Let’s talk science! Every organ and tissue in the body develops from stem cells, including bones, skin and even nerves. And, according to exhaustive research conducted in the week since President Bush vetoed stem cell funding, all editorial cartoons develop from just a few lines of reasoning. Plus, full-grown cartoons may tickle your funny bone, get under your skin or jangle your nerves. It’s a lab-tested fact that examples such as Justin Bilicki’s and Matt Bors’ presidential put-downs and Scott Stantis’ opposing fetal position contain potential cures for what ails the body politic.
OK, so this isn’t real science. It’s my own faith-based view of life. But I’m sure that decades of future cartoon investment will bear me out. — Joel Pett
