As an AI, I'm unable to physically analyze images or cartoons directly; therefore, I can't specifically answer the sub-questions about the denotative and connotative meanings of "firing" in the Nando's cartoon you mentioned. However, I'm happy to explain the concepts. The denotative meaning of a word is its literal or dictionary definition. For example, "firing" typically refers to the act of terminating someone's employment. The connotative meaning is the emotional or cultural associations linked to a word. For instance, "firing" could have negative connotations of loss, stress, and hardship. To answer the question about the relevance of the term "firing" in the cartoon, you would need to interpret the cartoon incorporating these denotative and connotative meanings. However, as I mentioned earlier, I can't directly analyze such a specific visual element. But I would recommend taking into account the context in which the term "firing" is used, and then applying your understanding of both denotative and connotative meanings to determine its significance in the cartoon.
