A very enjoyable collection of cartoons that were rejected for publication in The New Yorker. Often, it's obvious why a cartoon didn't make it (scatological, sexual, and just plain gross humor abounds) but there were a few here I thought the editor should have run. I often laughed more at the "interviews" with the various cartoonists. (Actually, all the cartoonists filled out the same survey, answering questions like "Where do you get your ideas?" with absolutely hilarious results.) Some great stuff here - and I'd go so far as to say this is probably a "must-read" for fans of New Yorker cartoons.
