Shermin's Bilingual Flash Cards: More!

 Shermin the Vermin and U.S. Education: "Waiting for Stupid-man."

(Special thanks to Dan Schubarth for this wonderful idea. His prize will be awarded immediately: the newest addition to Shermin's vermin cast is hereby christened "Dan the Squirrel.")

Merry Christmas, Vermin!

Happy Catharsis from two new vermin: a squirrel, and (I believe) a groundhog.

If some nice reader suggested names for them, this rodent team might be back.

And, yes, I said THEY might be back. Yes, the squirrel is dead, but c'mon. It's only pixels on a screen, folks.

In the very first "Shermin the Vermin" cartoon, I depicted him after attacking a baby. I deeply regret that, and I hope today's cartoon makes up for that insensitivity, which, as I said, I deeply regret.
