Cartoon: Lint for Lent

Cartoon: Laundry for Lent
Cartoon of a son and mom. The son says, “Bobby’s family isn’t doing their laundry anymore. He said they were giving something up for lint.”

Lent was one of those words that confused me as a kid. How many words to we play around with that leave kids puzzled? Church is certainly a big place for that. Keep it simple. Is it right to say happy Lent? It may be hard to do that if the thing you gave up was chocolate.

Laugh Lines

Caption reads: “Come on, Mrs. Podgummer! Laugh! It’ll be good for your wrinkles.”

Why is it the people who need to laugh the most are the ones who find it hardest to laugh? Prim and proper just doesn’t seem all that fun to me.

Laughter is a good face lift. So laugh today!

A true friend

Caption reads: “Only a true friend would let you know you have a duck on your head.”

A real friend is one who let’s you know if you have food on your face instead of letting you proudly wear it all day. That’s right, a friend will tell you when you are looking like a goober. They’ll say, “Excuse me, emperor, but you are wearing no clothes.”

We all need a friend like that. Considering how sloppy I can be, I’m glad I have friends like that. It saves on self-inflicted humiliation!

Gold ring in a pig’s snout

Caption reads: “I don’t get it. I thought the jewelry would get me tons of dates.”

Proverbs 11:20 paints a picture. This is what it says:

A beautiful woman who has no sense is like a gold

ring in a pig’s nose. Proverbs 11:20 (NIrV)

Someone can seem quite attractive until you get close and realize that is all they think about. It is far better to have a beauty from the inside out, isn’t it? It seems like I’m stating the obvious but our celebrity culture sure doesn’t get it.

This morning, the comic strip, “Non Sequitur” by Wiley had a good take on the similar subject of celebrity worship.
