    “I dunno, Doc. Lemme try it and — Ugh, it tastes awful! Whoa! My arms are suddenly twice as big!”

    I’d be willing to guess there are cats at the man’s job, and some of them are pretty cool.

    My boys are accepting their new food, but now there’s something else that puzzles me. I have food dish for them with two sides. I put food in both sides. But the cats only want to eat from the left side. I’ll put food out for them, go to bed, and, when I get up the next day, the left side of the bowl has been licked clean, while the right side has barely been touched. I can switch the sides around, and fill up the empty side, but it’s still the left side that they prefer. I have yet to figure this out.

    Instead of golden parachutes, Poppins ties umbrella to their hands and calls up a strong wind to blow upper management away.

    Again, ever since they began in the 1890s, comic strips have had political elements. “Hogan’s Alley,” which starred The Yellow Kid, had frequent references to Tammany Hall. “Li’l Abner,” “Pogo,” and lots of others took jabs at our “leaders.” (“Pogo” famously made fun of Senator Joe McCarthy.) If a comic strip gets too many political comments I don’t like, I simply skip the comments. But if you read the comics to escape politics, you’re looking at the wrong medium.

    I had the original “Mary Poppins” soundtrack album. On that, the word was spelled supercalifragilisticexpialiDOCUS. Years later, I accepted a challenge to spell for the seventh and eighth grade class I taught in Nevada. They used a collection of Disney music a friend had given me to check the spelling. That’s when I learned the spelling had been changed. (Though the newer spelling makes a little more sense phonetically.) And I’m amazed spellcheck hasn’t tried to play with the word.
