Literal New Yorker cartoon captions

In the vein of literal videos, Garfield Minus Garfield, and Christ, What an Asshole comes The Monkeys You Ordered, a blog that takes the dry, clever, and/or inscrutable punchlines of New Yorker cartoons and makes them straightforward, and therefore somehow much more hilarious. Which stands to reason, when you think about it: Aren’t talking animals in bars, explosions in board rooms, pirates on analysts’ couches and so on weird enough as it is?

I like the simpleness of the cartoon. In my office it’s more like getting dragged into a pointless conversation with the lady next to the copy machine everyday.
