What a futile, futile exercise. Pure PoE.

Please, please, PLEASE tell me this is the first two of thousands.
I promise five stars for the first hundred.
|Aelric - 2008-03-05 |
you know, i'm not gonna break up the party by giving this the one star i feel it deserves, but i can't vote any higher because it's not even ironically amusing in that so bad it's good kinda way. is this what rich folk find funny? thank god i'm a country boy.

A couple weeks ago I watched these on the New Yorker site one after another trying to find one good one. No. Success. Whatsoever.

They're just much smarter than your Dilberts and your Achewoods. Man people who read the New Yorker must be geniuses.
I mainly did that because I honestly couldn't name another newspaper comic. I felt the pressure and slapped in the other comic I thought people would know.

Paul Noth is actually pretty hilarious. I'm surprised he's actually working for them, but most New Yorker cartoons are crap. I'm not sure why I read this magazine, but I'll read pretty much any magazine that is put in front of me. I read a copy of Pizza Today at Nina's Pizzeria on Meeker St. The whole copy of Pizza Today.
i would totally read Pizza Today.

Only thing that could improve this is a Lasagna Cat-esque drumroll after every punchline.
a rimshot and studio audience laughter and a muted trumpet going 'wah wah waaaah'.

Needs a fatal farm music video after each one.

It's a pig at a complain department.
And he's saying, "I wish I was taller." Ha ha! See? That's his complaint.
That was (supposed to be) a quote from the Seinfeld episode where Elaine unknowingly ripped off the Ziggy.

I... I... can't even find this funny in an ironic manner.
|nocash - 2008-03-05 |
I'm giving this a three because it's not a Gahan Wilson or Booth cartoon.
|Cap'n Profan!ty - 2008-03-06 |
Duffy? If only they'd animate "The Fusco Brothers."

HA, HA. QUITE.

TAPE DISPENSERS LOOK LIKE SNAILS

I've gotten pathetically old enough that I actually really like some of the cartoons in the New Yorker, but I still can't stand the ones that are always two people standing in a party, holding cocktail glasses, with one of them saying something like "I asked for Gewurztraminer and he gave me Rotklaevner!"
|Rudy - 2008-03-06 |
I'm still waiting for the punchline of the second cartoon.
|Roachbud - 2008-03-06 |
Now if only they would animate Sy Hersch stories. It would be a bunch of old guys with their faces blacked out but cigars visible.
|cognitivedissonance - 2008-03-06 |
It occurs to me that the Charles Addams estate should be doing this, as should the Edward Gorey estate. Adult Swim could find use for 5 seconds of animation between commercials, I'm sure.
I have some terrible news for you.
|RandomFerret - 2008-04-11 |
Wait, wait, wait. These are GENUINE??
I thought they were ironic like lasagna cat!

Even the snail has a snooty east coast accent.

"I SAY, HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE MET RECENTLY?"
"OF COURSE, OLD BEAN."

A perfectly cut diamond of unfunny, as big as the palm of your hand.
|Potrod - 2010-03-15 |
I don't think a static, 1-line cartoon is the best use of animation. That said, the New Yorker is actually a pretty good magazine, despite the cartoons.
