    That phrase was part of a bus ad for a Dr. Hiss, a Long Beach podiatrist, ca 1956. I’d see it on the bus to Hebrew School.

    I used to walk to Hebrew School, almost 60 years ago, where we ate cherry-jam and Cheddar cheese sandwiches, before my bar-mitzvah lesson. Why can I remember that but not what I had for breakfast this morning?

    You only THINK you can remember it. In actuality, you can’t, but your brain is trying to comfort you with heart-warming made-up “memories”.

    No… I clearly remember the cherry-jam… For years I couldn’t eat it again, because of the cherry skin, in the jam.

    I saw another version of this cartoon; possibly by the Bliss. Pallbearers were carrying a casket, and one says to the other,“He said his feet were killing him, but no one believed it.”

    “John Buck” sounds like a name you’d use in a limerick.

    Wasn’t John Buck the young stud from Midnight Cowboy?
    I just can’t figure out the reference to feet…

    It was Joe Buck. And there was his pimp (read: “manager”) played by Dustin Hoffman.

    The best known John Buck was the Hall of Fame sportscaster (Jack Buck), but the dates are wrong.

    Joe Buck was the stud in Midnight Cowboy.

    Long Beach, California? Or another Long Beach? I believe there is one in New York.
