    Thanks Fred. Unfortunately, it was a very lo-res image I found on the net. I'd *love* to find an original of this to scan and reproduce. Only so much you can do with bad source material, but it's still a hoot.

    I couldn't tell you precisely, but I'd bet the farm it was a basic Google image search on just a couple of very broad terms. And, no, I'm not referring to the lady in the picture!

    Telephone rings at a Doctors residence:

    Doctor: Hello!
    Respondent: Doctor! My son has swallowed up a pencil, can you make it urgently to my place?
    Doctor: Sure, but what will you do till i come?
    Respondent: I don't know... I guess I could use a fountain pen instead.

    Have a look for The Ultimate Alphabet - 26 paintings, with lots of things beginning with the appropriate letter to find! He also has a spot the difference book.

    I like the concept of the Breaking Cat News strip. Maybe a little too cute sometimes, but what the heck.
