Leo Cullum was a giant among New Yorker cartoonists, publishing 819 cartoons in the magazine from 1977 to the time of his untimely death in 2010. In his obituary, the New York Times observed his penchant for "blustering businessmen" and we're lucky to have this fine sample, published on June 10, 1996.
