During the recent Chinese New Year, the Year of the Tiger gave way to the Year of the Rabbit. Given the economic and other woes facing China and the rest of the world in 2010, the Lunar New Year was certainly an occasion to look forward to better and more prosperous times to come. In this cartoon, posted by artist Xu Jun (徐骏) to his blog at QQ.com, a weary and ragged tiger steps out of his burning apartment on crutches and hands the reins over to a very apprehensive rabbit. The tiger clutches his “2010 Work Handover Report,” presumably a record of misery, and says to the rabbit: “Best of luck!”
