“Cruel” Inktober 2018

I thought at least Canadians of a certain age would get it after a beat or two. For good measure, I put a Canadian flag tag and a bouncing “Gordon” ball. I wish I had thought to put a dijon mustard stain on it and set it in a dry-cleaning shop. Anyway, others had other non-BNL interpretations, which is so great:

  • It’s a reference to Mommie Dearest, with the cruel mother and the wire hangers
  • It’s a reference to current situation with Michaëlle Jean and her position as secretary general of la Francphonie
  • It’s a reference to Pepsi
  • It’s a reference to the state of women in the US today

It’s whatever you think. Happy Inktober!
