Buford Tune in College Humor, August 1937

What a cartoon Buford Tune has in the August 1937 number of College Humor! This long-forgotten gem is a technically-plausible rendering of an absolutely preposterous pun, with a scantily-clad young woman (who doesn't seem to need the product she ordered) thrown in for good measure. Come on, what more do you want?

"Don't argue with me—I ordered a girdle!"
Buford Tune
College Humor, Vol. 5, No. 4, August 1937, page 38
Scanned by Dick Buchanan

Note:  Once again my thanks go to Dick Buchanan for putting his superb scanning skills to such good use. He contributes regularly to Mike Lynch Cartoons, most recently a silent piece called "'Captions? Who Needs 'Em?' Wordless Gag Cartoons 1947 – 1970."

Help put all this in perspective. Readers are welcome to contribute scans or photos of published rarities or original art by Buford Tune.

For biographical info, check out Ink-Slinger Profiles by Alex Jay: Buford Tune which appeared on October 20, 2014 in A Stripper's Guide.

Buford Tune published one and only one cartoon in The New Yorker, qualifying him as a member Ink Spill's One Club.
