This is interesting strip, local translations never had it even though they had this story line.
Zorro’s got nothing on our Linus! (contemporary joke, if you never saw the BW series you won’t get it)
Wasn’t there a commercial to that effect airing during the time this was printed?
Speaking of commercials: I remember the one with Robert Conrad daring someone to knock a battery off his shoulder.Probably available on ‘youboob’ right now.
Now now, Children!
Why not a chip of a shoulder?
Where’s Robert Conrad nowadays?
Thanx 4 a reel laff!
Never mess with a boy and his blanket..especially when the Great Pumpkin his on his side.
It brings up the question…..where did “knock this chip off my shoulder” come from anyway?
Linus “Minnesota” Van Pelt
dheine1971: Robert Conrad is still around — he’s 83 now..summerdog: “Chip on his shoulder” is one of those phrases that never did make much sense, and no one is sure exactly how it came about, but it’s been documented as far back as 1817. According to Yahoo! Answers, “The term ’Chip on his shoulder” was reported as originating with the 19th century U.S. practice of spoiling for a fight by carrying a chip of wood on one’s shoulder, daring others to knock it off."
Thanks for doing the research, Scaaty. I was thinking along those lines of where it came from.
Thanks for the replies, orinoco womble and Joe Cool.
Not really… The teachers at my College are very nice and helpful.
What are your school teachers like?
Reminds me of those William Conrad commercials where he dares you knock a battery off his shoulder.
Interesting, Bussy, thanks.
Don’t mess with Linus. Beneath his mild demeanor lies the heart of the Lion.
This is one that never made the collections. I have them all, so I know. It’s in one of the complete collections, though, I imagine. I have all of those up to date, but I don’t recall this one.
Indiana Jones would be proud.
Charlie Brown, you forget that your friend Linus is the Brain in your group.
