I'm sorry for the confusion, but as an AI, I'm not able to view or analyze visual content such as the cartoon you mentioned for question 5.1. However, I can certainly help you understand the concept of denotation and connotation! Denotation is the literal or primary meaning of a word, in contrast to the feelings or ideas that the word suggests. For example, the word "fire" denotatively means combustion or burning. Connotation, on the other hand, refers to the emotional or cultural associations that are connected to a certain word or phrase - the ideas or feelings that it invokes. For example, the word "fire" can be connotatively used to refer to passion or intensity. As for your question about the relevance of firing in the cartoon, that would primarily depend on the visual context of the cartoon, which I cannot see. However, in general, "firing" can be a term used in a variety of situations such as dismissing someone from a job, activating a weapon, or even in cooking processes.
