That Media Mob sure knows how to have fun on a Friday afternoon! The Daily Transom posts this fun New Yorker cartoon inspired by MB founder, cyberhostess and legendary boa-wearer Laurel Touby. Extra-fun link: “Related: Laurel Touby uses her boa as a magic sapphic lasso,” which just tripled attendance at Mediabistro parties.

Update: A reader has since pointed out that it is unclear that Tom Scocca did not draw the cartoon, merely the caption (and Laurel’s signature rectangular glasses). The cartoon was the New Yorker caption contest entry for the week and was drawn by the talented Matthew Diffee.
