The Spring of 2012 saw France heading to the polls in a vote that would determine whether the people of Gaul would re-elect President Sarkozy or replace him with his main political rival, Francois Hollande.
The incumbent President was facing a man who had never held office before, yet whose personal charisma with the voters was showing him to lead in the polls right up until polling day.
Laughzilla drew this French Presidential Elections Political Cartoon for The Daily Dose to celebrate some rare coincidences about recent Presidential election coincidences in the political history of France.
Anyone who knows their French history will notice that this comic references the Principate of Andorra, which is headed by two power-sharing heads of state, one of whom is the acting President of France.
This cartoon was contributed to the cause of the #OccupyBrieBallots movement, because the Top 1% of French Cheese Eaters should not own more than half of all the stinky cheese in France.
Once you’ve digested this digestif of laughter, be sure to stop in to
They Did What ?!?
And so it was that the American Secret Service became the center of attention, rather than staying behind the scenes, when they decided to host a party, complete with local prostitutes, when they took part in a security detail for an event in Colombia which hosted, among other guests, President Barack Obama.
The Secret Service Sex Scandal became a hot topic trending on twitter and other social networks, and was a luscious piece of red meat for media outlets. The Daily Dose commissioned Laughzilla to crystalize the affair in an illustrative #SecretServiceSexScandal comic strip.
The result was this U.S. Secret Service Sex Scandle Cartoon. What do you think of it? I’d love to hear from you.
Kofi Annan’s 6 point plan was due to go into effect with measurable goals on April 10th and April 12th. Other than silencing the guns (not entirely), there was little change on the ground in Syria.
Bashar Assad was clearly playing the diplomatic game to his strengths, namely, deceiving the international community as much as he could, and taking advantage of all the many conflicts around the globe which were distracting attention from forcing his hand to stop the war against his own people and begin real democratic reforms.
To satire this situation, Laughzilla penned this simple and powerful caricature of Mr. Annan and Mr. Assad, each issuing a different half of the cease fire order. This Annan Assad Cease Fire editorial cartoon first appeared in The Daily Dose on April 12, 2012.
Take the long way home
As the Passover holiday arrived, it left some Jews thinking about their neighbors afflicted by the tyrrany of their scornful dictator, Bashar Assad.
And so, Laughzilla penned this Hebrew or Syrians Fleeing Cartoon for The Daily Dose, in support of donating art to the #OccupyExodus movement, because the top 1% of refugees should not own more than half of all the mass migrations.
L'Chaim! L'Chaim! To Life! L'Chaim! 🙂
As the Jewish holiday of Passover arrived once again, in 2012 CE, Oy Vey thought it would be funny to recall one of the reasons the traditional meal is so well loved by so many who part take in the Seder. What magic ingredient makes it so wonderful? Four Cups of Wine.
This Happy Passover Wine editorial cartoon was drawn by Laughzilla and published on April 6, 2012.
Typical Despostic Humor
Kicking off April 2012 was the ongoing massacre in Syria at the hands of Bashar Assad’s armed forces. He made a mockery of the UN 6 Point Peace Plan by ratcheting up the pressure on his opponenets, just as he was supposed to be laying down his guns in a cease fire, to be started by a withdrawal of troops from town centers, and more. What happened instead was that he killed more Syrians, at a faster clip.
The Daily Dose thought to caricature this failure of diplomacy in the name of saving democracy, by burying democacy in a grave, with Assad standing above, giving the old April Fool’s phrase, in this Assad Accepts. April Fool’s Cartoon.
This editorial cartoon was drawn by Laughzilla and first published on April 1st, 2012.
How Assad Reads Kofi Annan's Plan
Syria’s Bashar Assad formally accepted the UN’s Peace Plan, as presented by Kofi Annan, and then he twisted its meaning to his liking.
Laughzilla took a shot at the dictator’s arsenal of political percptions with this How Assad Accepted the UN’s 6 Point Peace Plan Editorial Cartoon, originally drawn and published for The Daily Dose on March 30, 2012.
This political cartoon of the Syrian Six-Shooter was drawn from the hip to give artistic oxygen to the #OccupyNGOs movement, because the top 1% of technocrats should not control over half of international institutions of issues.
