In the film: Who framed Roger Rabbit, the sultry, seductive cartoon character: Jessica Rabbit, gave the perfect excuse for her dubious virtue - that being a ’toon’, her nature must be determined by the artist who drew her. Perhaps the same exculpation could apply to us if we too are the result of creation by another.

 

 

 
 
FRAMED In submitting my last résumé Jessica Rabbit inspires me to say Though some call me a cad I’m not really that bad It’s just that I was drawn this way There’s a catch in assigning creation Of our being in all its summation To another as source Who gave them the force? Cue: an infinite reiteration Still if I were the artist divine And it were in my power to assign All the features impose Including the nose I’d draw one much better than mine Inspired by the film: - Who framed Roger Rabbit

Thanks Alexis. I share your appreciation of the mixing of ‘real’ people with ‘toons. It raises some interesting questions on our nature and origins.
