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. For mugs, t-shirts, and other products visit my gift shop at* (be sure to include the *).

Bohemoths On Parade

"Football is far too much a sport for those who play it well. The rest of us, and that includes our children, get our exercise from climbing up the steps in stadiums, or walking across the room to turn on the television." President John F. Kennedy, 1961. Ah, how far we've come. Nowadays we have the remote, though one president in recent memory got a workout reaching for the pretzels during a football broadcast. One of the little buggers almost choked him to death and caused him to fall down and bonk his head. So much for exercise.

John C. afraid that what I know about American Football could be put in the thimble and shook up. Sure this is funny but other than the fact that the USA wears funny looking uniforms, have no idea what is humorous about the cartoon. Nicely drawn though.

The "gag," Lee, such as it is, has less to do with football and more to do with mothers and sons. I wonder if this has something to do with why we have a "gag reflex?"
