Cartoons by Angela & Eli

 Concepts by Eli Goodman, illustrations by Angela Martinez 


There are currently over 450 cartoons, with many more on the way.  These are just a few of them. 


Pity these QR entities were not around in my younger days. They would have enhanced infinitely my dating skills.


Not everyone has what it takes to turn selective sportsmanship into a profit generator.

It appears that golf.jpg

It appears that golf is no more resistant to bullying than is society as a whole.

And for_edited.png

And for what it’s worth, to our knowledge, like Einstein, none of these other geniuses ever managed to figure out golf, either:

-Isaac Newton

-Galileo Galilei

-Leonardo Da Vinci

-Marie Curie

-Michael Faraday

-Thomas Edison

-Florence Nightingale

-Carl Sagan

-Jane Goodall

-Nikola Tesla

-Ben Franklin

-Nicolaus Copernicus


Sociopathy is a great survival trait for the hell-bound.


Hopefully, for sociopaths at the end of the trail, persistence will never pay off.


Even “perfection,” like everything else in life, comes with a price and must be taken in context.

Dr. G takes.jpg

But as Dr. G and others need to learn, expediency is not always the best shortcut to success. After all, as Led Zeppelin made clear, it’s “Stairway To Heaven,” not “Elevator.”

From a venerated.jpg

From a venerated textbook of medicine come these sage words: “…a diagnosis often finds itself contained ‘within a casual parenthesis’ of the patient’s history.”

Bottom line: Doctors who don’t listen don’t get it.  Fortunately, the generally oblivious Dr. G always listens.

These days.jpg

These days, anyone who survives life on earth deserves an award.

sometimes less.jpg

Sometimes less is NOT more. But then, at the end of the day… well, the day just ends, as it always does.

The current.jpg

The current presentation of MLB assaults the senses, the wallet, and logic.

Dr. Gs grandkids 2.jpg

Dr. G's grandkids will learn that chess is a good way to learn about toughness and discipline.

There is no known.jpg

There is no known cure for Dr. G’s discarding disorder, but environmentalists have made it their 2023 New Year’s obsession to find one.


Society now acknowledges that both in nature and in #politics there are more than just two ways to go.

Fascinating patients.jpg

Fascinating patients always captivate Dr. G and melt his heart.

Republican witticisms.jpg

Republican witticisms and exhortations are always on sale.

Perhaps the combination.jpg

Perhaps the combination of golf, Republicans, and money is all we need to make everything great again.

Apparently, George Strait.jpg

Apparently, George Strait misunderstood what his pal, Dr. G, tried to tell him.

Reassuring to know.jpg

Reassuring to know that occasionally Republicans will endorse— and perhaps even advance— medical science.

Let's be honest.jpg

Let’s be honest about it: the key to success in medicine, marriage, and life in general, is to sell, sell, sell!

Hard to.jpg

Hard to believe that a political party poses a bigger threat to civilization than does, say, a potential collision with an asteroid.

For the obsessive.jpg

For the obsessive and perhaps oblivious Dr. G, LEARNING NEVER ENDS— be it in medicine, marriage, golf, or the universe at large.

No question WEB.jpg

No question that golf is one of the wonders of the natural world.

It's not just WEB.jpg

It's not just we mortals who are enamored of the world of trite.

The concept.jpg

The concept that sports in the US builds character and brings us together appears to be no longer valid. Our Field of Dreams has become The Field of Schemes.

Many many.jpg

Many many years ago, a friend said to Dr. G: “Dr. G, when you figure out women, call me— COLLECT!!”


ESPN reports that Rod Serling and The Twilight Zone also plan to draft Dr. G.

No question.jpg

No question the Republican Party welcomes the two percent of Black citizens who agree that the way to go is the Republican Party’s abandonment of the social contract, in concert with the Party’s declaration of war on: the environment, women, science, vaccines, the postal service, public education, and any attempts to limit corporate greed.


Platitudes are the refuge for the intellectually lazy, but Dr. G still means well.

Dr. G's culinary.jpg

Dr. G’s culinary adventures (or misadventures) prove that nothing beats MaXXauce to either enhance or rescue one’s cooking. For flavor to the MaXX, pour it on. (

Dr. G is.jpg

Dr. G is well aware that nurses and grandkids make it imperative that we take him seriously.

Finally, after all these.jpg

Finally, after all these years, Dr. G has learned that the keys to a happy marriage are: proper spelling, enunciation, and punctuation; to keep a proper charge, and to press the right buttons. 

Republican logic dictates that all those recently-removed Confederate statues deserve comp

Republican logic dictates that all those recently-removed Confederate statues deserve company.


Reassuring to know that Dr. G is a physician with principles.

The work.jpg

The work ethic demands proper appreciation of the week’s best day.

It's obvious.jpg

It’s obvious why our remote ancestors were lean and mean.

The Republican.jpg

The Republican party’s abandonment of the social contract proves that reverse time travel is, indeed, possible.


Charles Dickens wrote extensively about the myriad societal inequities that were prevalent both in his native England and in the U.S. No doubt he would have found infinite inspiration to critique and expose the current iteration of the Republican Party— to the extent that his fountain pen might have exhausted the world’s supply of ink.

Is it possible that.jpg

Is it possible that Dr. G is the reason Bruce Lee never took up golf?

As his.jpg

As his desultory performance in the solo sport of golf proves, no one appreciates and depends more on the TEAM GAME of medicine than does Dr. G.


Perhaps the current Supreme Court might be capable of the occasional compassionate ruling, after all.

Republicans insist.jpg

Republicans insist that the rights to perpetuate pollution, corporate greed, and rivers of tears shall not be infringed.

Glorious 1.jpg

Glorious Monday here at last!! “Thank God it’s Monday!” remains the sentiment of all true “workaholics.”

Golf, like.jpg

Golf, like life, is what you make of it.

Golf reminds.jpg

Golf reminds us that not everything in life— including signs and restrictions— makes sense.


Movies and medicine have always had a strange symbiosis.


Spouses in happy marriages have learned not only how to properly listen to each other, but also how to accurately process dictation.

We can.jpg

We can appreciate how our 911 operators often feel overwhelmed.

Yet more.jpg

Yet more compelling reasons that ALL should receive the COVID-19 vaccines. 

Let us.jpg

Let us all proceed now to make OUR Earth the best one in the universe.

Our cartoon.jpg

Our cartoon world acknowledges that in our good ol’ US of A the overwhelming majority of the top physicians are Democrats.

We welcome.jpg

We welcome the matron of a new human subspecies. ChloroPhyllis and her family, the Cholorophylls of ChloroPhiladelphia, will see us through the challenges of climate change.


Will we ever have had enough of Trump, Rush, Republicans, and KRAP?

A bicycle.jpg

A bicycle mishap on July 31st caused Dr. G to sustain a shoulder injury that required surgical repair on September 24th. The artist, Angela Martinez, captures accurately the essence of Dr. G's immediate post-op recovery.

I am.jpg

I am confident that Republicans agree with Hillary’s assertion that “It Takes A Village.”

It reassures.jpg

It reassures us that even Republicans may find music, poetry, and the arts to be sources of inspiration. 

Dr. G consistantly.jpg

Dr. G has consistently been among those who advocate that all marriages can benefit from expert help.


How one poses in front of the world does, indeed, matter.

In my.jpg

In my lifetime, I feared that the election of any of these Republican presidential candidates would lead to the destruction of organized society and the social order: Goldwater, Nixon, Reagan, GW Bush, and Trump. Turns out I was right.

I propose.jpg

I propose that the ideal Democrat Party ticket for the upcoming November Presidential election should be: NIKKI HALEY & ANDREW YANG. Biden should resign and proceed to get the medical attention he requires. And Dems need to convince Haley to cross over to our side.

No matter the.jpg

No matter the age in which one lives, to sustain a marriage is always a tough assignment.

All physicians.jpg

All physicians, including the frequently oblivious Dr. G, recognize that we miss stuff unless we take time to observe the entire person.

For now.jpg

For now, the temptation to go forth in public without a mask reveals a naked contempt for public health.

My guess.jpg

My guess is that government of the wealthy, by the wealthy, for the wealthy, is not exactly what the Republican Abraham Lincoln had in mind.

Not only.jpg

Not only Republicans find endearing and infectious the President’s arrogant, self-serving, and anti-science personality.

Maybe we humans.jpg

Maybe we humans are not the only earthlings destined to infect other worlds.

A little.jpg

A little bit of Divine Inspiration never hurt anybody, including those who worship “Reaganomics.”

We rational.jpg

We rational folks don’t expect Republicans to be able to predict the future; we simply want them to minimize their manipulations of the present.


Aliens (legal and otherwise), strangers, and space cadets: we should welcome them all and pay more attention to what they may have to offer us.

Those who.jpg

Those who think vegans are always hungry are simply out of touch with reality.


Even the LONE RANGER has had difficulty to come up with the best plan to fight this outlaw virus.

Although not.jpg

Although not overtly hereditary, “Dysfunctional Unpacking & Storage Disorder” (DUSD) is still a serious entity that can unravel family dynamics.


Good soup may help sustain us, but it sure can get messy when it spills over.


Politics and wisdom may come together, after all.

The good.jpg

The good folks in places like Chad and Paraguay don’t know what they’re missing.

Republicans teach.jpg

Republicans teach us that we can always judge a society by how well it takes care of its fortunate souls.


Those who make fun of themselves will always have a job.

One could.jpg

One could argue that our world might be much better off if the current-day version of Republicans were entirely confined to the doll kingdom.

It's a scientific.jpg

It’s a scientific fact that medical mysteries are real nail biters.

My psychiatry.jpg

My psychiatry colleagues tell me that truly well rounded folks always have more than just one sports interest.

No one can.jpg

No one can possibly deny the indelibility of Republican fortitude.

We need to remind.jpg

We need to remind our Republican friends that their dreams are not of this world.

It seems.jpg

It seems that Republican logic is better suited to inspire cartoons than it is to help repair our troubled world.

We remind.jpg

We remind ourselves that for success to occur in the realms of golf and marriage, each requires total commitment.

We should.jpg

We should not let distractions overwhelm how we confront the challenges of golf, marriage, and medicine.

It's true.jpg

It’s true, boys and girls: Democrats do get sad and lonely when their Republican friends abandon them. As Shakespeare would say: If a Republican should cut a Democrat, does not the Democrat then bleed.

For what.jpg

For what it’s worth, here is how I perceive the difference between Democrats and Republicans: Democrats tend to ask lots of questions, whereas Republicans claim to have all the answers— something that truly wise folks know not to claim.

We US.jpg

We US folks really are a special people. No society in the history of our species has ever developed such a heartfelt affinity for needs of the ultra-wealthy.

Dr. G falls.jpg

Dr. G falls hard and fast, it appears. But, then, are not all of us vulnerable to the wondrous vicissitudes of romance— including especially “LOVE AT FIRST SCRIBE.”


Nurses— with heart, pulse, and voice are the ones who lead the way for the sick to heal.


Respect is such an elusive entity. I conclude that probably the only ones ever guaranteed to receive it are those who can hit well the golf ball.

Let's face it in.jpg

Let’s face it: in both golf and life, distance and perspective go a long way to keep us in the game.

Several slices.jpg

Several slices of our world seem to be excessively computer-dependent.

Nothing like a.jpg

Nothing like a day at the ballpark to give us respite from the intrusive elements and devices of modern day life.

and one.jpg

“...and one more thing,” as Columbo would say: The electronic health record will never eliminate the need for a pen.

Many of.jpg

Many of my healthcare colleagues declare that the right to bear down on patients to make them do what we tell them to do shall not be infringed.

The best.jpg

The best physicians always emphasize the importance of the thorough medical history.


Substitute the word “Plastics!”, and enjoy one of the great scenes of a movie that gets better and better as the years go by.

In both.jpg

In both sports and life, everyone should always post their goals.

My colleagues .jpg

My colleague, Dr. G, and I always thought that “The Sopranos” was must-see TV for all physicians.


Baseball folks know how precious a single can be.

Seriously, folks.jpg

Seriously folks, the collegiate term “student athlete” is deceptive. The better term should be “athletic student.” Athletics should be part of a college education; never its primary focus. In many large universities, Division 1 sports override academics, to the detriment of students and society.

Ready access.jpg

Ready access to expensive, excessive, and unnecessary health care has given me the confidence I need to proceed further with my ping pong aspirations.

Pity that.jpg

Pity that this most perfect day of the week does not get the veneration it deserves.

The breakthough.jpg

The breathtaking speed with which our Republican friends can now drive us backward is truly wondrous to behold.

I maintain.jpg

I maintain that as we get older the two things that control our lives are our bladders and our shoulders. These parts seem to give out before anything else.

Even oblivious.jpg

Even oblivious people sometimes get things right.

Republican engineers.jpg

Republican engineers assure us that we should be back to the Dark Ages in no time.

Mercifully, I did.jpg

Mercifully, I did not avail myself of Republican wisdom at the time of my own college graduation at Penn, in 1969—one year after Donald Trump’s 1968 college graduation, also at Penn.

As a congenital Democrat.jpg

As a congenital Democrat, I may not fully appreciate the challenges to incubate a Republican.


Maybe wealth accumulation is not just for the 1% after all.

We are thankful.jpg

We are thankful that our Republican friends have resurrected for us the magic of fairy tales and mythology.

Mankind knows.jpg

Mankind knows so little, obviously, about the joys and depths of the good oceanic life.

No one says.jpg

No one says it’s rocket surgery, but wound care medicine is not at all easy to master.

Please to report that.jpg

Among the few scientists who are Republican these days, there remains the belief that the trickle-down force, like the gravity force, actually exists.

I wonder if Julie.jpg

I wonder if Julie Andrews could have mastered Republican soul music.

Just the same.jpg

Just the same, I still need to work on my putting game.

The old  world.jpg

The old world, football, and Republicans— flat out perfect for each other.

All sports.jpg

All sports leagues must take seriously the Second Amendment.

This is the league.jpg

This is the league where the kids of the wealthy can learn that no sacrifice is ever needed to steal— signs, bases, or home— from the less well off.

All of us.jpg

No cure yet in sight for this prevalent, dreadful malady.

The world's most.jpg

It takes a special Dad to have a fabulous kid.

For some.jpg

For some reason, women seem to be immune to the scourge of paper cuts.

Its always great.jpg

"It's always great when a spouse makes one's life easier than it would otherwise be."

Love life.jpg

“Like life, a platitude is what you make of it.”


It appears that we men have a way to go yet.

who says.jpg

"Who says women are the only Super Heroes!"


“Who said that parenthood is all that difficult…”


"Indeed, no one should ever end up without a good pathologist."

so remote.png

"Although remote, this kid is really game."


"As an internist, I think it is important that I keep up with my dermatology colleagues."

ice cream day.jpg

"Everything in moderation-- even veggies."

Uphold constitution.jpg

"Hope I have enough energy left to also uphold high my head"

whats wrong with our world.jpg

"My Republication friends have every reason to be optimistic. No need to look further."
