  3. WHAT time is it?

I was in a hell of a mood before I found Zen in Cat Bounce. Be sure to make it rain now and then for extra-soothing cat bounciness.

Cat Bounce is a website where you can make cats bounce. It’s totally mesmerizing and I’m pretty sure it’s an advanced hypnosis technology that was put in place by the cat army to finally have complete control.

Mind The Badger- British Workmen Paint Road Lines Around Dead Mammal

BBC News – Hampshire workmen paint white lines around dead badger.

Hampshire workmen paint white lines around dead badger

The dead badger has been removed and the lines will be painted
Workmen painting white lines on a road left a gap for a dead badger because they said it was not their responsibility to move it.

The animal had been killed about a week before on the A338 near Downton, on the Hampshire-Wiltshire border.

Hampshire County Council said the workers did what they thought “was best” because it is the district council’s job to remove carcasses.

The badger has now been removed and the painting will be completed on Friday.

The county council said there would be no extra cost to taxpayers because the company was being paid a fixed rate for the job.

Businessman Kevin Maul was on his way home from work when he noticed the break in the lines.

He said: “I couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I saw this poor old badger who had been there over a week.

“I’d seen him every day as I went by and wondered if he was going to be picked up.

“Then on Friday I drove home to see his body between the lines – they had painted the road, but left a gap where he lay.”

Pat Bagley, SL Tribune Cartoonist Extraordinaire

Yes, Virginia, there IS satire in Utah. Don’t miss the “GOP Values Party!” cartoon…. or the “Senator Orrin McClownshoes” one… or the “Digitally Enhanced Pixelated Basin” one … oh, just keep clicking the little seagull.

Here’s a few selections of Bagley’s cartoons just in July and June:


We Republicans are the Values… PARTY!!


Digitally Enhanced Pixelated Basin

and my personal favorite, now that Al Franken has finally taken his Senate seat:


I think that’s Harry Reid on the left (naturally), and it’s definitely Borin’ Orrin on the far right, of course.

Salt Lake Rocks! First Porn, Now Liquor!

This cartoon via Salon by Keith Knight covers all the essential points about what makes Utah (specifically Salt Lake) “Funique.” Weird liquor laws (which are going away July 1), extremely rowdy, drunk crowds in bars due to either weird liquor laws or everybody acting out to spite the Majority Religion, and FRY SAUCE!

Some long-delayed props to Salt Lake by the K Chronicles.

Kinich Ahau Index Down!

Tom the Dancing Bug has a great cartoon behind Salon’s adwall, well worth clicking through to see after waiting for the ad to load.

Language geeks will enjoy the Mayan in-jokes and economics geeks will enjoy the pretty colors of teh secksy Mayans and their silly claims that their civilization and its blood-sacrifice based economy would endure until the end of time.
