Click Cartoon for Larger Size
It seems like it was only a couple of weeks ago that HopeNChange Cartoons was celebrating our 150th follower and...hey wait! It was only a couple of weeks ago! Wow!

So now we've hit the big 200, and we want to thank all of you! Of course, becoming a "follower" is just a fun and informal way of keeping score. What counts much more is the many of you who visit daily, subscribe, leave comments, and help spread the word (and we're delighted to say that's way more than 200 people daily)!

Per the cartoon above, we just discovered that the clickable word "Share" at the top of the blog allows you to instantly and easily share the day's cartoon with friends on Facebook, Twitter, or email. In fact, if you have a "group email address" (a collection of people you like to share things with), a single click can send HopeNChange Cartoons winging their way!

HopeNChange Cartoons sells NO ads, because we're not here to make money. We're here to share ideas and laughs, to blow off a little steam, and to help build excitement and enthusiasm in conservatives. So please hit that "share" button and spread the word!

In complete sincerity, I want to thank each and every one of you for visiting this site and sharing your comments and encouragement. These are challenging political times...but the camaraderie and mutual support we share only increases the odds that we'll accomplish something wonderful in November!
-Stilton Jarlsberg, MD

Congratulations, Stilton, and THANK YOU! Your growing numbers only show that, since misery loves company, a whole lot of us are miserable in these days of Hope n' Change. We WILL accomplish something wonderful in November!!

The next six months are sure to get interesting. Glad we'll have your insights and humor to help navigate the road ahead.

Stilton, I've been a daily reader for well over a year now, and only rarely comment, but I have to tell you I thoroughly enjoy you work and look forward to seeing your daily offering. If I were a member of any of the "follower" sites, I would be an official follower. As is, I’m mostly what I think they call a “lurker”, which I think sounds a lot worse than it really is in this case!

Laughter is, indeed, the best medicine and one true measure of character is the ability to laugh in the face of adversity (even sad laughter). Thank you for providing this medicine.

The first page of the day for me is Hope N' Change. It helps me laugh about whatever I see all day in the news.

I think I'm also growing more hair. I don't know how you do it.

Readers- Great hearing from you! And Chuck, no one visiting this site is a "lurker" (unless they're filing reports with ACORN, SEIU, or Janet Napolitano).

Bob- Regarding your thick and lustrous head of hair, we can't take all the credit. The news itself is pretty hair-raising these days.

Hair-raising - HA!
It is comments like that that make it a sincere pleasure, and why so many of us keep coming back. And telling friends, who tell friends..

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Pete(Detroit)- I can imagine the emails now - "Check it out! I've found a website run by a conservative who quotes jokes from vaudeville!" (grin)

Congratulations Mr. Jarlsberg! Tonight I eat cheese in your honor!

Anonymous- "Tonight I eat cheese in your honor" sounds vaguely like something the French guards would have shouted from the castle walls to taunt King Arthur in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." However, I choose to take it as a compliment. Thanks!
