with thanks to John McCrarey

John McCrarey emailed me the following cartoon, which he'd seen on Facebook:

This may not be genteel enough for the New Yorker. (And shouldn't there be a comma after "Yes"? Maybe not: I'm guessing this is British English, based on the use of single quotes for the main dialogue and double quotes around "street." UK English is notoriously comma-averse. Then again, the final period is inside the quotation mark, which is more US style—or is it? It's all very confusing.)
