Have you ever been crawling in the desert, wishing you had something to drink? Neither have I nor has anyone I’ve ever known or been related to, but apparently it happens a lot because there are tons of cartoons about it. We cartooner types love to find a new angle on the classic cartoon motifs so here’s one about that guy who crawls in the desert.  It reminds me a bit of a joke my dad told me when I was a kid. It was something about a guy going into a bar and seeing a bowl of peanuts with a sign that said “Peanuts, $1,000,000 each.” The guy tells the bartender those peanuts are never going to sell at that price and he replies, “I only need to sell one.” This is where I would laugh.



This preacher dog cartoon is from my uber-religious*, known associate, Wayno of Pittsburgh. It was crafted after a similar Bizarro cartoon about a cat preacher, so I used the same background and added the dog where the cat used to be. Wayno chats about this on his blog today and shows the cat cartoon. Have a looksee right here, then come back. He also added a funny link to my name, in the tradition of what I do to his name each time I include it in my posts. I got a good chuckle out of it, even thought I LOVE Christmas.*





PREZARROS: Here, from 1996, is another dog joke about dogs. The dogs in this cartoon are fashioned after my own canine companions at the time, Steve and Bruno. bz 10-15-96 PetsOutlawedWEB
