"Which five cartoons would you recommend to people to get an idea of who you are?"

"What's the World Coming To" is a gender bending Hal Roach silent comedy from 1926, predicting the state of matrimony in the year 2026.
They got a lot wrong. In the broadest sense, they're correct. Some marriages today would have been inconceivable to the audiences of 1926.
Here are some exciting stills from the movie, plus a link to see the whole thing.

@postmarketOS So is this account dead?
The town of Florence has named a park after their famous "exploding whale" incident of 50 years ago.
If only every town had an exploding mammal in their history that they could honor. Sadly, most towns do not, and are poorer for it.
The article includes a link to the YouTube video, in case you've never seen it.
Two of the links related to this artwork, if you're curious. I'm having trouble posting the third link due to length.
I found this peculiar art in The Met's collection. They were drawn by 19th century caricaturist Henry Louis Stephens.
These drawings are from a book called "The Comic Natural History". Everyone depicted was a public figure. The guy in the first illustration is H.L. Stephens himself.
I'll post the other ones I like over the next couple of days. Links in my reply to this toot.
