Mood swings

A vulgar but entertaining cartoon passed around on Facebook without attribution. Then I found this version with a source:

(Unfortunately, the source was PMSLweb (‘piss myself laughing’) The Internet Scavengers from 10/4/16 — a aggregation site for tasteless jokes. So we don’t actually know anything about the source.)

The cartoon plays, verbally and visually, on two senses of swing:

noun swing: a seat suspended by ropes or chains, on which someone may sit and swing back and forth. [the apparatus in the cartoon]

figurative sense of the noun swing in mood swing: an abrupt and apparently unaccountable change of mood.

The mood of the swing in the cartoon has taken a dark and hostile  swing.

    Hard to tell what happens when I click “like”. I use WordPress via mobile web rather than app. In any case, “Like.”
