XKCD Invited To New Yorker "Cartoon-Off"

kdawson posted more than 5 years ago | from the no-raptors dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 231

UnknowingFool writes "Farley Katz, who draws for New Yorker magazine, ran into xkcd.com's Randall Munroe in a grocery store. He challenged Munroe to a cartoon-off — each cartoonist to produce drawings about the Internet as envisioned by the elderly, String Theory, 1999, and one's favorite animal eating one's favorite food. In the ensuing short interview, Munroe describes XKCD as 'a webcomic about stick figures who do math, play with staple guns, mess around on the Internet, and have lots of sex. It's about three-fourths autobiographical.'"

They are both funny, the only difference is the target audience. We happen to be the target audience of xkcd, and that is why Munroe is famous on slashdot and Katz is a cartoonist for the New Yorker.

True, but none of the new yorker's comments are *ever* funny. Katz gets some credit for knowing his audience. That in mind, I thought Munroe's last comic (without the text blurb) belonged in the New Yorker more than any of the other submissions. I call a draw. (Though I'd rather, and do read XKCD 99.99999% more than TNY).

KingSkippus (799657) | more than 5 years ago | (#25425443)

Meh, neither one of them really made me laugh, though the hyperbondage one made me giggle a little.

It's hard to spontaneously be funny about something specific at any given time. Well, unless you're Robin Williams, in which case it's easy. But you get my point. I don't think that improvisation is either one of their strong suit, but given some time to let something come to them, and the freedom to draw about whatever neurons happen to be firing in their brain at the time... That's when the funny happens. (As witnessed by the copies of xkcd hanging on my cube wall, to the delightful reaction of people walking by, staring for a few seconds, and saying, "huh?")

Improvisational comedy can be hilarious. Improvisational comic-drawing, not so much, at least by these artists.

How about the fact that that mistake could ruin his political career (in Vermont, at least). [wikipedia.org]

During the televised debate, Tuttle asked a series of humorous local knowledge questions rather than political questions. McMullen was unable to correctly pronounce the names of several Vermont towns, or correctly answer Fred's question "How many teats a Holstein got?," answering "Six", instead of the correct "Four". In the primary, Tuttle defeated McMullen by ten percentage points. Winning the primary with 55 percent of the vote, Tuttle promptly endorsed the incumbent Democrat, Patrick Leahy.

In his defense, I have seen cows with 6 teats before. They were small and non functioning, but it had them.

But that's what comes from working on a dairy farm. You're bound to end up seeing freak teats eventually.

Katz vs Munroe? (5, Insightful)

fishinatree (1368937) | more than 5 years ago | (#25425659)

While XKCD is my favorite webcomic that I've been following for quite a long time, I have to admit that Munroe's humor lies more in his ability to crack inside jokes with the nerd in all of us. Katz tries to appeal to the more general public (it's his job at the New Yorker). I think Munroe is funnier, especially here, but his esoteric humor might lose some votes.

Re:Katz vs Munroe? (4, Insightful)

gad_zuki! (70830) | more than 5 years ago | (#25425909)

Humor needs to be esoteric. There needs to be a pause between seeing the joke and getting the joke.

Katz's work is painfully obvious and looks like something out of a "cartooning 101" workshop. A drunk scientist? A cow biting itself? Those are hackneyed jokes!

My understanding is that the new yorker has this reputation for cartoons so bad that the audience has learned to love their badness. Well, theyre still terrible to me.

Re:Katz vs Munroe? (1)

fishinatree (1368937) | more than 5 years ago | (#25425985)

I agree. It's just that esoteric humor can lose some people, which I think is why XKCD hasn't reached the level of popularity as, say Cyanide and Happiness. "New Yorker" humor isn't really humor at all. They're just comfort-cartoons, pictures that people expect to see in the New Yorker because they "belong" there, not because they're funny. I miss James Thurber...

Re:Katz vs Munroe? (3, Interesting)

physicsphairy (720718) | more than 5 years ago | (#25425953)

Inside jokes are still funnier, IMHO. The best jokes are those that have the most surprising punchlines, or engage the maximum of brain activity (while still being decipherable). Personally, I think an unfamiliar academic context goes a long way toward supporting both of those concepts. Actually, a lot of my esoteric science knowledge originally came from researching jokes at the infamous http://www.xs4all.nl/~jcdverha/scijokes/index.html [xs4all.nl] and I remember a lot of those being hilarious well before I had proper context for wholly understanding them. And nowadays I find Dinosaur Comics brilliant, seemingly component to my utter unfamiliarity with the field of linguistics, which Ryan North frequently refers to.

Admittedly, maybe that isn't true for everyone. But for me, anyway, the least funny humorists are always those that condescend or use humorous tropes that have already been done to death. I'd always rather have someone joking way over my head than at the level where I can figure out the punchline before I even hear it.

Not news. We already know xkcd is funny and the New Yorker isn't. Dinosaurs in 1999 B.C.? Is this guy some kind of unfunny creationist?

XKCD (2, Interesting)

I'm a huge XKCD fan, but out of these 8 strips, it might be a reach to call 2 funny. I think they both failed.

What I'd have preferred instead of arbitrary subjects that intrinsically aren't funny, is for them to play off each other. One writes a comic of their choosing that fits within their comic idiom. The next plays directly off that comic trying to top if, within their idiom.

The back and forth would likely be much better.

The Internet, as envisioned by the elderly. KATZ
String Theory. MUNROE
1999. MUNROE
Your favorite animal eating your favorite food. KATZ

Katz cheated on 1999 and Munroe cheated on animal eating.

Munroe's elderly comic makes no sense. Katz actually pulls an XKCD-like description with the Venn Diagrams.

Finally, both string theory entries were funny (Katz more understandably so) but Munroe's entry was more original.

Thus, a tie.

Anyone who thinks different can suck my cock.

I agree with you entirely, but can I still suck your cock?

Well, that's one way to finally get someone to suck your cock. The other may be to move out of your parents basement.

Munroe's elderly comic makes GREAT sense, but you have to get the in-joke. Have you seen the comic captioned "on the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog"? And if so, what magazine do you think it first appeared in? I thought it was the best one of all of them, with so many delicious levels of irony and meta-references.

It's disturbing that all you have to do to turn me on is draw a stick figure and put long hair on it.

I wonder what the minimum figure is that could still accomplish this.
