Political Internet Safety (a cartoon by Boo)

One never knows what treasures will be found at the bottom of a backpack at school year's end. Not to mention, how timely they will be in relation to certain politically-related items in the news. According to Boo, he had some free time in the computer lab a few months ago, which led to the creation of this political comic strip on Internet Safety.

In case you can't read it, the pirate (upper right) says, "I am a mean nasty pirate and I think you should email someone online. I done it with me pirate crew. This girl pirate named Jill once told me if you give personal information you'll be the richest person in the 7 seas. So listen to me!!!"

Barack Obama and Martin Luther King, Jr. don't think that's such a good idea.

"Thank you, I, Barack Obama, think you shouldn't give information about your phone number to someone you met on the Internet."

Martin Luther King, Jr. agrees.  "I, Martin Luther King, agree with Mr. Obama.  It is very rude to give out personal info without your safe side adult.  One more thing, use your Netsmarts!"

And in regard to the diaper-clad baby in the upper left corner ... well, I'm not exactly sure who the "a word from this man, oh sorry" baby is supposed to be. I can, however, think of one underwear-clad politician caught in a similar such comprising position who wasn't thinking with his Netsmarts.
