Kanye, Copyright and New Yorker Cartoons

You saw this, right? (Huffington Post)

James Thurber's Seal Barks and Kanye West's Tweets united in holy matrimony by some comedians named Paul and Storm.

The funniest thing to happen to New Yorker cartoons since the advent of the Anti-Caption contest. Or maybe ever.

Everyone's saying how funny it is but no one is saying why. When I am choking to death laughing it has something to do with the WASP-y asshole privilege lampooned in the original cartoons mirroring the hip-hop asshole privilege of the tweets . . .
