An eclectic mix of some of the finer things in life - politics, sport, music, humour and God. Welcome!
This cartoon, I acknowledge, is pretty good. Particularly well drawn as well. But I personally don't rate Emmerson highly as a cartoonist. Too much of his fare is "strained" or "forced" humour, lacking subtlety or true wit. Often he requires much verbiage (or even direct labelling for identification purposes) to reinforce the humourous connection that he is attempting to imply. Is Emmerson a New Zealander? At times he appears to have a non-NZ psyche that is a bit of a worry for somebody trying to hit our funny bone. But, hey, we can't all have the same views or tastes. And I would certainly welcome more cartoons from Emmerson of today's standard.
