I have always been a fan of the witty cartoons in The New Yorker. One of my favorite cartoons had a caption that read, "Of course you'll be depressed if you compare yourself with SUCCESSFUL people!."

In my own life, I have overheard humorous comments in conversations in the street that would belong nicely in a New Yorker cartoon. For example, here a two:

- "My life is the complete opposite to everything the word 'whatever' represents."

- "Sunglasses have been, like, my whole life."

The New Yorker has a searchable database of cartoons at their website, and of course I typed in the word 'piano' to see what I would find. A few of my favorites:

-Child to audience as he sits down at grand piano to begin concert: "And now, God help us all, Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto in c minor."

-Lounger sitting at the piano, to audience: "This song is very difficult for me emotionally. Plus, the chords are hard."

-Pianist to audience: "Hey, how about those darn Mets. But seriously, folks - Liszt's Sonata in b minor."

-Man who is standing naked in full frontal nudity says to woman who is lying in bed reading a book: "You liked it in 'The Piano.'"

Here is the link. Enjoy!

She was with me even in my grave
When the last of my friends turned away,
And she sang like the first storm heaven gave.
Or as if flowers were having their say.
