At this dark and uncertain time, it occurred to me that some of you could probably do with something light and humorous to help keep you going.
Many years ago, before the advent of the internet, if I saw a cartoon I liked in a newspaper I would cut it out and save it, and I built up a collection of them. Just recently I digitalized them, and it is with pleasure that I bring them to you today. The Footrot Flats ones are from a New Zealand cartoonist, and the small pink puns are from the front page of the London Financial Times, which used to post them to provide a little light relief from the serious market business of the day.
My response to the one or two grouches amongst you, like Grumpy in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, who might complain “You could have been writing up another article instead of posting that nonsense – I’m not paying you for that!” is this - ”Get a life you miserable ****!”
So here we go with Maund’s collection of old newspaper cartoons which were harvested from English newspapers between about 1980 and 1995…
I hope you like them – I’m sure you will agree with me that many of them are timeless. Save them for future reference and to send to family and friends, and I have taken the password off so you can simply send them a link if you wish.
