If he’d built a couple of dome furnaces to go with it, those last two panels might hav e looked more like the PRIVATES of industry…
dammit, where’s the LIKE button?
that, sir, was a damn fine pun
And this is why I ALWAYS read the comments in addition to the strip. It doubles the fun. Nice one!
hehe I always always always read the Bug comments, best ones on the web!
Yes indeed. Hat tip to you sir. “Privates of industry” indeed!
Somebody doesn’t know how to use the “Reply” button.
That “captain of industry” looks suspiciously similar to a colonel of chicken.
Captain of Industry Bug looks like he’s smokin’ a big ol’ Doob. Cannot be unseen. Just sayin’.
And yes, “Privates of Industry” was a good pun, sir. I doff my chapeau to you!
What the hell is a Doob?
Short for “Dooby” slang for a large marijuana joint.
In he late 1880-1890s America, smoking a large cigar was a status symbol. Anti-big business cartoonist of the era adopted the outsized cigar, the big belly, the monocle and the splayed front stance as icons of the big business leaders of their day. They were probably heavily influenced by the image of J.P. Morgan fused with Teddy Roosevelt.
Hey, smokestacks can be terrifying. Remember the huge bird in “It”?
I, however, have always been a mover and a shaker.
There’s a certain feeling one has after having used one’s talents, craftsmanship and mental abilities, after toiling mightily, and then standing back and seeing the result. And then, realizing that all that means nothing, one can relate to some little tiny insect out in the middle of nowhere, wanting to be appreciated, sigh. Bless his heart.
