Instagram’s Favorite New Yorker Cartoons of 2020 | The New Yorker


As I’m sure you know, this kind of bliss does get a bit tedious as time goes on—too much of a good thing makes Johnny a dull boy. So sometimes I crave something different. In these moments, I grab my cell phone and begin to look at various social-media sites. Instagram is one that I use in particular—I hear that it is quite popular. If you go to instagram dot com, you’ll see what I’m talking about. Images, more than any one person could possibly imagine, flood the senses! Any sensation of bliss is replaced with a rabid urge to scroll and see every last one. If you take a look, there are even a number of cartoons there! I’m told that it is part of “my job” to be “aware of this,” but in truth there’s excitement in discovering life’s little mysteries. I’ve even learned that the most popular cartoons we’ve posted on Instagram this year can be collected in one place, and enjoyed all at once! If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, you’re in for a treat. If you, like me, need a fun-filled break from the exalted state that this year has left you in, feast your eyes on the cartoons below.
