My big Sunday cartoon today (click it to make it bigger) is about a topic that has been on my mind a bit lately. I ride motorcycles and a bicycle through the streets of Los Angeles and cannot tell you the number of times I’ve almost been mowed down by someone messing with their smartphone while they are supposed to be driving. Seriously, people, is your Facebook status or that text that just came in worth spending time in prison for manslaughter? But, like all dark clouds, there is a silver lining: I never wait in traffic lines anymore when I need to get over into a crowded lane. I just go past the traffic, then slowly and calmly move into the desired lane at the last minute in any one of several huge gaps left by people who are looking at their smartphones instead of moving when it’s their turn. Most of them don’t even notice I’m cutting in line because to do that, they’d have to be paying attention to what can be seen through the windshield of their car.

Now You See Her

Ever wonder how magicians do that trick where they cut a live woman in half? As unpopular as this post will be with “magicians,” I’m going to explain it to you now: They actually cut a living woman in half but the trick is that they use a saw coated with quick-coagulating, self-healing medicine that immediately seals the woman’s body off so she doesn’t die. As long as he puts her back together before her lower half dies from not having a heart, she is fine. I guess I should have said SPOILER ALERT first. Sorry if this disillusions you. (more…)
