Satire in Cartoons
This cartoon is commenting about how much of an outcry there was from Americans when the Twinkie might be gone from the shelves, and how little outcry there is when it comes to the state of our environment. This is shown by a large crowd of people holding a sign that says "Save the Twinkie!" and only 2 people holding a sign that says "Save the Earth." One of the people is saying "we're doomed" while observing the group rioting for the Twinkie.http://politicalhumor.about.com/od/politicalcartoons/ig/Political-Cartoons/Save-the-Twinkie.htm
