    Yes to the left panel, and it took a while to enlarge and see the monkey’s hand in the right one! Really thought on first glance it was just being “dirty”!

    I’ve seen plenty of folks on a “diet” eating a salad heaped with cheese, bacon bits, eggs & blue cheese dressing.

    I think this (10/25/12) comic is cute, with the statue getting off the horse to pose with the tourists.

    “I think this (10/25/12) comic is cute, with the statue getting off the horse to pose with the tourists”
    Really? I thought the cartoonist was trying to say how dictation of thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason based on actuality (other than imagined actuality), outside of all aesthetic and moral preoccupation with the one proviso: that the practitioner drape a cloth over his head.
    …j’st MHO..

    You’re not up on the history of the camera, are you? That’s how early pictures were made —with the photographer wearing that cape over his head so he could get everyone into the picture.

    MHO: you’re reading too much into the ‘toon. But then, I’m a Floridian, & our #1 industry is Tourism….

    arg…. meant “…so he could see that everyone was in the picture before the flash powder went off.”

    "You’re not up on the history of the camera, are you? "
    Oh yes I am! At my fingertips I can call up anything I need to know, like, according to wikipedia, the camera was first invented in 1973, in some obscura chambre in Pigalle, Paris. As usual, porn was at the forefront of most inventions (as my mother used to say: pornography is the bastard of inventions, or something like that) The 1st image was produced with a pin-hole camera. Peep-shows back then were frustrating voyeurs, so one clever peeper, Louis Daguerre and his cross-dressing Niéce/nephew called Joseph Nicépairophore who was the peeped, figured out that instead of sniffing the chemicals they were taking, they could develop a method of saving the peeps onto glossy paper and made a fortune selling pin-hole peeps all over Paris on every street corner. The men who sold peeps were called pimps. When the peeped were a little cold, ‘cos posing naked can get one a little chilled, the focus cloth was used to warm them up. Often, when the photo was about to be taken, the photographer couldn’t hold onto the focus cloth and so conveniently draped it over his head. And so discovered that by keeping out environmental light, he could focus better without blowing his load too soon; like you said, those flash powders could be very bright if erupted prematurely.
