Why is Uncle Sam labeled ‘Personal Freedom,’ you might ask. Well, given what we know about Gorrell, it’s most likely that this picture of Uncle Sam holding a newspaper comes from an earlier cartoon. But simply having Uncle Sam saying ‘Gulp’ would imply that his reaction - America’s reaction - to the proposed large soda ban is fear, rather than the more expected anger, so Gorrell scrawled ‘Personal Freedom’ to make this a ‘new’ character.
Why not just draw a new person and label them ‘Personal Freedom’? Well, it was almost Gorrell’s naptime, and then after that he’d have to make a run for Denny’s for the early bird special, and by the time he got home from that Matlock would be on, then time for bed.
Gorrell and the gang like to impose limitations on pregnant people and people of gender and sexuality minorities, and lowering the serve size of soda is a personal freedom issue?
