    …wow… Do you actually LOOK for this stuff, or is it advertised in bight neon colors “Innuendos Inside”?

    When you’re as immature as I am, EVERYTHING jumps out at you with innuendo.

    On a more serious note, I churn through an awful lot of Golden Age Comics to get a relative handful of these. The further forward in time you go, the less likely you are to hit something funny, because the language has (obviously) shifted over time.

    On this particular panel, what really caught my eye was “I sponged off my father.” EEEEEWWWW!!!!

    That’s just so wrong…

    This reminds me of a line from an old Tom Lehrer song, “When correctly viewed, everything is lewd.”

    “I won’t take it back. I’m proud of what I’ve got, and that I’ve worked long and hard to get it. I won’t have you ramming any of my long, hard efforts down my throat.”
