Being a cartoonist means you\u2019re a bit of a contrarian. Take for example the phrase \u201cEasier said than done.\u201d I think we all assume that generally whatever \u201cit\u201d is that it\u2019s worth doing, even if difficult. But the cartoonist looks at that and thinks \u201cYou know what? Saying it is easier. Let\u2019s just do that.\u201d And then cartoons like this come out the other side. The \u201ctry and keep up\u201d is just comedy gravy.
