Cartoon By Dave Coverly

Many magazines are informative, insightful, even important, but only one is absolutely essential to understanding the human condition in this postmodern era. That magazine is, of course, Funny Times.

A Peek Inside the Issue


A child seeking candy from a gumball machine; on top of the machine, a piñata sits reading a newspaper as if he's on the toilet.
Piñata hanging on tree next to a bored looking dog, saying "oh, you know, same ol' same ol'... just hanging around waiting till the kids arrive and then get bashed repeatedly, etc etc." Caption reads "pinyada-yada-yada"
young children playing with a piñata. One kid says "remember, pretend it's the patriarchy"
Two piñatas with bats in their mouths at a party scene. The caption reads "it's party time, amigo."
A piñata on a leash hides shyly behind its owner, while a kid reaches out to touch it. The caption says "sorry, he has this thing against children."
Two birds sit at their birdhouse, which is hanging next to a colourful piñata. The bird says "it's nice but I'm a little concerned about location..."
A piñata angrily confronts a man smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer, saying "who you callin' a candyass?"
Two piñatas sit at a restaurant table looking over menus; the caption reads "I'm torn between teh Chargrilled Mackerel with Sweet and Sour Beetroot and the Candy"
A bunch of guys in togas, one blindfolded and holding a knife, lunge toward a piñata that is shaped like Caesar.

Wait, I know. Hipster coffee bars with AI baristas.” “No, it’s food trucks. Now what’s the main difference between a food truck and a restaurant?” “The brake pedal? The turn signals?” “It’s that it can travel anywhere that there might be a crowd to feed; outdoor concerts, parties, craft fairs, or farmer’s markets. Now tell me what’s the biggest problem with bars and taverns?” “All the drunks who hang out at them?” “Close. It’s all the drunks who drive home at night. But what if they didn’t need to drive home?”
