Cartoon Off: Randall Munroe (xkcd) vs Farley Katz (The New Yorker)

Farley Katz challenges Randall Munroe to a cartoon off: as expected, hilarity ensues.

The Rules—each contender is to draw:

  • The Internet, as envisioned by the elderly.
  • String Theory.
  • 1999.
  • Your favorite animal eating your favorite food.

In the obligatory post-contest interview:

Cartoon Lounge: Tell us a little bit about yourself and xkcd.

Randall Munroe: Well, I draw xkcd, a webcomic about stick figures who do math, play with staple guns, mess around on the Internet, and have lots of sex. It’s about three-fourths autobiographical.
