Today’s Free Comic Relief from the Left

In the Annals of Ridiculous Headlines and Fake News, this one may be the all time winner:

Dan Rather Creates Graphic Novel To Unite Us

In March 2019, First Second Books launched a new line of political graphic novels, World Citizen Comics, to bring in names such as Dan RatherSeth AbramsonJennifer L. Pozner, and more.

This New Republic headline is funny just because it is:

Why Movie Car Chases Always Crash Through Fruit Stands

Of all the car-chase clichés, none is more durable than the exploding fruit-stand scene. You know the one: Our sideburned hero is powersliding his ’71 Coronet through the old city of Marrakesh in pursuit of some baddies in a Hilux, when BLAMMO—he turns a corner and runs sideways through a vendor’s cart, turning pomegranates into compost. . . the exploding fruit cart is celluloid gold: Its contents are cheap, it makes a big mess, and it doesn’t bitch about reshoots.
