Anna Karin Elde’s illustrations and captions

This has been a favourite of mine for a long time:

(For English speakers, the text says “One can feel a little tired and out of sorts a couple of days before menstruating”.)

As always, I cannot really say if Swedish humour translates into English. But it works in Swedish. I had to dig these out to show my daughter, who at nearly ten is going through the hormonal adjustments of pre-adolescence. She is not enjoying it at all.

(The one below says “It is not uncommon to feel a little swollen”.)
