The Man Who Invented Surfboarding

I don’t know about anybody else, but I find the mental image of Al Gore gloating — or even smiling — scarier than global warming.

But seriously… since he probably wouldn’t be gloating, what’s the joke here?

Nobel Chad Prize

Nicole: This is getting too easy — here are two more

Click more to see them, plus one sent by Autumn Harvest — though for all practical purposes, they’re all the same comic.

So, here’s the question: When these cartoonists draw the Supreme Court taking away Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize, do they somehow believe they’re being stunningly clever and original, or do they just consider it obligatory to churn out their own version? (more…)

What In The World…?

Have we driven Planet Earth to drink, or is this a global warming reference? I’m inclined to think the latter, since one of the reported results of global warming is the loss of polar icecaps.

But the more interesting question is this:

Earlier this week, referring to a few days of unusually cool weather, a radio newsman said “So much for global warming, huh?” Which once again made me wonder: When people say this sort of thing, are they really so astoundingly stupid that they think “global warming” means that everybody’s weather, every day, is getting warmer across the board? Are they making a joke hoping everybody else is astoundingly stupid? Is this simply their way of mocking the concept of global warming (while not realizing that they’re doing it in such a way that they’ll sound astoundingly stupid)? Or is there another option I haven’t considered?

Jim Moore: “I don’t get this. Is the joke supposed to be that Sid is supposed to be an optimist, but he’s actually a pessimist? Or maybe, since Sherman said ‘Uh-oh,’ Sid’s nickname is actually ironic?”
