"This Might Be Satire" - Propagandhi, 1994
I didn't hear about this story until late this afternoon, when John and I were waiting at the Manor Hospital's outpatient area for an appointment with his surgeon. (His latest MRI looks pretty good - and any residual neck/shoulder pain is due to scar tissue from January's surgery and should resolve itself over the next two or three months. Fingers crossed!) John showed me a newspaper article about this cover on the latest edition of "The New Yorker".
Here's the BBC's take...as well as the thoughts of a columnist from the "Guardian" newspaper.
I also didn't really get the fist-bumping reference. But here's where I got my explanation - from the "Washington Post".
I've always been a big fan of "The New Yorker"...and their famous cartoons. But they've gone to far this time - in the name of satire.
To me, this isn't satire at all. It's offensive. And it's playing right into the hands of conservative Republicans.
