...When I was a kid I was... uninformed, a bit slow to intuit stuff. Or think things through. Anyway, coming home from grade school, walking with Mike Foster in the alley behind his house, we passed by an old lady's house who was always chasing kids away from her apple tree even though some branches hung over her fence into the alley. "She's mean," sez I. "Yah, she's an asshole," said Mike, who was more worldly. Being... slow, I just pictured a donkey in a hole.
When I got home my mom asked how my day was & I immediately related the story of the walk, and used my brand-new word. "She's an ASSHOLE!" I thought my mom was gonna faint. That's sort of where this 'toon comes from...
