Last November’s elections in Myanmar saw authoritarian military rule brought to an end by a landmark victory for Aung San Suu Kyi and her pro-democracy party.

What was recently unthinkable is now evidently doable as freedom of speech returns in the the land also known as Burma. Satire is enjoying a renaissance, with cartoonists like Maung Maung Aung (pictured above) once again happily doing what they do best: skewering politicians.

You can read more about this happy state of affairs on the Bangkok Post website and Mizzima, a Myanmar news website.

Thanks to The Surreal McCoy for picking up this story.
