Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail.

Thy Will Be Done

If the day of the week had been named after the evangelist Billy Sunday he could be called eponymous, but alas the day came first, and there's no term for that other than aptly named. This is just a random and essentially meaningless observation on the way to quoting him: "Going to church doesn't make a man Christian," he said back in the 1920's or thereabouts, "any more than going to a garage makes him an automobile." Good thing to remember in this time when faux Christiantity has become so inextricably entwined with politics.

John C., do not understand this cartoon as I have not been keeping up with the political scene lately. Really tired of all the five year old mentalities who are running for office on both sides.

I think, Lee, you may be looking for more there than's there. It's not really a political cartoon, but certainly obliquely, but not of necessity, references the financial situation.
