Who needs cartoons now days

I often watch the news and enjoy movies.  But cartoons used to be where the really bizarre and over the top comments were found. 

Well maybe not anymore. I saw a great movie on the weekend – Red.

The story and the action are so out there that I would have thought it would only work in comics and cartoons. But the pulled it off really well.

Tonight I am channel hoping on tv. I saw a great comment in a cartoon:

“I am not really sure what that means but it sounds evil. Now where should I start”.

I thought to myself, “that’s the sort of comment you watch cartoons for”.

But then I turned the news and saw a real politition talking:

“He should be prosecuted to the full extent of the the law (meaningful pause) and if it means changing the law then that should not be seen as an issue”.

Who needs cartoons now. Movies can match their over the top graphics and outlandish adventures. And even cartoons can’t compete with the outlandish and extravagant humour of our modern esteemed leaders.
