Well, there goes the pet parrot.
If he know it was coming, then why didn’t he prepare? Nice planning ahead, DAD!
With all the tariffs they can’t afford to shop at Walmart any more for cheap Chinese clothes.
It is ALWAYS cheaper to spend more money for something that actually works than to buy the “least expensive” one.
Any time congress does something, I can yell “Bad Idea” twenty times and nobody listens.
Stone age 2.0
Because rich people need tax breaks.
I don’t know what they’re cooking, since the economic collapse was around the same time as the extinction event.
Sort of like a dog crossing the highway. You know it probably won’t end well but you can’t do anything about it.
I’m still eating canned food from the 2008 crisis.
Given No. 1’s economic ignorance, this scenario is not as far off as might be supposed.
Don’t laugh! this could be real If stump china n russia have their idiot way!
It’s all part of Making America Great Again. You should feel proud to pay the “Patriot Tax” so Trump can get his way.
Besides, don’t you know that the Chinese are going to pay the tariff just like Mexico is paying for the wall?
I was watching Youtube yesterday tell how we now have only 6 years before the extinction of mankind. Now, I’m really into the concept of global warming and am keenly aware of weather changes that affect plant growth but I’m not seeing the elimination of mankind in only 6 years. But, we may be getting to the tipping point leading to such an event in that length of time as we get closer to the 2 degree centigrade point of global warming. This is why that comic is more frightening, than comic.
Are they cooking their cat??
Phew, I was getting tired of those post-climate change apocalypse stories.
There aren’t enough caves in the world to house all the people in it.
This cartoon sure looks familiar. The caption may be a little different, but the exact situation has been treated before.
Oh, the aftermath of socialism. ;-)
Mom, at her sarcastic best.
Note the wife is doing the cooking. Probably because hubby already screwed up big time and can’t be trusted to do it.
It’s like the warnings about the probable damage Buttercup would do it elected. Nobody really listened and look what happened. (Of course, none of the choices were that good, but he was obviously the most unlikely to do any good for the US)
He tried to warn people of the bear market, but all everyone heard were Wiley bears so they brushed him off…
I hate to tell you that I told you so, but …
This reminds me of an old Talking Heads song.
That sounds way too familiar.
Is that a kangaroo rat? A little chewy – no?
I don’t think he would have. Only RIGHT wing nutcases are ready for the apocalypse. LEFT wing nutcases expect someone else to do it for them. Whatta world!
Oh Boy, BBQ!!!!!
Woke up this morning….. society’s dead.
The scary thing is… this isn’t exactly fiction.
My tribe! Homo Sapiens Cassandra
I’d keep it down to once a day…
Shouldn’t this have a caption, "Twelve years from now, as predicted by Cassandra Occasio-Cortez? Of course the cause was different than predicted. It was overspending through socialism.
They know it’s coming! Why do you think they are so determined to go to Mars and the moon. Got to find a new place to live.
I noticed that Rat isn’t in today’s Pearls Before Swine. I hope that’s not who they are cooking.
A modern-day Noah.
Wiley kids yet again! Superb.
Even during the Great Depression the Plutocrats were doing fine and making nice with the Nazi empire. Now they can be their own Nazi style empire.
Nightg: if you can’t beat ’em…
I am predicting a big problem too. But not so big I have to stockpile trade goods and survivalist toys.
Joe Smith has a family farm on marginal land none of the big agriculture companies want. He hunts and fishes for food and pleasure. Montgomery Caruthers III owns a major investment firm, three mansions, and a country retreat that his grandfather left him. He has a safe filled with gold Krugerrands in case anything bad happens. Something bad happens. Almost all people in cites and most in the country die. Monty and his family successfully flee to their country retreat. Monty needs food, so he takes a bagful of Kruggerands down the road to buy food from Joe. What happens?
1) Joe ends up with most of Monty’s gold before law and order are restored.
2) Joe ends up with all of Monty’s gold then lets Monty et al starve to death.
3) Joe shoots Monty and enslaves his family.
4) Joe shoots and eats Monty and his family.
