I'm happy to have this weekend behind me, only one more summer school session and I'll be a free man for three weeks or so until fall semester starts up. I had to miss out on some really fun things like moving Holmes's heavy furniture up three flights of stairs, but I think I made the best of it. Hope your move went well, I'll try to make it to the next one!
And speaking of Holmes, he made the claim the other day that Peter Arno was the greatest single panel gag cartoonist ever. Now as much as I love Arno (and I do), Mr. Holmes seems to be glossing over another regular New Yorker contributor. Now I know his good name might be forever tarnished since MC Hammer rapped about his most famous ceation, but you cannot deny the genius that was Charles Addams! I submit the following for your inspection.
I do not have a date for this strip, other than the year 1955. It was lifted from the collection, Nightcrawlers, 1957.
