I think Mr Fish needs a grammar lesson.  “The least likely you are…?”

Yes, and I already heard about you doctors wanting to take our organs by eminent domain after we die. Next they’ll be harvest doctors murdering people in their sleep to sell their organs. ThXs, but no thanks. I’ll keep on smoking and then I won’t be such sweet pickings for your kind. Don’t believe me? I bet you do….and by the way, wheter cigs kill me or not, it’s NONE of UR Business, none of you doctors; to force people to live by ur power hungry rules. Contol freaks. Big Bullies. Most of you are just like Bush. No wonder most of you support him!

I am a lung doctor.  Smoking is the cause of at least 90% of all lung cancers.

Still, the cartoon is nearly incomprehensible.  I get the feeling that some point is being made about the Iraq debacle, but I’m not sure what it is.
