My Brilliant Son

This is a picture of a political cartoon that #2 drew for his Reading class.  They are studying "media".  The teacher used it as an example of how a political cartoon needs to be witty and enjoyable even for those that don't share your point of view.  But, she told him that he needed to do another one.  Not sure it because she is uncomfortable with him making this point?  

I tried to post the pictures in the order I wanted to post them, but you will see the balloon first and then the whole picture.  Please disregard the handwriting and grammar and see the brilliancy of the point he is trying to make.  

If you can't read it, here is what it says, "Somehow, I don't think this works the same way as the easy button."

That is AWESOME!!! I can't believe she made him do it is a controversial issue which he made a little "comical" why is not like it is about religion!?

Actually, I found out that she wanted them to do it in class and not for homework. He refused to do another one....maybe she thought we would help him...I wish I could have thought of that! So, now I wonder if he got a zero...
