Three cartoons

Three cartoons from Saturday: a Dilbert (on the nature of human beings); a Pearls Before Swine (with yet another ambiguity); and a Zippy (on politics, sort of).



L’homme machine (de La Mettrie, building on Pascal): a robot made of lunch meat.



This one turns on the ambiguity of offensive: as an ordinary adjective ‘giving offense’ vs. as a pseudo-adjective evoking the noun offense (vs. defense) in sports.



A nice build-up to “All politics is loco”, playing on the formula “All politics is local” (a slogan generally attributed to Tip O’Neill).

    Of course, knowing how Pearls Before Swine generally works, one hardly has to read past the first panel.
