El Jueves Bounces Back

Fans of Spanish satirical magazine El Jueves will be pleased to know that its website is alive and kicking. I can't read Spanish, but I gather it received 5 million hits when the news story broke (CLICK) and its server couldn't cope. This proves yet again that the most effective form of publicity is provided by censorship. The website has also been changed at least twice in the last few days. The official notice has gone, replaced by this "Rectificamos", a cartoon so inoffensively bland that it lampoons both the rude original (CLICK) and Spanish censorship. Crown Prince Felipe as a busy bee! Mock grovel. (You need to have read my original post to appreciate this new joke.)
