Cartoon Appreciation

I like the cartoons by John Atkinson at a blog called Wrong Hands - they have a flavour and style I enjoy, but don't find too often. Three examples, from previous years follow - but do, please, go spend a few minutes trawling through current and older offerings - lots of good stuff there.

Sonny - special message! The supplement DHEA has strong evidence supporting efficacy to treat depression. The Mayo Clinic gives it an "A" rating. DHEA is readily available over-the-counter and is inexpensive. I'd start with about 100 mg/day for a couple of weeks, then increase to 200 mg/day, IF NEEDED. At the end of six to eight weeks, lower and maintain the dosage to 25 mg/day.

From Mayo:
"To treat depression, 5-450 milligrams of DHEA has been taken by mouth daily for up to six weeks, alone or in addition to antidepressants. DHEA has been taken by mouth starting at a dose of 100 milligrams up to 500 milligrams daily for eight weeks (increasing by 100 milligrams each week)."

A special gift these cartoonists possess and share with us. Atkinson is wry and dry! I like his "spoilers"..."Pictogrammar" is LOL, too. I quickly searched for DOB, but nothing on the net. There's a semblance of Edward Gorey in some of his drawings.

mike ~ I see what you mean about Edward Gorey - though Gorey's art was more finely detailed and precise, Atkinson's is simple (none the worse for that!)

Spoilers are fun, yes. I like the "anatomy of....." ones too. :-)

Funny! This morning I dreamed I'd accepted a new job but was alarmed to discover I'd be typing on an old-fashioned thingamajig ~ more sophisticated than a typewriter but not as sophisticated as the computer I now use.:) We watched the movie, "Disconnect" last night, so maybe that's why.

It reminded me of the movie "Crash" only it centers on technology and how it connects (or disconnects) us:

Maybe you've already seen it?

LB ~ I thought we'd seen "Disconnect" as I read your comment, but in reading more about it (thanks for link) I don't think we have seen it. These single word movie titles can easily become muddled - I was probably thinking of "Divergent". :-/

We have seen the 2004 "Crash" - good one.

I enjoyed those old steam typewriters - could hammer away at breakneck (or breakfinger) speed, get a nice rhythm going with the tap-tap-tap-tap---slam..ting -(new line)..tap-tap-tap-tap I'm slower on the computer keyboard. :-)
