I hadn't noticed it before today, but there's a real look-alikey resemblance between my favourite cartoonist and animator Bun Heang Ung, who lives in Australia and posts his cartoons, often with a sharp political bite under the name Sacrava, and his Royal Highness, King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia. I'm sure Bun doesn't try to make a living posing as the King at public events but Sihamoni, who has acted in his father's films in the past, could play the part of Bun in a film version of his biography, The Murderous Revolution. Now that would be a turn up for the books! If you are not sure of who is who, check the artist's pen behind the ear and you won't go far wrong.

That Sacrava guy is no TRUE political satire because he only criticizes one side, the CPP people. Take a note of that and go look at all his drawings. He never criticizes Sam Rainsy. Every human is not perfect and therefore bad in some ways. Sam Rainsy isn't clear either if you dig into what's up with him. By only satirizing the CPP, that Sacrava guy sounds more of a Sam Rainsy sympathizer. Yet, another political tool disguising under the name political cartoonist.
