The Big Pumpkin Sur-Prize

We'll continue with this story and find out who is behind the vandalized pumpkin in a moment but first this blast from the past. An Archie comic strip from 1947 and some rather...unusual language.

"It gets kind of butthole at times"? This is an unedited Archie comic strip from April 2, 1947. The odds of 'butthole' being slang is very slim so this may be the work of an artist or letterer trying to have a little fun or a draft no one was supposed to see that ended up in rotation. Either way, there is an Archie comic out there with Archie calling a job 'butthole'.
