Bully beef

He seemed very brave at first, but after watching this cartoon in its entirety I’m not so sure of the purity of John the Bull’s call to sacrifice. Put your money where your mouth is, John.

Then again, I’m not so sure that John is even bovine. At the beginning he seems to have normal cloven hooves, but at the end, doesn’t he appear to have three fingers on each hand-hoof? Is he some sort of deep cover odd-toed ungulate psyops assassin? You tell me.

Frosty

It got a little warm here yesterday. 112° where I was at its hottest, but thankfully it cooled down to a brisk 92° by midnight. Today is going to be much better, they say. Only 102° or so. I wish Betty would come along and give me the cold shoulder.

Redrawn and quartered

If you think I’ve posted this Peter Rabbit cartoon before, you’re sort of right. A few years ago I posted the original version, but there is something about this ripoff redrawn version that charms me the way kid fan art or the best store front art charms me. It’s very clunky and wrong, but… I don’t know. What do you think? Original is here for reference.

There are lots of other weird redrawn cartoons on this clip as well. Happy Saturday morning to you.

Dove real beauty

The past two weeks we have been watching the progress of a mourning dove who has nested in one of our hanging plants on the porch. We’ve named her Gladys, though Benny looked up some dove facts and learned that this could just as easily be a Gary.

Anyway, we’re sticking with Gladys and it seems that something happened late yesterday. She’s sitting much higher up in the nest and looks enormous, and Benny is sure he saw a little fuzzy head, and… OH BOY I JUST HEARD A COO AND WENT OUTSIDE AND HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING –

Oh boy oh boy! Gotta go. Happy Saturday.

Mad cow

I didn’t think it was possible for a cartoon to make me consider vegetarianism, but the headless cow carcass gag in this did make me a little uneasy. Maybe that’s the point. The rest of the cartoon doesn’t seem to make much sense or even have a throughline beyond “musicians are frequently hungry.” And I can attest to that. Please enjoy while I go rustle me up some breakfast.

Barbarous

After a few weeks of putting it off and some discussions among friends on Facebook, I finally went in for a haircut this week. I haven’t had a steady hair stylist/cutter for a long time now other than Benny; the only ones that have given me good cuts have either moved away, been too expensive if I didn’t date them or have made me self-conscious of a couple of weird lumps I have on my head. So I’ve been hopping around.

I went to a new place Thursday, and I won’t say the name of the place other than to say I didn’t get my promised-for shoulder rub. I did get a very funny fellow who kept me in stitches and made me not notice until I got in my car that he had given me a Limecat hairdo

with some Angelina Jolie from Girl, Interrupted bangs

because of course the only people who will look fabulous with those bangs are Angelina Jolie and me, a fat woman in her late forties with salt and pepper hair. So right now I look like a woman who went nuts in the country club restroom. And I have a family wedding to go to today.

But good news – I’ve found two new possible guys to try as soon as this hair grows out. Oswald and Flip. They both have similar store branding techniques, but their cutting techniques seem unique to each of them. Which one do you think?

For fox’s sake

This morning I learned about drag hunting, which is sort of like fox hunting without the fox. The dogs are trained to follow a trail left by a human runner, which I guess some fox hunting enthusiasts don’t think is exciting enough for the dogs or something.

I don’t know, fox hunters. Judging from this cartoon, the hounds were chasing a top hat all along.

Happy peace, Felix pace

I know I’m about twelve hours late with my Saturday morning cartoon post, but oh boy, this is a good one. I spent some time at work this week researching some Felix the Cat history (so I know those first two little guys are named Inky and Winky), but I didn’t come across this cartoon until later today. It’s well worth the wait, I think. I could just listen to this soundtrack and be happy.

Zip gun

I’ve posted this cartoon before, but that post has a dead link so I think it’s okay to revisit now. Last time I posted it, I noticed something that was possibly offensive but now I’m not so sure. Maybe it was something I ate that day. Maybe it’s still offensive but things have gotten so much more toxic that in the grand scheme of things this doesn’t even register anymore.

But anyway, the thing I noticed the most about this cartoon upon watching it again this morning is that there are some delightful sound effects at about 2:14. Enjoy. This transfer isn’t the greatest but it’s the best I could find.

L’air du printemps

I might be speaking too soon, but from the weather forecast it looks like Persephone has returned from the Underworld. Welcome back, lady. I hope those pomegranate seeds were worth it.
