Will Shortz’s 16th Anniversary at the NYT

November 21, 2009

Late Friday afternoon, I decided to make up this cartoon to put in the N.Y.T. Saturday Wordplay post, but got cold feet thinking some readers might take it the wrong way — what with Will being set up for a bashing by our little, boxy friends. I didn’t want the headache of having to explain. In any event, Will loved it, so I’ve decided to put it up here. Photo courtesy of Joshua Sheldon.

Coming across this old, unpublished cartoon in my files, it struck me that those who solve the print version of the Sunday NY Times might enjoy it.

I’m rerunning this cartoon from last September because of a recent comment left by Brendan Pimper on the original strip. He had this very thing (the 2nd panel) happen to him on a show that aired March 18. The video of the show can be seen here, thanks to Nancy Shack: part 1 and part 2. Read the rest of this entry »
