Mowing the lawn humor – cutting round someone on a lounger on the lawn

mowing round lounger on lawn - cartoon

Gardening cartoon about mowing the lawn – cutting round someone lying on a lounger on the lawn

Comic illustration showing a gardener cutting the grass and haviving to divert his lawn mower round someone relaxing on a lounger on the lawn.

The lawn mower in the cartoon is the type with rotary blades that create stripes on the lawn. Here the stripes bend round the obstacle on the lawn. This is part of the humour, because stripy lawns are often thought of as being very neat (to the point of obsessive neatness).
