Three Women in a Bar and Osama bin Laden

Last week’s cartoon was about the dating diet: a worst-case scenario, if he doesn’t call when he said he would.

3 women on the prowlOsama bin Laden was killed May 2, 2011. Today’s cartoon was originally published in Slate, and Yahoo News Cartoons for my syndicate, just a day or so after bin Laden died. As you might imagine, this is not a typical editorial cartoon, and it created a lot of controversy. That’s okay. 🙂

Of course, “datable” might be the wrong word to describe a despicable terrorist. Although for the woman here, he could have been Mr. Right. (One article says he was surprisingly tall.)

Best of luck, ladies.
