What are you really reading?

The old joke about Playboy was that most men claimed they read the magazine for the articles. I make a similar claim about The New Yorker. It's even true. But if TNY ever decided to eliminate its cartoons, I'd have a hard decision to make. Not only do they make me laugh out loud, I can't wait to share them with others.

Take the Alex Gregory cartoon where two dogs are talking. One says: “I had my own blog for a while, but I decided to go back to just pointless, incessant barking.”

Yes, just about anyone can blog these days.

And as one who used to walk a dog several times a day, I don't find the idea of canine blogging that outlandish. After all, dogs have been exchanging pee-mail for ages.
