This was sent in by a reader. I find this absolutely amazing, having read many political cartoons by various artists, and with some knowledge of the history of political cartooning going back to the 18th century. I had no idea that octopodae were so predominantly used as a symbol. But they work so well for many purposes, sadly all of them nefarious. I could state that I discourage the misuse of the wonderful octopus, but really? historically, these images are so cool. The fact that someone has set up an entire blog dedicated to these images is fantastic! So check out the collected work over at Vulgar Army! And enjoy your Tuesday.
