James Thurber Cartoon: “I’m So Glad You’re a Writer…”

While doing research for the Give A Lick: Literary Postage Stamps – Humorists Ogden Nash and James Thurber post,  I wanted to share with you some of Thurber’s cartoons. However, I thought it would get lost in the middle of the philately*.

So, as an added Friday Fun! bonus…

Here’s the “I’m so glad you’re a writer — I’m just full of themes and ideas” cartoon for your enjoyment.
