First picture:

Tea-partiers ask to cut government down to size.

“No, Mr. Citibank, I expect you to die!”

The White House staff sings the Internationale while attending Morgan Stanley’s briss.

“Will Lego-Man escape the clutches of the evil Toy Baron?”

Second picture:

“Hu’s down there?”

Third picture:

“We celebrate our robotic mosquito overlords!”
