Herriman Saturday

December 7, 1908 -- If anyone can explain this Herriman gag strip to me, I'd be much obliged. It can't really just be that the guys are peeved that they were 'conned' into making some odd noises and motions, right? Right?? That's just ... asinine!


Nope, that's all there is. A joker gets grown men to do something that makes them look foolish, then cuts and runs before they realize how stupid they look. I remember seeing this routine in an old (very old) comedy movie. I don't remember who the comedian was. Somebody who cribbed from Joe Miller's joke book, I suspect.
