Sunday Mailbag

November 21st, 2009 | Posted in Mailbag

Q: What happens when you are headed back from a trip to Australia and have absolutely no time, between packing and checking out and getting to the airport and going through security and customs and eventually getting all the way back to Minnesota, but you need to do a Sunday Mailbag blog post? Do you shamelessly cop out by posting a meaningless answer to a completely made up question, and even more shamelessly recycle a previously used gag?


Thanks to A.E. Neuman for the question. If you have a question you want answered for the mailbag about cartooning, illustration, MAD Magazine, caricature or similar, e-mail me and I’ll try and answer it here!

    But see, I was always wondering about the answer to that question, so thanks to Mr. Neuman for asking it. And as they say down under…No worries, mate. 🙂

  2. Mike Wade says:

    I have always (well, since 1960) appreciated Alfred’s knack for getting right to the point!

  3. Seth Wilks says:

    And more importantly, do you post it a day early?

  4. Shaun says:

    After reading the first line I thought the question was going in a different direction. More like “What happens when you are headed back from a trip to Australia and your plane is pulled off course and crashes on a mysterious island with polar bears…”
    I’d like to hear that answer!

  5. Lash LeRoux says:

    That clod stole my question!
