today’s toon – the slate

The incumbent mayor, Dave Formosa, took out a full page ad in the paper (he’s in again as no one opposed him). After going on at length about his many marvellous accomplishments in past term, he then said, “Also, I am very concerned and disheartened to hear that we have a ‘slate’ running in this election.” Then went on to urge PR to vote the existing council back into office.

(PS There is no party, slate, cabal or any other covert or overt conspiracy running for city council – though a few of them ARE friends, have been for years.)

YAY

What a week…

Course I shoulda done something on that, but instead got into this bizarrely verbose toon idea. Jeez. Can’t win ‘em all (if any)…
