Redacted cartoon

This cartoon has been redacted but we can assure you that it was very, very funny.

We were all faced with an unfamiliar word last week: redaction, the editing out of certain "sensitive" details from the newly released MPs' expenses claims.

The distinctive black rectangle was a striking visual image and, of course, a gift for cartoonists. You can see a round-up of redacted cartoons at the Bloghorn.

This one of mine didn't sell, but I didn't feel too bad about that because all I did was take an old desert-island cartoon and put a black rectangle on it in Photoshop!
