Saturday Snickers

It's Saturday, which means it's time for our weekly selection from Steven Hayward's The Week in Pictures for Power Line. 

General thought: The captions aren't compelling but cartoonists have done marvelous Nancy Pelosi caricatures this week, some positively haunting.

Movie still of the Air Cav brigadier general from Apocalypse Now, captioned:
I love the sound of liberals
crying in the morning
Cartoon of Russians Boris and Natasha from the Rocky and Bullwinkle series, in a rowboat, Boris speaks:
Iz funny how we get credit for Trump election!
Natasha responds:
Iz not funny at all!
We bribe Hillary to sell us uranium.
We no can bribe Trump.
Next we have a couple of comparisons of first ladies. In the first, photos of Michelle, Hillary, and Melania as each looked when visiting Saudi Arabia. Only the first two are wearing head scarfs. In the second, we see a rather plain Michelle dressed for a trip to the supermarket and a glamorous Melania dressed to kill, captioned:
Here's to all the fashion designers who dressed Michelle Obama and refused to dress Melania Trump.
 A roadside sign showing the following aphorism:
Puns about Communism aren't funny
unless everyone gets them
Photo of a hearse towing a brush chipper, captioned:
Apparently there's another option
Besides burial and cremation
Photo of a wok, with green plant material in it, and a stirring spoon, captioned:
Pro tip: If you stir coconut oil into your kale, it makes it easier to scrape into the trash.
Cartoon of Fred Flintstone, captioned:
We all get heavier when we get older because there's lots more information in our heads. So I'm not fat, I'm just really intelligent and my head couldn't hold any more so it started filling up the rest of me. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
