    I’ve always thought that going into politics was legal grounds for disinheritance.

    Har! And what was that site that George Rekers, anti-gay activist, got his “luggage carrier” from?…

    Nah, don’t worry, Pup will get bored of it and get something else in a week or two.

    That toon reminds me of the old joke about the three girls and the old nun. Truly, there are some depths of meanness no decent human being can ever walk out of ;) .

    4uk4ata, your description of the joke isn’t ringing any bells. Can you elaborate, at least in a way that won’t get bleeeped?

    Wether we appreciate Oliphant or not, anyone familiar with political cartoons in general should know that the opinions they express in their art are those of the cartoonist . Here in NM the newspaper in my city (Albuquerque) is Conservative as is its syndicated political cartoonist, Trevor. Oliphant leans to the left, Trevor to the right. If I don’t like they’re message, I’ll whine to the editor about it. Nine time out of ten the editor senses my leftwing progressive bent and trashes my letter. Which is O.K. I guess. At least someone read it and made her stop and think. Be glad this forum respects your right to freedom of expression. Any self respecting newspaper/magazine would junk at least half the trash sumitted here.

    Wait, shouldn’t he become a lawyer first before venturing into politics, as did the Blechh girl and Obama, both legal Fleagles?

    Fritzoid… well, if it gets flagged, it gets flagged.

    In one nunnery, the old abbess was on her death-bed. Three girls who had trained to become nuns, but eventually had decided against it, were by her bed to ask for her blessing. She asked them, first, what they wanted to be when they went back to the world outside.

    “I am going to be a shopkeeper, mother,” said the first. “Be careful, child, you will face much temptation. You will face greed and human misery, and you must pray to God to keep your heart on the right path. I trust in you; go with my blessing.”

    “I am going to be a singer, mother,” said the second. “Be careful too, my dear,” said the abbess with her rasping voice. “You will face much temptations, and the people around you will carry much sins. Place your trust in the Lord and pray for his guidance. You have my blessings.”

    The third one, the most rebellious and wild-headed, seemed to be uncharacteristically nervous. “I… I have had enough of this life, mother, and all in it. I am going to be a prostitute - “she said, and gasped as the abbess’ bony fingers clasped around her wrist, holding her in a vice-like grip. “What did you say,” hissed the old abbess, with a voice as warm and kind as a blizzard.

    The girl blanched, but thought that she couldn’t get in any more trouble anyway. “A prostitute, mother.”

    The abbess sighed, and relaxed. “Thank God. I thought you said you were going to become a Protestant.”

    Just imagine what would have happened to that girl if she said she was going to be a politician ;)

    Thanx, 4uk4ata. I don’t think I’ve ever heard that one.

    This has absolutely no relevance to the cartoon, but here’s a joke that yours brought to mind:

    Three Irishmen were sitting in a pub across the street from a whorehouse. As they sipped their pints, they watched the comings and goings through the front window.

    First, they saw a Protestant minister enter the brothel. “Oh, that’s bloody disgraceful! But what else can you expect? The Prods are a pack of hypocrites, and I wouldn’t spit on one if he was on fire.” Nods all around.

    A while later, they saw a Rabbi go in. “Those Hebrews! A bunch of stinkin’ perverts, sure and it’s true. They ought to be run out of Dublin, the lot of them.” Nods all around.

    Finally, they saw a Catholic priest enter the ill-famed house, and they all took off their hats and held them over their hearts. “Oh, that’s a terrible shame! One of the poor girls must have died…”

    4uk4ata and fritzoid both get early dismissal from school today for bringing the winning jokes to class.
