This is a 4 frame strip cartoon entitled Criptarts - Episode 17. The first frame has Criptart regulars Bonk and Ben standing opposite each other. Bonk has an angry expression on his face and is saying: "That bloody McVey woman hasn't got a clue about Mental Health issues!" In the second frame Ben asks Bonk: "Is this about you attending for your Work Capability Assessment?". Frame four has Bonk replying: "Yes - I told her that I had a problem attending due to my paranoid psychosis" The final frame has Bonk continuing: "So she told me that if I lacked insight into my condition then a friend could come and talk about me instead!" Ben replies: "duh!"
