Surrealism cartoon
Salvador Dali cartoon: Lobster Telephone

Cartoon showing surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s Lobster Telephone – and his less well known Shrimp Cell Phone (or in Britain, Shrimp Mobile Phone)

Dali’s Lobster Telephone is also titled Aphrodisiac Telephone
The joke of course is that a shrimp is to a lobster as a cell phone is to a landline phone (especially an old fashioned one as in Dali’s lobster phone)
Just to clarify things – I made the shrimp phone up

Rene Magritte cartoon parody

Rene Magritte parody of the Son of Man

Magritte pastiche
Rene Magritte cartoon parody of The Son of Man (French: Le fils de l’homme)
The image shows a banker with a coin in front of his face based on the Magritte image of a man with an apple in front of his face

The idea behind this image is that bankers (and others in the finance industry) see only money and profit. This is implied by the coin that is floating in front of the face of the banker, blocking his perception of anything else but money

A comment on finance, capitalism, priorities

The £ sign on the coin can be changed to any other currency
