  1. Not a cartoon, but a "commentary" on Martha Stewart's horrid food photo tweets: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelzarrell...

    I think MS should get a new camera or start eating prettier food. LOL

      With food like that, I think I would eat in the dark. ;-)

      1. re: Antilope

        i know! i was really surprised how awful the food looked, and that she chose to publish them proudly (being the maven of fastidious presentations herself). i was also shocked at the places she was eating. i know the prices, so seeing those dishes made me think "wow! i expected something *quite* different!"

        1. re: alkapal

          Maybe a drink or two before dinner made the food look better? "Beer goggles"? 8-)

      1. I like the old Far Side cartoon that shows a cow cooking hamburgers at a cookout. My brother used to have that one on a t-shirt.

              both of these cracked me up. i had an opportunity to see a huge exhibit of gary larson original drawings cartoons with my mom at the smithsonian years ago; he was the best!

                  I like that they're not zombie cows - they labeled the head "Throw away."

            2. In the 80's my sister bought me a t-shirt with this frog legs cartoon on the front. No I didn't wear it.

                Don't have it handy, but I am sure this was done decades earlier in The New Yorker.

                  I think it was originally in National Lampoon.

                    Now that you mention it, I think you are right.

              2. Pleased to meet you, Milk. Here's another cartoon.
