Text: “Show Thank.” War and Peas.

Some elements of this text to consider:

  • Four panel cartoons follow a fairly common structure – a build up in the first three and a dramatic turn in the last panel.
  • The humor derived from how the birds’ good intentions end up in the fourth panel.
  • The quite graphic depiction of the aftermath in the last panel. The greenish color adds to the impact.
  • This style of humor is not for everyone and the cartoonist has made the conscious choice to make the text a little bit edgy.
