They were used in big engines too. Mine had a pair of them. One to open and one to close.

I think that, debating whether a joke/cartoon is funny, is a fruitless endeavour.

The harm principle holds that the actions of individuals, should only be limited, to prevent harm to other individuals. John Stuart Mill articulated this principle in “On Liberty”, where he argued that
"The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others."

In June 1919, the Harvard Law Review published an article, by legal philosopher Zechariah Chafee, Jr. titled “Freedom of Speech in War Time” and it contained a version of a famous expression, spoken by an anonymous judge.
Each side takes the position of the man who was arrested for swinging his arms and hitting another in the nose, and asked the judge if he did not have a right to swing his arms in a free country.
Your right to swing your arms ends just where the other man’s nose begins.”

“John Stuart Mill's Harm Principle”

I am sure the various stimulus plans will be equally efficient and equally effective!

I apologize but I failed to mention that if there is too much of a gap between puns, we may have to gauge whether or not we did something wrong.

Wonder how many people have no idea what SteveG58 pictured??? Knowing what it is is probably a great determinant of risk from COVID-19.
