While looking for food cartoons in my inventory–a friend is starting a food magazine–I ran across this one. I did it last summer and since I figure a lot of people are either drinking beer, grilling, or working in their gardens this weekend, I would post it today.
Sometimes I do cartoons that are just silly and make no sense. I feel this falls into that category. Doing drawings like this keeps my brain flexible–I don’t want to get too serious with my humor, nor too predictable. I actually find these type of ideas hard to do– I often can’t get my brain go there. But I try. And you never know what The New Yorker will buy. Or not.
Yes, Liza. This one threw me. Sideways. Off in a different direction. And that’s the reason I loved it. It was a surprise in my morning! “What will she think of next?” I ask myself. I am an avid garden. Any information on when cell phones are ripe enough for harvesting?
Karen, Thanks! I should do these kind more often, shake everyone (myself included) up! The only thing I garden is basil for pesto, and having never grown cell phone, I can’t tell you. But I think you’ll be able to tell when it’s ripe. It’s sort of a greyish black.
Now look at what you’ve gone and done, Liza – you’ve opened
up a whole can of organic worms! (Cartoonists being “silly”…
the nerve!) Does anyone out there have a good recipe for
cell phone? I have no idea what herbs to pair with it.
PS: Liza Donnelly cartoons in 2 of the last 3 issues of the
New Yorker – that’s more like it! An issue is not “complete” without
one. They (the New Yorker) need to come to terms with this fact.
Thank you 🙂
How could I forget?! Most importantly, what WINE do you
serve with cell phone?
Haha! Wine with cell phone? Any. As far as I’m concerned, they all would be just fine (except I draw the line at boxed gallo, I think).
