I\u2019ve recently been teaching a few different cartooning classes at libraries and schools. It\u2019s been a lot of fun, the kids are great, and it\u2019s been a good opportunity to take a look at how I do things so I can effectively explain it. When it comes to writing, one of my suggestions is to avoid puns. Puns are the low hanging fruit of cartoon gags. They\u2019re too easy. They\u2019re lazy writing. But sometimes even I can\u2019t resist, as you can see by this cartoon. Don\u2019t tell my students, OK?
