    Mr. Singh isn’t the first Indian to rip off Gene Kelly; see Raj Kapoor’s Shree 420.

    He also ripped off Charlie Chaplin in that movie

    So who else saw the punchline coming from about the second panel?

    There isn’t a smile on his face, either.

    I think if Gene Kelly (1912-1996) were still alive, he might get a laugh at this.

    OK, the classic 1952 Gene Kelly film is the first one most are likely to think of in association with this song. But a second film, from 1971 , also used it to great effect. Remember?

    Mr. Singh’s turban might be a sign that when he’s Singh Inn in the rain it’s a Songh, Sungh, Blue.

    Funniest part to me is that Singh is pronounced like “sigh” and the whole pun falls

    Ease off Cartoon-Boy, Rat. Not every pun is worth the effort to beat the stuffings out of him, and this was one of his blander, more excusable concoctions. Maybe next time we’ll make him singh for his supper! —Though I really hate the idea of stuffing Mr. Singh into an oven….

    When the inn was open did they let the kids play hide and go Sikh?

    Anyone who doesn’t find this amazing pun funny might as well be SIGHING in the rain.
