My father used to get The Enquirer when I was a 'ute.
There were two cartoon that I still remember from the late '60's. Both are sick.
1) Setting is a back porch of a home. Couple is standing at the step, carrying suitcases with travel stickers from Bombay, Peking, London, Paris, Moscow....
On the step is a bassinet with an infant's skeleton in it.
2) --- This one requires some historical background of when Buddhist monks were immolating themselves in Saigon.
Two monks are in a plaza and both have smoke and flames coming off them. One is sitting upright, the other is almost down to cinders.
There is a news camera transmitting live---"And the gasoline with Platformate is still burning."
I think B. Kliban was better know for drawing cute cats than he was for his single panel cartoons. But they were quite absurd and bizarre, and back in HS, my friends and I thought his book "Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head" was the funniest thing we had ever seen.
I forgot about my other favorite Thurber.
Steed reminds me a little of the well-remembered Melbourne cartoonist Jeff Hook. Same funny twist of language.
@marksierra might have one or two of his more translatable doodles to post. (Marksierra is also quite busy just now, so don’t worry if he isn’t posting much)
I can’t reproduce it here, but the 30-sec Bunny Theatre re-enactments of famous movies - they were hysterical, and well done!
They used to have their own site, but now I see there’s youtube, Vimeo etc.
Wiley's Non-Sequitur cartoons strike a chord with me
That scientist should know the gas is right behind him. He just needs to be patient.

One of my favorite Far Sides
Classic Patrick Cook:
My favorite illustrator Edward Gorey. From The Doubtful Guest. Wish I could post the full series but this is a sample.
The underrated Jim Unger.
Let's keep politics off this thread please. Maybe start a political humor thread?
Michael Leunig is an observational humourist. He's well-known for his Mr Curly, and his Duck cartoons.
I just like the simplicity of line and statement, prompting self-reflections.
The late Murray Ball (Footrot Flats) could capture so many random thoughts of the working farm dog:
There’s a lovely panel I’m trying to upload, a little too large to do in one hit. It’s on The Tearoom of Despair...back soon.
Nah, not gonna fit. Visit here instead and enjoy several

That blog post is also a lovely read.
I have to admit I shed a tear when I learned that Murray Ball had died. My brother and I acquired a number of the Footrot Flats cartoon books, which were published approximately annually. I drag them out for a browse from time to time ... they still make for good reading.

Thanks for the New Yorker classic Escher cartoon.
Have long admired the mind that was able to create those visual impossibilities. Puzzles based upon his art, were some of the most difficult I've done.
