    Media is considered an essential service, and a cartoon is a form of media. But so is junk mail, wonder if he will apply for a small business loan?

    With the toilet paper shortage I went to buy a bidet, but they sold their last one yesterday. Plus, I couldn’t afford it.

    I was a bidet late and a dollar short.

    Puns are essential. Without them there would be no punting, no punishment, no punk, no punch, no punctuation, no punctuality and about 160 other words starting with pun.

    Two old vulture buddies have been flying from New York to Florida every winter together for years. But one year they mutually decide that they’re too old to be flapping their wings for those many hundreds of miles, and they’re going to take a commercial airplane. So they make their reservations.

    They arrive at the airport and walk up to the counter to check in. The agent, seeing that one of them has a suitcase, says ‘May I check that for you, sir?’

    The vulture replies, ‘No thank you. It’s carrion.’

    Listen here, Cartoon-Boy Preacher Man: we don’t need or want that kind of saving! Maybe we’ll tar and feather you (one feather at a time) and ride you out of town on a rail, as they did to flim-flam “artists” back in the Way Back Times!

    No pun! No mas!
