Gone, and somewhat forgotten

Back in the days when we had a lion TAMER,
when the circus had no strictures to APPLY,
the tamer told the lion his bum to SHUNT;
the lion responded with a shrug and a HUMPH.

1938 Cartoon by Jorge Délano Frederick that motivated the burning of issue No. 285 of Topaze, a Chilean satirical magazine. For the full details behind this very political cartoon, check out this page. Now that the political aspect has gone into the pages of history, the cartoon suits my DQP’s purpose well.
