Rob Ford gets a New Yorker cartoon

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has distinguished himself again, becoming the first mayor in Toronto history to be the punchline of a New Yorker cartoon. In Paul Noth's cartoon, two fellows at a bar watch Ford on a TV, and one says to the other, "Finally, a politician with the courage to take on Big Sanity." Though, (as Accordion Guy points out), you can always just caption it, "Christ, what an asshole."

    "Christ, what an asshole" is lazy. I much prefer the "big sanity" caption.

  2. What, no "laughable Bumblefuck" anymore?

  3. jerwin says:

    A dangerous conspiracy among the sane to thwart the political, economic, social and religious ambitions of those who have "lost touch with reality."

  4. Dave's Law says that every New Yorker cartoon is funnier if you replace the caption with "I'm going to kill myself." It works well here as always.
