Cartoon Saturday


In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, time flows on to a spring of little hope* ...

The Senate GOP pushed the political Red Button on Thursday, exercising the so-called "nuclear option" to force a vote on Neil Gorsuch's appointment to the Supreme Court in the face of Democratic opposition; a woman in California was seriously injured this week when she fell 60 feet from a bridge while taking a selfie; legendary insult comic Don Rickles passed away at the age of 90, you hockey puck; in Stockholm, Sweden, a man hijacked a beer truck and used it to murder at least four people and injure many others when he drove it into a crowd; and Mr Trump hosted a visit by Chinese leader Xi Jinping at the "Southern White House**."

Lest I once again be accused of whining, I thought I'd move to a topic as timely as politics, but perhaps less sensitive to accusations of my failure properly to understand how the world works. Drone along with me as we look at cartoons about ... well ... drones ...

Even birds love the high-tech ladies ...


Good idea ...


What happens when nature wises up? ...


And the worst part of it is that the storks will also lose their health insurance ...


When drones go off the reservation ...


Migration or privacy invasion? ...


The next step in the technology of delivering pepper to your table ...


Dogs can take advantage of technology, too ...


How God plays Halo ...


Somebody is always offended about something ...


And there you have it ... Bilbo has droned on for yet another week, ha, ha.

It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here in NoVa. Enjoy your own weekend, and be sure to come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

Bilbo

* Gandalf, from The Fellowship of the Ring.

** Otherwise known as Mar-a-Lago, Mr Trump's lavish Florida resort.

Another wonderful collection. The "can't tell robot jokes anymore" says so much!

Drone watching could become that dangerous.

Drones as targets for BB guns?
