Sunday afternoon toons: Special 'Getting the Valentine's Date You Want' Edition

Bob Geiger isn't back yet.

At Daryl Cagle's round-up, you get to take your pick: Cupid's arrows! Fertility drugs! Performance-enhancing drugs! Or a Treasury Secretary who's clearly on something!

p3 Picks of the Week: Milt Priggee, Cal Grondahl, Rob Rogers, J. D. Crowe, and Clay Jones.

The p3 Harmonic Toon Convergence citation (Part 1) goes to Pat Bagley and Cameron Cardow.

The p3 Harmonic Toon Convergence citation (Part 2) goes to Mike Keefe and John Trever.

The p3 Harmonic Toon Convergence citation (Part 3) goes to John Darkow and R. J. Matson.

The p3 Award for Best Adaptation from Another Medium goes to Walt Handlesman and Jeff Koterba.

p3 World Toon Review: Olle Johannsen (Sweden), Dry Bones (Israel), Dario Castellejos (Mexico), and Jeremy Nell (South Africa).

The NYTimes commissioned Abraham Lincoln caricatures from seven artists. Check out the results.

Ann Telnaes reminds us that some people get the Valentine's Day date that they want, and some don't.

Guest toon: Tom Tomorrow notices a familiar tune in the air (and it ain't "All Along the Watchtower"). Also, beware of imaginary assurances from presidents!

Portland homeboy Jack Ohman gets to the apology we'd really like to hear from Obama.

We've heard the most, but you're the least! Stan Freberg got a plug here yesterday; today he makes his triumphant return to p3, and displays his singing chops, in this 1956 Warner Bros. gem, "Three Little Bops," directed by Fritz Freleng.

p3 Bonus Toon: Jesse Springer is pissed: Congress passed this $800 billion stimulus package, and all Oregon got was this lousy T-shirt. (Click to enlarge.)

Beware of shrinkage.
