If I drew cartoons for the New Yorker

If I drew cartoons for the New Yorker I'd draw one of someone saying that lately they're having trouble getting out of bed in the morning but then the image would be someone in bed and there would be some actual physical impediment preventing them from getting out of bed in the morning. Maybe there would be a tiger sitting on them? I can't figure out what it would be exactly but it would be very clever and also whimsical.

I think I won't be sharing this one on Red Eye. It's TOO GOOD. And by that I mean, not good enough.

Perhaps the impediment is a sheep sleeping on them for a touch of whimsy?

I just submitted a couple entries for the cartoon contest The New Yorker is having. Neither entry is a clever as the one you've described. Thanks a lot for ruining my weekend by being more witty than I.

How about a picture of Lara Flynn Boyle with Jack Nicholson on top of her as the impediment?

I think it could be an Oversized Old style computer crushing the person while he / she types out a blog post!

If you want to use that on Red Eye, the cartoon should have a guy with his hands and feet tied to the 4 posts of the bed and a woman standing next to him with a whip.

Now that's clever! For the whimsical part... maybe have the girl wear a party hat.

It could be Dracula in a coffin with the sun just coming over the horizon!

It could be a drawing of Vince from Sham Wow waking up handcuffed to a prostitute that's been beaten to death.

Better yet, how about it's a person in hell and his bed is surrounded by HOT MULTAN LAVA.

You could have an animal on you in bed, like a big gorilla (as in the 800lb gorilla in the room that everyone is trying to ignore) and have the word FEDERAL DEFICIT on it.

That would be a good image of the burden of the federal debt weighing people down where they don't even want to get out of bed.

Alison Rosen + Jaqob Jackson = BRILLIANT!!

"How about a picture of Nadya Suleman wiping her babies' butts with paper money. In the image, you also can see an opened package that indicates it's diaper wipes but instead there's a stack of dollar bills inside of it.


( Yet, this brainstorm probably has been used for some greedy politician in the past hence shedding a fragment of freshness for this idea....)"
