More Wall Street Journal Humor - Let's Make Fun of the Unemployed

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.


Ha, ha, ha, everybody is losing their jobs because the economy is tanking. There's something especially evil about the Wall Street Journal making fun of people losing their jobs, not particularly funny but evil, given that Wall Street greed and the capitalism that they worship is directly responsible. If it was funny, I'd give them a pass, but it's not. And once again, the cartoon is drawn for shite. The curving perspective of the walkway is nice but that rug and just about everything else sucks worse than Karl Rove with a mouth full of broken glass (copyright pending).

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, we'll talk.







And today's winner so far:
I'm sorry, but there are a lot of ways to draw two people waving good-bye, and that's not one of them. Those are definitely Nazi salutes. No accident. The editors, Mr. Murdoch, and Mr. Rove all secretly sport wood when they look at this crap.

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.

  1. Bobby,

    Honestly, the original is funnier than your pathetic attempts.

    His wife looks like a working girl. She probably leaves the house later than hubby, drops the kids off at daycare, and then takes the train into the city to teach underpriviledged kids.

    howabout,

    Don't trip over the Journal on your way to the BMW! Oh that's right, newspapers are dead.

    Because he's walking backwards in order to wave to his wife and most accidents occur at home.

  2. Bill!

    Where have you been? I post a bunch of photos of Miss USA looking all cute in a Mets jersey and, nothing.

    I must disagree. I think this is a pretty good WSJ rip. Are you off your meds? Working girl? Wall Street goons have housewives, it's part of the package.

    I'm obsessed with the rug and the Nazism.

  3. Bobby,

    Rug and Nazis, eh?

    howabout

    Heil Hitler, Honey! This rug made out of Zero Mostel's sphincter really pulls together the room.

    Because Zero Mostel was a fat Jew and that rug looks vaguely like an a-hole.

    With respect to the lovely Miss USA, when I was a younger man, and alive, I would never settle for a Miss USA when a Miss America was available for schtuppping.

    Did I ever tell you about the time that Bert Parks and I put Lee Meriweather on the old rotisserie?

  5. Mike,

    Thanks for the comment!

    I don't get the first one but I'm going to fire up the photoshop and get to work on the second.

    Bill,

    Nice. Zero Mostel! Don't worry, I'll throw you a bone.

    Would you be interested in a guest spot comparing the pnuematic qualities of Miss USAs vs. Miss Americas?
