It seems just about every weblog I visit these days has something to say about the whole religious cartoon thing featuring that guy whats-his-name, whoever he is. Apparently something or other happened somewhere, which caused some other things to happen in some kind of fashion, and various people got upset and did things that are generally considered unacceptable, which made some other people upset. War ensued, or will ensue. Of this part I am uncertain.
Anyway, I suppose I need to have something to say about it too, so here goes my opinion on the subject:
Cartoons are drawing things that some people can make and that have little bubbles and things on them that are supposed to represent speech. Some people even use computers to make cartoons. Some people even use cartoons to get their jollies, and some people use them for satire. Sometimes cartoons can be in colour. An example of an actual cartoon can be found here. Cartoons are sometimes also called comics, although these might also be entirely different things - I am uncertain. you should ask someone who knows about this stuff.
