New Yorker cartoon

Oh, how I love the humor in the cartoons of the New Yorker!

You must have heard it before, when they say “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog” and I am always amused by it. 

Today I stumbled upon this saying in an article and decided to look it up: It’s a saying which actually began as a cartoon caption by Peter Steiner and published by The New Yorker on July 5, 1993.  A few years later, this was the magazine’s most reproduced cartoon and, at the time, it symbolized internet privacy and the ability of users to send and receive messages in general anonymity.
