'Twas the day before Bedlam.

Cartoon Bedlam

There's a football game this weekend. Maybe you've heard it mentioned here and there this week. Both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are having big seasons, but to fans, Bedlam is Bedlam no matter what's happening.

And that fact never escaped the eye of Oklahoman cartoonist Jim Lange who for nearly 60 years put his thoughts on paper in the form of cartoons starring his John Q. Public character with topics ranging from state politics to national tragedies. And, on occasion, Bedlam.

Here's a look back at some of Lange's Bedlam moments:

"Today all bets are off"

"Family fight!"

"Sacked!"

"Enough of those Cowboy jokes!"

"Somebody has to lose."
