Ladies and germs, welcome to the case of the amazing disappearing nameplate! Yeah, I will readily admit that this is not one of my best cartoons, continuity-wise, layout-wise or perpective-wise. In fact, it's probably one of the very worst. Still, I believe the messaged it conveys is pointed (and humorous) enough. (For those who can't tell, those two blokes in the portraits are Josef Stalin and Mao Tse-tung.) Bonus fact: the look of American ambassador Susan Rice was directly based on the photo accompanying yesterday's newspaper article in which she criticized the veto against the UNSC resolution calling for Syria's Bashar Assad to step down (albeit not quite in the same words), a first in my political cartooning career.
