Funnier in the New Yorker

Not so funny to the New Yorker though. Submitted it to them and got rejected. Actually, ignored. They didn’t even use the SSAE. My net profit on half a dozen cartoons is minus $1.42 in stamps. Maybe they’re touchy about cartoons lampooning their crowd-source gag-writer thing.
That back-page cartoon caption contest has driven ninety-four professional cartoonists to suicide.
That’s high, even for professional cartoonists.

Hey, if cartoonists wanted to create something all by themselves that thousands of random armchair intellectuals couldn’t improve, they should’ve been rocket scientists or gymnasts or something.
