    Because he doesn’t bat an eye at the hare, the dormouse or the oddly proportioned hatter? Seems like a lot of Wilson’s cartoons have the humor almost all in the art.

    Alice is over 100 years old, but her borogoves are all mimsy.

    Yikes! Where did you learn such slithy, manxome language, Mr. Pollock?

    Obscure. But The mad hatter told her to celebrate unbirthdays because you get more of them (unfortunately it was Alice’s birthday). Alice spends much of the book frustrated not knowing how she can determine who she is much less her age so being asked for proof would be very irritating?

    I got nothing.

    unlike being a Victorian nude model and drug culture icon, barhopping is not allowed for a 10-year-old.

    The reason it had to be a tea party?

    Alice, a Mad Hatter, a March Hare, and a Doormouse walk into a bar …

    It’s Gahan Wilson. Sometimes surreality is enough.

    Do they serve mushrooms?

    “unlike being a Victorian nude model and drug culture icon, barhopping is not allowed for a 10-year-old.”

    The nude model was Alice’s older sister, and she was 14.

    Because after poppin’ mushrooms and drinking potions, it’s funny that she’s being carded for simple beer? IDK.

    I was thinking along the lines of a tea party that escalated. Alice said “Enough of the damn tea. Let’s head to the bar”!

    I think Mark M @ 12 gave me the clue needed for it to be funny
    (at least for me).

    If you recall, Alice didn’t manage to get any tea at the tea
    party. She was offered wine, but there wasn’t any, so she
    didn’t get any of that, either. So they go to a bar (pub?) and
    she STILL can’t get anything to drink.

    “Alice, a Mad Hatter, a March Hare, and a Doormouse walk into a bar …”

    Alice asks for a beer and the bartender says, ‘Eat me!’
