Tourism For Dummies


crsta11172017

This cartoon was published last week in The Costa Rica Star.

Several tourists hiking along a volcano in Costa Rica went beyond the warning signs and became stranded. Four Dutch tourists and one Costa Rican guide were caught in a rock slide after ignoring the signs. There were various injuries, including multiple bruises, a leg injury, a damaged arm, and a broken collarbone.

The complicated rescue was hampered by the terrain, cold, and rain. Fortunately for them, the volcano didn’t erupt. There have been times this year when as many as four have been erupting at once.

The only shocking information from this is that the tourists weren’t from the United States. They sound like Trump voters.

Tourists get on my nerves in Virginia. I can only imagine how aggravated you’ll become with them when they not only put their lives at risk, but also those of rescue personnel.

One of my favorite bumper stickers I’ve seen in Fredericksburg reads, “Tourists, go home. Leave your daughters.”

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through PayPal. Every $40 donation will receive a signed print (please specify which print you want or I won’t mail one). All donations will receive my eternal gratitude.

  1. Some years ago I read about a convention of volcanologists somewhere in South America. There was an optional hiking trip to a nearby volcano. It erupted during the hike and some of the scientists were killed or injured. I decided that if they could be caught by a surprise eruption, I wasn’t going to get anywhere near one of the things. (We did visit Poas in Costa Rica, but I would not get too close to Arenal if given the chance.)

    It sounds like something that 45* voters would do, but in reality 45* voters have absolutely no interest in visiting Costa Rica or any other Foreign Country, especially the ones with majority populations that are not Lily White.

    America First!! MAGA!!!!!

    That sounds a little creepy to me in light of all the sexual abuse stories recently, especially the Roy Moore one.
