Every New Yorker Cartoon Can Solicit You for LinkedIn

The New Yorker's iconic single panel cartoons usually nail comedy with their single-line captions. They cover a vast variety of human experiences. But designer Frank Chimero argues that most if not all of them can be captioned with an automated email notification subject line that LinkedIn accounts send to people: "Hi, I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn."

For me, the Default New Yorker Cartoon caption should be "You know, this would make a pretty good New Yorker cartoon."

But then, the original caption for the one with the dogs, "On the internet, no one knows you're a dog", is also usable in a wide variety of contexts.

I deleted my LinkedIn account a couple of years ago, meticulously following their instructions for doing so. Yet I still get several of these invitations every day.
