[N.B. No goats were harmed in the creation of this cartoon.]

 

 

 

 

[N.B. The movie poster for "Arachnaphobia" read "8 legs, a brain, and an attitude." This cartoon was faxed to someone in the Tank Corps during Desert Storm. The image was prolifically photocopied and then distributed to most of the tank crews, who proceeded to tape it to the inside of their tanks. The artist is proud of whatever support and inspiration his work gave to the valiant men and women who fought during that time.]

 

 

 

 



Funniest e-mail joke we've heard (since the “Amish Virus”):

A traveler was stumbling through the desert, desperate for water, when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he walked toward the image, only to find a little old peddler sitting at a card table with a bunch of ties laid out for sale. The parched wanderer asked, "Please, I'm dying of thirst, can I have some water?"

The man replied "I don't have any water, but why don't you buy a tie? Here's one that goes nicely with your clothes."

The desperate man shouted, "I don't want a tie, you idiot, I need water!"

"OK, don't buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, I'll tell you that over that hill there, about 5 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, they'll give you all the water you want."

The man thanked the peddler and walked away toward the hill and eventually disappeared out of sight. Three hours later he returned. The man at the card table asked, "I told you, about 5 miles over that hill. Couldn't you find it?"

"I found it all right. They wouldn't let me in without a tie."

TRAGEDY IN EASTERN CANADA
Gander NLFD (CP)
Canada's worst air disaster occurred earlier today when a Cessna 152, a small two-seater plane, crashed into a cemetery early this morning in central Newfoundland. Newfie search and rescue workers have recovered 826 bodies so far, and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the evening.
