Playboy cartoon- Sept. 2012 - Roy Delgado

This drawing appears on page144 in
the September 2012 issue of Hefner's magazine.

It's a two-column color as they call it,
one of my favorite cartoons . . . rejected by 
The Mankoffer at the 
The New Yorker magazine . . .  
( as a black and white wash drawing )
then sold immediately to Playboy the
second time out.  MY gain, (AND PLAYBOY'S),
The Yorker's loss, as I see it.

If you don't think this is funny,
 there is something wrong with you.
Nuf sed.

you tend to see every problem as a nail. "

  1. This cartoon is a classic gag formula; great setup, and then the surprise twist at the end. Great work!

  2. Thank you Wriot, for your astute observation . . . you are absolutely right . . . in the old days you used to see Bob Hope and Milton Berle use this type of staging for a lot of their material,
    it's a typical familiar situation, then you get set up . . . then POW. You almost can't refrain from at least gigling. It is my favorite type of gag.
