*Citation Needed.

Of course, now that it's on the Cellar, we can cite to it.

That's what I'm talking about. Anybody can edit wikipedia, and a statement like that one would normally be followed by a citation on wikipedia if it was true. Apparently Mort Walker isn't a topic that gets close scrutiny, and so an unsupported claim like this one can be up there for a while before it gets corrected.

Did you know

that Mort Walker invented a device for prevention of misdirection of urinary flow? The patent mentions Hypospadias(<--prolly NSFW wikilink), so, something must have been going on down there...

Ya gotta admit, though, "I couldn't be a Navy SEAL cuz my dick is too big." is an attention getter.

Your link was an attention getter. Dickbait, if you will.

So I was curious about that entry in wikipedia on his early life. The only citation for everything there is (p.35 Anderson, Captain John D. & Walker, Mort Mort Walker: Conversations Univ. Press of Mississippi, 28/01/2005)

But that page as found in Google Books, contains absolutely none of that information.

Name:  Page 35.jpg

I'm not somebody who has gotten into the whole maintaining Wikipedia articles thing, but that whole paragraph should be deleted since the citation bears no resemblance to what's on the cited page, although when you read the whole chapter that citation is from, it touches on a few of the things in that paragraph. But nothing about Mort's manhood.

Grav always has at least one good amusement each day.
I don't know where he gets them, but if Wikipedia is his source, all the better.

Looks like I got this outta the way early.


After a quick perusal of the book at the link in Glatt's post, all this amusement can be killed with these two quotes:

He didn't volunteer, for the Navy or the Army, he was drafted...There are no privates in the Navy (snicker).

So, there ya go.

Apparently not.

Ah, well.

Maybe the truth is not out there, after all. Trust no one.

Yeah the edit was made a few months ago by the user "BenStein69".

You figure it's the real Ben Stein?
