Sunday morning toons: Special "Unsettling Car-Based Sexuality" edition

(There. Let's see what that title does for traffic.)

No time for dilly-dallying this week; we'll cut straight to the chase, beginning with this week's toon round-up by Daryl Cagle.

p3 Picks of the Week: Mike Luckovich, Pat Bagley, R. J. Matson, Joe Heller, Bill Day, and Monte Wolverton,

p3 President’s Award for Fitness, 2010 Edition: Joe Heller.

p3 World Toon Review: Cam Cardow (Canada), Patrick Chappatte (Switzerland), and Stephane Peray, (Thailand).

Ann Telnaes examines a punctured balloon.

Mark Fiore highlights this bit of good news: At least they don’t insult your intelligence with that silly euphemism “In the event of a water landing . . . “

You've waited long enough: Time for The Comics Curmudgeon's examination of one factor that might help you decide if you’re uncertain whether to remain a regular Oregonian reader (although I’m not sure in which direction it might tip the scales for you): “Unsettling car-based sexuality in the comics.”

Portland homeboy Jack Ohman is grateful for small miracles.

You know what? I’m happy. Now it can be told—the lost story of how Joe Lieberman financed his first Senate campaign! Directed by Tex Avery in 1949, in fabulous Droopy-Vision, here’s “Wags to Riches:”

p3 Bonus Toon: Jesse Springer examines the anatomy of a hollow threat (click to enlarge):

And if you haven’t bookmarked Slate's political cartoon for the day, now’s the time.
