INTRODUCING "ZAPIRO"...a South African icon.

GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
MAXMOM here...

Hello there dear readers!
As you know, South Africans are known for their sense of humour!
I am aware that I have many readers who are not resident to my country, so
today I'd really like to introduce you to one of our well-respected local political cartoonists:


His cartoons appear in many of our newspapers and published collections are available from book stores. 
This is his cartoon for today which calls attention to the recent fiasco regarding
FIFA SOCCER WORLD CUP ticket sales.
A range of his cartoons can be viewed online...

Do go and have a giggle!...

Very funny!
It is very interesting seeing the difference from that and our American comics.

Wow, they are running out of excuses! Humor and a soft answer can cover a multitude of wrongs.

Just heard on the news that something like 8,000 people are in holding patterns all over the sky in planes that thought they'd be able to land in the UK.

I wonder, uhm, I think I'll call my bank tomorrow and tell them that the house payment will be late because the volcanic ash was so thick I couldn't find the post office to mail the check! Do you think it will work☺
