1983: A reminder from the cold war

The artist hasn’t understood the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction (neatly summarised as MAD.) In this imaginary scenario the incoming nuclear warheads would already have blown the speaker to smithereens before he could view ‘ours’ winging their way to Moscow etc.

1991: Nursery Rhyme Brought Up to Date

In the initial story she was the woman who lived in a shoe, who had so many children she didn’t know what to do. In the modern version she knew exactly what to do. She is going to trade up to a multi storey Wellington Boot! That way all her children would have a room of their own.

I imagine that athlete’s foot was supposed to represent rising damp.

We've had that one!

Very good, though. Keep posting them.

1983: Modern Art once again

Here the cartoonist is implying that the museum is inviting the public to ‘create’ works of art by throwing away their litter. This debunking of modern art has been a consistent theme in the pages of Punch since the early Victorian days.

I applaud modern artists.

They have found an easy way to make money.

It's the people who buy their rubbish who need their heads examining!

1982: Courtesy in Hell

The mediaeval depictions of Hell never envisaged this degree of polite reasoning.

1991: Right to bear arms

This surely is an American joke. The point appears to be that Tel is focussing on the word ‘hunting’ and is ignoring the word that precedes it.
