    My animated feature is my nose. Wiggles and flares.
    My ears can only wiggle.

    yep, I liked the idea that facial features might be what she meant and that animating them would be like wiggling your nose.

    I refer to that particular section of the newspaper as the Educational section.

    “But they are cartoons!!”
    -
    By standard usage, a comic strip doesn’t move and a cartoon does.
    -
    Alternative usages allow you to interchange them. It looks like Trout did.
    -
    Well, actually comic strips aren’t even considered. The question is if there is a difference between animated features and cartoons and there is not other than in the elitiist usage.
    -
    Hence the humor.
    Same thing, different name.
