Cartoon: Under Someone’s Thumb

Cartoon by Bill Day of The Commercial Appeal in Memphis, Tennessee and published on 18 May 2009.

To be under someone’s thumb means to be completely under the control of someone and subordinate to them. The cartoon here is criticizing the practices of credit card companies and the high interest rates they charge the consumer.

In male-dominated societies, the wives are completely under their husbands’ thumbs.
