New Yorker cartoon selection

Although this is NOT technically true, and in no way is it actually 100% correct  . . . HOWEVER, HOWEVER . . . it is, you might say, or COULD truthfully say he has a slight edge over another sap cartoonist trying to get chosen . . . simply because there are only so many slots every week and he has a chance every week . . because he has a horse in every race . . .  a SLIGHT edge . . . BECAUSE, since he, being the cartoon editor picks from thousands and thousands of cartoons to be chosen besides HIS to fill out the rest of the small batch to be reviewed by the other two staff members who will actually thin the herd to the final amount that they will actually buy that week . . . HE HAS MORE CHANCES TO BE SEEN FOR THE FINAL SELECTION, period.

The same analogy is the more lottery tickets you buy, OR the more often you buy, your chances of winning is increased exponentially, because you have a horse in every race !

I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.  And if you can tell me with a straight face and say, aw-w-h Peter, you're just sour apples . . That's YOUR problem . . . You just can't cut it . . . admit it . . . Your problem is you KNOW TOO MUCH . . . You can't PRETEND you can't draw . . You can't fake it, HA . . HA ,  HA !
