Little Red Riding Hood

 
For this assignment we were asked to find a cartoon on Little Red Riding Hood online and as I was scrolling through google this one caught my eye. I thought it was very clever. During this age, we are all about computers and typos are a huge issue. By keeping the classic structure "My what big ______ you have" just makes it more humerous. This cartoon is a social cartoon. This cartoon is clearly not "updated" however. Who uses deskstops anymore and why is the laptop rounded? I like how the artist kept the wolf dressed as the grandmother however. It's nice to see that people still consider old tales like "Little Red Riding Hood" in their comedies these days.
