Cartoon of the Day: People Are Losing It Over This New Yorker Cartoon

New Yorker cartoons aren’t for everybody. Sometimes they aren't for anybody because they make no sense and aren’t funny.

via  José Soto Galindo

Today’s New Yorker cartoon, however, wasn’t met with the usual snorts of agreement or complete confusion of your standard panel. Cartoonist Will McPhail took aim at the president-elect and his supporters, and you’ll never believe it, some people really like that, and some people do not. Some see this as a potent metaphor for the rise of a reality TV gameshow host and his lack presidential qualification to take the country, others see it as another attack from the elite New Yorker to tell the rest of the country how to live. Whatever it is, the mustachioed man in the cartoon does not look like he's in the mood to fly a plane.

Check out what some people are saying about the cartoon.

Advertisement of the Day: This Subway Ad Looks Like Something Out of Mad Max

Suddenly, Black Mirror doesn't seem so crazy.

We get a little bit closer to that dystopian future of our dreams everyday, and sometimes an advertisement notices how close we are.

A subway billboard in Beijing has done just that.

The advertisement is for a sports haze mask and features a female running with a face mask that looks like a souvenir from Fury Road. A sports haze mask is for people attempting to exercise in heavy smog areas, like Beijing.

Twitter reacted, as it's wont to do, welcoming the new oncoming dystopia.

How does Trump bring the world to its knees in 140 characters? This YouTuber things he knows the answer.

President-elect Donald Trump, the reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last year, can cause an international incident with only the power of his thumbs. Through Twitter, Trump delivers the unfiltered id that is our next four years, but what is he looking to accomplish by sending so many into a panic? There isn’t a whole lot of room for nuance or explanation in a Tweet, and those details are critical. Now, as his incoming press secretary said that he’ll be making major policy announcements via Twitter, it’s worth understanding how Trump tweets.

Trump tweets for impact, and he knows how to do it. The Nerdwriter gets into some of the science of tweeting and more. Check it out.
