Early Computer “Humor”

I found this the other day while browsing an old magazine and thought I would post it. This is a good example of the filler you would find in computer magazines, especially as you got closer to the end of the magazine. I am not sure that this is meant to be laugh out loud funny, but maybe to an unjaded new computer user hungry for humor, this would give them a chuckle.


I can’t make out the artist or I would look them up and try to see what they have been up to since this panel was published back in 1982.
