    Zonker said “once and awhile” a few other times, I think. Just Zonker being Zonker?

    When Charlie Brown couldn’t play, and Linus took over, the team went on a brief winning streak. Lucy told Charlie Brown: “Don’t let your team down by showing up!” (Or maybe it was Violet.) And of course, they had a two-game winning streak when the other teams forfeited. Linus: “Wow, one more forfeit and we’ll be in first place!” Later, they won when Rerun played and was so little he was walked every time, including walking with the bases loaded to win. But Rerun bet on the game so the commissioner of the league made them forfeit it. Probably a few other examples.

    Disneyfication is always pretty creepy. (Check out “Lio” today for a quick anti-Disney chuckle!)

    Shovel off two buffaloes but don’t soil yourself the hole time!
    (By the way, plenty of conservatives have or do smoke pot. Which all intelligent people know, no matter their degree. I never did myself, though.)

    Did the paper bag over the head thing originate with the New Orleans Aints way back when? I’ve never been sure who first came up with it.

    Let’s see…..loved “A Tale of Two Cities”, finally read (and enjoyed!) all ten thousand pages of “War and Peace”, read “The Odyssey” numerous times in different translations, and thought “Silas Marner” had a few moments. Never read anything at all by Hugo, though, and I’ve heard “Moby Dick” has long chapters of excruciating minutiae which is why I’ve never tried it. My favorite two books all time: “Huck Finn” and “Catch 22.”

    The Spies almost never did any spying, far too intent on killing each other in various hilarious ways. Once in a while one would steal phony “top secret documents”, true, but that was always just bait for the trap. For some reason I always rooted for the Black Spy.
