    1. In related news poor George Monopod pines for the days of flight. Looks like hes getting ready to justify a set of “round the world tours” by claiming “He has to because the technology isn’t right for his preferred mode of travel”If there is a God, he’s not green. Otherwise airships would take off

      Yes, airships…. For passenger flights…. which would take “At an average speed of 130kph, the journey from London to New York would take 43 hours…”

      Welcome to the wonderful world of stupid.
      Someone needs to tell him Arcanum was just a game.

    1. Hey, if thousands of brown babies have to starve so I can run my Prius on ethanol, that’s a price I’m willing to pay for gaia, man!

      Well, they had a chance to enjoy the benefits of colonialism but pooh poohed it.

      I’m awfully sorry, but we’ve got more important things to attend to at the moment…

    1. I would have laughed harder if that trophy had been a cooking pot.

    1. missed a frame:

      “So family oriented, so close. And so happy, always smiling.”

    1. Yet The UK’s Brown was champing at the bit to say that if democracy returned to Zimbabwe, the Brits would pump in millions of pounds of aid. If I were a British taxpayer, I’d be pretty annoyed. To quote Blackadder, they had the cash ‘seen it, stole it, spent it’.

    1. Wondermark has a very “black” sense of humour. (If you can excuse the pun)

    1. That is what you get when you kick out the intelligent (white) minority.  “Freedom fighters,” are not worth a pinch of shit.

    1. On the contrary Howzat, the lesson to be gained from the experiences of Zimbabwe (and Uganda, Germany, Russia, Fiji, Venezuala and a host of other nations) is that democracy is fragile. It is not the world’s default political position, nor is it fuure assured in ‘white’ hands. It must be defended. Constantly.

      Mao Tse Tung

    1. I am going to send this to my family in Harare. They need some humour in their lives. They tell me it is worse than we could possibly believe.
