Joji Morishita. "We are rich & well-fed. How can we display our good fortune to the world? I know, we'll harpoon and slaughter and hack whales to death!" "Little pricks..." 22 June, 2006.

Reference Number: DCDL-0001826

A caricature of Japan's chief whaling negotiator, Joji Morishita. He is shown standing in a whaling ship with a harpoon in one hand and a great scalpel-shaped blade in the other; both tools are dripping with blood and blood pours out of the ship into the sea. In the sea below is a wounded whale who thinks, 'Little pricks'. Morishita wears a white band round his head with the red circle of the Japanese flag on it. He is shouting cheerfully that killing whales is a great way to demonstrate Japan's good fortune to the world.
