330. “Have you been eating snails again?”

August 4, 2011

Q: In which issue does the strip Timberland Tales conclude with Maurice ripping a nasty fart (Broomm Fraaap Breeet). As Nell swoons in the mounty’s arms he exclaims “Good God Maurice! Have you been eating snails again?” If I remember correctly, they are all at Nell’s cabin to celebrate Christmas. I use that line anytime someone farts in my presence.

A: That strip appeared in the June 1977 (I got my job through the…) issue in the Funny Pages section.


that was 'rock snails', and Maurice answered 'Ate little bit...'
