* MemeticMutation:
** The phrase "[[http://www.thisdayinquotes.com/2010/03/back-to-old-drawing-board.html back to the old drawing board]]" originates with a 1941 Peter Arno cartoon from the magazine.
** "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/on-the-internet-nobody-knows-youre-a-dog On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog]]" comes from a 1993 Peter Steiner cartoon.
** In an episode of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', Elaine gets a job with ''The New Yorker'' after complaining that one of their cartoons doesn't make sense. When she tells Jerry, they parrot the magazine's then-slogan: "''The New Yorker''?" "Yes, ''The New Yorker''."
** In 2006 a blogger facetiously suggested that any ''New Yorker'' cartoon could be captioned with the phrase "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/christ-what-an-asshole Christ, what an asshole!]]" The expression has since become a standard rejoinder in online comments sections.
** In 2015, a designer suggested another "universal" caption: "[[https://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2015/09/a-new-universal-new-yorker-cartoon-caption-id-like-to-add-you-to-my-professional-network-linkedin/406783/ Hi, Id like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn]]."
