A Personal Post:: Scientology is right – We owe our existence to aliens!

Folks. I believe that Scientology has tons of potential. And I say this not because Hollywood is always right but because I have undeniable proof that I owe my existence to aliens – more specifically to two loveable aliens, who I call Mom and Dad.

Now these two aliens don’t look all that different – they’ve got two eyes, a nose, and a mouth that’s centered below the nose; they also have two hands and two feet like everyone else…yet – they must be aliens.

You know why?

  1. They get up early…and I mean the real-deal-early – at 3:30 AM. They beat me by 30 minutes!!! Only aliens could do that.
  2. My father saunters into the kitchen, effortlessly prepares one dish, and that one dish tops everything that I cook after toiling for hours. Only an alien could do that.
  3. My Mom patiently listens to me while I tell her everything that I know about the Eurozone Debt Crisis and when I am done, she tells me that Angela Merkel opposed the Eurobonds proposal made in the 24th November meeting, because she’s worried about the 2013 elections in Germany. My Mom hasn’t left her house in years, except to go to the hospital perhaps, she seldom talks to people…but she knows it all. Only an alien could have such powers.
  4. They are now old in years, in bones, and in strength; but their spirit overflows with youth – they can’t walk a lot, they tire easily, but their love for their daughter makes them cover those hundreds of miles, disregarding the discomfort and the pain. I don’t think a human could accomplish that – they really really must be aliens!

So…

Folks, believe it or not, we all owe our existence to aliens. Check out your set of aliens to confirm my discovery.

I must also tell you that I owe my absence here to the very same aliens, because they had come visiting after five long years. Now they have returned to their own planet, having left me refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to caricature the whole world!

The Caricaturist is ready to strike again! BEWARE!

Toony Pretzels Cartoon – Essentials of Asset Evaluation by Shrew and Shrewd!

Toony Pretzels by Shafali - Cartoon of a Nagging Wife and a Cheating Husband - The Shrew and the Shrewd and some Asset Evaluation

If you haven’t done your share of Asset Evaluation, here’s a quick definition to get you going.

Asset Evaluation is the process of determining the current worth of a portfolio, company, investment, or balance sheet item. (Source: Investopedia here.)

I don’t know why but this cartoon reminds me of “The Trump Card,” a twisty tale on the matters of fidelity.

And if you aren’t touchy about the issue of fidelity (or infidelity, for that matter) enjoy some cool jokes about cheating at the following links.

Cartoon/Caricature – Barack Obama lugs the debt burden across a shaky rope!

I often wonder how tough it must be to carry the burden of the mistakes made by a whole lot of other people…and then I also wonder how much tougher it must be to zip up and not blame anyone for it, because “officially” you are the one responsible for the mess and also for the cleanup!

A few months ago when the US Congress debated whether the debt ceiling should be raised, and when Standard & Poor’s slashed the credit-rating of the US from AAA to AA+, this is exactly what went through my mind…and so, when my client sent me a requirement for a caricature/cartoon around the concept, the following caricature of a harassed Barack Obama happened 🙂
