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 *).

Crescat Scientia

"Nine tenths of modern science is in this respect the same: it is the produce of men whom their contemporaries thought dreamers -- who were laughed at for caring what did not concern them -- who, as the proverb went, 'walked into a well from looking at the stars' -- who were believed to be useless, if anyone could be such." Walter Bagehot, The English Constitution, 1867.

The banker asks "how much?" The scientist asks "how come?"

To err is human, to make a habit of it is science.

Lolol, probably Einstein could not manage to program a cell phone either. Takes a teenager to do that! Good cartoon, John C.
