Dr Amy “Action” Acton: Back in Action

Welcome back to This Week in JPEGs, where it suddenly occurs to us that we likely have more journalistic integrity than most cable TV shows and newspapers.

Now let’s get the stupid cartoons.

Last week’s JPEG o’ the Week was Dr Amy “Action” Acton: Back in Action. That was a feel-good moment! If you have any feel-good moments you think could be JPEGable, let me know. It’s getting kinda bleak out there.

This week we celebrate Jackie Robinson Day, which was on Wednesday.

This one is pretty self-explanatory, I think. Here we see baseball legend and progenitor of the modern Civil Rights movement Jackie Robinson laying unholy siege to the apartment building in which COVID-19 has set up residence. I like to think that if #Jackie42 was around today he’d probably do something like this. God bless the man and his memory.

Here we see Jackie Robinson dunking COVID-19 from the foul line just like Michael Jordan did to a basketball at the 1988 Slam Dunk Competition. Jackie was an All-American at UCLA, you know.

I guess it goes without saying that Jackie Robinson was a sharp fella as well as being an amazing athlete, but likely few would guess that he would so easily outdo COVID-19 on the law school entrance examination. But here we are, with Jackie logging a respectable 155 while COVID-19 struggled to manage an 85.
