The Kea's Nest

The Kea is a well known, cheeky, mountain parrot from New Zealand. What better name to take for myself to comment on the funny drawings I find online?

Three for one

Man, I've been running around getting ready for a new semester and didn't get a change to link to a few poignant cartoons on friday.

I was going to mention Bunny's timely and thought provoking cartoon that seems directly related to the current/continuing violence surrounding Israel. I figured I'd leave my own comments on the situation out of it for now. The cartoon carries all the important things.

But Kate got to it first anyway.

There is something about this particular A Softer World comic that touches me. I think it manages to capture some of the confusion modern men might feel, unsure of how they should relate to woman, stereotyped into a sexual relationship but aware of so much more.

It makes me think of the way people accuse me of flirting with people but I feel like I'm just being a friend. I've never had anyone on the receiving end claim I was flirting, so I've not worried about it but it seems like a dischord in the way society operates.

Finally, a bunch of storylines come together at Medium Large, revealing that the pill people go around making drastic changes to comic strips to improve them. I love their idea of shifting the focus of the Garfield comic to Lyman myself.
