How to make beef kebabs

The secret life of giants - making beef kebabsPerhaps I should re-title this post as

‘How to not win the 39th annual Piracicaba International Humour cartoon competition’

Ahh, not that I’m upset. My ego is stronger than that! (just)

Boldly I decided to enter the competition (heck, it’s free and open up to the world. I had nothing to lose).  There are  5 categories, of which I entered the first category

  • Cartoon (humor with universal themes and timeless)
  • Charge (journalistic themes nowadays)
  • Caricature
  • Comic Strip
  • Theme Intolerance

Not only that, I could enter 3 cartoons, so I did (stay tuned, they’ll be coming out shortly). I even got a friend of mine to translate (below) the caption into Portuguese (that cost me a chocolate frog too). Don’t the Brazilians love their beef?  Surely, I was on a winner?

But alas no, it was not to be.  But if you are interested in seeing what the winners came up with, here are the winning cartoons from the Piracicaba International humour exhibition.

    Competitions, by their very nature, will always be subjective. Your cartoons are superb – and yes, I agree, can nudge the Far Side…… 🙂
