July 4th - Birthday Present for America!

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with a red, white, and blue book that's free? To celebrate the release of Johnny Optimism's second mega-collection, I'm giving the Kindle version away absolutely free on Friday July 3, Saturday July 4, and Sunday July 5th.


Note: before ordering, be sure the price shows as free (and not just "free for Kindle Unlimited")! Prices change at midnight, and it might take an hour or so more for the $0.00 price to show up.


You can read this immense treasury of humor on any computer, smartphone, or tablet - just download the appropriate free Kindle reading app from Amazon at this link. And reading on even a small device doesn't stink, because I fiddled around with the book's code to embed an "easy reading" mode: just turn your device sideways, tap on any page, and you'll suddenly see just one cartoon at a time at a size which won't make you go blind! Tap on the right to go to the next cartoon, or tap on the left to go backwards.

There's also a beautiful paperback edition available for just $5.99 with free Prime shipping. No respectable bathroom, coffee table, or doctor's waiting room should be without it! (And Volume One is still available too, at $5.99 for either the print or Kindle version)

A Special Favorafter downloading the book, I'd really appreciate any reviews you'd care to post on Amazon. Amazon promotes (or demotes) books based on their popularity and reviews, so it really makes a huge difference. And reviews can be short and sweet - just a sentence or two! But please don't mention politics in your reviews - Johnny's got enough problems already!

Please feel free to share this link to the free Kindle book with family, friends, on social media, or with whomever is in the hospital bed next to yours - but remember, this 4th of July freebie is only available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

Turns

Okay, it's the same set-up that I used for Wednesday's cartoon, but I couldn't resist going for this alternate punchline. Normally I'd pick one or the other, but in this case I liked them both.

Readers- You're not having a deja vu. I accidentally posted this cartoon on Wednesday for a few hours before rescheduling it back to Friday.

Memorial Day 2020

johnny optimism, medical, humor, sick, jokes, boy, wheelchair, doctors, hospital, stilton jarlsberg, memorial day

The troubles we have pale in comparison to the gifts we've been given by those who died in military service. This Memorial Day, take time to remember their lives, their deaths, and the fact that it is our shared responsibility - now and forever - to be worthy of their sacrifices.

Johnny may actually be onto something here. Until Hope arrives, just keep working on your ability to cope...and help others do the same.

When I was a small kid,  the local G.C.Murphy's store would sell living baby chicks and baby ducks to give children for Easter. Which seemed charming at the time, but now makes us wonder who the hell thought THAT was a good idea?

D’oh!!!

I missed posting a cartoon for Monday for no good reason. I think I created it, told myself “job well done,” then forgot to post it. I’ll post on Wednesday as usual, assuming my senility gets no worse!

St. Patrick's Day 2020

Okay, we missed it by a day, but that's no reason not to trot out some favorite cartoons from the vault...
