Syd Hoff in College Humor, January 1940

Syd Hoff published three full-page gag cartoons in the January 1940 issue of College Humor. Roll 'em!

Time flies even when you're not having fun.
"Goodness! Is it a minute already?"
Syd Hoff
College Humor, January 1940, page 32

There was a time not so long ago when many of us had to wait in line to share public telephones. Stand in any line anywhere, then or now, to see just how uncanny it is that the most inconsiderate person will be at the very front of the line.
"Will someone fetch me a glass of water?  I'm parched."
Syd Hoff
College Humor, January 1940, page 44
