Could World War Three be sparked by two men arguing over who’s got the biggest … rocket?

That’s the idea put forward by British newspaper The Evening Standard who published a suggestive cartoon on US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un comparing ‘rocket size’.

The cartoon appeared in the Saturday edition of the paper and depicts the two men showing off their rockets — a dig at Trump’s UN speech in which he called Jong-un “rocket man” and threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea.

The cartoon has received plenty of positive comments online with some saying it “hits the nail on the head” and others calling it “bloody hilarious”.

Not everyone was impressed though, with some Twitter users saying the paper went too far and has “zero credibility” now.

Cartoonists have relished depicting Trump in compromising positions since he became president with newspapers and magazines printing hundreds of satirical drawings of him since his inauguration.

What do you think of the cartoon? Hilarious or too far?
