As always, our friend TokyoSand over at PoliticalCharge has searched the ‘Net for the best of the best. Thank you, TS, for giving us all a chuckle this afternoon!

    • Katherine Johnson was … way ahead of her time. One to whom we all owe much, and I’m not just talking about her scientific contributions. She showed the world that women are NOT second-class, inferior beings. I’m not sure what to think of the coronavirus … since our government is stifling the scientists who might have some answers, and covering up facts every day. It could be much worse than we’re being told, or much less … but, when they close the Louvre and all the Disney parks … something is rotten in Denmark, as they say. We know for a fact that Terminal Stupidity is at an all-time high! Just gotta turn on the news to see that. Sigh.

      • She was indeed!
        Coronavirus or something like was bound to happen; it’s Nature.
        Closing down public places is a wise initial precaution. It may be they will gradually open again once the initial fear has worn off.
        Governments will be judged by how they handle this

    • I agree … that one was not really a political cartoon, but more of a tribute. It’s good to remember the people who made positive contributions, and not just the buffoons who would destroy the world.

  1. Jill, Mark Shields said it well last night on PBS Newshour. 329 million are worried how the coronavirus will affect them, while Donald Trump is worried it will affect him. Now that he said it is a hoax, we can all rest easier. Plus, we can ignore the markets tanking over supply chain and delivery issues. Keith

    • Oh yes, I feel much better now! And, since Trump is such an expert in such things as viruses, perhaps we should just all switch docs and go visit Doc Trump for our ailments! I almost laugh when I think back to the time when, on the campaign trail in 2016, he assured us that he would become very presidential. I’m still waiting.

  2. This could be titled “How to find humor in a sorry situation”. Makes me wish I could do toons, but having tried the world owes me thanks for never going public with them. On the other hand, I might qualify as Prez if I could cartoon people — oh, just remembered, Turnip just repeats what others do and say!

    • Ha ha … like you, I keep wishing I had some artistic talent, but I’ve tried and a cracked eggshell is about the only thing I’m capable of drawing. We could be rich right now if we could only draw! Nah, you don’t want to be president … you’re too honest and kind. 😊
