The Wall Street Journal, January 25, 1983


In 1992, nine years after this was published in The Wall Street Journal, I was surprised to see the gag appear in The New Yorker. It was drawn by a cartoonist I admire and respect, and the caption was "You will have a nice day." Great minds think alike, I guess.


Eli, you could mail a tear sheet of your 1992 cartoon to the NYer Fact Checking dept. along with a note telling them to WAKE UP!

Oops. I meant to say your 1983 cartoon. There is no fact checking dept. here at Mike Lynch Cartoons.
