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.

Law and Order With a Side of Fries

The firestorm of recent revelations about cabinet appointees and their cavalier approach to little things like paying their taxes leads me to suspect that it's not a limited phenomenon. Lord only knows how many of our "leaders" have interesting closets. I'm reminded of the practical joker who sent the same anonymous note to ten of his town's leading citizens. "Everything has been found out," he wrote. "You still have time to move out." Nine of the ten left town.

Yes... nothing quite like those four little words "I know your secret" to strike fear in the hearts of (pretty much) everyone.

Jean, along this line, many years ago I left a job with a documentary film company in NY to take a job in Europe. My employer told me he'd figured out I was going to work for the CIA. I denied it vociferously but he wouldn't be dissuaded. "You broke your cover," he said. I finally asked him how, but he refused to tell me.

Zeesh, I know a real live CIA agent? I am impressed but mainly by the terrifically funny cartoon today. Love it.

John that's s-o funny. I reckon the not-knowing-how -he-knew-what-he-thought-he-knew-and-wasn't-telling would drive me crazy!
