Oh my boots and braces, somebody please call 000 and explain to them that this is not a prank, but that I have literally split my sides hyper-chortling at this cartoon.

And I’ll tell you why.

It’s because it’s hilarious.

What we have here is a little something that we in the ‘biz like to call a “Triple Hitter”.

This is a concept that may seem alien to Southerners, who have been raised on a diet of shallow surface-level editorial cartooning where everyone is either walking into the sunset (because Mark Knight thinks he can’t draw noses. You can, Mark. You’re too hard on yourself) or everything is happening behind a dust storm (because Bruce Petty has a dark Cold War secret that he drinks to forget). While this Southern tripe may only tackle one issue at a time, the Triple Hitter takes on 3. Madness.

Let’s take a look at this Wicking offering.

Issue 1. There are many lesbians in Alice Springs. There were reports that Chinese men were searching for a lost Swedish city populated entirely by man-hungry lesbians. For more information, see the accompanying article, ‘Welcome to a town dyke Alice’.

Issue 2. Lesbians don’t shave their armpits and have monobrows.

Issue 3. Asians have wee squinty eyes and talk funny.

Served on mashed yam with a jus of ‘a clever reference to a tourism campaign that ended in 2007’, these disparate elements come together to create a truly transcendental work of art.
