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.
It's a rabbit! It's funny because the rabbit is wearing a suit and thinks it's people. Wait, this is the Wall Street Journal, it must be deeper than that. Is it saying that corporate America is so greedy they would hire rodents, pay them in lettuce and then eat them in a classic Sauce Chasseur? Nah, it's the same tired bit that children's television shows have been doing since Captain Kangaroo.
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.
This is the part of the post where I attempt to write funnier captions. Don't forget, 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.
