From the vaults, because why not

There's some scatological Rabelaisian wit for you, Treacher-style. Lol!
From WSJ's OpinionJournal top 10 sarcasm to bodily function comic strips with clever wit. My, what a range of subject-matter! Still, I prefer the creative writing of Dan Rather and the unicorn queens!
So where's the Funny? The guy in the suit clearly represents Western values, right? Okay, sure those toilets look odd, but maybe the dude in the bathrobe is from a different culture? Maybe they pee in giant carved heads in Aztlanistan or wherever those commodes derive from. Did you ever think of that, funny guy? I've seen some weird toilets in my travels, so I don't show a level of unsophistication as I have snarky thoughts about the plumbing facilities of fellow cultures. What's your excuse?
And everyone knows that the foreigners always follow us around because they want to stab us in the back and steal our freedom! They hate our freedom! Everyone knows that! What's your excuse? A justification to use more toilet humor? You are so sad. I hate you!
Do you know anything of the provenance of the orginal work? It's got to be Kirby, no?
Speaking of provenance of original work, which comic was that featuring The Flash getting impaled? I'm confused.
It just keeps gettin' funnier EVERY TIME I SEE IT.
Dave B, I don't know the source, but I don't know how it could be anyone but Kirby.
