20. I don't suppose you really "get" the purpose behind political cartoons.

They frequently utilize humor to place a spotlight on, often catastrophically bad, social or political situations. This is Tom Tomorrow's MO, so I can imagine that you don't particularly care for his cartoons. Probably don't like Joh Stewart or Stephen Colbert either.

You'd probably be happier looking at Peanuts cartoons, but I don't think you're likely to find them on GD. I know that in the Lounge you can at least find lots of lolcats type humor, maybe more to your liking.
