That's $50,000 A Leg

Mark Anderson linked to an article about Matthew Diffee, a New Yorker cartoonist. Lots of interesting bits, but the one that caught my eye was this:

[Sam] Gross sold one cartoon to the former National Lampoon magazine 35 years ago, and its resale has since earned him $100,000. The cartoon: A couple in a restaurant sits near a sign that says frogs legs are the special. The kitchen doors swing open and out rolls a legless little frog pushing himself in a sort of frog wheelchair.

Frogs. Always ready to sacrifice for the cartoonist.
