I've been reading those for some time now on Slam. While I think the artwork is really well done, I just don't ever find the jokes funny.

Maybe it's just me...

I should hope not. MacNelly's been dead since 2000.

(I know, I know... cheap.)

Seriouly, though, while I have no problem with the artwork, I share Bulldog's verdict on the content. I guess it's just very very "editorial cartoon." That genre of cartooning seems to stress the obvious and easily intepreted over more abstract or more moving. I look at these cartoons and am never surprised by what I see. Wrestling is so absurd on its own that the opportunities for satire, parody and surreal images are pretty vast. It's a shame that she doesn't break out of the strictures of her regular job and exploit the opportunities that goofball wrestling provides.
