SUPER BOWL XLVII HUMOR: The VI most striking Niners-Ravens cartoons come kickoff...

NINERS QB Colin Kaepernick has been busy trying to trademark his bicep smooch.

Retiring Ravens LB Ray “Deer Antler Spray” Lewis should perhaps adopt Charger great Lance Alworth’s ol’ nickname: “Bambi.”

And NFL commish Roger Goodell has traveled to the Land of Bounty Punishment with his own CTE brain-damage controversy hanging over his head.

The storylines are plentiful just minutes ahead of Super Bowl XLVII — aka Harbowl I (or if you prefer, Super ‘Baugh I) — providing the nation’s cartoonists with more fodder than you can shake a GoDaddy slapdown order at.

So here — from suspicious consumption of primo PEDs to conspicuous consumption of Locos Tacos Supreme — are the VI most striking Super Bowl XLVII cartoons:
