The Mystery of Mental Illness Solved?
Caption: Ancient Relics reveal plausible reason why natives disappeared. Depression!
Yes, you know those are the Easter Island heads. The Island in the Pacific Ocean, and yes, legend is that the island was named “Easter Island” because it was discovered on Easter Sunday. As Chilean territory, it is very remote..over 2,000 from mainland and near 65 square miles [166 sq km], the island is basicly 3 connecting extinct volcanoes.
On the island there is an exotic array of delicacies. Fruits such as pineapples, avocados, papayas, and varieties of bananas. And the ocean provides fish by the hollowed out tree loads. Yes, these natives called the Rapa Nui, no doubt, needed all the food they could handle to make these head and full body Ancient Relics on Easter Island called Moai. There are some 887 statues. Island archaeologicalist dating them back to 1250 C.E. Some weighing in at 82 tons. Or as much as an 82 ton Bradley Fighting Vehicle Tank and some as tall as 3 story high buildings.
Yes, monumental statues, called moai, created by its early Rapa Nui inhabitants during the 10th-16th centuries. The moai are carved human figures with oversize heads, often resting on massive rock altars called ahus. Ahu Tongariki has the largest group upright. –
Chato Notes: Started off with drawing the the Over-medicated.com cartoon series with sad faces on the Easter Island Moai. The caption: “The Mystery of Mental Illness Solved?” As I drew, 3 heads turned to 4, then I added a hill and put 3 more in the back. Even added 3 birds pooping on the head of one of them. 🙂
Finishing up the cartoon I had it ready to go, but then changed the above ©Mental Health Humor Cartoon caption because I felt the gag would go over the head of many people if they didn’t connect the joke right away. The caption originally was: “Shocking Discovery finds proof Easter Island links Moai to MAOI’s .”
Did you ger the reference and play on words??? MAOIs or monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) were more from the 1950s to the late 70’s till ‘80s, when Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) like Prozac (fluoxetine ) hit the scene.
The cartoon works better with “Ancient Relics reveal plausible reason why natives disappeared. Depression!” I think it explains why I’ve drawn Moai sad and depressed looking.
