Dead tired of being healthy.

You have to love the New Yorker Magazine. Some of the finest and funniest illustrations are to be found within is covers. And speaking of covers, The New Yorker's covers offer sardonic, clever, sophisticated, thought-provoking, beautiful, odd, highly memorable and all around exceptional art by some of the greatest illustrators (long live the Art Speigelman years!!), serving up social and political commentary, pop-culture absurdity and everything in between. Trying to make sense of (or mock splendidly) our humanity The New Yorker does like no one else. The legendary covers are sought out and highly collectable (my father has just about every issue of the New Yorker since the 1960s) with original covers selling for steep prices; one can go the easier hobbyist route and buy reproductions from The New Yorker store and other sources; visit the New Yorker store online and you can buy prints of the cartoons and covers, with prices ranging anywhere from $49.00 to $900.00 or more.

 I just ruined the humor of a wordless post by writing about the magazine, but oh well.

One more thing...if properly prepared and baked kale chips are really quite good. Even if you are not a vegan hipster.
