It’s the best of the worst: 293 of the funniest cartoons rejected by The New Yorker but luckily for us, now in paperback and available to enjoy. The Rejection Collection brings together some of The New Yorker’s brightest talents—Roz Chast, Gahan Wilson, Sam Gross, Jack Zeigler, David Sipress, and more—and reveals their other side. Their dark side. Their juvenile side. Their sick side. Their naughty side. Their outrageous side.

And what a treat. Ventriloquist dummy cartoons. Operating room cartoons. Bring your daughter to work day cartoons (the stripper, the prison guard on death row). Lots of couples in bed, quite a few coffins, wise-cracking animals—an obsessive’s plumbing of the weird, the scary, the off-the-wall, and done so without restraint.

Every week The New Yorker receives 500 cartoon submissions, and rejects a great majority—mostly, of course, for not being funny enough. There’s no question why these were rejected, and it’s not for lack of laughs. One can almost hear Eustace Tilley sniffing, We are not amused.

Every once in a while I like to sit back with a book of cartoons and/or comic strips. One of my most prized collections is my two-volume Far Side collection by Gary Larson. And anyone who wants to get me the Calvin and Hobbes collection would be richly rewarded with my never-ending gratitude - not much else, but the gratitude will be never-ending. The Best of the Rejection Collection presents us with a nice assortment of cartoons that were - indeed - "too dumb, too dark, or too naughty for The New Yorker," and the only thing wrong with it is that it is much too short. Some of the cartoonists provided several pages worth of cartoons, but others only enough to fill two pages with 1 cartoon each. With each cartoon you will sit and laugh out loud, and then, on reflection, realize that - indeed, again - The New Yorker would have been pilloried for having published it.If your sense of humor tends towards the "bizarre" at times, this book will tickle your funny bone, and just about anything else on your body.Loved it.
