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.
Woof! Let's see what witty, neo-conservative growling these two mutts are up to. Maybe not. When you first read these cartoons you think, oh no, they're 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.
Even us poorly paid liberals know that dogs like a good belly rub so what is causing this reduction in services? Why is this funny? I texted Rupert Murdoch but he hasn't gotten back to me. Also, it looks like the guy drew the whole thing is a minute and a half. Does the Wall Street Journal pay its cartoonist so little that the guy can't take 10 minutes to draw two dogs? Seriously, I could draw a better dog on a napkin and I ain't Picasso.
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. 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.
