Editorial Cartoon: Bloomberg Soda Ban
The Cartoonist Studio Editorial Cartoon Contest continues. Click the image above or here to go to the voting. You should do a search of “Bearman” and my cartoon will come up front and center and then vote. Some people were clicking the link and then accidentally voting on the first thing that popped up. Unfortunately no way to direct link to my cartoon. In fourth place in the voting after the first entry so thanks to all who voted. Again, as long as I stay in the contest, there will be two editorial cartoons a week to vote on – Mondays and Thursdays. Oh and you can vote multiple times in each round if you want (resets every six hours) until EOD Friday.
Today’s editorial cartoon is inspired by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. His latest crusade is against the Big Gulp aka any sugary drinks (soda, pop, soft drink, coke, Hi-C….whatever you like to call it in your neck of the world) bigger than 16oz being sold in restaurants and other retail establishments. His reasoning is that those high caloric drinks contribute to obesity. Question is where does it stop? And do you seriously think it means people will drink less? Hell no, they will just go back for more refills in a restaurant or just buy two in the drive thru. Instead of super sizing for $.50 more, I can see many restaurants offering buy one get one for $.50, because people still want their vat of soft drink. What say you? Good idea or Nanny State?
