THE BIRDY BUILDER
“I worry that I’m a burden on him
I hope he never lets us go”
Le Cat is a tough guy. He’s even an athlete (he plays golf, destroys his opponents in races …), and over 30 years his cartoons have shown his physical prowess time and time again.
But great sportspeople can be fragile, and the tiniest thing can destroy their chance of winning an Olympic final.
Here, Le Cat is lifting a heavy weight, and then, suddenly, the unexpected happens … a bird lands on one of the weights, the bodybuilding machine jams, and the great athlete loses his balance.
It’s like if a pigeon shits in the eye of the greatest footballer in the world, just as he’s about to take a championship penalty. The greatest sportspeople understand the grain of dust that can destroy their careers.
