  1. There was one . . . Two convicts in a cell and talking about their past escapades. One say, “And so after years of planning, I aimed the note and handed him the gun.”

    Don’t know why that came to mind overnight.

  2. I love them all Post editors, but still have a couple of favorites. In #6 down by Bill Yates, I love what the husband is saying, and his wife’s facial expression. Priceless! In #7, the complaining about the $23 cost? Wonderful. My 2nd favorite here is #4 by Radi. What about the dog? I can hear those nails scratching the window even with all the barking. Terrible pet parents.

    #1 favorite here is #2 by Harry Lyons. It’s definitely the most degrading and embarrassing! The front end of the car looks snarling and furious, unless it’s my imagination. I hear ‘Holiday Road’ by Lindsey Buckingham. Anyone else?
