[CARTOON] Gift Cards


Well, it's Christmas time and there is always that one person (or two) that are hard to buy for. I was thinking about that this morning in a half-groggy state when this cartoon idea hit me.

Cartoon about office budgets


If you're on Toronto city council, you get an office budget of $53,000. Recent reports of mis-spending the office budgets on limo rides, expresso machines and even bunny suits inspired the cartoon. They're coming out with new spending rules but not until spring... it's Christmas time afterall.

Cartoon about smoking in cars


In Canada, one province has already banned smoking in cars in which there are children under 18 present. But what if your kid smokes?

Cartoon about Major League Baseball



...and here I thought that the current Major League Baseball logo was a batter holding a bat. Nope, it was a syringe full of steroids!

Cartoon about fake bombs


Last year the museum in Toronto opened a new addition to the musem called "The Crystal" (pictured in the cartoon) to a fair amount of critism. Last week a Toronto art student put a fake bomb in an alley next to the city's museum as part of his "art project". Police were called in and a charity function at the museum had to be cancelled costing the charity over $100,000... and inspired a cartoon.

Cartoon about City Hall spending



This cartoon almost wrote itself. Last week a city councillor in Toronto was punished for not spending a penny of his $53,000 office budget. Instead he paid for stationary and the like with his OWN money. All this in a city that is forecast to have a 300 million dollar budget shortfall.

Cartoon about tasers



Two taser related deaths in one week prompted the question: What do you get the taser enthusiast for Christmas?

Cartoon about Global Warming





An "oldy" that I threw in with a fresh batch of cartoons for my editor in Toronto. Last week there were winter storm warnings in EVERY part of Canada with the exception of the NorthWest Territories (the land closest to the north pole). Go figure!

[CARTOON] Underage Driver



Based on a true Toronto news story in which a 14 year old was able to buy and drive a car before he crashed it. In the same week, there were reports of a person masquerading at night as a taxi driver. He would take your visa card, then hand you back a fake one. Hopefully there are no fake proctologists out there...
