This Day at the New Yorker

December 8



Humorist James Thurber was born on this day in 1894 in Columbus, Ohio.

One of the most famous New Yorker cartoons was published on this day in 1928 by cartoonist Carl Rose with a caption by E. B. White.
In the cartoon, a mother at dinner says to her young daughter, "It's broccoli, dear." Her daughter answers, "I say it's spinach, and I say the hell with it."
