    A City of Shasta Lake City Council member is calling for your brilliance to do a cartoon of her cartoonish style behavior.

    Oh sure. Now, all morning I've had that "cat's crotch fever" song stuck in my head like an arrow through the skull. I owe you a noogie Phil, just as soon as they let you out of that re-education camp.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for the bobblehead !

    As a current city worker I would love to post my name here – but the atmosphere there is a bit, shall we say, shaky right now.

    Sometimes it takes a good cartoonist to see the big picture!

    Funny stuff Phil !

  8. Avatar Budd Hodges says:

    Phil… Thanks for the Sunday laughs. We do have some funny stuff going around city hall and in the city council chambers of B.B. Redding's old burg. Ha! Maybe we need a fort. I know, we could call it Jones Fort. I know we'd have plenty of guns and ammo, but little on brain power.

    Your cartoons just make my Sunday morning!

  10. Avatar Wayne Campbell says:

    You nailed it, Phil. Most excellent.

  11. Avatar Greg Winters says:

    Phil, et al,

    Great idea but for a lot of us the name "Jonestown" sorta isn't funny. If you don't remember the Rev Jim Jones and Jonestown, Guyana, Google it and see.

      Either is what is happening in Redding and the rest of the country. It is very scary the times we are living in; not Jonestown scary, but close. It could mean the end of our civilization as we know AND love it.

      And the reference to don't drink the tea leads one to believe the cartoonist is keenly aware of the history Jonestown…that makes for a good, yes perhaps tasteless, gag.

  12. Avatar Phil Seymour says:

    Thanks. You made my cartoon day complete.

  13. Avatar Viki Twyman says:

    Phil…………You the man!! Fantastic cartoon!

  14. Avatar Dorothy Nethery says:

    Phil, I tell you again……you are the Jon Stewart of Redding. Too bad you do not do some stand-up comedy in town.

    • Avatar Philbert says:

      I do my best stuff sitting down. But, I will be Cartooning On The Radio again as Jim Dyar and I fill in for a vacationing Doni on her Sunday morning radio show – this coming Sunday… check your local listings.

      • Avatar Philbert says:

  15. Avatar Alvin Bradshaw says:

    Uh… hence the whole, "Don't drink the tea (Kool-Aid) gag… thanks for pointing out the connection.

  16. Avatar pmarshall says:

    Phil, I don't like tea anyway. Your cartoon is great, and you have said it all! Pictures are worth a thousand words!
