The Onion’s editorial cartoons have long been my favorite feature of that paper, but I never thought to investigate the brains behind them—until now. Turns out they are drawn by revered cartoonist Ward Sutton (should’ve guessed) and are such pitch-perfect parody-of-satire that I hardly know where to begin in singing their praises. Luckily, I don’t have to.
Here’s a recent one, reprinted without permission, but I hope it’s ok as long as I don’t make a habit of it.
One thought on “It's all right if it makes you feel better”
finally i can mention that these cartoons are also my favorite part of the onion. yet knowing their source is an ‘insider’ kind of deflates it a little. often while reading these things i would have second-guess whether the author knew the onion was a funny-paper. that’s good parody!
