'You Busy Saturday Night?'

Dessins, October 1993

In the field of cartooning, there are a few scenarios that the skilful (or lazy) cartoonist can re-use almost infinitely, just by changing the caption. This is one such drawing... a man and a woman are stranded mysteriously on an uncharted desert island, and the man cheerfully says something dumb to his maroon-mate. There are so many inane captions one could affix to this. For example, the text could be changed to read, "Come here often?" and it's almost like you have a whole new cartoon. Perhaps Ziggy employs this trick best of all. Who among us does not look forward to seeing the cartoons when Ziggy is either talking to his reflection in the mirror, staring down a weird vending machine, or being insulted by his psychiatrist?
