tae kwon do

Here's another toon from my days at Berkeley, working with whoever it was that had some good ideas. I mentioned him in one of my posts awhile ago. This caught my eye as I was going through my archives because, as it turns out, I am now very into Tae Kwon Do!! Go figure!
This drawing is my imitation of a New Yorker cartoon, kind of nondescript. You have to look deep to get the humor. The punch line is in the sign in the window. I hope you can read it. If you can't, let me know.
An interesting sidebar here: UC Berkeley is host to the oldest Tae Kwon Do tournament in the United States. It started in 1973. That is just about the same time that Tae Kwon Do spread outside Korea!! Oh, was also about the time I was at UC Berkeley!! If I had gotten into it back then, instead of 8 years ago, I would be an uber-experienced grand master by now. Funny how things work out like that. Of course, I had a lot of other fun experiences in Berkeley during that time....
