no smoking

Mrs Bugg is all over the bugg womens’ movement, let me just tell you what. Even if it means taking up smoking.


Mr Bugg is an officer of the law, as evidenced by the star-shaped badge on his chest, and the billy club raised in his left hand. His right hand is pointing accusingly at Mrs Bugg, who stands with her hands on her hips, a defiant smile on her face and a lit cigarette between her lips. Her very expression is daring Mr Bugg to arrest her.

The text reads: “Janubug 21, 1908: New Bugg City passes the Bugglivan Ordinance, banning women from smoking.

P.S. That’s a billy club.”
