I realize that this cartoon may be difficult for some of you to understand without some background. The Cliffs Notes:
- Washington State is named after the United States' first president, George Washington.
- The state government is represented here by a caricature of George.
- There's a joke being made here that may require some knowledge of the Sonics' arena situation. It may not even be a funny joke.
- George Washington never really played basketball, but did you know that his teeth were made out of whale bone?
