    I’ll bet they didn’t get sent to the principal’s office about argumentatively complaining about not being able to draw a cow’s leg either.

    Sorry, but I’m unfamiliar with McKuen. Why couldn’t it be Jackson Pollock?

    Because Sally’s example is even more off-base than that, so it makes for the better joke at the end. Rod McKuen wasn’t a painter like Picasso or Pollock. He was a poet, singer, and songwriter. Of course he couldn’t draw a cow’s leg! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjrmM2_rrbPAhUj44MKHfphBuoQFggcMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FRod_McKuen&usg=AFQjCNEQuFMpNVXhADRefvSorMcvCadoRA&sig2=op03ABwZFCVgg1LwPzP3Hg&bvm=bv.134495766,d.cGc

    “Sorry, but I’m unfamiliar with McKuen…”

    Many apologies that you’re unfamiliar with the material. Next time we’ll have Schulz check with you first and try to come up with something that we’re sure you’ll find uproariously funny.

    This one’s particularly dated.

    McKuen was titled as “The Poet Laureate of San Francisco”. He had a pretty good voice in his younger days. Later, Glenn Yarborough sang the songs he wrote. I doubt he ever gave drawing cow’s legs a try.

    How the heck would a little girl know who Rod Mckuen is…I dont know about art, but I do have a lot of his books and records….Wow, that is really digging up the long long past…He was great….

    Actually, Picasso is on record as stating when watching some little kids drawing: “At their age, I could draw like Rafaello…it took me thirty years to learn to draw like them.”

    If the principal can’t draw, he doesn’t have a cow’s leg to stand on!

    I met Rod McKuen here in Boston 33 years ago. He even gave me an autographed book of his poems, and we stayed in touch for several years until I relocated. RIP.

    Normal first graders wouldn’t even know anything about Rod McKuen OR Pablo Picasso.

    Well that was uncalled for. Do you do that to everyone who might not be familiar with an individual named in this or any other strip?

    I was trying to think of a contemporary celebrity poet/writer who’d fill the bill in an updated strip.

    Couldn’t think of any contemporary poets.

    Thoughts?

    You know, instead of complaining about an artistic decision Schultz did decades ago, you could have simply done a Google search about that person.

    What was THAT all about? It’s common for readers to be unfamiliar with a topic within a comic and to ask for a little help. It is rude to insult them.
