3. The third strip in today’s exhibition gives me an impression that BOZO was perhaps regarded by fans of the strips as an example of a transitional “missing-link” between the Monkey and the Human Being.
In strip #1, see panel #3.
In strip #3, panels 1, 2, and 3 give me a strong impression.
1 Suddenly Uncle Benny’s isn’t good enough?
2 No doubt the result of a well-timed bathroom break.
3 The squirrels are watering back!
1. This gotta fetch me a lotsa dough!
2. Hold this for me a moment will ya, pal? Heh heh.
3. Bozo discovers gravity but fails to recognise it.
I’m curious what he expected to happen in #3.
These comments are as funny as the strips themselves. Foxo Reardon would really have enjoyed them. Know I do. It’s great to start off the day laughing. Sets the mood for the whole day.
1. The bigger the lamp, the bigger the payout.
2. Here – Hold my mop!
3. The sky didn’t want to be watered.
1) Bigger is better for $$$ even though it is the city’s light.
2) Rich man is left holding the mop when 2 honeys walk by. Bozo’s own reputation is left intact when he left the mop.
3) Somehow Bozo missed the lecture on gravity. He blames the hose not himself.
1. Mr. Reardon used a bit of poetic license here. The sign actually says:
WE BUY OLD JUNK
WE SELL RARE ANTIQUES
2. Looks like Bozo’s stratagem has backfired. The secretaries seem quite impressed by the boss apparently making himself useful for a change.
3. Obviously the hose is defective. It’s not supposed to spray the user.
1. Hey buddy, got a light?
2. I shined your shoes the other day, now it’s payback time.
3. Gee, Umbrella Guy could have been helpful if he had come to the park today.
