Eight ID ‘toons that I found funny, not in any order

(Note: Yes, I am back blogging. To start with, I am simply going to post stuff of interest in a variety of genres, to catch up with my dismaying backlog. Go away for a month and everything happens. (Sigh.) Re cartoons on the intelligent design controversy: Too much of the stuff I see is off target, blandly predictable, or weakly political.
