Clark cockroach. 24 April, 2008
Caricature of Prime Minister, Helen Clark, whacking at a cockroach with her handbag in their tussle for survival in an apocryphal scene of the end of the planet. Refers to the comment made by Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, when she was asked to tell a joke and said 'Here's a good one. Helen Clark, former prime minister of New Zealand: her opponents have observed that in the event of a nuclear war, the two things that will emerge from the rubble are the cockroaches and Helen Clark'. Thus she made a gaffe by describing Helen Clark as 'former' PM. Presumably refers to New Zealand's anti nuclear stance. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
