thank you, Charlie Brown, for unwillingly volunteering for the demonstation
Find the coin that hit you and buy candy with it, CB. And don’t share. That way revenge will be sweet.
Rare to see CB eyeballs.
This simply doesn’t make any cents!
That would have been painful, since “mad money” for these kids back then would have been coins, and definitely NOT folding money… ;-)
‘…sugar and spice, and everything nice…’
Would kids today know what “mad money” was (or is)?
first reaction, no. but i think by the time you hit late teens, maybe. i would like to do a survey on old sayings
WHAT THE HECK PATTY?!
WAM!! Walking Around Money.
…and a brick.
I think this is funny but nowadays it would be considered some form of physical abuse. And you surely could not show a boy hitting a girl! There would be an uproar by the easily-offended.
This strip made me think of a Garrison Keillor column in which he wrote about what strikes us as funny—and not. Playing old Laurel and Hardy films for what he thought would be the delight of his 7-year-old daughter, she winced every time Ollie hit Stan with something. When Stan was whacked in the head with a frying pan his daughter winced again, turned to her father and said: “Not Funny!”
Yeah, somebody smack me in the head with a purse, I’d be pretty mad….
Always carry a dime in your penny loafers.
Still more sexist stereotypes. Will they never end?
Take this. No I’ll keep it.
Poor Charlie Brown – with friends like that, who needs enemies?
A curious interpretation of things.
