The message is Foghorn Leghorn saying: I say...I say...boy.

Oh I get it now, I thought Trump was the target. Oh well, shoot first ask questions later!

BTW, around here in Central New Yawk, we call the state capital Albania.

I like to think of Foghorn Leghorn as a practical and pragmatic man, errr rooster. I prefer to think he is open to any scheme that gets him a leg up on whatever situation he's in and that he has no time for petty foibles like racism. He's on a mission, whatever that may be, and would bond with anyone regardless of race, creed or color.
He's a good ole boy but he's the kind of good ole boy who would rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.

After all, he is a creation of the Tar Paper Shack boys in Burbank!
Talk about an oppressed bunch!
The early Warner Brothers cartoonists were percieved as second class citizens by Warner management and for the first four years much of their work was done in a row of tar paper shacks erected on the Warner lot. Accommodations were as sparse as the pay. The summer heat in Burbank cooked both the tar and cartoonists in equal measure!
It took a strike to force management to up the pay and working conditions.

GOOD MOURNING AMERICA!



I hope everyone is having an enjoyable and relaxing weekend, like most in America!
I find that British Political humor provides a bit of subtlety missing in American Humor. I am particularly fond of Dave Browns cartons, that have the recurring theme related to Trumps hair being Pootins pet ferret, though there is still debate over ferret vs. weasle. See what you think and select supporting cartoon images to make your case. Not sure if this will be accepted by the media tool so here is the H-url https://twitter.com/DaveBrownToons/media
Dave Brown cartoons
This one re Theresa Mays visit made me laugh out loud, enjoy!


Trump Theresa May, Rough Trade

I am still having trouble with several jpg images, though some seem to work just fine.

I try to scan the Daily Mail and The Independent, for an idea about how we are being viewed by outsiders, though with that traditional Special Relationship we always have had with the Brits.

When an image won't post sometimes it's because it is protected from copying in some way. The way around this is to save it to your computer then change the name and upload it to photobucket or whatever cloud based photo app you use, then copy the url of the image from there and link it here with the [img] code. It's a pain in the ass but it always works.

Three women go down to Mexico one night to celebrate college graduation.

They get drunk and wake up in jail, only to find that they are to be executed in the morning though none of them can remember what they did the night before.

The first one, a redhead, is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if she has any last words. She says, I just graduated from Trinity Bible College and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf of the innocent.

They throw the switch and nothing happens. The executioners all immediately fall to the floor on their knees, beg for forgiveness, and release her.

The second one, a brunette, is strapped in and gives her last words. I just graduated from the Harvard School of Law and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent.

They throw the switch and again, nothing happens. Again they all immediately fall to their knees, beg for forgiveness and release her.

The last one, a blonde, is strapped in and says, Well, Im from the University of Texas and just graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and Ill tell ya right now, yall aint gonna electrocute nobody if you dont plug this thing in.
