While we ponder that, let’s read the apology from the IndyStar:
“On Friday, we posted a Gary Varvel cartoon at indystar.com that offended a wide group of readers. Many of them labeled it as racist. Gary did not intend to be racially insensitive in his attempt to express his strong views about President Barack Obama’s decision to temporarily prevent the deportation of millions of immigrants living and working illegally in the United States. But we erred in publishing it.
The cartoon depicted an immigrant family climbing through a window of a white family’s home as Thanksgiving dinner was served. I was uncomfortable with the depiction when I saw it after it was posted.”
Here is the edited cartoon, and together the two images form an odd “Can you Find the Differences” game. I see only one.
“We initially decided to leave the cartoon posted to allow readers to comment and because material can never truly be eliminated once it is circulating on the web. But we are removing the cartoon from the opinion section of our website, as well as an earlier version posted on Facebook that showed one character with a mustache.”
It was the most racist mustache ever.
Suit up and take a swim. October is coming.

That right there was your quote of the day.
A GERMAN mayor has come under fire for posting a “jokey” picture of a cucumber that looks like a burka.
The picture of the Islamic burka-like cucumber was shared on social media by Mayor Simone Stein-Lücke, who oversees the municipal district of Bad Godesberg in the former West-German capital of Bonn.
The word “Gurka” was added above the picture, as a pun on the German word for cucumber “Gurke”.
Mayor Stein-Lücke said she respects every religion and did not mean to cause any offense.
She said: “I respect every religion. But I have always stressed that I am opposed to a full-face veil.
Islam has no comedic sense. None whatsoever.
I noticed something odd in the RNC logo.
Just look at the body of the guitar. Ignore the neck and the elephant. See an animal?
Maybe it’s just me. Okay, but how about this:
I’m not the only one who sees it, right? I’m being sexually harassed by Amazon!
And this cannot be a coincidence:
One is an evil, power-grabbing menace, and the other is some guy from Star Wars.
I’m tired of seeing my flag at half staff.
