Obama Mia !

My cartoon on the left reflects an actual bank in the Financial District of downtown Boston. Over twenty years ago, the National Bank of Greece had such a sign mounted on the facade of the building in which it was housed. For several years it was one of the most photographed walls in Boston. The standing joke ended when officials of the bank finally got the joke and its implications..


Barack Obama was washed up on a beach after a terrible shipwreck. Only a sheep and a sheepdog were washed up with him. After looking around, he realized that they were on a deserted island.

After being there for a while, he got into the habit of taking his two animal companions to the beach every evening to watch the sunset.

One particular evening, the sky was a fiery red with beautiful cirrus clouds, the breeze was warm and gentle - a perfect night for romance.

As they sat there, the sheep started looking better and better to the lonely Obama. Soon, he leaned over to the sheep and put his arm around it.

But the sheepdog, ever protective of the sheep, growled fiercely until Obama took his arm from around the sheep.

After that, the three of them continued to enjoy the sunsets together, but there was no more cuddling.

A few weeks passed by and lo and behold, there was another shipwreck. The only survivor was Hillary Clinton.

That evening, the man brought Hillary to the evening beach ritual. It was another beautiful evening - red sky, cirrus clouds, a warm and gentle breeze - perfect for romance. Pretty soon, the man started to get 'those feelings' again.

He fought the urges as long as he could but he finally leaned over to Hillary and told her he hadn't had sex for months. Hillary batted her eyelashes and asked if there was anything she could do for him.

He said, "Would you mind taking the dog for a walk?"

How to Save the Airlines

Dump the male flight attendants. No one wanted them in the first place.

Replace sll the female flight attendants with good-looking strippers. What the hell -- they don't even serve food anymore, so what's the loss?

The strippers would at least triple the alcohol sales and get a "party atmosphere" going in the cabin. And of course, every businessman in this country would start flying again, hoping to see naked woman.

Because of the tips, female flight attendants wouldn't need a salary, thus saving even more money.

Muslims would be afraid to get on planes for fear of seeing naked women. High-jackings would come to a screeching halt, and the airline industry would see record revenues.

This is definitely a win-win situation if we handle it right - - a golden opportunity to turn a liability into an asset.

Why didn't Bush think of this? Why do I still have to do everything myself?

Sincerely, Bill Clinton.


Faster than a seedy Clinton,
More powerful than a liberal pol,
Able to skirt political issues in a single bound,

Look, down in the mud!
It's Barack!
It's Hussein!
It's Obama-man!

Yes, it's Obama-man! ... Strange senator with Muslim ties who came to America with powers and inexperience far behind those of poorer men.

Obama-man! who can change the course of mighty debates, bend facts with his bare teeth. And who, disguised as Barack Obama, mild-mannered Senator for a great Democratic Party , fights a never-ending battle against Truth, Justice, and the American way!

I just might get a job in the corporate world again if the airlines did that.

And the bank, it took them how long to figure it out? Thanks for going Greek!
