New Yorker Cartoons

Stan Freberg here with a few great cartoons, all from the New Yorker magazine. Robert Weber has a young man in his late teens applying for a job. He proudly says to the personnel director,", I can READ!" Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again with a cartoon from Roz Chast. With everybody attacking the tabloids, how about a kinder, gentler tabloid called "The Polite Enquirer," with front page headlines like, "Brad Pitt Visits Relatives--Has Good Time"? How 'bout "Cher Finishes Jigsaw Puzzle--Took 2 Years"? Or, "George Clooney Visits Dentist--No Cavities!" Would that work? Naah. The cartoon is titled, "When Hell Freezes Over"...right.

Finally, Robert Mancoff shows a man sitting in front of his doctor's desk. He says, "Excuse me, doc, my attention wandered...what type of deficit disorder did you say I had?"
