This one has a rhyme pattern similar to Ogden Nash (especially in his later years as his rhyme became more and more of a stretch). It also has a Dr. Seuss feel to it with all the made up animal names. Normally I’d say perhaps this strip influence both of those, but the birth dates don’t line up, as both of them were born right around this time, and would not have read the strep in infancy!
If there is a book with all of these comics, I’ll buy it…..
Interesting sloth-like design for the Tappar there.
Recently read of somebody who freed a genie and their first wish was that it would be bad at math. “OK, nine wishes to go!”
