Mr. Elinoff: Miss Benes, cartoons are like gossamer, and one doesn't dissect gossamer.
Elaine Benes: Well, you don't have to dissect it if you could just tell me why this is supposed to be funny.
Mr. Elinoff: Oh, it's merely a commentary on contemporary mores.
Elaine Benes: But what is the comment?
Mr. Elinoff: It's a slice of life.
Elaine Benes: No, it isn't.
Mr. Elinoff: A pun?
Elaine Benes: I don't think so.
Mr. Elinoff: Vorshtein?
Elaine Benes: That's not a word. You have no idea what this means.
Mr. Elinoff: No.
Elaine Benes: Then why did you print it?
Mr. Elinoff: I like the kitty.
