A Playboy Cartoon

Not too very long ago — fifteen years? — if you asked a cartoonist to name the top two places to take one’s work, the answer would be The New Yorker, and then Playboy. In recent times, what with the roller-coastering of cartoon-usage at Playboy, the idea of a second best place is anyone’s call. “Will the Millenials Save Playboy?”  from today’s New York Times mentions there is a cartoon in the Summer issue of Playboy. Is there more than one?

Ah-nold’s Birthday

Thanks to Beth Lawler’s post on the Facebook group “New Yorker Caption Contest Rejects (and Enthusiasts)” I learned that today is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s birthday.  The perfect moment, I suppose, to bring out my one and only Arnold New Yorker cartoon, published November 11, 1985. So here’s to Ah-nold (who, according to my records, owns the original of this).
