“Marsha!”, a New Yorker cartoon by Julia Suits

Ever been totally baffled by a cartoon in The New Yorker? Or do you like to feel smug in the knowledge that you understand some of the more mind boggling gags? Either way you may find the Cartoon I.Q. Test on their website useful.

Could the answer to this one be that the plug is shocked to see someone using a Type A socket with no ground slot, thus increasing the chances of an electrical fire? Or is it simply funny because it’s a talking plug? Either way, it’s definitely an “only in the New Yorker” type of cartoon.
