108. “Why—do we look crazy?”

October 24, 2006

Q: Looking for a copy of the cartoon that has two very looking crazy customers at a bar responding to the Bartender, “Crazy? Heck, no. Why—do we look crazy?”

A: The cartoon was by M.K. Brown and appeared in the May 1975 (Medicine) issue. You can also see it on Ms. Brown’s website (when you get there, click on “Panel Six” in the list on the left). (Thanks to Bill and Steve for this answer.)


It's from a "Mule's Diner" strip. Don't know which one.

That's by B. Kliban and one of his best. You can google him and find the site where many (unfortunately not that one) Kliban cartoons are reproduced. Buy his books! Wierdest guy EVER.
