French impressionist

At first I thought the dog in this cartoon was doing basic blackface in front of the king, but it quickly became apparent that he was impersonating some foreign celebrity of the time. It’s not quite Maurice Chevalier, and it might not even be French? I don’t know. Maybe the dog is just bad at celebrity impressions.

Hyuck, Hyuck, Goose

Yes, this is a Simple Simon cartoon that I am posting on 3/14/15 at 9:26 in honor of Pi Day. If I were really fancy, I would be able to post this at 9:26:53, but I’m not that fancy. I actually had to look up the 9:26 part because I don’t even know that many digits of pi by heart.

I also only know the first two verses of “Simple Simon” by heart, but that’s okay. Judging from this cartoon that’s the part most people focus on, rather than the other part where Simon is fishing for whales and whistling in pain and such.

Traffic safety

That fairy tale neighborhood around here that I was writing about yesterday? I guess I should be more careful when I’m driving through it. That Prince Charming is a maniac.

I imagine that jazz aficionados were mortified when Disney started making hepcat nursery rhyme cartoons.

I don’t care. That pig makes me almost like the saxophone.
