Our Absurd Life: 03/15/21 – Dogged Researchers

Dogged Researchers

Howls to the Night Owls

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon marks Day 4 of Dog Week — not that I’m marking my territory, or anything. 

Thanks to Ed for sending me one of his favorite dog cartoons.  In the first panel it shows a guy telling a dog to “Play Dead.”  In the second panel the dog is now playing a guitar singing a Grateful Dead lyric.  Really clever.

I’m sure it’s apparent I’ve lost a lot of steam with my Our Absurd Life with CV-19 1/2 series.  I just haven’t had as much interest in lampooning the pandemic.  Maybe I’m just tired of it and trying to forget about it.  Kinda hard to forget when you’re wearing a mask all day.  In the house, too.  I am sure there’s some good funny ideas around the vaccine roll-out.  We’ll see.  

I wish everyone a restful rest of your night.  

Until mañana . . .


And . . .
