February 21. On this day in 1925, the first issue of the New Yorker magazine was published. Now I've never really given much thought to the New Yorker, an American magazine - which includes short stories, commentaries and reviews about a range of political and cultural topics. But on looking a bit more closely, I was surprised to see how much DOG content is in a magazine. In fact, there have been so may cartoons and covers about dogs, that books have been published about the dog content! In this article you can see just a few of the many dog covers over the years:
And here is one of the books:
And here is a sampling of some of the MANY cartoons that have appeared in the magazine:
Personally, I like the one where the dog is telling the cat that they don't keep him (the cat) on a leash, because they want him to run away. OK. That's bad. But funny...
Humor is in the eye of the beholder - and my bet is that you can find at LEAST one of these cartoon that will make you chuckle. Or at least smirk....Something also tells me that the dogs in this house could be the subjects for some of those cartoons ....
Have a good one. Peace and paws up!
