Hurray For Humour

If you have been reading this blog for any time at all, you've probably gotten some idea of what I'm like. I hope you've learned that I

  1. am passionate about informing the world about the Sikh history of 1984
  2. love Sikhi and associated topics
  3. care deeply about the injustices and pain of people around the world
  4. will speak up about anything I think needs speaking about
  5. have a sense of humour.

This post is about the last. First, the current Sikhtoon:

This refers to the following three stories, among many more:

  1. US Airways Pilot Refuses To Fly With Three Turbanws Sikhs Onboard
  2. Project Aims To Protect Sikh Cab Drivers
  3. New York Sikh Angered By Terror Suspicions Over Turban

I like humour. I like to laugh. I enjoy Sikhtoons. Did you know that they have a contest.?All you have to do is put the best caption in the bubble and win. This is the third contest. I entered the first two and did not win. I can blame this only on the fact that the winning captions were better than my submissions. However, hope springs eternal...

If you would like to try your hand at this, here's the cartoon:

Enter the winning caption and get published on Sikhtoons.com

(and the winner gets a framed 8" X 10" version of the winning cartoon autographed with a personal message from creator of Sikhtoons.com)


Its Quite Simple!
Come up with an economic rescue plan or message from President-Elect Obama's imaginary Sikh economic advisor!
Keep it short, funny, sarcastic or ironic whichever suits your style.
The winning entry will be selected by the creator of Sikhtoons.com and published on the site after the submission deadline.
Go here to enter!

Interested in the original painting, The Scream by Ed. Here's The Scream!

And here is part of what Mr. Munsch says about it:
I was walking along a path with two friends—the sun was setting—suddenly
the sky turned blood red—I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the
fence—there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the
city—my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety—and I sensed
an infinite scream passing through nature.

BTW, I just noticed that we are coming up on the 400th post in this blog. And we'll go on and on and on...
