Last Week Illustrated

Words to Live By

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he’s a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he’s to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry;
For having lost but once your prime,
You may forever tarry.

— To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time
Robert Herrick – 1591-1674

Armed and uparmored Antifa soldier. Don’t laugh. If he gets behind you in a crowd that will cover him with umbrellas, he’ll shoot you in the head.

Really nurse? What ways might those magic 8 be?

    Thanks for that image of that pink-haired …… um …… being.

    You wouldn’t have a couple of gallons of mind-bleach to spare, would you? I’m going to need them ……

    The day that Bill Gates decided to murder all of humanity was right here… Brussels 1999…

      they came from the future but gun ownership being illegal in EU states…

    The Fed fire and gallows was of the right spirit but hanging is much to good for them.

    • Boat Guy June 26, 2022, 6:30 AM

      It’s efficient (if done properly) visual and doesn’t violate “…cruel and unusual punishment” (which IS what they deserve). Retro without going medieval.

  • Princess Cutekitten June 25, 2022, 9:57 PM

    That’s an impressive makeup job on the pink thing, whatever she’s playing.

    • Jack June 26, 2022, 7:55 AM

      Careful with those pronouns, that lizard may be a dude.

      And what about that 450 lb glob of stinking vulgarity posing as a member of antifa in body armor that is 4 sizes to small. Always remember that if you want to put them down, shoot them in the crotch. It might kill them but if it doesn’t they will spend the remainder of their lives in a diaper with a permanent catheter and very likely in a wheel chair; completely dependent upon someone for every thing in their miserable lives.

      • Joel June 26, 2022, 10:07 AM

        “…completely dependent upon someone for every thing in their miserable lives.”

        But if you go to the trouble of shooting them, don’t you at least want them to undergo a lifestyle change?

        • TwoDogs June 26, 2022, 3:18 PM

          Yes, a change of lifestyle from the breathing to non-breathing.

  • Anonymous June 26, 2022, 1:23 AM

    Grandpa Gell-Mann is really pissed at that cartoon of Ukrainian soldiers holding up baby shields. Any moment now he’s going to write proving (hah) that it’s actually Russian soldiers doing that. His well-researched unflappable source? Same as CNN.

    Forget Ukraine, gramps, tell us all about your pre-Nam days in MK-Ultra and how LSD “freed your mind” and made you a slave to the CIA.

  • ghostsniper June 26, 2022, 4:01 AM

    I agree with Che.
    Degenerates are created from soft lifestyles.

    • james wilson June 26, 2022, 1:35 PM

      Neither Marx nor Che had any time for Africans either. One of the daughters of Marx married a shvartza only to spite him. It seems Karl was not beloved by anyone who knew him.

  • ghostsniper June 26, 2022, 6:52 AM

    Maybe abortions will no longer be wanted?

    • Jack June 26, 2022, 7:48 AM

      I don’t doubt that graph but the decline could be due to the fact that peeps is waking up to the absolute danger of creating and raising small children in a world gone wrong. I have two beautiful daughters, both of whom are single and I love them dearly, but my advice has been to seriously consider skipping the parenthood thing because of what is going on, and will never, ever stop, in the world today.

      My suggestion has about as much power as a pissants call, to duck and cover, in the midst of an F5 tornado.

  • KCK June 26, 2022, 8:02 AM

    When RushYeeHah memes itself.

    Commies and rainbow flags. That meme says a lot. Commies have no compelling state need for minorities, queer peoples, or what have you. They need workers.

    The Pelosi meme is the funniest of the whole post.

    The pamphleteer painting the flames and gallows: next thing you know the state will force social realism on all of us, and anything “fine” will be “degenerate”.

  • Dirk June 26, 2022, 8:10 AM

    Jack, after following your posts here, I think you would be a fantastic grandpa. Reconsider your advise, I get what your point is, but isn’t life is one giant risk. Being a grandpa, brings an entire new level of joy love, some of my finest joys are my grand kids! The challenge is well worth it.

    When you look into your little one’s eyes, see the wonder, the joy, it melts your heart right their. Simply put its amazing, adds to one’s quality of life.

    You sir deserve that joy.


    • Jack June 26, 2022, 4:50 PM

      Thank you for that compliment, I appreciate it more than you could know. But rather than thinking of the joy I would experience with grands, I am thinking of them and their souls. I wasn’t even aware that I was paying attention to what was going on in the US but I was attentive during the early 1960s and my concern for politics and social trends and events began during those years, (I was born in 1950).

      I’ve always paid attention and the older I get the more I become convinced that nearly every social and political trend in life, particularly going forward, is more dangerous and more likely to cause social and mental distress than anything in our past. And, unfortunately, these things are being fostered and implemented by our own government and we can’t do anything about them. The guys who frequent this site are always discussing them and everyone, though not necessarily afraid, is troubled by what goes on because as men, we are very aware of our impotence in the face of it all.

      I’m pretty certain that my two daughters, as well as my 2 step daughters and 5 nieces, never give a single thought to what is occurring in America and when I occasionally ask them if they heard ‘this’ or ‘that’, they say no and that they don’t want to hear about it, either. So, I do what papa’s do and make gentle suggestions that they should think carefully before they choose an ocean they think they want to cross but even more carefully about the boat they want to cross it in. There is no riddle in that advice.

      • Dirk June 27, 2022, 8:27 AM

        Jack, life is Good! Godbless.

        • Jack June 29, 2022, 6:49 AM

          Dirk, I understand and appreciate your optimism. Please know that.

  • Dirk June 26, 2022, 8:14 AM

    That 600 pound Ninja is something else. Never forget it take on average six pounds of pressure on a trigger, even that blobs capable.

  • Mike Anderson June 26, 2022, 9:19 AM

    Hey, hey, hey! Wait-a-minnit! I just applied my critical reading skilz to those Wonder Bread ads, and they were recommending eating EIGHT SLICES a day. Eight ways, indeed.

    • james wilson June 26, 2022, 1:22 PM

      Peel the crust and ball the slice into the size of a marble, chew. Was there a kid who didn’t do it this way?
      I’d read these 18th century stories of people living on bread and wonder how that was possible.

      • ghostsniper June 26, 2022, 2:55 PM

        At age 12 (1967) I put that ball on a hook and landed me a fat Bream from the pond across the road, filleted it out, fryed it, then slapped it between 2 wonders with some mayo.

  • John Venlet June 26, 2022, 9:32 AM

    Are you certain that Antifa fat boy is not the fat Russian General Pavel just promoted by Putin to take charge of the Ukraine military action in disguise?

    • ghostsniper June 26, 2022, 10:03 AM

      Reading that things was almost painful.
      Most of the media today writes as if they are 7th grade gurlz but that one was written by a 3rd grader. sheesh…

    • KCK June 26, 2022, 11:48 AM

      Looks like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Looks like Gen. Kutuzov, minus the eye patch and the gay white trousers.

      He does a hundred sit ups at a time, with a pizza slice in each fist. Push ups are easier with a rounded fulcrum.

  • booger June 26, 2022, 10:47 AM

    Enjoyed all the truths found in the images as I glance over at my putin peacemaker 2021 calendar. For june is the bare chested putin with a crucifix necklace.

  • jiminalaska June 26, 2022, 10:50 AM

    Memewhile up here atop the world, heating oil around five bucks a gallon, must be a way to heat with slow burning democtats without stinking up the neighborhood.

    • KCK June 26, 2022, 11:43 AM

      The combustion point of a democrat(ic) is low, and they flash.

      Unfortunately. Spit roasting? Super low heat, and turn really slowly. Taste like hell but the thermal load is nice. Might be good for feeding the hogs.

      • ghostsniper June 26, 2022, 5:28 PM

        If it has tatts, piercings, brands, or any of that nonsense there is a good chance it is diseased with hepatitis C and who knows what else. I’d eat raw roadkill first. I don’t even want to be downwind when they’re burning. And as far as feeding the hogs, only if you never plan to eat the hogs.

  • Tom Hyland June 26, 2022, 6:42 PM

    I’ve learned that “The Good Citizen” blogger, that fellow that wrote the terrific analogy of where you stand and what the view is like from the mountain top… that was Christmas day… he’s American and living in Poland. The Citizen has penned this message of SCOTUS handing back the abortion issue to the states will create a tourista empire for destinations like deep-blue New Mexico that will accommodate the idiot children who never heard of The Pill. Human population erasure will go full tilt boogie as planned. https://thegoodcitizen.substack.com/p/contraception-and-infertility-passports

    The CBRD spectacles are a nice touch.

  • Elmo June 27, 2022, 6:29 PM

    I remembered when I was a kid Wonder Bread built strong bodies 12 ways. So I did a YouTube search and discovered a 1952 ad (a year after my birth) that said 8 ways, and a “1960s” ad that said 12 ways.
    I learn something new every day.
