…and what a strange conversation…
Barney Google? With the Goo- Goo- Googly Eyes? Turns out he was the feature character in what is now Snuffy Smith, but was written out, rarely to be seen again… Listen closely Mark, is Doc threatening a coup here?
Of course, we don’t give a fig for JJ himself… as the big cat breaks the fourth wall, looking pleadingly at the camera as if to say, “Please, write me out of this damn story…”
Got the shakes, there, Doc? Again, who cares about JJ? He was only good as the map holder, apparently. That’s what happens when gold fever strikes… it’s every man and woman for him/herself!
