    I think the geese might be giving you a guilt trip. If even geese can get off their a$$ to fly south during the cold months (ex. Christmas time), why can’t you?

    You know what? While they’re there, they’ll probably even visit your grandparents!

    They’re your grandparents, for goodness sake! Come on!

    Geese fly south in the winter. What’s down south? Your grandparents! Because old people all move to Florida, at least for the winters.

    This is why grandparents are called geesers ?

    Old people used to move to Florida. Now they move to Arizona or North Carolina.

    My main reaction to that cartoon was, “man, some days cartoonists do NOT feel like drawing.”

    There’s a reason so many elderly folks are called snowbirds. They, like geese (and other birds) migrate south each winter, and each spring they fly north again. I think that’s all there is to this one.

    Classic New Yorker cartoon - designed to elicit not a laugh, but an “eh.”

    Kudos to Olivier [3] and agreement to Vulcan [8].

    I like to think the cartoons editor was sleeping at his desk, and the cartoonist quietly crept in with this drawing and just grabbed the “approved” stamp.

    Hey it took some effort to draw those hills.

    It’s a Chanukah cartoon. It’s in the New Yorker. As Jesse Jackson taught us, New York has many Jews. As Seinfeld taught us, old members of the tribe go to live in Florida. The geese are flying to Florida to visit your grandparents, since you can’t be bothered, they know you’re very busy, Mr. and Mrs. Bigshot. And that is the Miracle of Chanukah!

    @ Singapore Bill (12) - Considering the number of geese in the wedge, does that mean that the leader is actually the “shamash“?

    @Kilby (12) Great minds thinking alike.

    None of my grandparents - or since we were just talking about same here - great grandparents - even went to Florida. New Jersey or the Catskills was about as far as anyone went.
