Many think it rude to speak in a foreign language among guests.

Google translate of 'cartoon':

a Belgian in five risk of poverty
hmm... surprising comment from someone involved in the arts.

Eye of the beholder...  There are tons of trump cartoons I think are funny but fully expected others to counter-post. 

Silly me... group think and all...

Fine, *I feel* Like political cartoons usually ain't funny. Better? ;)
Something always comes across as forced, to me. Like they are trying too hard. Desperate to be funny, if you will.
And I think you'd have a hard time finding many Posts of mine in Dutch. Still, lingua franca rules, fair enough. Yet on occasion a different language can be appropriate. Such as illustrating the point of foreign jokes about said foreign culture being foreign to others.

Edit: P.S Your translation is close enough: "One Belgian in five at risk of poverty."

But let us not choose one direction

You can always right click on an internet-image, choose to copy the adres, paste it in your post and then select it followed by pressing THE little mona Lisa. That works if you want to copy an online image.

Yeah, Elites are the same on both sides of the Berlin Wall, or the Palestinian Wall.

A Christian, a Moslem, and a Jew are locked in a bare room, each holding a knife.  They circle each other warily and with hatred.  Suddenly an atheist is thrust into the room.  They all raise their knives at him screaming "kill the infidel"!

OK, so I couldn't actually DRAW it...

A bunch of Gentiles and one Jew in a locked room.  The Gentiles commence to fighting, the Jew sells popcorn, kosher of course.

I can remember hearing that song for the first time in first grade at our xmas recital thing.. Some other kid was singing, 'i saw mommy kissing Santa Clause...' and thinking, 'That's because your mom's a WHORE! My mom would only kiss my dad!'
Funny I can still remember thinking that. I'm not sure the the term whore came to mind, but it was along those lines. I was 6 years old at the time.

Phone is duplicating things strangely..

This cartoon can be used for multiple issues, because the personalities in each box, can be applied to whatever ...

so which Hollywood square are you?
