Cartoons do not have to be funny
If you appreciate old stoves you light like this site:https://classiccampstoves.com/
You just beat me to it, so I'll only add that complaining about cartoons in an open thread is not a good look. Though arguably funnier than the actual cartoon. Yet again the medium is not the message, but but hey-ho, we are where we are. I most humbly apologise for offending the online sensibilities of a small handful of people and will desist from posting any more 'political' cartoons. Or probably non-political either. But I would love to see some Daily Mail cartoons which I'm sure are side-splitting.

And I used to love my two primus stoves (an old half-pint one and a newer 1 pint one) because they made a really satisfying roaring noise so you knew you were cooking something good.

Another planet?You're supposed to sit in your Toyota Prius, look over the top of your glasses, rub your beard, wry smile, nod sagely then drive home and throw another sustainable log on the AGA ready to brew a cup of sustainably sourced fair-trade herbal tea.You just don't fit the demographic Roy, sorry!

….or an AGA (am I missing out?).
Just for the avoidance of doubt re my original post re the cartoons. The point i was trying to make is that I just dont understand them, cant see the message assuming there is one.I cant be offended by something that i dont even understand and do not 'do' offended anyway.Am I a snowflake? Dont bother to answer.I really dont think I can be any clearer than this. Show me an 'ink blot', all I see is an ink blot. And for all of any 'message' I get from a Guardian cartoon, it may as well be an ink blot.
Its the Hartlepool one that is really the most "Planet Zod" to me.

I thought we were being promised something from the Daily Mail - this one's an up-market rag again!
I prefer the Viz jokes or the short edgy ones from Tony. My simple mind can get them.Chris.
I am in truth something of an historian, but had not heard of the Hartlepool monkey.
