I cringed when I saw this was one of the suggested captions for the weekly New Yorker cartoon contest. Then it won.
Gawker’s Adrian Chen had a field day with it:
Look, we’re all post-racial liberal elites here who love us some New Yorker cartoons. But we can’t help but think this week’s winner of the cartoon caption contest is a bit offensive. …
Here are a few other hilarious captions we imagine must have almost made the cut:
* Uh oh, Gov. Paterson is trying to tax their cigarettes again!
* Quick, have the federal government wage a decades-long campaign of genocide and displacement against them!
* Dang redskins tryin’ to steal my Blackberry!
