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 *).

Odds 'n Ends

As predicted here yesterday, the pet lobbies are lining up, pushing their choice for the new FBB, or First Best Friend. Turns out it's more complex than we thought. The Obamas would like to get a pound puppy, to the delight of the animal rescue folks, but as the President-elect announced in one of the more substantive moment of his press conference yesterday one of the girls is hyperallergenic, so they might have to setttle on a new designer breed that doesn't aggravate allergies. The good news is that it's been a long time since we've heard a leader of the world utter a word like hyperallergenic. The outgoing guy still thinks misunderestimate is a word.

And as the world sits precariously on the brink of unprecedented social and economic upheaval... what is it we are focussed on? A puppy? The media knows no bounds in the distraction stakes.

I especially like that pithy "oops," Jean [grin].... but yes, you're right, anything to take the eye off the ball.

The oops was in reference to my having inadvertently posted "twice" ;-/
