Three Irresistible Funnies

By NIE

Life is about choices, it’s commonly said, but I simply cannot choose the best comic among three that caught my eye today. Here are quick comments on each.

“Those blasted horns” were vuvuzelas (voo-voo-ZAY-las), long, slender horns that nearly punctured ear drums in July at the World Cup in South Africa.


An enigma is a mystery. It comes from a Latin/Greek word meaning to speak in riddles, according to Webster’s.


Nope, fiction is definitely not a place. Webster’s states that fiction is “anything made up or imagined, as a statement, story, etc.”

As school resumes, students can expect to delve into plenty of great fiction, everything from Charlotte’s Web to To Kill a Mockingbird.

Best wishes to all students for a successful new school year!
