Today’s comic was a little later than usual, just because we had to do something for events that unfolded today – the death of Bill Leak. You know, the guy who compared queer people to the Nazis (who, as you may recall, were a group that actually rounded up and mass murdered us queer people). His justification for it was, naturally, exactly the same as Martin’s in panel two of today’s strip.
Last year, I said that 2017 had better do something to make up for the celebrity deaths in 2016. Well, it’s delivering.
Wearing US President masks to commit bank robberies is still a concept with cultural currency, right?
Anyway, for those of you outside of Australia, this article explains the specific incident that sparked this comic, with an appropriate degree of vitriol and a link to the inimitable Charlie Pickering‘s take on the whole thing.
