about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #420: Why Won’t Obama Help His Own Worshipers?

(Followers of the Yazidi religion, you see, idolize Satan.)
President Obombast reached a new level of dishonesty with his announcement one week ago regarding the siege of Mt. Sanjar, where thousands of Yazidis were trapped without food or water.  He declared that the siege had been broken (by his “airstrikes”, of course) and that, therefore, the rescue mission that his critics had goaded his administration into planning was now unnecessary.  The reality was that Yazidis had been escaping from the mountain with the assistance of Kurdish forces, so that an estimated 5,000 remained thereon out of the 30,000-to-40,000 that our intelligence expected to find still there; our bloviator-in-chief evidently didn’t consider this lowered number sufficient to justify the prevention of mass murder.  Obama has always been a liar, but proclaiming that we have resolved an ongoing humanitarian crisis is on a par with what Beijing told us about the Tiananmen Square massacre 25 years ago!
