Just for Kicks! (Paperback)

Curtis John


Following the success of last year's inaugural collection, this year's anthology of South Africa's best political cartoons, punctuated by a lively Soccer World Cup section, is even more hilarious. Just For Kicks! narrates the story of South Africa's epic World Cup year, when our cartooning maestros momentarily swept their criticisms under the rug to blow their vuvuzelas and sing 'shosholoza'. Corruption scandals, counterfeit currency, dodgy judges, eco-disasters, lifestyle audits, paternity scandals, tenderpreneurs and all the usual gaffes and catastrophes are momentarily sidelined by a month of deafening soccer madness. So infectious was the Ayoba! spirit that even the most vociferous of our political cartoonists allowed their cynicism a month's break. But the tournament went by in a flash and we were immediately swamped once again by a tsunami of political skullduggery, to the enormous relief of our visual jesters. Co-opting vuvuzelas and makarapas as new visual metaphors, they got back to doing what they do best: giving our errant politicians the boot.
