18. Your question?
Edited on Wed Feb-18-09 12:42 PM by jberryhill
The cartoon shows a marked police car, an unmarked cruiser, and a telephone pole with a "Beware of Dog Sign"

Note the visual elements here:

That chimp was shot when it tried to enter the car, and was a top story yesterday.

The cartoonist seems to be saying that the stimulus bill is stupid.

The cartoonist obviously does not understand that the reference to the chimp shooting is obscure, and is more likely to be understood as a racist statement that a juxtaposition of two news stories.

The visual reference is to a specific chimpanzee that was shot by police based on the wire service photo.
