Mr Fish, do you happen to work as a freelance illustrator? I am sure your works must be getting a lot of attention and somebody must have approached you to work on their projects. Wonderful, keep up the good work!

This is my favorite Mr. Fish cartoon of the past 3 years (how long I’ve been online/visiting here.)

Where’s the Che?

I seriously doubt we have the same historical
background that we had in the formation of Cuba,
values-wise.

But, hey, I could be wrong. Any scholars in the
audience tonight? On the plane? In the elite?

Where are the speeches about what people are fighting
for? So far, all negative. The expression is: what
are you fighting *for*, not *against*.

King Tut.

Being one of the original beginnings of organized religion, it
should be worth preserving along with places in India. Both
places were going strong long before judeo/xtianity were a
gleam in the eyes of hebrew, catholic and other religious
organizations from whence they got their acts together.

To reiterate my point about the irony of the masses wanting to protect
Tutankhamun’s golden mask:  Much of what we know about ancient Egypt is
because a venal, corrupt, ruthless narcissistic plutocracy managed to outfit some
fancy afterlife abodes and during their lives live in palatial splendor.  The masses
during the various dynasties had very little control over their lives and were
exploited by the privileged. It was a closed society- not much different than under
the rule of Mubarak.

I like the way CNN is calling this whole scenario:

“Not revolution, revolt.”

What a joke.

This is the REVOLUTION the Muslim world has been waiting to erupt in order to dig out the entrenchment of a foreign, tyrannical, military led empire- Amerikan Empire.

Reminiscent of the Roman empire, and those before and after.

Hope this is the pushing out of oil dependency and the implementation of greener options like solar, wind, water, etc…

First place to go down in flames stateside would be the tomb ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skull_and_Bones ).

Next the FED Reserve building, then that obelisk across from Lincoln, sticking up like a prick of pride and a disrespectful obscenity across from wholesome Abe ( added wholesome for patriot affect wink

Cheers!

@John Poole. Well come on now, Tut’s treausures are priceless records of an ancient time. If the British ever revolt nobody can expect them to smash and burn down their history either. If America were to revolt we’re not going to burn down the Smithsonian.

““I doubt life for the masses under the boy king had it much
better.”“

john poole,

You got that right, w proved it beyond a shadow of doubt and
now his ‘brother’ has picked up the torch and carries it. It really
is wearing on a citizenry with all these baby boomer assholes
who get elected to office with updated ideology that is more a
criminal venture or agendas for personal, political and financial
gain at the expense of the taxpayer. Such it the cost of ‘smaller’
and unregulated government.

Oh, if only the U.S. citizenry can take the initiative as the Egyptian and Tunisian people have… and FIRE their hierarchy of scoundrels.

The audacity of Mubarak to stay in power, what a buffoon… but bigger idiots are those believing our country to be in the ‘right’ by supporting dictatorships globally.

It is easier for americans to talk like an Egyptian than to WALK
like an Eygptian.

I doubt life for the masses under the boy king had it much better. Evidently
regular folk are now trying to protect on their own the cherished Egyptian
antiquities from possible looters. Becoming a protector of the golden mask of
Tutankhamun while protesting against the present pharaoh wanna be seems like
deep deep irony. John Poole
