101 Uses for a John Howard – The Book.
Posted by Possum Comitatus on November 22, 2007
As many of you would know, Jon Kudelka has a cracker of a website called 101 Uses for a John Howard. For those that haven’t stumbled across his political cartoonery before, you just don’t know what you’re missing.
Now it’s available in a treeware edition.
What’s really snazzy about the 101 drawings of Howard (plus an extra 10% for GST) is the accompanying commentary for each. Together, the book becomes a humorous look back over the recent Howard years and addresses a whole bag of issues that one has often forgotten about, as well as many that are simply unforgettable.
Remember the effective sacking of Ian Campbell – enviro minister?
Have use number 65 for John Howard: a Donald Trump
Think Howards political tactics are a little one dimensional?
Try use number 31: The Wedge
Or maybe if you think Howard has just hung around too long, try use number 61:a Fart in an Elevator
Then there’s one of my personal favourites, John Howard the inappropriate erection
The GST extra section contains other luminaries of the Howard government. Tony Abbott is particularly good as a contraceptive.
It’s the ultimate coffee book table for political tragics with a sense of humour and the perfect cheeky Christmas present for any Coaliton supporters or John Howard fans you might have among your friends and family.
The really good thing about the book is that it’s self published by Jon Kudelka himself – a tough ask by any stretch, let alone for a Tasmanian 😉
It’s worth buying, if not for the political history it represents, then to support a great independent political cartoonist. You can buy it through his site for the paltry sum of $23.50 delivered right to your door.
