It is to laugh . . .
I enjoy cartoonists' takes on the events of ordinary everyday life. They seem to be able to find humor in the simplest things. Giles was perhaps the doyen of them all in that regard, and I have several dozen of his cartoon annuals to make me chuckle from time to time.
Anyway, a British artist (?), Fiona Banner, has created an 'artwork' at the Tate Gallery by suspending a Harrier jet fighter from the ceiling, in what the Daily Mail called a 'bizarre' exhibition.
The newspaper's cartoonist, Mac, was unable to resist the temptation. Click here to see what he made of it today. (Clicking will open a new tab in your browser, or a new window; close it when you're done.)
