Up periscope


To set the record straight, the cartoon that ran in newspapers Easter Sunday was a repeat. I was feeling under the weather a few weeks back, and the nice folks at United Media chose that cartoon to rerun. So, if you didn’t like it, the nice folks at United Media get half the blame.

Someone mentioned that the raw-egg gag was funny in “Porky’s.” And in “Animal House,” I believe another said. I can’t comment, because I don’t remember the gag from either movie, but if the subtle implication is that I stole the joke from Hollywood, that is false. I never attended a grade-school Easter egg hunt that didn’t include a raw-egg ringer.
