Kanye West Tweets paired with New Yorker Cartoons

Paul Sabourin, co-comedian in the musical comedy duo Paul and Storm, has started substituting New Yorker cartoon captions with recent Kanye West Twitter tweets – often with very funny results.

urlesque.com interviewed Paul in the motives and inspiration between the mashups.

The pretentious explanation: Kanye’s tweets are more or less raw id (unfiltered, portraying base emotions and simple thoughts) and New Yorker cartoons are almost entirely superego (carefully considered, ‘quiet’ presentation).

The simple explanation: it just struck me as funny at 3 a.m. Luckily, unlike most 3 a.m. inspirations, this one actually seems to hold up.

You can see a large sample of the tweet-toons over on buzzfeed.com.
