Read the full headline comic at The Nib.
If you’re not reading The Nib or subscribing to their newsletter, you’re missing out on headline comics like these, among other longform comics.
Here’s the article this headline is pulled from. The offending cartoon isn’t included in the piece, but it’s described like this:
