No need to explain this very local comic that alludes to proposed city budget cuts by the Asheville City Council (and to an actual triathlon that may be affected). I mean, it already has all the editorial cartoons tropes you could ask for to point it all out: many things in it are helpfully labeled and there are generic objects and people representing larger bodies of government, business,or groups and iconic imagery to represent concepts and systems. Even so, it may be too local for general audiences, so just enjoy the funny looking people.
