Best magazine cover ever & a chimp named George

We subscribe to The Economist magazine in our household (Well, Mr.T actually reads it, and I just use it as a conversation piece to impress people at parties). When I got last week's edition, I fell in love with the cover. It was simple, moving and effective.

I also attended an event hosted by The Economist last weekend, the Saturday before the election. It was called The Art of Political Satire. It was great. Second City was performing improv comedy skits, and Kal Kallaugher, their cartoonist, reminisced about his thirty years of drawing political cartoons for The Economist. Kal even taught the whole audience how to draw our own cartoon versions of G.W. Bush. He specifically said "the ears cannot be too big", so I did just that, and this is what I ended up with.
