Ignatz was first disdaining the advertised job of “brick hand”, but according to the printed subhead “Ignatz Will Love His Work” he does get employment at the Kelly brick yard. What accomplished this turnaround? Was it seeing Krazy Kat working there in panel 3? Will he be a “brick hand” or something else?
Maybe some answers are contained in the dialog written under the entrance archway in panel 4, which I really can’t make out.
Let’s assume none of this crowd needs help with the allusion here!
Oh my, a sad-LOL from the Moon.
Well well, so the “Wake up and take your sleeping pill!” joke goes back a hundred years.
I suppose this does turn on word play, but it’s a LOL just as easily, and this list is maybe a touch short. (And ngl, I read it on Saturday evening so too late for today’s OYs and next week’s list isn’t set up yet.)
In modern times there are several cutesy invented terms for trimming the claws and otherwise taking care of the paws of our pets. But even now, as in the depicted early 20th Century, a “manicure parlor” is presumed to handle only human clients. The question is, Why would the reception be any different at a Chiropodist’s office?
