Peter Nicholson, The Australian

‘s political cartoonist, is branching out into internet animations. His
latest ‘toon, on the selection process for the new Pope, runs for just
over a minute – you can watch it by clicking on the image (right).

If it’s a slow day at the office you might also want to look up some of the other Nicholson animations on his website

. There’s an amusing one on Charles and Camilla’s wedding night (here

), but you’ll need to be careful – it contains loud grunting and pillow
talk that could soon have workmates crowding around your screen and
draw attention to the fact that: a) you’re not working on that very
imporant document which must be finished by the end of the day, and b)
you’re the sort of frivolous person who likes watching the animated
frolicking of middle-aged Royals.
