Carl Fink sent me this with the comment:

I know the song “Girl from Ipanema” but I didn’t associate it with its Brazilian composer, because I’m not a jazz or bossa nova fan. I’ve really only heard various cover versions. I don’t know that I had ever heard of Jobim and I’m a 55-year-old who likes the song. Would anyone under 40 who isn’t a music nut have a chance?

Jobim died in 1994. I had to look up “Jobim” to figure out what the heck was going on, though I could guess once I figured out the not-very-close song lyric parody.

“Didn’t we just run a Girl from Ipanema comic here?” sez I.

“Yes,” sez he, and he reminded me by sending me this link. Which is also a Loose Parts strip, which suggests that Dave Blazek really does like the song.
