A Nigel Farage Cartoon Containing Some 17th Century Vulgarity

Another cartoon rejected by Private Eye. The verse is from 'A Satyr on Charles II' by John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester. And, yes, they did use language like that back in the 1600s.
Following it is a video of the drawing process along with my usual stream of consciousness waffling.

  1. Utterly Refreshing!

    I want you to know that I found you refreshing because I'm a major History Buff and I know even that excuse me here which I believe you will the word "Fuck" was I believe all the way back to the 14th Century and after the plague occurred so many died that the King demanded "Fornification Under the Command of the KING" The word isn't even a bad word if you know history. I am a major Animal Lover because, they give "unconditional" love. Something so little in our society have a clue about, how about "compassion".

    I am also very into "energy channeling" and believe some of us are meant to "connect" and I don't judge and I like being unique and those who are "unique", you are not a bore and how about this one "it scares the hell out of me the amount of people who are so brainwashed by the churches". I don't mind anyone going if it makes you feel better or various beliefs, but what was done to me was horrendous. Can we say even "Kidnapping, attempted brain washing and so much more outrageous and movie like, well anyway I don't want to go on where you are saying "oh gee what a winner here".

    I wish you well and good health and happiness.
