I've come to realize that the rather large number of people who I assumed love coffee, in reality love half & half.  Highly sweetened half & half.  I see this evidenced by their ordering of a large coffee, walking to the supply bar, pouring half or more of their coffee into the trash then immediately refilling their cup with creamer and packets upon packets of sugar.
ugh ---blehhh...
I guess it's a clever way for them to get warm ice cream...

The concept of 'Thrust' is essential to the gesture of the pose and to the basic body language communicated.  Without attention to this visual force, one ends up with a collection of discordant butterflies.
...and that's a poor way to live your life.

George Bernard Shaw said that without art, the crudeness of reality would make life unbearable.
Caricature pushes the crudeness of reality so far forward that we come out the other side of life.
