Oz newspaper mag LC cartoon

Post by Andrew (Darby) » Sat Jun 05, 2010 11:30 am

The Australian Weekend Review magazine (this weekend) had a cartoon which is a wry take on Leonard's fan-base growth over the decades (from the seventies until now) :D 8) - I don't know if, or how long, the link below will work, as I only joined on a trial basis for 24 hours to share the cartoon with you - we'll see. ;-)

(There's a magnifier at the bottom of the page too.)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

Oh dear, burningviolin, it's on the 2nd page of the Review mag and so it looks like they've made it impossible to check it out via that link (without paying for it) - sorry about that. :( :oops:

If you wish to PM me with your email address I'll try scanning it for you, though such scans normally take lots of Kbs and take a while to be transmitted/received by email. It's worth a try though - what do you think? ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

LOLOLOL ~ Thank you, Andrew... and lifesaver Maarten! [I tried unsuccessfully through the link.]

That's hilarious and, of course, not at all what I expected... and that's what makes a joke a joke!

Hey Maarten, thank you for rescuing this cartoon for us! 8) I knew it could be viewed somehow (separated out from the link), but it was too late at night to work out how. ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew :)
