The cure for a hard day at work? Laughing about it, of course.

“Ms. Martin, I’ve been meaning to have a little chat with you about your cubicle addition.”


“…and all those opposed to my idea signify by saying ‘I resign.’”


“The good news, Harcourt, is that I don’t know what I’d do without you around here—the bad news is that I’m about to find out.”


“We’ll add extra to your severance package if you promise to go work for our competition.”


“How long have you been working here, Gilbert?” “Since I heard you coming down the hall!”


“So this is hell? It looks just like my old office.”


“You put me in charge of employee morale. If you take away everyone’s million-dollar bonus, it’s going to undo everything I’ve accomplished!”

  1. David, you mean the funny little group of cartoon people usually laughing and smiling that were always at the top next to the POST SCRIPTS title, right? I never knew who drew them before.

    It looks like Henry Syverson passed away in 2007. They were in the magazine from mid-century until the 2000’s I think, then disappeared. I have some issues from 1962 when the Post did several pages of cartoons for awhile, and they’d tell you to turn the page at the bottom. It would be fun to see them again at the top of the online cartoon page each week, as the feature’s signature!

  2. How about drawings by Henry Syverson? Years ago we fought in order to read the S.E.P. first

    And the first page was always the POST SCRIPT page with a drawing/cartoon by Henry Syverson
