Sunday afternoon toons: Special "Sad apple, long-hair, corn-husker" edition

Three weeks left to the election. Three long weeks of all-thumbs economic planning, and shameless race- and terrorist-baiting. Let's see what the weekly toon review can do to make things . . . suck less.

Let's start with Bob Geiger's weekly toon-fest.

And at Daryl Cagle's round-up, the p3 Picks of the Week include Mike Lane, Jeff Parker, David Fitzsimmons, Jimmy Margulies (didn't banks quit giving away toasters when I was a kid?), Scott Stantis, and Marshall Ramsay.

p3 Perspective Award to Cameron Cardow for noticing that anything else happened this week besides the economy and the election. (Yes, I know what you're thinking, but it really did!)

p3 World Toon Review: Peter Pismestrovic (Austria).

Ann Telnaes (whose Sarah Palin isn't up to the level of her Dick Cheney yet, and with luck she'll have little further occasion to polish it) reminds us that we're not facing the prospect of global economic meltdown all on our own. Heavens no--there's someone in charge.

Opus reveals: the end of the world now has a date, and apparently a price tag.

Bail out, brother! This 1944 Tom & Jerry is a good antidote the next time you catch yourself thinking that the latest generation invented the idea of strange music, indecipherable slang, and silly looking clothes.

p3 Bonus Toon: Amid all the high-minded talk about the economy, Jesse Springer notices something missing. (Click to enlarge.)
