Visual Description : Three employees of Check 6 media (a faceless cameraman, 2 caricatures) are standing at the front of Swans Pub. A group of disheveled men holding beer bottles arrive in a shopping cari on the right hand side, facing the media. One of the desheveled men is holding a piece of paper that reads, "Canadian Caroonist Convention, Victoria 1996". He is signalling more people to follow with a wave of his left hand. A handwritten, text caption in capital letters is located below the drawing, which reads: "What incredible luck ... we're witnessing the moment when a flock of ugly ducks turn into Swans!!"
