More Comic Strip Explanation...

I like it when people have recurring features on their blogs. I've tried a few (remember my short-lived interview series?), but I end up forgetting about them. I really enjoyed posting about Bazooka Joe and thought I'd tackle another thought-provoking comic, "Snuffy Smith".

Unfortunately, Snuffy himself is not present in this particular installment, but his presence is felt nonetheless. It starts out nice enough. Elviney drops by to give Loweezy a new peach recipe. Imagine Loweezy's consternation as she laments the thought of planting yet ANOTHER peach tree. You see, Paw (Snuffy, in this case), is under the assumption that you need to grow different peach trees for different dishes made from peaches, and has labeled them as such. The implication is that Snuffy is a hillbilly and, thus, quite dumb.

I like this feature. I didn't get the strip AT ALL until you explained it to me!

Ah! Now I get it!

Thanks, Chris!

Isn't Snuffy's picture posted right below the strip?

I love hillbillies!

You totally missed the symbolism. It's actually a very deep strip, Some Guy.

I don't think I've mentioned this before but my dad's uncle Jeeter was the model for Snuffy Smith.

I forget about my features too. Maybe that's why I'm not nearly as fabulous as Grant.

Wow, Snuffy still exists?

I don't think I've seen this since Carter.

I bet Snuffy butt-rapes canoeing tourists lost in the forest.
