Brain Issues?

crows talk about scarecrow

Maybe I’ve been watching too much Hannibal, but this just seemed like the perfect cartoon to post for casual, gory Friday.

Of course, I’m referencing The Wizard of Oz in this cartoon, and The Scarecrow character, who thinks he doesn’t have a brain, and spends the whole movie wishing for one. (Of course, he ends up being the smartest one, even without a new brain. 🙂 )

Sometimes you don’t know your true worth, right? Even when it’s right there.  Just hang in there, and follow the yellow brick road. Or a murder of crows.

Last week’s cartoon, on celebrities and movie stars,  is here, and click Like on my Facebook page to get notified of new cartoons as they get published.
