    1. The Lone Ranger and Tonto share a very Brokeback moment A woman proudly sports a bumper sticker that reads My son is hung like a donkey As two young girls play in the sandbox, one asks the other, Wanna see me fake an orgasm YeahI see why these didn t make the magazine.


    2. The cartoons are totally inappropriate, raunchy, and mostly very funny However, the best part of the book are the questionnaires completes by the cartoonists Definitely a perfect bathroom read.


    3. Much like the first collection, this is a raucous look at the crude, vulgar, tasteless but funny cartoons that were rejected by the New Yorker magazine.Again each of the artists humorously fills out a questionnaire and contributes 3 5 cartoons.Like the previous collection, the lack of diversity caught my attention Of the 38 artists only 5 are women and none are a person of color Again, this might only represent those who were willing to contribute to the collection but it makes me wonder who mak [...]


    4. Reading this collection, I started to wonder if I had been magically transported to a Rush concert So many older white dudes Thirty nine contributors including the editor and five of them are women Five Here s a graph of that Dudes % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % % Ladies And boy oh boy is it white Again, 39 contributors How many are white 38 I m not even going to do a graph for that one Is the world of comics artists that homogeneous Not remotely, in my experie [...]


    5. Still funny, but a slightly weaker collection than the first There s a reliance on sex and toilet humour here that wasn t quite so prevalent in the first collection, and on the whole it comes across as slightly less clever than its predecessor The questionnaire forms that were a feature of the first book are repeated here, but feel forced and arbitrary, and don t actually reveal anything real about the cartoonists involved, which we did see in Volume One.Overall, it s still a funny book these ar [...]


    6. I love this series As a long time, avid New Yorker fan renewed subscription for over 10 years , I recognized a lot of these cartoonists work But it wasn t the rejected cartoons that made this volume so fascinating, it was the little bits of the cartoonists lives that were revealed in the self bios and pics You d be surprised at how much personality is revealed in someone s fridge After reading this series, I ve now added go on a date with a New Yorker cartoonist to my bucket list Any one know if [...]


    7. Each week The New Yorker receives than five hundred submissions from its regular cartoonists, who are all vying for one of the twenty coveted spots in the magazines the lowbrow and the dirty, to the politically incorrect and weird, these rejects represent the best of the worst With appendices that explore the top ten reasons why cartoons are rejected and examine the solitary nature of the job of cartooning I loved it as much as Volume 1


    8. Rejected cartoons from The New Yorker Not as funny as Vol 1, but still funny.My favorite cartoon out of this batch shows a street hot dog cart with a business man s head sticking out of it The sign on the side says Hot Dog Baths 1.00 End Of Day Special I don t know why this made me laugh so hard, but it did.


    9. Billed as More cartoons you ve never seen, and never will see, in The New Yorker this delightfully vulgar and amusingly awful collection is sure to get laughs out of the crankiest curmudgeon Interspersed with the various familiar New Yorker style cartoons are short bio sheets filled out by by the cartoonists So many wrong, wrong, wrong cartoon Just try and avert your eyes


    10. okay, I usually don t count cartoon books in my reading, but these two volumes had sufficient text in the questionnaires filled out by the cartoonists A voyeristic look into the minds of cartoonists AUGHHH PUT IT BACK ON An escape from reality and then the realization that one could could not do better


    11. As funny as the first volume, but it gets one star for cartoons, funnier cartoonist profiles, and a hilarious appendix presenting examples of the top ten reasons cartoons get rejected by The New Yorker It occurs to me that many of the New Yorker rejects would find a perfectly respectable home in Playboy.


    12. New Yorker cartoons that are actually funny This is probably because they are a bit crude and easier to get Maybe I m just not sophisticated enough to like most the ones that actually make it into the Magazine.


    13. Volume 2 follows the same structure as Volume 1, but the new questionnaire form makes them dense and tedious so I skipped most of them I didn t think the cartoons were as funny either, and quite a few I just didn t get Still, an adequate coffee table or bathroom book.


    14. Absolutely hilarious collection of cartoons that were deemed unsuitable for The New Yorker Too racy, too politically incorrect, just too wrong But oh so funny This will be a great book to revisit whenever I need a good laugh.


    15. A holiday gift that I keep close by for those moments when I need a joke because what I m reading is way too bleak I don t believe that I could ever say that I ve finished this since I keep going back to the same cartoons when I need a lift.



    16. A great gifty book for anyone into New Yorker comics, this collection of their rejects from their regular contributors is dark, sexy and weird And Fun.



    17. Not bad New Yorker Cartoons, but cartoons that did not make it to the New Yorker for one reason or another he talks about it Roz Chast and others Good read.


    18. Same problem as Volume 1 just not that many funny cartoons Again, the questionnaires by the cartoonists are the best part.


    19. More hilarious cartoons that weren t quite right for the New Yorker, plus clever and interesting background info on the cartoonists such as photos of what s inside their respective fridges.





    20. I thought there d be new cartoonists, and or cartoons, but this was still entertaining to have nearby when I was sick.


    21. funny enough to make me an obnoxious coffee partner, not so funny that I couldn t get through several pages in a row without laughing.



    22. This book and its predecessor make me wish I d stuck with cartooning Sadly, I think the best of the rejected cartoons are far better than the ones actually accepted by The New Yorker.
