tame. So thank you for including the cartoon so now the whole WORLD can see it!

    Have a lovely remains of the day. We look forward to seeing your entries next week. This feature has become a treasured part of the Sunday routine for me and, I think, most of us. Thanks again as always.

    Okay, Sally, you’ve done it again. Great job! Once again, difficult to choose a favorite, so I’ve got two. The McConnell turtle on the filibuster (the one that looks like a Dr. Seuss cartoon) and the “Rice card”. As you told me Friday night, you had some good ones coming, and you delivered. I must admit, political cartoonists are great; I don’t know how many more ways they can come up with to show the nonsense of the “fiscal cliff”. Yet they just keep coming up with ways to amuse us in the midst of all this stupidity. Thanks for all you do to bring these gems to us.

      Glenn, thank you liking them! I thought you might like the Bubba Bubble one, too. I laughed at the McConnell turtle out loud when I found that one. Kinda looks like him. :)

        Sally, the Bubba Bubble does pretty well describe the people who live around me. One day, my neighbor, said something about “the idiot in the WH”, and I told her that I didn’t think he was an idiot, and she looked at me as if I had two heads. Funny…that’s how I look at most of them, ’cause you must have to have two heads to be a republican/tpartier. That way you’re not talking out of both sides of your mouth; you’re talking either out of the far, far right head, or the just far right head. Or, some might say they’re talking out of the “little head”, which is appropriate also. Anyway, Happy Sunday!
