Cartoonist for Ginger Meggs
Hyper topical! ;P
Don’t worry guys, he rose again.
Because she’s angry. How is that at all strange?
You really do love cricket, don’t you?
Steady on, mate.
But it’s so exotic!
It’s not exactly the most popular item in a kids lunchbox though, is it Mathew? Kids don’t really leave the school grounds and go to a sushi restaurant for lunch. They have their lunches packed by their parents. Ginger lives in a low socio-economic area with very little to choose from in terms of food. The character has little exposure to some of the more expensive food like read-made sushi rolls.This kind of thing isn’t just thrown into the strip without any thought… It’s written in 2019 with a lot of consideration made about what the characters do and say. Fitzzy comes from a higher socio-economic background where he may well have had the luxury of having refrigerated ready-made sushi for lunch. Ginger would never have that opportunity. His parents are scrimping and saving just to get by day-to-day.Hope this clears up your ideas about it being set in the 1990’s?
