Harry Bliss: Inspired by James Thurber

Harry Bliss's syndicated panel cartoon Bliss for December 11, 2017 seems to be inspired by a classic New Yorker gag by James Thurber.

"That's my first wife up there, and this is the present Mrs. Harris."
James Thurber
The New Yorker, March 16, 1935, page 33

Spot drawing by Maurice Freed (1911-1981) and cartoon by James Thurber (1894-1961)
