Actually, that’s about the way I understood Snagglepuss after studying Tennessee Williams. (As distinguished from, say, Tennessee Tuxedo.)
I cannot wrap my mind around this Bowling Green Massacre thing. What on earth are they thinking. Are these alternative realities they are trying to make real to the masses. I do not get it. I will go and read the links to the paper again. I am not sure that anyone gets it. What do you think. Can there be more to this than a simple error of some kind.
A slip of the tongue would explain a single utterance. A repeated misstatement means it’s a lie.

Huh? Snagglepuss is gay? Dragged in front of HUAC? All part of DC Comics’ Suicide Squad/Banana Splits Annual? Was that article some sophomoric attempt at satire by some short-lived online humor site that aspired to be a clone of The Onion? I mean, in what alternate universe is that for real?
The article Why It’s Free To Go Pee is misleading nonsense, but contains one of the real reasons why pay toilets disappeared. Since urinals did not have paywalls they were openly discriminatory to women. The other reason not mentioned was activism. I recall as a young teenager conspiring with grown men in bathrooms to subvert the pay toilets. We’d hold them open for the next person, find ways to prop them open, and jamming or vandalizing the pay mechanisms was generally approved of.
Confession: normally I hate reboots-intended-to-be-gritter, but I kind of love the idea of the Snagglepuss reboot. I think it’s because it’s fundamentally so goofy (The creature is a PINK MOUNTAIN LION, for goodness’ sake, there’s nothing at all serious about him and yet it sounds like it’s going to be srs issues in the comic), and yet, at the same time, given my memories of watching Snagglepuss cartoons as a child, so apt….
