I'm trying to imagine a reader reaction to this one. "Oh my, how poignant! A movie called 'Monster Vs. Aliens' is released at the same that someone slaughters immigrants!"
The tear really amps up the maudlin factor on this one and perfectly illustrates the random forced combination of unrelated news stories cartoonists often attempt. In other words, the thought process works like this: "Hey, it's Friday--let's combine things!" It's what Sean Delonas did with the infamous monkey cartoon and why so many people look at editorial cartoons and laugh in the wrong way.
