Just about everything I learned up to the age of five I learned from the comic strips. I learned, for example, to love spinach, and that the best spinach came in a green can, so I STILL eat only Del Monte canned spinach. Learned a couple of mantras, too. One of them was not merely OOOOMMMMMM but OM Mane Padme OM. (Don't remember which comic strip I got that from.) Another, of course, was "Nov Shmoz Ka Pop?" (from The Squirrel Cage, by Gene Ahern).
