I try to be subtle in my cartoons. There are not a lot of wacky expressions or hand-waving or assorted other craziness to sell a joke. Not to say that other cartoonists don\u2019t use those things to their advantage and do it well, but I generally prefer a quiet approach. Take these two, for example. The guy on the left seems okay\u00a0with it, maybe even in a little \u2018silver linings\u2019 kind of manner. The woman on the right mostly seems curious and interested, but not worried or upset. And I think that quietness helps give the surprise from \u2018name-calling\u2019 a little extra camouflage so you don\u2019t see it coming. It\u2019s hard to know for sure, but that\u2019s my preference and my theory.
