Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?

Me neither. But it is that time of year, isn't it? And that's why I give you this cover from HERBIE #21, Oct.-Nov. 1966, featuring the story "The Plump Lump in 'Yay, Team!'"... I really don't have much to add... if you have ever read one of these studies in absurdism, you know what I mean. Merely summarizing a HERBIE plot would take longer than actually typing the entire comic in here, if that makes any sense. Which the comic doesn't. Let's just try to get our heads around the fact that Herbie is a football and an alligator (UF? GO 'GATORS!) in a football uniform is giving him the boot. My head hurts. I'm going to go lie down now.

My favorite thing about those old Herbie stories is how brutal his parents were... they always call him a "big fat nothing." These days, they'd be put in jail for their constant verbal abuse.

I haven't read a Herbie in years. I remember going to the doctors office as a kid and reading them there. There was always a pile of dog eared. bent, chewed on, Arhie's, Beetle Bailey's, and for some weird reason Herbie's. heh heh "the fat fury"
