Wish You Were Here, from an Anonymous Rube Goldberg Copyist

This is another of my Foolish Questions postcards produced to fool buyers into thinking they were getting a real Rube Goldberg production. The art and gag does pretty good justice to the verisimilitude of the fake, but the artist always seems to  leave a clue  -- here the dog and the face of the questioner just don't look like Goldberg's work to me.

Thanks to Evan Schad, we now know that G&B is Gartner & Bender out of Chicago.


"Wish you were here"
Glad I'm not, you take care there in the penisula!
