A great New Yorker cartoon

... from J. C. Duffy.

I never much cared for jokes in which animals pitch.

Your blog is sometimes playing adverts again in the background. It's very strange. I've tried to isolate what's going on, but I'm guessing that something you've added sometimes tries to play video adverts. Weird.

Also, is it just me, or have the CAPTCHAS been replaced with simple adverts? Really strange things happening on this blog! Lol.

HI Johnny,
Yep, I get 'em, too.

I have nothing to do with any advertisements or the CAPCHAS program. Google controls Blogger and it's their operating program. I have no say. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Johnny Walker said...

Well the captures are super easy now, they always say "Photo Sphere", so that should please some readers.

The detail that makes it really funny is tiny: the set of the pitcher's mouth. He may be wearing crazy specs and a goofy hat, but he's dead serious. A lesser cartoonist would have made the whole thing silly. Nice example of the rule that to play it straight is to make it even funnier.

I don't get it. Can someone explain?

Embarrassed: cartoons are like gossamer, and one doesn't dissect gossamer.

(I can't believe there aren't more Seinfeld jokes in this comment section.)
