Presumably the fact that Satan has dislocated his shoulder is why Jesus is so confident in the originally picture.

Jesus knows the stretch and lift properly so he doesn't dislocate his shoulder while arm wrestling.

Regarding that Ted Talk one a page back..good grief, that has to be one of the least appealing-looking cartooning styles I've ever seen.  The people look deformed or something.  I mean, I know it's a comic, it's not supposed to have people looking completely realistic, but they don't have to look hideous.

Even though this is Garrison, and I love Garrison, this is too mean spirited to be in the Best Cartoons:

I think he's literally just celebrating his death.

Yeah, Trump hated McCain (even though McCain voted with Trump most of the time), so Garrison hates McCain. Pretty simple.

I love it how he accuses McCain of being a 'songbird' as a POW when his idol got 5 deferments.

In general Twitter's reaction to his passing has been awful.

The right wing is celebrating their own former presidential candidate's death, and the Green portion is not any better.

John McCain's career (both political and military) is the definition of "on the other hand".

On the one hand, he graduated 894th of 899 from his class at West Point and was generally regarded as a fuck-up aboard ship; on the other hand, he behaved more heroically than anyone had a right to ask when he was captured by the North Vietnamese.

On the one hand, he did McCain-Feingold; on the other hand, he voted for every GOP tax-cuts-for-the-rich bill.

On the one hand, he opposed torture; on the other hand, he pushed US participation in illegal, illegitimate wars.

On the one hand, he treated matters like Rove's "illegitimate black child" push polling, the "Obama is a Muslim!" issue, and Trump's "people who weren't captured" with dignity; on the other hand, he mostly voted with Bush and Trump.

And so on, and so on...

The Australian Herald Sun (local Murdoch rag) cartoonist, Mark Knight, claims not to know why African Americans are upset and can't see why people say that it's racist.

Here are some of his previous offerings.

The Serena Williams cartoon is racist as fuck, no doubt about that.  Though, she did throw a childish temper tantrum when she got caught out, from what I've read.  Still being a positive role model for young girls everywhere...and people wonder why I think we shouldn't even broadcast sporting events locally.

Except she didn't actually get coached.  It was just something that happens all the time.  This ump decided to make it an issue and shame her for something he thought he heard.

Ironbite-once again the world of tennis can't stand that it's top player is a black woman.

This incident has many levels.

Serena didn't apparently do anything wrong during the game.

Naomi Osaka was just better than Serena and would have won the game even without that referee doing his stunts. She earned her victory and the way she was treated is disgusting.

The referee wrongly punished Serena and has been known for making questionable or wrong punishments even before this.

Serena is a sore loser. People may not be aware because she loses so damn rarely.

The crowd treated Osaka poorly and she deserved better.

Much of the reactions to Serena's tantrum has been tainted with racism and misogynism. Similar tantrums from white-male players are discussed in a completely different tone and they are merely seen as "outspoken" or defending themselves by being assertive while a black woman who acts similarly does not get a similar overly positive twist on the events.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Funnily enough you can draw Serena Williams without making her look like a minstrel in a tutu:
