Whee! My morning is not complete without my fix of Courtoons. I’ll just have to get used to getting it 3 times a week instead of 5.
This comic reminds me: how come there’s mens rea but no womens rea? Sounds discriminatory to me. Perhaps the same wag who added the “decisis” tag to the Stair E sign should add a “rea” tag on the room labeled Mens.
Thanks Dave! My morning is bright again.
I don’t get it. Obviously something to with actus reus, but what is the guy in the picture doing?
He’s got cactus spines in his..err..posterior.
So the cactus did the actus, so to speak :)
Don’t worry, it took me a while to get it too lol
I don’t get it either. The fact that courtoons is aimed towards U.S. audience only makes this web site racist and discriminatory. We ant international jokes too
This courtoon is racist and sexually harassing.
Arguably the finest piece of art since Rembrandt wielded his brush. I am surprised that Andrew and Matthew didn’t get it. Just looking at the tagline should’ve made clear that the cactus has done something. And you don’t have to look too hard to see the thorny backside of the innocent passer-by. Or wait…maybe not so innocent. What was he doing sitting on a cactus??? Sounds like cocktus reus to me. Anyway, why is the cactus flexing its thorny branches? Also the thorns look pretty large to me. If you compare the size of the thorns sticking into the posterior, you’ll see that they’re twice in of the waist of the passer-by.
And oh yeah, we would like some international references too Dave! A lot happens in the Courts outside the US. For example, you can make a reference to the ‘trial’ of Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma. You can also show the trial of Rio Tinto executives in China and stuff like that.
And RyanL, this Courtoon is not racist. If it was then you would be president.
He’s bending over to fill up his canteen at the pool…and the cactus spiked him…
Nice to know that there is still some gas in the courtoons tank!
Ohhhh. That’s his shadow. At first, I thought he was standing on a stump impersonating a cactus or something.
I love the way the cactus is smiling, but also looking away, trying to look innocent…
I realized I forgot the copyright on this one. When I added it in, I also deleted the confusing shadows. Kiwi Lawyer knew exactly what was up. Bad cactus.
And my apologies to all of you who want international jokes—I’ll start doing some that use Latin phrases or something.
lol How far do you have to bend over to have the cactus sting you? He is already at an optimal position to draw water from the pool. But he still manages to get stung. Umm, sorry Dave, the explanation is not plausible. Looks like he was doing something else.
This is hysterical. Nice work.
