Hershey continues not to get published by the New Yorker ...

A lot of you enjoyed last week's blog post that included some of the cartoons that Hershey drew for the New Yorker, even though they were turned down, every single one of them. So here, and rather in the spirit of "what were they thinking?" are a few more that the New Yorker rejected ...

Well no, I don't think it does mean I'm denying climate change ... It's time to put the air conditioners back into storage ...

(Rejected by the New Yorker, October 6, 2015)

Farm-to-table? Certainly. Though perhaps I should point out that in this particular case the farm is about sixty miles southeast of Beijing ...

Yeah. Just getting back to you on that report of someone acting crazy down by the platform ... turns out it was the candidate ...

OK, so what makes this 'ventriloquism for the twenty-first century'?

(That's meant to be an iPhone behind the dummy's head ... Perhaps understandably this one was rejected by the New Yorker, October 12, 2015)

I'll be late. My Über went unter ...

I think it was around here his genius grant ran out ...

Do we need to write "semi-automatic assault rifle"? They'll assume that, right?

(Rejected by the New Yorker, October 12, 2015)

I find that it subtly shifts the balance of power ...

(One of Hershey's personal favorites. Rejected by the New Yorker, October 12, 2015)

These other guys' figures fall squarely into the bracket that we pollsters term "not a hope in

hell" ...

(Rejected by the New Yorker, October 6, 2015)

Yes, there's an ancient craft to building these dry stone walls, but I'd say epoxy resin is just as important ...

A one-off payment today Madam, and last week's poor-quality candy offerings won't damage your credit rating ...

(This one was meant to run the week after Halloween, but it too was rejected by the New Yorker, October 12, 2015)
