  1. I JUST LOVE THIS EACH WEEK END. I ALREADY GET THE MAGAZINE BUT THESE OLD JOKES ARE SO GOOD TO BAD YOU DO NO T PUT THEM IN THE MAG. I’M NINETY AND HAVE A HARD TIME READING ANY MORE BUT I NEVER MISS THIS ON THE COMPUTER ON SATURDAY.

  2. There are many more of these wonderful cartoons that are unmatchable. They are not of the same quality as these archives. They are priceless. Is there a book of Cartoons that is published by Saturday Evening Post?
