I Am Surprised At Chinese Reaction To ‘Coronavirus Chinese Flag’ Cartoon — Low Humor Quotient.

I am NOT going to show the cartoon flag that cause such offense because I have a number of good Chinese friends and I do NOT want to offend them. But, the above cited article does show it. So, if you are curious use the link.

While I will readily confess that I have an irreverent sense of humor I did NOT see anything offensive in the cartoon. I thought it was clever, cute & funny. But, then again I am not that affected by the virus.

But, this got me thinking. Do the Chinese, in general, have a good sense of humor? And you know, I do NOT know the answer to that. The Chinese that I interact with are all very polite, cordial, hospitable and nice. But, I can’t say that I have ever seen them laugh. Yes, I have seen all the clips online of Chinese playing practical jokes — but that is all kids and it all, from what I recall, involves causing someone else some grief.

So, this begs the question. Do the Chinese have a sense of humor?

I do not know, but I will try to investigate.

How Did YOU Read Mike Luckovich “Hillary’s World” Cartoon?

How did YOU ‘read’ (i.e., interpret) this Mike Luckovich’s cartoon
which is, of course, a very clever takeoff of Andrew Wyeth’s iconic “Christina’s World” (1948)?

Deanna made a point of bringing this cartoon to my attention yesterday.

Kind of personal to her.

Christina Olson lived in Cushing, Maine and the famous (Farm) House in Wyeth’s painting is (still) in Cushing — where Wyeth used to Summer.

Deanna is from Cushing and knew Wyeth.

So ….

Christina always GOT home … though it was a struggle.

Is that WHAT Luckovich MEANT to portray?

That Hillary WILL get to the White House though it might be a struggle?

I am not sure how many others will get this …

So, what do YOU think?
