A Dizzy Dame Named Moronica!
With apologies to my female readers (if I haven't driven them all off already) today's politically incorrect selection comes from the notoriously titled Dizzy Dames #3, a delightful tale of a daffy damsel named Moronica!
Don't misunderstand, the rest of the issue was pretty dismal -and hair-raisingly sexist- stuff, but "Moronica: Miss Nit-Wit of 1953" has something the rest of the issue hasn't: the lively, wonderful cartooning of animation veteran Owen Fitzgerald! Also, and it may just be my fondness for the purty pictures speaking, but while Moronica is indeed moronic, none of the rest of the women in the story are especially "dizzy". Anyway, enjoy and/or be horrified!
