Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday

I didn’t know if I wanted to give this cartoon to CNN Opinion or my newspaper clients when I wrote it last Thursday. The reason for that is, I was antsy and wanted to publish it soon because I really liked it. If I was to draw it for my clients, then I could go ahead and post it Friday but for CNN, it’d have to wait until Sunday before my readers could see it. But, I do like to show my editor at CNN everything I come up with. So what I did was draw nine more ideas and sent them to him with those.

He didn’t waste much time because he selected this one within minutes of seeing it. Some of the ideas from the other nine were pretty good, but this truly was the best and it was meant for CNN all along.

Since this was selected Thursday afternoon, that meant I could draw it Friday and maybe relax a bit. Nope. Since my editor took this one, which was the only good one on the documents scandal, that meant I didn’t have anything else on the subject. So I spent most of Friday morning working on a new idea for my newspapers (ignoring the previous nine). After finishing that cartoon and then spending hours drawing oranges for this one, I was a tired boy.

Yes, I know a few other cartoonists drew their own “apples and oranges” cartoons, but none of them did this. Like Gronk, I’m special.
