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 www.zazzle.com/jcrowtherart* (be sure to include the *).

First Dog

I'm not sure Barack Obama knew what he was getting himself in for when he announced in front of the world during his victory speech that his two young daughters had earned the new puppy they'll be taking with them to the White House. I'm sure that by now the lobby for every breed known to man has descended on him to plead their case. Add dog rescue organizations into the mix, plus no doubt those who feel the girls ought to have a cat, hamsters, goldfish, or pot-bellied pigs instead, and the choice of a Secretary of State will be far easier.

The White House has plenty of room for all god's creatures --politicians, statesmen and gerbils-- so why not take them all in? When the next deluge comes, as some of our citizenry predicts, the presidential residence will become Noah's Ark and float away to a better place.

Oh I don't feel so sorry for him on this one. What a better place to get your girls a new puppy? The white house, where a staffer will clean up every puppy puddle! I thought it was yet another example of our future president's brilliant strategic foresight!
