What is the ‘joke’ here?


#1

I feel like I know what it is. But surely that can’t be it?


#2

Dunno lolz still 0 replies really


#3

HAHAHA! Classic MStevens! :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:


#4

He’s done it again!


#5

Another triumph!


#6

Does M Stevens have previous for this kind of bullshit?


#7

Is this from the New Yorker? Their “jokes” are generally known to be painfully unfunny, aren’t they?


#8

I guess that it is ludicrous a kid would want to borrow a password rather than whatever they would borrow in the olden days


#9

^it’s this (with a car being what they would borrow in the olden days).

Do we think it’s just an Internet password, or a porn site one?


#10


#11

Agree this is it. But the kid doesn’t look anywhere near the age he’d be borrowing the car


#12

Ageist


#13

that’s part of the joke surely - that a 6 year old is just as able to command a complex machine as his dad, compared to the car version a generation previous


#14

Doesn’t really work, any kid that age would have their own computer


#15

Think we are giving this cartoon more attention than it deserves


#16

#17

While we’re on this subject, am I being dim or is this caption incorrect (should be landscape better than portrait, surely?)

#18

Agreed.


#19

this is the real joke

Someone wrote a piece a while back about how every New Yorker cartoon can be captioned with “I’d like to connect with you on LinkedIn” and in many cases it improves the actual joke. I think this is one of those cases.
