“I feel if something is worth saying, it’s worth saying funny.” —Bob Mankoff, How About Never–Is Never Good For You?
Truer words may never have been spoken—or in this case, drawn by Bob Mankoff, Cartoon Editor of The New Yorker magazine. An accomplished cartoonist, Bob has published four books of his own work. His latest book, How About Never–Is Never Good For You?, is a memoir of his life in cartoons. We were incredibly excited to have Bob visit us at Monkey headquarters to talk about his book, his work at The New Yorker and how SurveyMonkey is instrumental in the popular Cartoon Caption Contest that the magazine runs every week for readers and cartoon fans all over the globe.
Bob sat down with one of our marketing monkeys, Katie, to talk about why his job just may be the best, and how surveys play an important role in quantifying humor at the world’s most famous publisher of cartoons.
