To TURKEY! In honour of the world's tallest man, who has apparently come here looking for love , God help him.
So I thought we could go to Turkey looking for . . . something funny in a newspaper.
What about this ?
What I really, really like about this cartoon from Cihan  is that essentially you can't see it, so they have to write out what the characters -- a donkey and a deer -- are saying to each other. If it's funny, it's funny in a rather lugubrious way. But I quite like that.
So, in answer to my own headline: yes, it is funny. Also, if you like this there are lots more brief conversations between the donkey and the deer on the site. They all have the same brand of pretty heart-rendingly bleak humour, in the best possible way. Check it out .
