In case you haven't seen the announcement, the admins have temporarily disabled image hotlinking (i.e., seeing an image from another site in DU, not just its URL) while they work on a potential security issue that could exploit it. As one of us who was here during the 2016 hack and ensuing down time, I don't mind the inconvenience at all. Go Team DU! Patch that bug!
However, I'm not going to spend 30-40 minutes compiling a bunch of raw URLs, either. So, I'm suspending my TOON posts until the issue gets sorted out.
To tide you over, below is my source list. Check them out yourselves for your daily fix.

I'd been about to put up a TOON post when Preview showed something very different from what I expected. My original post asking if others were seeing the same issue is in the excerpt box below.
EarlG explains it in #5. I've edited this post to avoid more "yup, me too" posts since we have an answer.
Anyone else seeing URLs instead of images today?
For example, below should be a Darrin Bell cartoon, but all I'm seeing at the time of this posting is a URL without the file type extension:
Just double-checking it's not just me.
A little context: the cartoonist, Dave Willis, grew up in a strict conservative evangelical household, and Joyce, the little kid/older kid/young woman in this progression is something of an alter-ego of his about how that bubble bursts for some people, and of some of the hypocrisies that manifest in the people for whom it doesn't burst.
"Another victim of the Deep State. So unfair!" the president was quoted as saying.
Riddle's representatives, Giuliani Partners LLC, have scheduled a press release for his exit from Azkaban Maximum Security Prison on Thursday.
...singing the praises of Neville Chamberlain just after Munich. I think it's actually from the 1970s, either from a London play "Happy as a Sandbag" or from an Ian Whitcomb album (and it's likely they're just different covers of the same song). It was used as the opening theme for a radio program I used to listen to back in the 80s and 90s, and is an achingly appropriate anthem for the "This Is FINE!" crowd.
National anthem at 2020 Superbowl, at his party at Mar-a-Lacky
Plays conductor, pulls his chair out to sit down halfway through, etc.
But god forbid you bow your head and take a knee.
On Edit: Original version taken down, but it lives on elsewhere (for now). I just don't like the caption. He's simply showing the true Republican spirit:
