Richard's Poor Almanac by Richard Thompson for December 21, 2010
Ben: Just who is this Richard Thompson feller, that he should have his own almanac? Bird: Gee, Ben, he's one of the great satirical caricaturists of our time, social and political! Ben: I've heard the same said about me. Bird: This person is a true artist, Ben. His perceptiveness and his wry wit blend beautifully with his ability to draw. Think of Michelangelo with a sense of humor. Ben: Ah, does ceilings, does he? Bird: Seriously, I can't say enough in his favor. Such is my admiration for the man and his work! Ben: I think he should go fly a kite. Bird: Come, now - talents like his don't come along every day. They orta give him the noble prize, or something! Ben: That's dynamite (to coin a phrase) - but how can one like someone this nobel? Bird: Hey, don't get me wrong - he's also a great human bean! Ben: I'll be the judge of that. Where can I see his work? Bird: Just turn this here page.
