Another cartoon featuring Tony Abbott, another different character model for him. Apparently other people find him difficult to caricature as well; I’m glad it’s not just me.

A lot of topical jokes slipped by while we were doing the Fouriad comics! (Future people, just click back to the previous comic and look in the annotation.) We tried to keep as close to the present as possible, though, so in panel order:

1. March in March, which despite always carrying the tagline “a march for a vote of no confidence in the Abbott government,” was dismissed as a St Patrick’s Day celebration by the Prime Minister.

2. People are buying and selling breast milk online. Martin has a certain precedent with this.

3. Mercury is, indeed, shrinking due to the cold. This type of behaviour has been well-explained in the past.
