El Jueves Update

Guillermo Torres - Cartoon detail showing Letizia Ortiz, the Royal Missus (2007)Back in July I reported on the El Jueves cartoon scandal (CLICK) and on the magazine's cheeky response (CLICK). Spanish cartoonist Guillermo Torres and El Jueves' cartoons editor Manel Fontdevila, who wrote the caption, have been fined £2,100 each for offending the Spanish royal family by depicting Prince Felipe and his wife, Letizia, in a thoroughly rude posture (CLICK if you must). Bonuses, Ed.? The publicity must be worth far more than £4,200.
