In honor of today’s holiday (eh?)–that’s right, Canada Day!–we’ve assembled a small gaggle of geese for your viewing pleasure. Oh, and they happen to be courtesy of our very own Matthew Diffee, New Yorker cartoonist and editor of the forthcoming The Best of the Rejection Collection. One of these cartoons made it into the New Yorker, but the other, having been rejected, will be featured in the book, branded with the “Too Difficult to Get” stamp (although we think it’s pretty darn hilarious…). So, happy Canada Day to you!
Bonus points if, while you’re reading this post, you’re a) playing hockey, b) eating Canadian bacon, c) taking your flock of geese for a waddle, d) thinking about reading the complete works of Avery (one-quarter Canadian!) on the Workman blog, or e) [insert alternate Canadian stereotype here]. If you can send proof that you’re doing all of these things while reading this post, we will send you a signed copy of The Best of the Rejection Collection on publication.
