8 Comments on “Funny Times September 2020 Issue”

    1. Sorry, Wes. After five years, we’ve recently discontinued the digital edition of Funny Times. Viva la print!

  1. On page 9 of your September 2020 issue, one the cartoons accompanying Joe Peabody’s article, “The Upside of Down,” depicts five humans marching across a bleak landscape, wearing what appears to be haystack costumes and carrot-like tie-on noses. Its caption is “Earth: Year 2021.”

    I am one of four readers of your delightful publication who are completely at sea about his one cartoon. Is it a reference to a TV show or game with which we are not familiar–or to something else of which we are ignorant? The age range in this group is 15 to 69. What are we missing, please?

    Thank you for your attention.

    1. You’re not ‘missing’ anything, Mark. Everyone projects their vision of The Future in different ways. This is a whimsical projection by cartoonist Liniers, who often puts a lighter spin on potentially heavy subjects.

  2. I have been a subscriber for years, and wanted to get a copy of Galactapalooza.

    But I am old and don’t know how to access it on web.

    But I was in Alaska politics for 40 years and am a hard core liberal Democrat-all my life.

    You have a great magazine.

    1. Thanks for your interest in Chris Hume’s Galactapalooza, Charles. I’ll pass your request on to the Appropriate Party and see if we can hook you up.

  3. Who drew the “Bookworms” cartoon in your Sep 2020 issue? It’s on page 19, upper right corner.

    Yes, I know the artist info is at the lower left corner, but it’s way too tiny for my poor eyes! Thanks
