Nancy: Aunt Fritzi--May I eat a jelly bean?
Aunt Fritzi: O.K.---Just one. Are you sure you're only eating ONE?
Nancy: Yes, ma'm, I'm eating ONE.
Box reads: JELLY BEANS
Nancy strikes again! Never had a taste for jelly beans myself.
obeying the spirit of the law if not the actual letter of it!
Nancy is a very clever little girl….
Bushmillers’s Classic Nancy Aug 13, 2019, depicts Nancy and Aunt Fritiz the way I remember. Olivia Jaimas Aug 13, 2019, on the other hand appears to bring them both down. Fritiz looks old bags under her eyes and worn out. Nancy mean with a scow and fat face (like she has the mumps), always.
I remember one where Nancy asked Fritzi for a slice of double layer cake with chocolate icing. Fritzi says just one slice and Nancy took the whole top layer off for her one slice.
Hah! This is a more accurate (IMO) use of the commercial phrase “You can’t each just one!” (Old Lays Potato Chip phrase.) Jelly beans…. mmm.
1- You know who loved jelly beans? Ronnie Reagan. 2- Yes. I’m surprised you know that. What else do you know about him? 3- I know how many terms he SHOULD’VE served. Poor old guy…
Reminded of this morning’s Jack Benny episode on WMKV – Mary ordered him a birthday cake with 39 candles arranged as a question mark.
This IS Nancy….the new stuff isn’t….it’s time to retire Nan…..
What a little stinker.
