Is the joke here that Popeye could have been used to sell spinach? Because, you know…

spinach.jpgI can, by the way, accept the fact that the girl has no idea about the Popeye/spinach connection because according to a scientific survey I conducted a few months ago, neither of my kids had even heard of Popeye.

A Bad Egg

Is there an actual play on words involved here, or is this simply a random, pointless, Dollyesque mispronunciation?

I’m fine until the final panel. The “bonus panel,” by the way, is just a drawing of 4 hats (though Picard thought he could see 5)

You mean that’s not the Tardis??

Somebody sent me this as a “Geezer” strip, and I wrote back no, even kids today know what a phone booth is, even if they’ve never used one. Then three or four other people sent me the same comic.

So was I wrong? Would a younger reader look at this and have no idea what’s being referred to?

James Schend: Perfect Strangers went off the air in, what, 1992? It’s not even in re-runs anywhere, as far as I’m aware. Granted, not as geezerly as most geezer strips, but still.
