BESOS FOR BEZOS? The nation’s cartoonists take on The Washington Post sale.

CHECKING, checking...

OK, has every last man, woman and pundit here at The Post finally weighed in on the paper’s shocker of a sale to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos? Any more kissing and moaning, gnashing of teeth or cashing in of stock options?

We’ll wait...

OK, good. Now, has every last prose humorist gotten a whack? The Onion has reassigned our Bob “Follow the Skiploader” Woodward, natch; the Borowitz Report has mined one of the more popular comic tacks (user error); and the tweeted Amazon Prime one-liners are finally as exhausted as birds toting a low-flying Fail Whale.

OK, at last: Guys, bring in the sketch artists...

Some of the nation’s editorial cartoonists are delivering thoughtful takes on this week’s announcement, even as they flaunt their own creative net worth. So without ado — and to tide us over till Friend of the Blog Gene Weingarten surely weaves the Bezos sale into an extended “Barney & Clyde” story arc (sort of a natural fit, no?) — here’s how the nib-puncturing visual satirists are drawing up the deeds:
