If a kid slips on a banana peel in Norway he still falls down. — Ernie Bushmiller
In “Erniology”, the creator of the comic strip “Nancy”, Ernie Bushmiller, is honored as a holy fool sitting on his throne, while mayhem of his own making ensues. His koan-like comics (he wrote and drew about 14,000 of them) were easy to find and easy to read, but not always easy to comprehend.
I always figured Sluggo to be German-Irish and from the Bronx, because Ernie was, but Nancy would need Ancestry.com to explain that hair of hers.
