"Even when it was the bears, I knew it was the immigints!"

Hey, remember when the Herald sacked their cartoonist because of his 'anti-semitic' cartoons? It turns out that, if you're a Herald cartoonist, it's ok to be racist as long as they're brown and stealing all our jobs. Nice one, Emmerson:


Only 1% of the population may be overstayers, Emmerson, but remember: statistics show overstayers are 66% more likely to spontaneously blow up in a crowded market.

  1. I'm pleased you singled this out. I usually like Emmerson (Body is a prat) but I couldn't find any way to appreciate this. He succeeds at failing on so many levels (Sorry, flashback to my 4th form maths report card).

    Hmmm....race based fear mongering...should make the YV reading a bit more lively at least!

  3. I liked the rendering of the word "pure" in large white text. Oi Oi Oi indeed.

  4. Even when he's not plain scary, Emmerson leaves a lot to be desired, as with today's effort:

    Not a lot of entertainment or tasty satire to be had there, as Emmerson has gone for the old standby "write something on top of your drawing of something else" method and not much more.

    Body's Eskimo cartoon yesterday was not much better, and I just can't get on board with his odd drawing style either.

    Let's see what tomorrow brings...
