Here before you is a comic strip with a distinguished really long lineage. It has been rejected by some of the most storied syndicate editors in comic strip history– or at least I assume it has; I’ve got a pile of letters with their signatures on ’em.

These are, of course, not the same strips originally submitted. They’re New & Improved, Subtext Fortified and have a day’s supply of Stupid Facial Expressions. Enjoy ’em with milk, or straight out of the box. But don’t try and duplicate the antics empictured. These characters are professionals.

Thank you.
