My Favourite Internet Cartoon

I really love this cartoon and enjoy talking about it with my family members, especially my oldest grandchildren.  I can’t believe that it was created in 1993, nearly 26 years ago! The creator, Peter Steiner, is an author. It was first published it in The New Yorker magazine on July 5th, 1993. Here’s my information source.
