The Wall Street Journal has a daily cartoon called Pepper and Salt that I really, really don't like. Apparently, rich Wall Street scumbags have their own unique form of humor that is not funny. Here's today's cartoon.
Say ahhhh! Looks like another neo-conservative bashing of Obama's health care initiative. Maybe not. When you first read these cartoons you think, oh no, these are just like the cartoons in the New Yorker, I'm just too stupid to understand them. But after weeks of analysis, I've come to the conclusion that we're smart enough, they just suck, and they almost never have anything to do with business, or the right wing agenda of the Wall Street Journal.
Just look at that poorly drawn hypodermic needle. It is a needle, right? She wouldn't be using her cellphone to get rid of his humming unless she was calling Homeland Security to report the poor bastard as a terrorist threat. And check out those vertical lines below the squiggle that denotes her waist -- that nurse is wearing a skirt!!!! Do really rich guys that read the Wall Street Journal get to go to hospitals where the nurses actually wear skirts!?!
This is the part of the post where I attempt to write funnier captions. Remember this is a "business" comic for Wall Street Journal readers that is officially housed in the collections of the Harvard Business School Library assuring that future generations of MBA assholes will have no sense of humor. Here's my attempt at funnier versions. If you are the president of a major university and want to house a collection of my work, e-mail me.
And today's winner so far:
As always, I will continue to add captions to this post all day until I think of something funny. You are invited to help but you won't because leaving a comment is too much damn effort, bitch.
