Okay, I never heard of a raccoon dog until recently.

Prepare to be grossed out and disgusted.

This link is All Bunk.

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a leftist.

Breaking news / bombshell / tipping point / the walls are closing in / the beginning of the end. That still makes me laugh.

Flogging someone with a dead pig really wasn’t my idea. Honest.

Pig Flogging

Dude’s strong as hell, but she’s still got the gun, and the Creepy Red Cabinet isn’t entirely innocent either. Who wears a turquoise jacket with yellow pants and blue shoes, anyway? I think that was her idea.

Nancy & Sluggo & Aunt Fritzi

Nancy & Sluggo Creepo

Ernie Bushmiller was one of the most surreal cartoonists of his time, and this is a good example. Nancy’s and Sluggo’s bodiless heads pop up from side-by-side Jack-in-the-Boxes without any indication of who or what flipped open the latches simultaneously or why.

Nancy’s parents never appeared in the comic and their absence was never explained; her only caretaker was her Aunt Fritzi.

Fritzi Ritz was once an elite party girl, a flapper, who predated the Nancy comics by a few years until Bushmiller took over the strip created by Larry Whittington in 1922.  Bushmiller modeled Fritzi after his own fiancée (according to Wiki) and Aunt Fritzi eventually served as Nancy’s benefactor and disciplinarian. We can assume that she recognized Nancy’s psychosis, even though Fritzi was not quaified to raise a child with mental troubles. Although not an ideal model for a young child, Fritzi did the best she could given the circumstances.

She must have got into Aunt Fritzi’s meds again.
