Thou shalt not raid aid ships in international waters and expect people to believe the other guys started it

It turns out that the Israeli commandos had just popped in to play a quiet game of shuffleboard, then one of the passengers looked at them funny, and, well, what happens on the cruise stays on the cruise…

Happy 2010

The Australian 1/1/10

It’s going to be an Olympic year for cartoonists with a federal election coming up, and hopefully Tony Abbott will last long enough as Opposition leader to contest it, because if there is a god, Tony is His gift to political cartoonists. Thanks god.

The turkey flip

The Hobart Mercury 19/12/09

We’ve all heard about the monster turkeys being served up for Christmas in Tasmania this year, but spare a thought for the premier. The poor bastard’s got a whole freezer full that he needs us to choke down and hope the food poisoning doesn’t kick in before next March.

Perhaps the Miracle Of Christmas will kick in and everything will be fine, but Santa knows whether you’ve been good or bad no matter how much you pay your public relations department, so if I were you I’d be politely declining a slice of David’s Turkey this festive season.
