Why you should go for the unattainable
Today I'm posting three cartoons that were on the bulletin board at my office for the 30+ years I worked in academia. They've yellowed and the paper is breaking down, so the best way to preserve them is digitally here. This first one probably was a Punch cartoon*, but the artist and publication information was trimmed off years ago.

*A hat tip to an anonymous reader for the following: "This is by J.B. "Bud" Handelsman, from his "Freaky Fables" series, which ran in Punch from the 70s to God knows when. Handelsman also drew for The New Yorker and Playboy, among other publications. One of my favourite cartoonists, he passed away in 2007."
