You might be forgiven for not immediately appreciating the reference, but this is a bastardized rehashing of what is arguably Norway’s most famous artwork, Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’.
And, in case you wondered if the Sunday Times has a history of this kind of close-to-the-bone cartoon commentary, here’s a Huffington Post link referring to another controversial picture.
I’ll be adding a poll to see what the consensus is on this, I’m curious to see how this is received by the blogging community.
In my (and the Google+ community's) opinion, the cartoons add nothing in value, they only serve to draw the eye and invoke column inches and, in turn, money to another Murdoch-owned publication.
I would be interested to hear if someone took a more positive message from these though. Perhaps some appreciate these, seeing it as a positive step against increasing censorship in the name of political correctness?
