Weekend Funnies

Mr. Fish not only has a great bunch of cartoons, but also some fun items for sale at cafepress, like a bumpersticker with a flag background that says, "United We Suck," or for those with simple tastes, "My President Is A Jackass." You can also see his cartoons at Harper's, which has begun running them. Click on the cartoon to enlarge it.

In the only-amusing-in-a-sick-tragicially-true-way category,
The Onion
has revealed Iraq's handy new color-coded terror alert system. At the current "Elevated" threat level:
"Citizens living in towns with populations of 1,500 or more should prepare for the smoke of burning vehicles to obscure the sun and expect hostages to be tortured for several days before being killed."
Here's Tom Tomorrow on the Ground Hog Day experience that Iran is fast becoming.

And because the pickings are getting so slim for contemporary humor (is it that bad, that we don't even want to laugh anymore?) there's this archived piece by the emminently commonsensical Joe Bob Briggs on our barbaric behavior last year before the war towards France and Germany.
