The Cow is Happy; Not So the Fish

Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact was a Roman Catholic comic book that ran every two weeks from 1946 to 1972, and contained a little bit of everything.  Here are two panels from a Lent feature.

Treasure Chest generated so much content that it was bound to be uneven. This particular story is striking, I think because it lurches back and forth between okay and awful so quickly. I find the punchline “I’m giving up back-biting” to be maximally awkward, especially given the body language of all three people in that last panel.
