More Wall Street Journal Humor

Another Post Courtesy of the Wall Street Journal - I kid Rupert Murdoch a lot when we see each other at the Friar's Club but his rag does supply an endless assortment of crap for my blog.

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.

There's nothing like a good folding maps joke and that's nothing like a good folding maps joke. *RIMSHOT, PLEASE* I think the last time a folding map joke was fresh was when Henry Blake was still on MASH. And the actual "artwork" is pretty damn lame. It looks like a 3rd grader drew it with a crayon. Come on, those dummies books are book-sized not NY Times-sized.

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.

I will continue to add captions to this post all day until I think of something really funny. You are invited to help but you won't because leaving a comment is too much damn effort.


  1. Bob,

    Well done, Sir. I admire your jocularaneuousness.

    I continually find myself focused on the poorly rendered right ear of the head in the drawing. It looks nothing like an ear and it looks not at all like its partner on the left.

  2. Bill,

    Thanks for the comment!

    Still dead?


  3. Bob,

    Better to be a dead conservative than a live one watching the death of conservatism.

    P.S. Goebbels told me to say hello! :)

  4. Bill,

    Thanks for your comment!

    Does Marie Antoinette smell good? I always figured that she would smell all nice and powdery.


  5. Bill,

    I can't vouch for the allure of her aroma but I can tell you that Sweet Marie gives great head!

    Mercy, it is liberating to be free of the shackles of the New York Times Style Guide.

    Here's an acedote your readers may enjoy.

    When my dear friend William J. Pesce, CEO at Wiley came to me seeking advice on the naming of a new series of "How to" books for those less intelligent then most, I told him to specify the titles to the target audience. Something like, "Rhinoplasty for Jews" or "Gaining a Work Ethic for Dark Folks."

    He wrote me a substantial check.


  6. I love this Pepper and Salt cartoon, not always they post good jokes, but in general they are quite good.
