From the Dick Buchanan Files: The Old Joke Cemetary

Dick Buchanan has collected some twenty gag cartoon moldy oldies for your amusement. These are all culled from deep in his Greenwich Village cartoon file and are either vintage good or vintage bad jokes, depending upon your disposition. My thanks (?) to the "crackpot cartoon curator" for this! Take it away, Dick! (Honestly, a number of these seemed really funny to me.)


“Where the crab grass blooms again”

Here’s some of the vintage gag cartoons we recently snared in our recent old joke sting. Once captured, the old jokes are dusted off and herded into the Old Joke Cemetery. The best of these, or the worst, depending on your point of view, are displayed here. Rest assured many of these gags are even older than your friendly crackpot cartoon curator. That makes them genuine, certified and vintage. See for yourself . . .
