Not Funny Ha-Ha, Funny Like a Smell
Today, however, it was pretty clear they'd screwed something up. It looks like I'd been sent a cartoon that obviously required a caption, and yet there was none. That happened occasionally at Hallmark, so I recognized the problem. (We once sent out a card whose outside said "Brother..." along with a suspiciously large blank empty space, and on the inside it said, "I miss doing that." It sold, how do you say, poorly.) So I clicked the link to report the error, and I discovered it wasn't an error. It's just not that funny.
Just so The New Yorker Of The Past can learn the difference between a punch line and a premise, I've been trying to think of a caption that COULD go with the drawing, but so far, I haven't come up with anything I'm willing to type. When I have something that doesn't suck, I'll let you know. Feel free to make suggestions.
[Later:] Got one! "If this were a Charles Addams cartoon, we'd be about to go over a waterfall."
