And here I thought it was about global warming and polar bears.

Great cartoon. It's always good to see a cool head rising above a sea of problems.
It's clearly a baseball cap made of precious inlay stones, set afloat on a low-density saucer glazed with melted marshmallows. Clearly represents some sort of homage to the Chicago Cubs. The inscription is a call for calm in Wrigleyville.
Or the fate of indigenous peoples in Alaska under Palin? (See Writing Raven and Ric Tresa)

All that panic is melting the polar ice caps....

I love it. :)
Bob, I thought it was the new "Alcatraz Theme Park" proposal.

A very rich perception.........
Oddly enough, while the caption suggests calamity, the image represents what is probably the safest, most appealing place on Earth right now.
The newest thing in affordable vacations. Float your troubles away, far, far away.
Ah! Been waiting for your next contribution, and it was worth the wait! Funny, but kind of sad. DJ down 358 at this time ...
For awhile I thought the caption was a father inside challenging women's rights at the dinner table upon learning of his daughter's pregnancy...but in total honesty, I never thought of the Cubs.
Shouldva mentioned, I thought the Cubs caption was hysterical! Thanks, guys!
After having linked the essentials of their economy to Russian markets, Iceland 's remains still provide a certain cozy, picturesque charm.
It's my dream to one day "make love" in an igloo.
You are hilarious bob!
Love it Bob-- Hilarious!
You're quickly becoming my favorite cartoonist, Bob!
How about the new "green" way to live in air conditioned comfort without the usual large carbon footprint?
Well, with live as we know it treading on thin ice, I find the image rather serene and peaceful.

"And THEN we'll draw straws to choose the first one."
This cartoon deftly serves as a feminist manifesto. The meltdown of the enslaving phallus, as illustrated by the disaster-prone igloo, informs us that the age of patriarchy will imminently be over.
