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.
Stop the presses!!! The Wall Street Journal has finally admitted that global warming exists. Has Dick Cheney noticed a lessening in quality of the fine French champagne he swills by the bucketload? I know nothing about wine. My wine of choice right now? Prosecco, because it's as close as you can get to a soda that will give you a buzz -- not counting rum and Coke. The OpEd page of the Journal is full of articles about the climate change hoax but when they are going for a laugh, those suits are willing to push it straight to the edge.
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.
