Andrzej Mleczko is a caricaturist whom I have always admired. I still remember his first cartoons and strip stories released 30 years ago. He ridiculed communism (I still wonder how it was possible they didn`t put him in jail for that) in a wonderful way.
He is devoid of any political correctness and that`s what I like most. His drawing line may look primitive but his humour is outstanding. I have found a lot of his stuff on the Net so I think it will be a long thread.
Let`s start with the picture mentioned in the quote and more pictures which reflect on the current Polish obsession of bugging, taping and spying on, started by the Terrible Twins.
For an extra charge, we have a table guaranteed not to be bugged
Once a week I have a meeting with trusted friends in a basement and then we freely ridicule the government, the Prime Minister and the President.
This is the last of the supporters so loyal to the leader
They say there is the Prime Minister inside
I talk only to journalists who went over to the dark side of the force.
I hope you will be rolling in the aisles after seeing his older stuff, the black and white cartoons, they are even better than those recent colour ones, especially his politically and morally dirty ones. hahahahahahahha
However, to understand a lot of them, you have to live in Poland and feel the context..
I used to grow rye, barley, cabbage, strawberries and beetroots and I was always in the red. Now I cultivate lobbying and I am very satisfied.

My wife writes that she is unfaithful but hopes that the truth will liberate me.
Since I met the President my social position has boosted. Congratulations. What did you talk about? Actually, it was a very short conversation. What did he tell you? Bugger off, creep!
I think I know why nobody wants to play with you.
Maybe they know sth we don`t know...
The crisis in our area is more acute than I thought before...
I am sorry but the National Health Fund doesn`t refund visits to spin doctors.

You should know that if not for sth I did during the martial law, we wouldn`t be able to talk right now, in a free, democratic Poland, son. It`s fascinating, dad. Tell me about it. Well, when they announced the curfew, I had to stay at your mother`s. We were very nervous. And I forgot sth...
Cash, not a very nice person! I feel obliged to remind you that money isn`t most important in life. I was right. Money isn`t important, health is.
This cartoons are really amazing. This guy has got a talent and sense of humour.
Don`t you think some of them are too vulgar? He was also accused of pornography. The first cartoon by Mleczko which I saw in late 1970s was very explicit. My older cousin displayed a few of them on his desk.
