Plenty of "Funny" or "Funniest" of just about every media, but not one it seems for old fashioned newspaper cartoons.

Found this one in an old newspaper that amused me....................

You knew this'd draw me to the thread like a moth to a lightbulb, didn't you?

Wasn't the intention - honest, but it was inevitable you'd have a peek. :D

It still makes me smile, as it appeals to my sense of humour. The bloke's face is saying "Oh, shit"

Thank you. :)

If you mean the Punch ones, that is dead in the water, what with copyright worries, even though I own all the books they were in.

If it's the postcard ones, I'll try again tomorrow. Really don't know why it wouldn't load this morning - bloody weird.

I'm a huge fan of cartoons Herc - The farside, Snoopy and all political satirist in particular. Punch, The New Yorker, Viz love it all. My whole family is big into visual arts. My daughter recently sold her first artwork and she's still at collage, so that should help the student loan. Love all visual art it seems a much richer way of communicating than texting, but then I'm bias, keep it coming.

So am I, and will try and find some more, as and when. This block of Telephonist cartoons are from 1959. A couple of them are funny, I think. Bear in mind the time period.

"still at collage" - is that a deliberate play on words, Firkin?

Not so much a funny cartoon but a genuine book.
