Santa meets the children of the poor

"I'd like breakfast!" says the little boy on Santa's knee. A modest request, and surely one that could be met even by poor parents. One wonders how much money these parents spend on alcohol, cigarettes, Lotto tickets, and entertainment. One should also remember that, in New Zealand, it is usually possible to grow some food in one's garden, and to keep a few chickens for eggs. The cartoon, by Malcolm Evans, is from the Manawatu Standard of December 11, 2012.
