Good, clean humor has always
been a welcome addition to my day whether it come in the form of a printed comic strip,
a TV show, or someone's mouth. My father's side of the family was populated with many
jokesters who could be counted on to deliver an ad hoc pun or zinger at the appropriate
moment. The environment instilled a great appreciation for such entertainment, so these
electronics-themed comics that appeared in editions of Radio-Electronics,
Popular Electronics, et al, are a refreshing distraction from the workaday world.
An old saying claims "laughter is the best medicine," and while it cannot cure cancer,
a good dose of humor often helps ease the pain.

the wall at only half volume!"

describe, but it looks like this!"
