Just not very funny.
on June 3, 2014
I love New Yorker cartoons, I love dogs, and I love humor. But, there was barely a decent chuckle to be found here.
The book was published in 1992. However, some of the cartoons must date back to the 1940s (there is a reference to a Packard automobile). This would not be a problem, except that the cartoons are just not very clever or funny.
I bought this as a gift, and was disappointed. You can flip through this book in about 10 minutes, and then you are done. As a hardcover book, it seems too nice to throw away, so now you are stuck with it until you can foist it on someone else. Do so as soon as possible, and then move on with your life, sadder, poorer, but wiser.
