  1. My favorite of all time is the wife who brings in breakfast to a grumpy husband, says “Pancales for breakfast” and smacks him across the cheek with a flapjack.

  2. I love them all Post editors, but number #5 is my favorite. The dog sitting in the toddler’s seat; beautiful. # 3 comes in close. Is it more degrading to the dog or his wife?! Could he… did he… put HER outside instead?! So refreshingly, wonderfully politically incorrect. Shameful! Thank you.

    (As soon as I clicked on these cartoons, I got a lot of ‘dog ads’ on the left and right sides. Just worth a mention.)
