Cartoonist has a go at cartoonists

Cartoonist Stephan Pastis has used his newspaper comic strip Pearls Before Swine to take a very funny swipe at cartoonists who peddle what he sees as hackneyed and dated gags about subjects such as golf, henpecked husbands and "hot secretaries". Bloghorn says, feel free to voice your objections to either side of the argument in comments, below.

You can see the strip here. Thanks to Mike Lynch.

Sigh! Not another Danny Donkey scenario...

Of course some subjects are mainly funny BECAUSE they are cliched. Desert islands spring effortlessly to mind.
And I've been reliably informed that there are only seven jokes in the world anyway.
