Chris Muir's Cartoons - America's common man

Chris Muir can be mostly relied on to produce a laugh or two, albeit a wry one, with trenchant social relevance. In this sense, he is like R K Laxman, India's common-man cartoonist. Today's cartoon by Chris Muir is one such apt reference to current events.

Of course, he is not the first or the only fine cartoonist America has to offer. Cartoonists are like poets in various ways. They are available on almost every street-corner, appeal to the emotions rather than the intellect, and very few of them make it big. Did I mention most are almost penniless?

Ah well, it's always good to begin the day with a laugh
