All of the drawings and stories on this website are well over 100 years old, with some fast approaching the 200 year mark. It should be remembered that such items are an important resource in the study of contemporary and past cultures. We feel is more important to display them honestly for what they are, rather than censoring certain items and pretending some prejudices did not exist.
On a card my wife received was the cartoon and only the first two lines. I didn't know they were the start of a limerick, so I made up my own ending:
There was an old man on whose nose
Most birds of the air could repose
And that would include those exotic and rude
But ostriches not, I suppose.
