Love is...

I believe this is a parody of those "Love Is" cartoons seen on posters in the London Underground:

I'm not sure what's in the London underground, but I was parodying the dreadful "Love Is.." cartoons that have been running in the States my whole life, using my Paxil bottle. Glad you liked it!

Well, when I was last in London, there were posters all over the Tube titled "love is", illustrating proper commuter behaviour with cartoons of a little boy and girl. "Love is... not leaving bags unattended/not eating smelly food/not blocking the escalators" and so on.

You're not familiar with the kitsch cartoons, then?

I can give you something for that...

I remember those god awful posters in the London Underground. If I needed anything else to cement my loathing of the world's worst city, that was it.

I also remember being stuck in weird country towns in QLD where the only cartoon in the local advertising rag was "Love is..."

The local advertising rag wasn't that murdoch that makes the Herald-Sun look like the Guardian on a good day, was it?

Naked forms without genitalia. Very disturbing.
