Barry Blitt’s cover illustration on the latest New Yorker has a great twist. Not sure I understand the connection exactly, but when I read the title, it still made me laugh out loud. It’s called: “OctoRush.”

Nice job on the cigar, by the way, as well as the centered crotch shot with the balloon jammies.
