A mother lodged a police report after her 12-year-old son’s teacher
cut his hair an hour before his PSLE oral exam.
She claimed the teacher also threatened to deduct marks from
the boy’s exam if he refused to have his hair cut.

A great way to fly

[Published on 29 Dec, 2007]
In 2007, Singapore Airlines made headlines around the world with the debut of
its double-decker Airbus 380 in October.

The biggest passenger jet ever built carries 471 passengers and SIA was the first to fly it.

The much anticipated superjumbo aircraft was delayed by about two years and
its appearance flying between Singapore and Sydney was greeted with
a blaze of publicity.

Perhaps the most-talked-about feature on board: The 12 “beyond first-class” suites
with private cabins that let couples have a double bed screened off by sliding doors
and roller blinds.

The airline had to cool things down, clarifying that, despite the big beds,
there should be no sex because the suites are neither sound-proof nor totally private.

Three complete strangers in the same colour scheme.
What are the odds?

Only 4 cm

So... there was this story in the papers that needed a cartoon:

They may not be as dramatic as falls from high places or collapsing scaffolds.
But ergonomics-related workplace health problems such as stiff necks,
strained backs and numb wrists cost Singapore a whopping $3.5 billion a year,
according to the Workplace Safety and Health Council.
To help firms get to grips with these issues, the Council launched
a set of guidelines on improving ergonomics in the workplace. 

The space given to me was 10 cm (W) by 4 cm (H).

Now, 4 cm is not much.
But I managed to use the shallowness to come up with this:

Unfortunately, the cartoon was rejected because the editors were concerned
that the readers might not get it.
