This is so hilarious, I'll just HAVE to share this on my blog, which as you know, already shows a link to you.

I love this one!!!!! You don't know how many times I want to post one of these on my Facebook page, but my too-many-sensitive-friends keep me from it...but I sure enjoy them here!!!!

I used to say I'm a "glass-half-empty" sort of person but I like the idea of just swinging a cane around. YES.

@Readers- Glad you like this one! At least part of the inspiration comes from one of my favorite comedies, the WC Fields film "It's A Gift." In a scene that always cracks me up, Fields (playing a harried store owner) tries to juggle multiple customers including the blind "Mr. Muckle."

@Stan da Man- We clearly think along similar lines!

@John Robert Mallernee (and looking at your address, let me add "Sir!" to that)- I'm delighted you like the cartoon and really appreciate your sharing it with others!

@Suzy- Yes, not everyone would understand that in its own strange way, "Johnny Optimism" actually comes from a fairly sweet and innocent place. Horrible, but fairly sweet and innocent.
