men in coffin is plotting revenge
coffin cartoon for college kids

I’ve written elsewhere that I’ve been doing Morbid cartoons for a very long time. Bob Mankoff, editor of the New Yorker, spoke once and said that a great percentage of cartoons submitted there are about death. They don’t publish that many…but that doesn’t stop us from churning them out.

I can’t say that I have a grudge against any college teacher, but I think we all want to do our tutors (and elders) proud on how we turned out. In this case, of course, he didn’t turn out so well.

My latest cartoon for PsychCentral is about a woman’s secret fear on a busy street.

teacher fish teaches fish school cogito ergo sum

Actually, I think I used the wrong word in this caption. The name of the class for this school of fish should be called Philosophy, not Logic, as  the theorem, I think, therefore I am is by a philosopher, not a logician!  (I took both subjects, but apparently not enough of either.)

Some cartoon ideas just resonate with a cartoonist more than others, and they keep working at it with different captions, trying to get it “right”! This is one of mine.

  • I think, therefore I am
  • Cogito ergo sum
  • je pense, donc je suis

Rene Descartes wrote this theorem in French rather than Latin to reach a wider audience in his country than just scholars.

He forgot text-talk.

My latest cartoon in PsychCentral is about the lady or the tiger. (If you’ve heard of Descartes, you probably already read the short story.}

young boy begs for money for college tuition
They start pandering at a very young age.

I don’t know why I posted two cartoons of children in a row — they’re really not my favorite people. But I like this one – it’s like a Kickstarter campaign held in person, isn’t it?

Would be great to add to educational journals, business publications, textbooks, and general. Educators and teachers have the self-confidence to laugh at themselves.

 educator feels he failed when his students appear on reality TV
educator feels he failed when his students appear on reality TV

I know, right? (shades of the latest terrible Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, who said this until your ears bleed.) It’s true, the contestants on reality television don’t seem all that bright much of the time……Wait a minute. I actually write and tweet about these reality shows, so what does that make ME feel like?! Of course, we’re all just a little bit better than the people who actually appear in them, of course. :)

This poor teach or professor, taking it personally! Don’t worry, you don’t have to graduate to be on TV, especially when they’re unscripted.

mother complains child watches too much tv
What does “too much TV” mean?

I haven’t a clue.

Just kidding! I love love love TV. Step away from my TV, and you won’t get hurt.

I really could care less what kids do when they’re safely locked up at home, but I Googled how much TV the kiddies actually watch now. Here you go: how much TV kids watch:

According to TV ratings company Nielsen, kids in 2012, age 2 to 11, watched an average of 24 hours of TV a week. That’s an average of three and a half hours a day.
