Editorial - August 15: The readers calls for comic relief

OF COURSE you read the cartoon ahead of other elements on this letters page.

Here at The Advocate we sure did with a smile, in the process of laying out, designing and proofing the copy.

Today, The Advocate is glad to welcome back to the fold a daily cartoon produced by the extremely talented Mark Lynch.

Under a weight of requests at the Coffs Harbour Rotary Cartoon Awards held at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery, Mark was asked to inject some comic relief into the pages of The Advocate.

Each day Mark's offerings are viewed by some three million commuters on German subways.

Grin Bin has garnered 52 Australian and international cartooning awards with more than seven million hits on toonpool and 6000 Facebook followers.

We hope its regular inclusion in The Advocate will crack plenty of smiles.

Also in response to our recent call on how we could improve your paper experience, readers answered en masse and I quote: "bring back the funnies", "add more humour to the newspaper", and "give us a laugh".

So we'll also throw in a joke of the day on page 2.
