178. Murray Ox Cartoon

Q: Do you know the issue that presented a cartoon about Murray Ox, a hapless man whose fart left him shunned by his whole town? After twenty years he returned and he overheard a conversation recalling his famous lapse.

A: The sad tale of Murray’s Fart was a “Mule’s Diner” comic, in the Nov ’75 “Work” issue, page 109. (Thanks again to Karol for finding this.)

    I don’t recall what issue that was in, but it’s an episode of Stan Mack’s long-running comic-strip “Mule’s Diner”, probably ’75 or ’76.

    I thought so, too, but I looked up every single one I knew of and didn’t find it.

    The sad tale of Murray’s Fart has been located: it is indeed a “Mule’s Diner” comic, in the Nov ’75 ‘Work’ issue, page 109.

    Well, that explains why I didn’t find it. For some reason I thought the last Mule’s Diner strip ran in August 1974 and stopped looking. Thanks again, Karol!
