Comic Footnotes



Another favorite comic named Whizzit never fails to amuse.  By the looks of the hat and undershirt we’re still in 1953.  Of course this fits in perfectly with a comic universe made up of Beetle Bailey1, Hi and Lois2, Blondie3, Archie4, Dennis the Menace5, Grin and Bear It6, Family Circus7.  Shall we continue?  Ok, Broom Hilda8, Marmaduke9,Barney Google10


1) Beetle Bailey was my favorite Beatle.  Much better drummer than Ringo

2) There’s actually a book of the “Best” of Hi and Lois.  I dare you to buy it.  Or read it cover to cover.

3) Hitler’s Dog.

4) Hitler’s God.

5) ibid

6) op cit

7) Who fucked barfy up the butt? Not Me!

8 ) This is not in Jest, what kind of Broom did Hilda Ride?a

9) Marmapuke.

10) At least he had a technically modern name.  What’s it called when Barney Googles himself?



a) A Broom of the System.
