YAHTZEE FEST

I used to be more assertive about posting "Yahtzees" (my term for when five or more cartoonists draw matching cartoons). Some of the most Yahtzee-prone cartoonists got their noses out of joint by my pointing out their similaries, and they chose to leave the site. I'm a bit less motivated to rub the noses of our loyal contributors in their similar cartoons now that some of the worst offenders escape criticism by bailing out. That said, our readers love the Yahtzees, and I get e-mails asking whether I've noticed this Yahtzee or that Yahtzee - and why don't I post them?! OK, I won't post them all, but here are some representatives from three big, recent Yahtzees.

Olympics Logo Yahtzee

The Olympics logo as the wheels on a tank is a mega-Yahtzee that we see each time the Olympics come around, particularly among the international cartoonists who prefer cartoons without words and who like to use logos and flags to complain about militarism. I must have seen a couple of dozen of these logo-tank cartoons, here are some recent ones from Julius Hansen (Denmark), Martin Sutovek (Slovakia) and Frederick Deligne (France). I've included three oldies from Dick Wright, Bob Gorrell and Patrick Chappatte.

Faucet and Pills Yahtzee

We got a lot of pills coming out of the water faucet in response to the news that traces of drugs were found in municipal water supplies. These are from John Sherffius, Gordon Campbell, Robert Ariail and Nate Beeler.

 

Castro Cigar Yahtzee

Here are a few from the Castro Cigar Mega-Yahtzee. These are from Michael Ramirez, John Deering, Gary Brookins, Arcadio Esquivel (Costa Rica) and Christo Komarnitski (Bulgaria).

That's all for now.
