The "Doings of the Duffs"... they had me pegged even back in 1918
I ran across this blog entry from the San Luis Obispo Tribune today titled "Doings of the Duffs." Doings was apparently a comic strip that was nationally syndicated from 1915 through 1930... funny that I've never heard of it.
This particular strip strikes me as funny, however. If you've followed my blog for any time, you'll know I'm not the best when it comes to home repair. Apparently the same could be said for Mr. Duff in the strip, also.
Helen: Say, Tom. You had better phone for a plumber right away - a water pipe in the cellar is leaking! Tom: Plumber nothing! I'll fix it myself in a jiffy.
Tom: Let's see now. Do you turn a nut to the left or right to tighten it?
Tom: Helen - oh, Helen! Better see if you can get the plumber on the phone!
