All:  a new cartoon has been added to our "more recent" cartoons page.
Go to
http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/plc/clpp/images/cartoons/morerecent/index.html to
see this one.  This issue of "Barney and Clyde" relies on
the fact that some Americans, especially New Yorkers, make a three-way
distinction between 'Mary, marry', and 'merry' whereas others only have a
2-way distinction, or no distinction.  This cartoons frequently relies on
linguistic data for its humor; today's cartoon in this series is another
example.
