Well done The Eye for services to cartooning! Let’s have even more cartoons, cut some of the writing, nobody will notice.

I find the cartoon/text ratio pretty good…I don’t ALWAYS enjoy the cartoons (for example, the recent one about the Unpaid Intern potentially about to attempt to behead someone was as funny as raging toothache) but Celeb is consistently good.

The text can either have me hooting with laughter, or feeling suicidal as the result of reading one too many accounts of corruption, greed, bribery, hopeless architects, civil servants and health officials (sometimes all together) and so forth.

And Craig Brown is a genius.
