Gout Images and Cartoons

While gout is a very serious and extremely painful form of inflammatory arthritis, it is widely misunderstood–and often unjustly poked fun at–by the general public. To help raise awareness about the severity of gout, debunk common myths and encourage proper diagnosis and treatment, the Gout Education Society has teamed up with cartoonist Shaun Boland to introduce a series of educational comics.

If you’re looking for a gout meme or cartoon, look no further! We’ve rounded up some funny gout jokes in the form of gout images and cartoons to help you laugh away the anxiety that comes with a gout diagnosis.

If you are interested in publishing a gout cartoon or using one as a sidebar to an article about gout, please contact info@gouteducation.org.


Gout is no laughing matter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with it. After all, laughter is the best medicine! A big toe cartoon from the gout education society will surely get a chuckle out of you.

So take a break from worrying about your gout, and enjoy a good laugh instead!
