It's a pig at a complaint department and he's saying "I wish I was taller."
Anonymous asked: The drawing was of an insect and the caption simply read "Mr. Perfect.
This cartoon underscores the fact that the elusive “Mr. Perfect” doesn’t exist. Even if you find a great guy with two heads, a ripped thorax, and saws for arms, he’ll probably turn out to be super religious.
waterincoporated asked: It's a carotoon from William Hamilton: I think they'll be perfect together - he's a journlist and she's a complete composite: It's item number Item #: 8539458 in the condenast store. What does this mean? thanks - Pete
The overeager matchmaker in this cartoon is trying to set up her two friends at a dinner party. This cartoon is funny because we all know how this will end: murder.
Anonymous asked: In the Jan. 20 2014 issue on page 50: A pig, lying on the psychiatrist's couch, asks "Why are we here?" The psychiatrist, also a pig, says nothing, but there's a tear rolling down his cheek. Is it that they're here merely to become bacon?? If so, that's so depressing and not funny at all!! I sure hope I'm missing something ... Thank you! R
This cartoon is not about bacon at all. It’s about the devastating agony of suffering through daily life in a meaningless, godless universe where nothing we do matters in the remotest sense. So it’s actually quite humorous.
Anonymous asked: Page 78 in the Anniversary issue, Feb. 17/24, 2014. Two octopuses with array of colors, a third with what looks like a color wheel. Caption: Fifth hand, pale chartreuse. What is this about?
This octopus version of Twister needs to have 24 unique rows to accommodate their eight appendages. Because there are not 24 color words in the English language, the surly octopus on the lower right has had to resort to making up words like “chartreuse.”
Anonymous asked: My instructions were to the release the tigers the minute Uncle Henry arrived. (In the cartoon a young man is opening a cage as presumably Uncle Henry arrives.) Help...I don't understand this.
I need a link to the cartoon, or at the very least, some more information about what issue it was printed in so I can maybe find it myself.
