Punch 32


[Click to be fashionable!]

Since it's Fashion Week in NYC, here's an appropriate cartoon. Nothing easier to make fun of than fashion excess. Note the sumptuous pillowiness of the collar, the downy richness of the dress on the right. Add in a surly Peke, and you've got winning humor.

And it doesn't hurt that an Englishman is making fun of his own nation, ceding the fashion laurels to arch-rival France.
