The Buddhist Koan which succinctly illustrates what some seem to feel is an illusive metaphorical meaning in Mr Fish’s cartoon is:
“HOW DO YOU SAY ‘Boo’ IN ARABIC?”

Anyone watch Bill Maher this last wkend? I don’t remember the lady’s name who was on there. She looks like every single republican female you see on tv these days. Some of her comments were so outrageous I would expect to see them all over youtube (although I haven’t checked it out yet)..
Like her comment that we have a right to maintain a presence in Iraq saying we’ve lost 3,000 lives over there, why shouldn’t we have a RIGHT to maintain a presence over there..
the crowd just freaken gasped when she said this along with a few other utter ignorant comments from her.
Others on the panel tried to make her understand that Iraq has lost 130,000 INNOCENT bystanders due to our presence and she says that’s not our faults..that we didn’t kill them..
this is a perfect example of the republican party and scares the shit out of me!

It’s simple: If you dish out terrorism, it comes back to you.
Ergo, the more we bomb and invade in the middle east, the more terrorism will come back to us later.

I agree I believe that it’s US terrorism that is yo yoing.

From what I have been told by Philopino friends of mine yo-yo meanes “Comes Back”. It was at first a weapon of war. It became a toy when a “parking meter” salesmen by the name of David Duncan saw a Philopino boy playing with a small wooden one out side his hotel in downtown Los Angeles. This might add a different leavle of understaning to this cartoon or maybe this is just adding to the NOISE.

I think it’s plain; it’s US terrorism that is yo-yoing.

that’s stupid. Terrorism and the U.S. are both ON the yoyo. So they are the same thing?
Maybe the cartoon would make sense if “Terrorism” were the string… though I suppose it would be hard to write such small letters… how about a finger at the end of the string that says “Terrorism”? There are any number of ways to make this make sense.
it seems Mr. Fish is confused either on the workings of a yoyo, or the concept of a metaphor.
