    This is what happens when mother practices “physic surgery” on her daughter’s pet goose.

    Sorry about the intervention Sandy, but you said this would never happen again after “Last Summer.”

    Don’t you pay attention to the fables? You should have been satisfied with the golden eggs.

    Now remember ladies, using feathers in your strip show can be very kinky, but using the whole chicken is down right perverted.

    This is the way we pluck the goose, so early in the morning.

    Mason Williams had it all figured out years ago—in a poem called “Them Duck Pluckers” from a collection called “Them Poems”. Google it—and enjoy!

    Considering that this goose is very obviously dead, the concept of “volunteer” takes on a truly sinister tone.

    Dick: I tell you Tommy, you’re very glib.

    Tommy: I certainly do.

    Dick: Well here, I’ll tell you what my old man does.

    My old man’s a Cotton Pickin’ Finger Lickin’ Chicken Plucker,

    What do you think about that?

    http://hoocher.com/Eugene_de_Blaas/Eugene_de_Blaas.html 

    all have info about this artist (who I still believe died in 1931). So far, 15 works (16 times, including 1 repeat) by him have been used here. 

    http://www.gocomics.com/that-is-priceless/2018/12/03?comments=visible 

    has the prior work, like this, another of the several he did while in Venice:

    My comment at that prior strip pointed to that and the artist info URLs.

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #2093 (December 3, 2018) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment.

    One year, around 61 years ago, my uncle had us plucking a swan for Christmas dinner.

    “Umm, Mommy, when I said I wanted to play duck, duck, goose, I had a different game in mind. The game we play at school doesn’t include wringing necks and plucking carcasses.”
