I love metaphors. I constantly use them in speech, especially when I want to make a point to my listener. I found it surprisingly hard to find many visual metaphors in magazines which tend to the more straightforward use of photographs.
I looked at quite a lot of political cartoons in the paper but I was quite often baffled by them, I think I am not that good at recognising politicians so often miss the point. My favourite ones were ones that were not using cliched ideas. This little picture appears very simple but actually illustrates the point of the article very well.
