Friday's Editorial Cartoon   —   Posted on January 25, 2013


1.  Define irony.

2.  Many cartoonists use different news stories in one cartoon to make a point. Which of the following best describes the irony Sean Delonas is illustrating in his cartoon?

a)  Beyonce didn't know the words to the National Anthem when she sang at the inauguration and President Obama agreed they were really hard to remember

b)  President Obama is known as a great orator but uses a teleprompter; Beyonce is a superstar who has performed live many times, but had to pre-record the National Anthem

c)  Beyonce was upset that President Obama uses a teleprompter when he talks to her because he can't remember her name
