Ha! Ha! Ha!

Are you sure of the date? The current issue featured on the Private Eye website is dated 12/19.

@moebius - the date is correct and its edition no. 1225. I took this from the print version (of Private Eye). The most recent Private Eye (at the time of commenting) is 26 December - 8 January (No. 1226).

The Private Eye website is minimal at best - it is rather old school - and does not mirror print unlike other media outlets. Their website is probably behind due to the Christmas break, too.

I'm glad that was cleared up. If the date was wrong the cartoon would no longer have been funny.
