Oh my gourd

Occasionally we come up with an idea for a cartoon that, while food-related and (arguably) funny, we don't file for the simple reason that it might put readers off their saturday brunch.

If we were anywhere else in the newspaper we probably wouldn't care; but knowing that our cartoon is going to print alongside photos of delicious food, we feel a certain repsonsibility not to induce queasiness.

Here's a recent cartoon we haven't submitted. It was inspired by Pascal tearing his achilles tendon while playing squash — for some reason I seem to have cast him as the doctor, and taken the more compromising role myself. Make of that what you will . . . JB
