Assunto:  cartoon X charge
 
Mensagem:  A political cartoon in English is the same as a "charge" in Portuguese.

The word "charge" as it is used in Portuguese comes from French. It means "carga". It exaggerates someone's traits and makes those traits sound comical or sarcastic.
   
cartoon = esboço, estudo
