Text that describes the cartoons in this series.
Horace, the Roman satirist, would undoubtedly appreciate the particular sense of humor of cartoons for, in the first century B.C., he invented a phrase to describe just such a spirit. "Black salt," he called it, reaching into Greece to borrow the "salt," an Attic term for humor, and adding "black" to indicate more precisely the degree of its pungency, or bite. Horace himself, of course, was an expert on black salt, having developed a form of satire so basic that it's still being used by our stand-up comedians today.
