Pig  |  Chicago Tribune “Kidnews” 01.31.95

This cartoon made it into print only after some of the MOST annoying arguments ever had during my “Kidnews” tenure with the editor who was eventually fired and escorted out of the building by security.

He was convinced it would be “funnier” if it were not an actual pig, but rather a person who looked like a pig. And I was convinced that the actual joke hinges on it being an actual pig.

I guess I “won” (quote marks due to still being bothered by the whole confrontation eleven years later) so I stopped short of lobbying for the “F” word:

Original cartoon art available for $55.
