    Maybe he shouldn’t take it for a swim. I kinda like Toadie in a funny sort of way! :)

    The caption forgot to include Luddites and (il)liberals with a profound guilt complex.

    Nice pic of “Tangata Tiriti”. Fish-hook for all of the taxpayer money that they can grab.

    I like to feel that I had a small part to play in such a realistic cartoon Milky.

    Shame on you for trying to belittle the artists obvious talent.

    Shame on Blunt for masquerading as a humourist.

    I wonder if Blunt intended the inference of superiority and smugness that the Tangata Tiriti is showing by nonchalantly, yet dominantly, leaning an arm over a symbol of indigenous New Zealand – of Maori?

    Do you think, perhaps, Blunt is suggesting that Tangata Tiriti’s empathy for Maori is more about an interest in the presentation of their own image to others, in salving their own conscious, than it is about a genuine understanding and oneness with Maori?

    If so, Mikey is correct – not funny at all… But very thought provoking…

    That would be a good point to make a cartoon about, but you would need more talent than Blunt has shown to make it funny.

    I think the artist has exhibited wonderful satire Milky with his subtle juxtaposition of the hippy like fellow wearing his HUGE bone and his dirty dog shades while leaning on a tree that exemplifies the use of Gaias resources to produce the very objects that the hippy like fellow is using.

    You probably never even noticed the bulge of the cellphone in his back pocket! :)

    I think a cartoon of Lucy Lawless arriving for an anti-oil protest in a chaffeured limo would have been funnier, but I can’t draw. Cartoons have to be funny. I Can’t see Blunt putting Tom Scott out of a job any time soon.

    I think a cartoon of Loopy Lucy getting turned back at at LAX due to her burglary conviction would really be funny.

    Tom is starting to show his age with his lack of original thought and his propensity to revert to his left wing roots. However I agree he is probably the best cartoonist we have at the moment.

    Don’t like that dreadful, untalented fellow who always draws JK with a huge nose.

    Joris should look into that! :)

    We obviously have one commentator who doesn’t appreciate Blunt’s style. True, cartoons can have us in stitches but this is usually the field of say Garfield or Donald Duck.

    A political cartoonist uses the medium to convey a message & humour may or not be involved. Politicians are caricatured mercilessly but it goes with the territory & more than a few would be concerned if they weren’t featured. IMHO opinion Emerson & Tom Scott are the best currently on offer.

    Blunt in this instance puts the knife into lefty liberal apologists for Pakeha & then gives it a good twist. These wretched poseurs shuffle & waffle through their days crying into their Chardonnay about the supposed misdeeds of people who have been worm fodder for a century & a half.

    No wonder we have so many Maori living in Australia. Faced with some blonde pakeha idiot fumbling Te Reo while wearing half a beef carcase round their neck any Maori with self respect would have to move or murder the condescending arsehole for debasing their culture.

    I’m quite prepared to enjoy a cartoon poking fun at whatever attitude. There is certainly potential in the choice of subject matter. Unfortunately, not one of Blunt’s efforts that I’ve seen have made the grade.

    Like you I suspect that Toad might not be a bad sort of coot. However, I find his political opinions incredibly easy to forget.

    That’s a tough one. On balance although, with the different styles of their offerings, I don’t think that a split personality would stretch quite that far.

    More likely they are brother, cousins or perhaps, partners.

    I’ll say pass, as humour is too subjective to quantify. I could have picked a better example than ‘Garfield’ as it represents dumbed down American custard pie humour. It sufficed ,however, to demonstrate the difference between a cartoon drawn to entertain & one that is intended to provoke political debate.

    My first choice in the Dom Post is ‘Alex’ on the odd times they deign to publish it.

    I don’t get it either, it’s the sort of cartoon that appeals to a minority, usualyy those of a sociopathic bent.

    Or maybe you need a sense of humour in the first place? :P
